At first i fort this game was abit rubbish, but now that ive got the hang of it im quite enjoying it. Sum minigames i realli cannot do like pingpong and swimming, but then there are other games that are easy as nefing like the running, theres absolutly loads to do on it tho, the multiplayer is crap cuz u can only play like 6 games and there the worst ones lol

The first thing you will notice about this game on the DS is the brilliant graphics, they really have done a good job of converting this to the hand held console and looks almost as good as the wii version (please see my review). I was quite surprised at how much they have managed to cramp onto the small cartridge and, like the wii version, it is one of the most comprehensive games for the DS. Although this isn't quite as good as the wii game as some of the games are slightly easier to lay and complete, they are still good fun and a very good challenge.

The best thing about the game though is the more you play it, the more you unlock and there are some brilliant additions to the game in there. These include more events which will add so much more to the gameplay and will require different skills to master. In fact I would say this is one of the biggest games on the DS because there is so much to do and unlock. For example getting silver medals may unlock emblems or getting gold's may unlock other events. Sometimes all you need to do is take part in an event a few times and something will be unlocked which can be very rewarding and makes you want to play it more.

Archery is really good fun and brilliantly done on the DS as it requires quick reactions and a steady hand. pulling back with the stylus will give you a target to hit and you must try and line this up with another target to shoot it straight. Sounds complicated but it works really well and when you factor in the wind it can be a little bit more tricky to score higher points.

The track events require different skills again and will have you moving the stylus from side to side to build speed in the running events, but in the long jump you will also then need to draw a diagonal line at the right time to make the jump.

All in all this is well worth buying as it is fun, challenging and has brilliant graphics and gameplay. Not quite as good as the wii version but gets an honorary gold medal.

In the 90's they were rivals, mortal enamies and destined never to be seen out together in public. But now it's the 00's.

It's Mario and It's Sonic together on your DS, just shut up and buy it!!!

  Fab!!

This was the first game i got for my DS and I'm so glad that I chose it! It keeps you entertained for hours. Not only are there the single events to compete in, but missions for each character and circuits which start at beginner and go up to advance. There are also lots of mini games to play in the gallery, and if you unlock all of these, you gain knowledge about the olympics and unlock new discs to out into the jukebox! The game also makes great use of the stylus and the microphone. Before playing the game though, make sure that you get a screen protector and have plenty of stylus' at hand! I would recommend this game to everyone.

This game is great fun to play on because its got loads of events on it. It even has dream events on there like basketball. There is a decent amount of characters to choose from. There are also mini games you can play on. I had fun playing on this game as it was really competitive.
