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.

When i first heard of this game i emediately wanted it because i do enjoy the marrio olympics, i just wanted a more realistic way to play with my friends. The game has a fun 4 player game, but the games r just so hard. there are about 4 games u will get gold in besides tht good luck. games like skeet shooting, gymnastics, and certain swimming events r nxt to impossible, there is no way u will beat the competidors. Also the graphics suck, there is no real feel of a croud, there is a pact house and u dont hear anything. i dont kno if its even possible to brake the world records on some events, and te game does a miserable job of showing directions. The game has an "olympic games" mode whic pretty much is u qualifying 4 events and if u screw up on like 2 events ur out of the whole olympics, and the game goes threw every single event!!! impossible!!!. also u can "create" a team which is aboslutely pointless u do absolutely nothing to the players i really do not even kno why its in the game u dont change theym at all, only good with ur buds, rent 1rst
Pros: Fun with friends, thts it
Cons: no crowd sound, horrible game feature/modes, too hard, and the game does a terrible job of explaining the game controls
This game is ok, it is great when you can get it going but the problem is getting it going. Like another used, it is virutally impossible to just the blocks and then fun. It is very frustrating. I gave this game a 5 because after a while it gets boring. I would not rent it again...
