Pocket Gamer's Mike Rose writes: "Some of the games are downright dull, no matter whether the controls are clever or not. You also get the occasional game that has rather confusing controls. And the supply of new events dries up fairly quickly, as you'd expect. Once you've played each of the events a few times, you'll most likely not be very eager to play them again. However, before that happens Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games is plenty of fun, for kids as well as grown-ups."
