Well it is pretty much a bunch of mini games. There is a competition mode where your selected certain events but have not done that yet. I think its just placing in the top 3 in each event. and unlocking new ones.

I think "No More Heros" has pretty much the perfect combination. I'm not limited to what I can do based on my fitness level (other than the bench press at the gym :-P ), but I still feel like it is a challenge.

Does Mario vs. Sonic have any sort of plot to it, or is it just more mini-games?

That is interesting, thanks for the info. Developing for the Wii needs to be a happy medium between using the motion sensing and the fun factor. I think Mario Galaxy nailed this mix perfectly. Not too much movement to get you tired, but just enough to keep it fun.

Another good one is the No More Heroes. There are a couple of mini games you use at the "gym" to build your character up which require lots of arm movement. But, that is a very small portion of the game. The rest is blended nicely with tapping the "a" button and then using arm movements for finishing moves.

Well I love Wii Sports and I do not think anything will replace it. Mario vs Sonic Olympic is a hard game if you can not get your arms pumping up and down to make your character run faster. Oh I forget to mention that you can use your Mii in the game. That is awesome. I have not tried it yet but I am sure to see what it looks like to go up again sonic and mario. Rating 6 out of 10

That is pretty cool. How would you rate it on the fun factor? How does it compare to something like Wii Sports?

Man, does this game make my arms tired especially with the track and field events. Pumping your arms up and down will make you sore the next morning. This game is another good workout for your arms as well as hand and eye coordination. There is table tennis, skeet shooting, and fencing. There are still more stuff to check out but, there are so many events. Gynmastics, Swimming, and others are just a few to name.
