Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 Video Review – Going For Gold Once Again

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 Video Review

The Summer Olympics may be a bit far off at the moment, but what better time than to set into the latest entry in the Mario & Sonic At The Olympic Games series with it’s latest entry? Keeping in line with the real-life event, Mario and Sonic and crew are off to the Tokyo Games, but with a bit of a twist this time. Mario and Sonic are in hot pursuit of Bowser and Eggman, and between a mix of modern events and “retro moments” the game certainly has a fair bit of charm. There’s a lot to get into though, so it’s probably best to just watch our video review of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 and see what it’s all about.

As noted above, and a newer addition to the series, Mario & Sonic At the Olympic Games 2020 features a rather robust story mode. I’ts not overly amibitious, but it servers as a nice introduction to the myriad of events you can undertake. They aren’t all standouts, but the sheer variety of them helps offset what shortcomings the game has overall. A new feature is the aptly named “Retro Moments’, and they’re a blast to play through. De-making everything into Mario and Sonic’s retro roots, you’ll get to experience these events in story mode in a new light. There’s also the standard means of playing against people online and locally as there always has been before, but this added emphasis of Story Mode is a real treat, and hopefully they’ll expand it further in the future.
