Mario & Sonic at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games Review Summary

FairCritic Consensus

Simple Pleasures

The latest in the series still provides the charm.

Story Mode Doesn't Qualify

Though the premise is always silly, this year's entry lacks staying power.

Bronze Medal

Across the board, the game makes apparent its lower budget.

It's great that Mario and Sonic can come together like this so often, even if the game isn't great itself. With budget-game look and feel, this year's Olympic effort doesn't quite make the team.

Metro GameCentral

A serviceable mini-game compilation with some moderately interesting highlights, held back by peculiar design decisions and little replay value.

A wealth of entertaining events, accessible control options, and a competent story mode make for the best-ever entry in this simple series.

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 offers a glimpse of what the series could be if it fully committed to a story mode or really invested in becoming a sportier companion to Mario Party. Most of the minigames are fairly strong and the whole package is dripping with polish. As far as minigame collections go, this one can carry the torch just fine—but maybe it's not the one you pick to light the fire at game night.

It’s a fun party game to whip out at social gatherings, which is what it was designed to be after all, but it could have been so much more.

I'm as surprised as you are that I had so much fun with this one. Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020's retro suite is compact but it kicks everything up a notch, which is an easier sell for newcomers. Just make sure you have at least one friend to prolong the fun with once the story is over and done.

As a multiplayer experience, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games: Tokyo 2020 can be consider the "1-2 Switch" of this Xmas, a fun game that is enjoyed when playing with friends, even if it lacks events and story mode feels short and child oriented. If you want it to play alone, there are better options...
