Really Bad

Serves me right for not taking others advice

The controls are ridiculous, I long for the days of the lonely A and B. The game would be fun if not for the controls. Oh well maybe they'll have a better game to coincide with the 2012 Olympics.

the only good thing this game has going for it is the wide selection of events ( 38). bad thing is maybe half are fun to play , the others are just boring, tabble tennis and judo for example.
presentation plain sucks, why couldn`t they have just let you play olympic mode from start to finish,oh no you have to qualify for so many finals per day , if you don`t you have to keep replaying that day until you do.which just takes the fun out of playing the game.
graphics are ok depending on the event, swimming events look pretty good, others can look kinda bland.
overall , rent only , even then you`ll be bored after a few days.just nothing here to make you wanna keep playing.

Game is absolutely boring
Each event uses the same controls, my great grandma can play
Controls are repetitive meaning your constantly pressing the same buttons
You’ll end up getting blisters after playing only 5 minutes
It’s dreaded pain just typing this review, this game is a bloody massacre
I feel like the child from the “knowing”
Do me a favor and do not rent
Unless you want to be bored to death
Simulation is horrible
Come on where’s Michael
You can’t choose from any characters
Graphics look like a game from the wii
No offense wii gamers
