Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 Review

Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 reviewed by David Jagneaux on Nintendo Switch.

As we've come to expect from these bi-annual crossover minigame collections, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games: Tokyo 2020 packs a colorful and recognizable cast and a fair amount of fun into exciting, bite-sized mini-games that highlight some of the most iconic events in the Olympics. But there are also some duds, including a painful story mode. Even though the colorful and recognizable cast of characters injects a great amount of diversity and personality into the events, the relatively small retro sampling and lackluster multiplayer features hold it back from scoring Gold.

For more, read the extended review on IGN.com.

I give this game an 8/10. It isn't a bad game. It is weird that they gave Sonic Forces a better rating than this game. I have so much fun with the Olympic minigames, such as soccer, dream racing, and table tennis. Sonic Forces is way less exciting than this game. Ign's ratings of Sonic games on the Nintendo Switch: Sonic Mania: 8.7/10 Team Sonic Racing: 8.5/10 Sonic Forces: 6.9/10 Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games: 6.4/10

IGN - "Sonic is in it. It's bad? 4.8" This is why Sega doesnt localize anything. I had to import Tokyo 2020.

Nintendo should have just ported the Wii version over, like they've done with everything else. That version is the better game!

IGN is well known for having biases against Sonic games, So take everything they say with a grain of salt.

Nintendo is really losing it. Let's make a party game for the family and friends and let's just not allowed them to play the Olympics between them, how about we let them just play a bunch of mini games? BRILLIANT!!!
