London 2012 - The Official Video Game of the Olympic Games Review

VideoGamer.com
8 September 2012
  • Excerpt: London 2012 is pretty good for an Olympics brand extension video game . As unfair as it sounds to qualify any compliment I may be about to bestow on SEGA's officially licensed tie-in for the London Olympics, the game's subgenre is a yardstick all prospective punters should bear in mind before they...

  • Conclusion: London 2012 doesn't scrimp on quantity when it comes to the main, controller-compatible games it offers, but some of the 30-odd games are worse than others. Trampoline, vault and diving are nothing more than quicktime events, and scoring can be infuriating, as the judge's temperament seems to vary...
  • Pros: Some fun, well-thought-out minigames, Encapsulates the excitement of the Games.
  • Cons: No lasting appeal, Dull solo campaign, No practice mode.

  • Excerpt: Sega’s really made use out of the Olympic Games license like no publisher before. Not only are we getting a different sports game collection every two years, but they also are putting out the extremely popular Mario and Sonic Olympic based titles.

  • Excerpt: London 2012 - The Official Video Game of the Olympic Games Ironically, this is not the first video game to celebrate the 2012 London Olympic Games as SEGA also released Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games, however this incarnation for the PC, PS3 and XBox 360 is far more realistic and...

Review: London 2012 – The Official Video Game of the Olympic Games (PS3)

Techtree
7 August 2012
  • Excerpt: So, here's the thing about the Olympics: apart from the 50+ crowd of oldies that grew up with running, jumping, and throwing things around as the only means of entertainment, it's hard to find a group of people that is genuinely excited about the games, or really cares for its significance.
  • Pros: Looks great; Some events are genuinely fun; Playing with friends is a blast.
  • Cons: Lots of missing events; Surprising lack of official teams; Occasionally glitchy controls; Name is way too damn long.
