Tween Review of Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games 2020
A new way to enjoy the Olympics with Mario and Sonic! There are a variety of events to choose from like fencing, boxing, surfing, swimming, and much more.
The game isn’t difficult to learn to play and you can always get tutorials for the events. One of my favorite features of this game is that it has a story mode. I love games with stories and Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games did not disappoint me. I also love the fact that you can play in the 2020 Olympics and the 1964 Olympics. I don’t really think any of this game needs changing at all. It is great in every way and I think Nintendo did another great job.
