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.

The delay between versions should have been used to improve what was already there, instead we get a smaller game with a prettier face.

Mario and Sonic aim for gold but just about scrape bronze, a good effort but more training is required.

Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games is a fair product. It still shows some quality difference between the various disciplines, and its AI is not well balanced, but it's worth to play it with friends or family, as it can give moments of fun and lightheartedness with its multiplayer mode.

Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympics for the 3DS is not exactly a bad game - especially if you liked previous entries in the franchise - but it could be so much more. This is the fifth iteration of the series and by this stage the team should have nailed down what makes a game click and what doesn't. Sadly this effort just doesn't come together in the way it should do, and feels just like another sloppy effort to cash-in on a lucrative license. Bring out the pewter medals for this one.
