Summary: I received this game as a Christmas gift and having never heard of it, was pretty excited to check it out. However, after around 30 minutes of frustration, I just couldn't take it any more. Most of the reviews on this game pretty much sum up why this is so bad but there are a few things that stand out most to me, such as: The pathetically small number of events, the dead unrealistic feel, and the painfully long process of re-trying or switching an event... ugh!
Summary: This is quite possibly the worst game I have ever played on the PS2, or for almost any system for that matter. I'd rather bring out my Super Nintendo and play that instead of this boring piece of .... The graphics are bad, the sound [stinks], the gameplay's slow as ..., and to top it all off there are only 6 events, which are all equally terrible. I mean 6 events in a Winter Olympics game?? Give me a break this is an 128 bit system here. It's tolerable..
Summary: Salt Lake 2002 is not a bad game, but it isn't good either. The graphics are excellent, but some of the events are bad. Bobsleigh, and skiing aren't bad but the others are. You dont stay into it for long. I liked it for a while, but it gets boring.
Summary: Graphics are excellent and it is fun to play, but WHY ONLY SIX EVENTS?! WHERE IS THE SPEED SKATING?! Play control is difficult and not very intuitive. If you are an Olympics enthusiast as I am, it is probably worth buying. Otherwise, I suggest you pass this video game up. The 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics deserve better than this. Note: I purchased this game for my P2 in the vain hope it was superior to the PC version. It was virtually the same.
Summary: ... I bought the ps Nagano '98 a long time ago thinking that it would be just like the N64 version. In stark contrast, it was horrible. I saw Salt Lake 2002 at my local rental store,looked at the back cover and thought that in no way could they possibly turn out another game as poor as Nagano, and I should give it a shot. So, i rented it. I am sorry to say it's just as bad, and actually worse. I couldn't even get through thirty minutes of it.
