Not to bad for what it is

Anyone who Likes the olympics will enjoy this game, I love bought the game and have played it quite a bit. The controls are simple but annoying at times. Most of the time i feel like im going snap off my Analogue sticks and my buttons are gonna get worn out. however as a fan of these games from all the way back to the nes one its worth playing the graphics aren't to bad and the events for the most part are fun with some exceptions.

The online however is the worst online gaming experience ive ever had. It takes forever to complete the events as you have to sit there and click through each Cut, and if the other players don't click through em well have fun sitting there for 3+ hours depending on how many events and such.

Really Bad

I thought this game would be like over 35 games in one...but it was not. Though the graphics are amazing, you may as well be watching a movie.

All this game consists of is punching buttons as fast as you can, or moving the joystick in a certain direction continually for the entire event. At one point (bicycling) I was sitting there rotating the analog stick for 2 minutes as fast as I could...while about to experience a MAJOR cramp...and thought, "Well forget it!" The game went right back into the mail!

Don't even bother! I wish I had read these reviews before renting. You're not playing a game, you're cranking or pumping a machine.

What a waste...

Before you even try the 100m, 200m or any race that you need to use the L2 or R2 in order to get out of the blocks dont even try it. It will do nothing but frustrate you. basically if you dont time it just right you will lose and lose miserably every time. Oh and the 110m hurdles is just impossible. I don't know about you but this makes half of the game worthless to me. Some of the field events are fun. Long Jump, Triple Jump, Javelin, Discuss, Hammer, etc... are fun. Graphics are great, sounds is great too
