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: 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.
