  • Summary: A solid satisfying sports simulation that continuous to improve each Olympic year. The introduction of campaign mood is not worth your time, although I found the game really shins in its athletics events. At its core you will find a lot of fun especially on multiplier where players are still kicking! Overall this game will appeal to many sports fans and is differently worth you'r time!

  • Summary: This game is f*cking awful, it seems this game promotes guns, because the only somewhat playable events are, the shooting events, some how Eurocom manages to bring out another pile of wich claims to be the next big sports game.

  • Summary: This game isn't bad, but isn't good. Some events are very easy to play like archery, swimming, discus, shooting, but much of them are unplayable!!!!!!!

  • Summary: i really love sports games but this has to be the most frustrating out of the lot and i have to agree with shayneG that you will destroy a controller playing this game. you will give this game five mins and never return to it, its that bad.

  • Summary: Possibly the worst game I have ever played. You basically have to wreck your controller in order to get anywhere in the events. For example, I spent 5 minutes spinning the right thumbstick of my controller as fast as I could for one of the cycling events only to come last.

Problems!!!!

  • Summary: Bought this game as soon as it came out, couldn't wait for there to be an olympic themed game. I played this game for about 40 minutes when it suddenly froze on my system. I wasn't sure if it was the system or the game so I tried other titles on the system (PS3) and they worked fine. When I went to return the game I was told by the salesman that I shouldn't have bought it so soon because their might have been glitches in the game.

Super game

  • Summary: I really love this game! It's very challenging, yet easy enough to be competitive the very first day you play it. You will easily find this game addictive and will spend multiple hours playing it. Some of the controls are tricky at first, but you will soon figure it out and find them to be fun and unique. The number of events is overwhelming, so it will take a while for you to get bored of the game. The online is simple awesome, Sega spent a lot of time in this area.

THIS is the Olympics

  • Summary: As a gamer, a competitor, someone that enjoys playing against and beating (or losing to..) my cousins, I have to say that this is an excellent game. The last Olympic/Track and Field was okay but this one is far above it. It's like you're almost participating in the Olympics. There are so many events to compete in the usual track (100m to 1500 m, hurdles, etc.), field (shot put, discuss, high jump, long jump, etc.), swimming...

  • Summary: I love playing games like this, but find this one somewhat difficult to control. I would much rather stick to the Mario & Sonic versions of each Olympic Games for Wii

  • Excerpt: "Even though I am a big fan of the Olympics I didn't really want to buy this game. That is until I played it at a friends house. Even then I still didn't really want to buy it, but the more I thought about it the more I wanted to get it. So I did. The career mode is quite fun to play through. Each day you have around 6 events to compete in, some are medal events and some are qualifiers. On each day you have to reach the medal target set for that ...
  • Pros: Excitement, Number of Events
  • Cons: Blisters, Controller Damage
