Review: Mario and Sonic 2020 is let down by clumsy gameplay

Though bold and colourful and accompanied with a dazzling score, Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games 2020's clumsy gameplay lacks the polish we've come to expect from games emblazoned by that iconic little plumber.

  • 8-bit and 16-bit graphics are a delightful touch
  • Wonderful to see Sonic, Mario and co. once again team up
  • Imprecise motion-control
  • Story mode is slow and tedious
  • Lack of meaningful replayability
2 / 5
