  • 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 ironically plays better in our professional opinion.

Review - London 2012

Game.ie
27 June 2012
  • Summary: Ah the Olympics! It’s that time again where the finest athletes in the world square up against each other in a race for the gold medal across a series of track, field, pool and gym based events and, unsurprisingly, there’s a tie-in game to go along with it. Those of you of a certain age will no doubt have fond memories of joystick waggling days gone by, wasting countless hours trying to beat your personal best across each event, and it’s you who’ll most enjoy what’s on...

  • Summary: London 2012 is a fun Olympic based game that looks and sounds the part and has some fun sports included. Longevity remains the question though, will you play it when the party's over? We're not so sure.

London 2012 review

18 July 2012
  • Conclusion: Ignoring the Kinect compatibility, London 2012 is a very good title which has a lot to offer. The large selection of events, as well as online and offline multiplayer mean interest in the game should continue once the Olympic flame has left these shores. Throw in online leaderboards that record your best time or score for each event and you have another tick in the box for London 2012.
  • Pros: Large selection of events. Online multiplayer. More than button bashing needed.
  • Cons: Kinect integration is poor.

  • Conclusion: If you're anything like us the Olympics is more about sitting down in a couch being glued to the TV set and eating crisps than about actual physical endeavours. And as luck would have it Sega have us catered to with a game that requires more brain and quick fingers than bulging muscles and athletic prowess.
  • Pros: + Large selection of events. + Good background given by commentators. + Some events are very addictive.
  • Cons: - Minor graphical flaws. - Motion controls are somewhat off. - Monotonous in the long run.

Test zu London 2012

4 October 2014
  • Excerpt: Wie viele Competition Pro Joysticks sind Decathlon und Summer Games in der goldenen C64-Ära zum Opfer gefallen? Wie viele Gamepads sind beim Dauer-Button-Mashing von Virtua Athlete zerbrochen? Denn früher da waren Leichtathletik- und Olympia-Spiele vor allem eins: Harte Arbeit! Im 100 Meter Sprint von Decathlon rüttelten wir voller Inbrunst den roten Steuerknauf des Competion Pros hin und her.

  • Summary: London 2012 er absolut en titel, der hæver niveauet for genren. Det er et virkelig godt spil, der tilbyder en fin grad af realisme, hvor man føler at man selv er 'til stede' i den enkelte disciplin. Er man vild med spor på sin konsol, er dette et spil, man er nødt til at eje.

  • Summary: Olympia-Simulationen haben eine lange Tradition. Bereits in den 80er Jahren waren Spiele mit simplen Namen wie Summer oder Winter Games dafür verantwortlich, dass übereifrige Zockerhände tausende C-64-Joysticks ins Jenseits beförderten. Später wurden die interaktiven Sportspektakel dann etwas hardwarefreundlicher, deutlich aufwändiger und immer umfangreicher.
  • Pros: Abwechslungsreiche und durchdachte Steuerung, Großer Multiplayer-Spaßfaktor, Technisch gelungen
  • Cons: Mäßige Kinect-Herausforderungen, Keine "echten" Sportstars

  • Excerpt: Nu är sommar-OS över för denna gång men för er som vill drömma om fler svenska medaljer är SEGAs officiella spel faktiskt ett rätt så bra alternativ. När det gäller officiella spel i OS sammanhang är det annars en inte alltför munter läsning. Första spelet som kom var Olympic Gold vid Barcelona 1992 och sedan dess har det alltid funnits ett officiellt OS-spel och inget av dem har varit någon höjdare.
