I have seen many bad reviews about this game but personally I love it. I understand where some of you are coming from but you didn't give it enough time so that you could get good at some of the controls. So give the game a chance and you'll love it.
I haven't played online yet but overall it's a pretty good game.
It's really addictive trying to get world records, personal bests, and top scores for the achievments.
The only downside to this game imo is having sore forearms and hands from long sessions of extreme button pressing.
A lot of events, a very good looking menu system. The tutorials could be up on the screen longer as they go away way too quick to understand what they're explaining the first time through usually, but they're still very informative.
The graphics are decent but definitely not top-notch mind blowing stuff. Most of the scenery reminds me of watching everyday of the olympics at home in HD.
One funny thing is how the olympic torch is inside the bird's nest in the game whereas in real life it was sticking out of the inner rim of the ceiling of the stadium. This of course was due to the game being made and finished before the bird's nest was so go figure.
