Acceptable fodder for undemanding children, but wasting such an epic crossover on such a non-event of a game has never seemed more perverse.

Mario & Sonic At The Rio Olympics 2016 is a solid entry in the series that will provide some undemanding multiplayer fun, as well as a modicum of single player enjoyment. However, a few too many missteps, from the lack of online to some events that don't hit the mark, unfortunately stop this from being anything but overwhelmingly average.

If you're looking for a game to take the place of titles like London 2012 or Beijing 2008, then bypass this one. However, if you're after a game that can offer a few hours of fun for your family a week this summer, this is a must-have. There's not a lot of replay value, but if you have the proper expectations, it's hard to be disappointed with MASAR 2016.

Mario and Sonic meets again and the result is... kinda boring. While the game presentation is nice and colorful, its mechanics are too shallow.
