  • Excerpt: Decent games based on the Olympics (Winter or Summer) are hard to come by. Looking back, you’d have to go all the way back to 1992 to find the last one ‘ the excellent Olympic Gold for the Megadrive. Many of the licences have been completely wasted, others just left to rot in a sea of mediocrity.

  • Excerpt: Every four years, the world's best at their respective sport gather for the Olympics. Torino, Italy is the site of this year's games, and I was ecstatic when I was presented with the opportunity to review 2K Games' foray into multi-sport competition.

  • Excerpt: In modeling the Winter Olympics, there isn’t as large a diversity as there is for summer games simply because fewer events are available. So it comes as a surprise that 2K Sports would skip out on covering every sport available including some notable ones like ice hockey, figure skating and if they were only going for passive titles why not curling? It’s clear from the very generic audio commentary that even within these events there is no shining star.

The winter blues.

  • Conclusion: If that's even possible. The Winter Olympics might not have the appeal of the Summer Games, but there's still plenty of interesting gameplay conventions to explore. Unfortunately, Torino 2006 is so wildly uninspired, so entirely rote in its design that it barely qualifies as decent merchandising even at its discounted $20 price. The GR judge gives this one the finger.
  • Pros: Costs $20
  • Cons: And isn't worth it, Bad, boring gameplay, No anthems?!, Not online, No depth

  • Excerpt: The winter blues. Keep the kids indoors and start sucking down Vitamin C - Winter Olympics fever is in the air! That's right, the world is buzzing with interest as hundreds of athletes from tens of countries like descend upon Torino, Switzerland , uh, Norway , er, Denmark , aha, ITALY in an effort to realize their Olympic dreams. It's such a big deal this year, it might actually be on TV!

Torino Olympics Games 2006

Game-Focus
2 March 2014
  • Summary: En conclusion, 2K sports se sont tirés une balle dans le pied avec ce jeu. À moins d’aimer les Jeux Olympiques comme un fou, ce jeu ne vaut pas plus qu’une location. Les graphiques sont très loin de ce que 2K Sports nous ont habitués par le passé, le son est très ordinaire et les commentaires répétitifs, ennuyants et sans vie. La présentation est correcte. Il n’y a pas assez de compétitions et avec seulement deux modes, la durée du jeu est loin d’être satisfaisante.
  • Pros: -les vrais mordus des sports d'hiver y trouveront peut-être quelque chose d'intéressant
  • Cons: -Graphique simpliste -Bande de son pitoyable -Peu de sports différents accessibles -Présentation minable

  • Excerpt: Les Jeux Olympiques, il y a ceux qui y participent, ceux qui les commentent, ceux qui les regardent et ceux qui, comme nous, préfèrent les vivre virtuellement. Cette année, c'est Take Two qui s'y colle pour nous offrir une vision plutôt réussi du "Petit Coubertin à la neige".

Torino 2006

  • Conclusion: Gute Winterspiele gab es bisher eigentlich nur in Form von Amped & Co auf der Xbox. Auch Torino 2006 hätte sicherlich noch eine Menge Potenzial für eine höhere Wertung gehabt, und mach auch im Vergleich zum vier Jahre alten ESPN International Wintersports von Konami eine weitaus bessere Figur.

  • Conclusion: Plusieurs jeux sont sortis cet hiver, ayant pour optique de nous présenter le ski par le prisme de la simulation. Take Two et sa licence Torino 06 ne parviennent pas à hisser le gameplay au niveau de la réalisation graphique. Si vous y ajoutez des commentaires honteux et une durée de vie ridicule, l’achat ne semble pas obligatoire.
  • Pros: Belle réalisation graphique, Bon rendu de la vitesse, Licence Officielle JO
  • Cons: Gameplay trop dirigiste, Manque de fun, Durée de vie trop courte
