One question: Where were the equestrian events?!
That's my favorite of the Summer Olympics. I never both the Winter Olympics, too boring. Anyway, my boyfriend and I both love horseracing, horse jumping events, dressage, rodeos, and endurance. But many people think only women and girls like all these, except rodeos. We were both hoping to compete one another in these events on the game, but they were not there.
I still have the old Sydney 2000 from the PS1 and that one has show jumping. I can't even imagine why a better system with such great capabilities would not have had these.
Well, let's hope the next Olympics game remembers.

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
