These screenshots for Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games may not inspire the recoiling horror of the new Sonic Riders or, worse, Cruis'n, but they certainly don't reflect an Olympic-caliber effort. We know that the Nintendo fan's mantra is "gameplay over graphics," but that doesn't mean we should roll over and accept sub-Gamecube graphics on what should be a flagship title worthy of the historic pairing of franchises contained within. At least it's got archery. Archery's pretty fun.

To the Sega employees responsible for taking the screenshots: we just wanted to let you know we appreciate your slightly subversive effort to make sure Sonic is dead last in nearly every footrace screen, behind such noted speedsters as Yoshi and Dr. Eggman.
