This is an awsome game that is definitely a great buy. It has exellent olympic avents that are just flat out enjoyable and interactive. And, no matter your age level or experience in gaming, you can easily get into this game with easy events like the Running event, and later get into the more difficult ones like the Long Jump or Pole Volt. Archery is awsome and was definitely my favorite. Also, with different types of characters, it is easy to find one that is just right for you (like always Mario is it for me). You also can transfer your Mii as a character, and I loved playing with my Mii for a change on a grapical game. The only issue is a little bit of violence, but it is only present in Dream Race, Dream Platform, Dream Fencing, and Fencing. You can knock people over in Dream Pingpong, but that isn't violent, more hilarious. Also, characters normally display a very good character about losing saying stuff like, "Oh, it's not that bad." However some will say, "Unbelievable," or "I'll get you next time," but they do the later one in a more loving way then the vengful way. It is awsome and anyone can play it. The only downside is that the events get somewhat boring after a while. If you homeschool, this is a perfect activity for Physical Education.
