Summary: I absolutely love this game. From the downhill ski jumping, to bobsledding & luge its a great challenging game. The controls are easy to use and master after a little practice. The graphics are incredible even on Xbox 360, it matches up with current games. Alpine skiing event is the hardest to beat, but can be done with patience and good toggle skills. Overall, a great game that will hold you over until the 2010 Winter Olympics.
Summary: before i start, i have to say that before i bought this game my favorite olympic game was for sega genesis. All of the games before this one were terrible. all it was was button mashing in a couple of bad events with bad graphics. This game has very realistic graphics and courses that are actually kind of accurate to the real events. In this game you can play with up to 4 other players (why not more?) while taking turns.
Summary: If you like olympic sports this game is going to be fun. The graphics are excellent. Every event has it's own mechanics to dominate which makes it interesting...of course it is not a long game, to be played for hours, I mean just look to the olympics competitions: people go one or two times down a hill and that's about it! the competition is over!. That's what you're going to find in this game. They are immitating the reality.
Summary: This is a pretty game. This is a game with lots of events. Yeah! I have found the positive in this game. Ok, the real deal. THis game is pretty fu, but not really fun. You will not want to play it again and again. However, if you are using it to show your kids the gist of the olypics, or want the family to get into the spirit of the olympics,then jump in and enjoy yourself. Is it worth the price? No.
Summary: This game is abysmal! I only wished I had read the first review before purchasing. I had hoped to rekindle days of enjoyment in my early teens playing Track and Field or Daley Thompsons Decathlon on my ZX Spectrum; but even they were more advanced and enjoyable than this; at least you got the cance to bash your keyboard to death!
Summary: What on earth have these x-box game programmers been smoking lately? This game is absolulety mind numbinlgy BORING!!!! I had an identical winter olympic games for the Commodore 64, 20 years ago! If all you want to do is hit the 'A' button,then occasionally the 'B' button, then maybe you get to STEER the charachter if you're lucky, then this game is for you, otherwise MOVE AWAY FROM THIS TITLE AND SAVE YOUR MONEY, PLEASE!!!!
Summary: Bought this game being a big fan of the winter olympics, and it live upto expectations, the events are all challenging, but not that hard that you cant win occasionally, the skiing is great and is easy to get to grips with, speed skating take alot of practice to master, bobsleigh and luge are great, the cross country skiing and biathalon events are definately challenging, Ski jumping... Excellent.
