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.
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.
Entertaining - especially when playing with others

Conclusion: A great game to sit around with family and compete with each others, some of the controls for certain events are extremely poor and sometimes don't make much sense in accordance with the event. However, its good fun to play with the family in light heartedness
Summary: I am a huge fan of button bashing games like the Olympic ones that come out. Some of my favourites are the good old Olympic Gold (1992) and Athens (2004). This one has great potential. Nearly 40 events are included although many of them are very similar.
Summary: Really good game, great fun. Took me a while to get used to the controls but now I no them most of the events are easier. But I just can't get the hang of the running no matter how much I toggle the analogue sticks or mash x and o the runner won't go any faster and I always come in last place.
Summary: WELL I GOT THIS GAME AND SAID WOW WHAT A GAME THIS IF YOU HAVE COMPETITON WITH PS3 OR WITH YOUR MATES AS 100M 200M 400M PISTOL SHOOTING AND LOADS MORE EVEN TABLE TENNIS APART FROM THAT ALL EVENTS THERE I WILL GREAT ON LINE TO THE ONLY DOWN SIDE TO THIS IS SAGA HAVE NOT LEFT NO ROOM TO SET YOUR OWN...
Summary: When I first downloaded the demo for this - I was skeptical. But, after inviting 3 of my mates round we were hooked on it. The 3 games in the demo had us entertainned for hours! Even tough so parts are hard, the makers have done a good job varying the controls so theres soemthing in it for everyone.
Summary: Due to bad reviews, i wasnt expecting much from this game but i though id give the game the benefit of the doubt.... the CRITICS R STUPID! This game is so much fun to play: feels good to break records, good challenge to learn each even, fun to play against friends, 2player online!
