Very good

Well, sports might not have been the best genre for the first Mario and Sonic cross-over (just a collection of events), but I think this game did the best it could to simplify the skill differences between the two franchises. It pulled it off really well. In fact it rocked. You...read full review

Too bad it couldn't be an adventure game. Still, good choice. I must get this.

This game will be interesting, I can tell.

I'll consider getting this as I love sonic and mario (mario more).

They'll most probably mess up.

People will buy this game because it has 2 of the most recognizable video game characters in the world.

No joke Wii Freak. Their personalities won't be as they are in their own games. Which is a shame, but I'll still get it.

Crimson Hawk said:

I don't know if I should get the game or not. I mean, if it wasn't a sports genre (I am not into sports that much, no offense to people who are), but it was a adventure/fighting genre, I might consider getting it.

And here's the results! Mario in first, Sonic second, and goomba in third! *Classic Mario Overworld plays with mushroom kingdom flag rising*.

Interesting. Never thought I'd see this coming.

Let's hope everyone will have their own attributes. Mario & Sonic could be the balanced players.

Let's hope an official screws up the scores and mario and sonic fight.

Dave Falcon, that'd only work if they were playing Hockey.

This game is set in the official settings of the 2008 bejing games. But I must say, some of the games look strange - "engage in exhilarating battles of table-tennis".

SSonic22 said:

Both of them are good in aspects. Sonic speedier, and Mario the jumper or swimmer. So Sonic wins in the 100m and Mario in swimming, maybe Mario has more practice in athleticism, but in a fight Sonic would kick Mario's ass.

Just imagine: Bowser vs Eggman in the 100-yard dash!

I can't wait until we see Mushroom Kingdom athletes getting banned for illegal mushroom use.

Steve said:

SSonic22, in a fight Mario would have to win. Sonic can jump and spin, mario can hammer, jump, and shoot fireballs, you know how cheap those things are.

Avatar

SSonic22 said:

No way, Sonic can turn into an unstoppable ball and cut him in half, or use chaos control. All of you think Sonic can just run and spin, you haven't played Sonic Battle, even though forget everything, he would just turn into saiyan *cough* Super Sonic, and that's it.

If sonic is in the olympics with mario, why can't the blue hedgehog come to brawl?

I JUST found out that Bowser, Eggman, Peach AND Cream are set to appear. I can't wait.

What is this? Mario is tied in a race with Sonic.

Sweet, finally some screenshots. Run mario & sonic, run!

And the game actually has good graphics, yay.

It looks to me like Sonic has to walk in order to keep up with Mario.

It seems to me that Sonic has to WALK to keep up with Mario.

Good, Sega knows that Knuckles is more of a main character than Shadow, thank god.

B Darius said:

Yo! I JUST found out that Amy is going to appear as well.

Luigi said:

Picking this up for sure.

Anyone know if cream is playable?

Avatar

B Darius said:

Well, she's in the screenshot. She might be.

Avatar

SSonic22 said:

Nope Cream, Toad and Lackitu will be referees. Of course they were running at the same pace for the shot, it's obvious. They confirmed it will have 20+ characters, Shadow will be in it (theres a flag of him). They are saying that Wario, Blaze, Silver, Omega, Rouge, Daisy and some others will be in it too. The sad part is NO STORY, but just having the 2 most iconic mascots in the world together is enough.

Aw man, no story? Where'd you hear that from?

Finally I can kick Sonics hind. But maybe I will change my mind, since Sonic and the secret rings was good.

Sonic is way better than mario.

B Darius said:

Everyone has different opinions, but this is a fact. Mario has a lot more characters than Sonic.

Avatar

Captain Jamesman said:

Now that you mention it Darius, there seems to be more characters in Mario than Sonic. I've been hearing criticisms about too many characters in Sonic, but Mario has 10 times more and it never got any criticisms about it. I think people are putting Sonic down too much.

Goosenapper said:

Check out the crowd detail in the last shot. It doesn't appear to be an ocean of cardboard cut-outs, like most games. If that attention to detail is any indication, this could be a very well-made game. I only hope you don't have to pump the wiimote and nunchuck to simulate running legs in the races. That would get old quick.

Avatar

B Darius said:

The thing about Sonic Characters is that once they appear in a game, they're never heard from again! For example, Nack the Weasel, Bean the Dynamite, Bark the Bear, Mighty the Armadillo, Ray the flying Squirrell, Metal Knuckles, Tails Doll, Egg Robo, Miphiles, Erazor Djinn, Black Doom. The list goes on and on.

Avatar

Sonic Phantom said:

Old time characters like Bean, Bark, Mighty and Ray, they weren't the most popular characters back then. I doubt a lot of people would understand who they are. That's the reason they don't show up. The only character I would not mind at all coming to the Sonic games would be Fang the Sniper. That is his original Japanese name. "Nack the Weasel" sounds hectic in my opinion. Miphiles is spelled "Mephiles". Those last three bosses could up show up again one day. I know that the Sonic games have definitely improved.

Captain Jamesman said:

There are certain Mario characters that don't make another appearance in a game. Say for examples, Brighton & Twila from Mario Party 6, plus Mallow & Geno from Super Mario RPG (even though Geno made one cameo in Mario & Luigi GBA).

Avatar

B Darius said:

Well, Brighton and Twila were only specifically for Mario Party 6. In case you guys didn't know, Brighton is the sun and Twila is the moon. The two of them were fighting, and you had to collect enough power stars to stop them fighting.

Tommy said:

What about the characters from sonic riders, espio, charmy, vector and I reckon big will be in too. Shadow and rouge are definitely in.

I think the come looks cool. My little bro wants it for his Nintendo DS Lite. Go Sonic. Trip Mario. Do it for poor Sega. GO.

Skull Hawk said:

I really want to see chaos or blooper in that game. Anyway when I heard about this game, I thought this was a terrible idea. But as I read about more and more I'm getting to like it.
