    The Olympics is always fail, but you won't believe the amount of fail the UK will be able to pack into this one. That will be the challenge for the devs here, can they make all 50 mini games bad enough to make your soul weep and kill you just little inside, so you don't notice the downward slope into total apathy you're on until it's too late. That's what they'll have to do to get the spirit of the British public in there.

    >_> God not again. WHY?

    WHY?

    Do these games really sell that well still?..

    That is sad.

    I really enjoyed the previous winter DS title, haven't had a chance to play the Wii one. The Mario Kart racing games were a lot of fun. If they have that in this one, I might consider trying out the 3DS one.

    This.

    I dunno why people dislike the series.

    They're actually quite fun.

    I love the minigames and the winter title also had a mini RPG.

    Looking forward to this.

    See, I misread this to be defined as:

    Mario and Sonic ACTUALLY going to be at the London 2012 Olympic Games.

    At which point I would've said: DAMN gotta get me an opening ceramony ticket!

    Severely Disappointed >.

    i guess if a title comes out after a couple of years with little iteration but the same concept then ppl hate it. I guess its not correct to think so. Do note that recently a ubi game "sports collection" had been released which in my O is unmatchable in terms of quality and quantity (two elements at once not individually). Its one of those must haves for a ds player (or 3ds these days)

    i wonder how nice the graphics can get for this considering that olympics (this series) has always been big models and quite shiny. Love to see what they can do!

    By the way, never knew there was olympics next year hehe... guess it will be enjoyable along with euro 12

    I kinda enjoy these titles. Especially the Winter one was really well made. Curling was so much fun with friends!

    Sounds like it will be shit, especially since Summer Olympics events are so dire and boring you would be better off watching paint dry.

    I liked the Winter Olympics one, but the other game was pretty crappy. I'll still give this a shot though.

    You clearly didn't know that it's SEGA that handles the Olympic Games, games.

    I'll take both, please.

    Seriously. I'd love a Mario Party 3DS with online support. As long as it supports replacing dropped out players with CPU's, voice chat, and a variety of mini games - I'm all game.

    Aww... I'm thinking that the game's in DS, but the game's only for 3DS and Wii. [​IMG]
