The presentation on this game is really bad. The one plus I will give to this game is that it has a decent amount of events, but they are all really bad. Playing each event feels like playing an internet flash game that someone took 5 minutes to throw together. Some events are way to easy and some are way to hard. You'll find yourself breaking the world javelin record on your first try, then failing to even hit 3 targets on shotgun skeet. The graphics are terrible and the the character selection is ridiculous. You have two people per country that you are assigned. America's man looks like a more ghetto tiger woods, while our female looks like Kerry Washington (ben grimms girlfriend from the new fantastic 4 movies). Those are the only choices you get, and you don't even choose. I played maybe 3 fun events, and those were all so easy that I had broken the world record within my first few tries. I rented this game expecting to be entertained, but ended up returning it the day after I got it.
this game sucked! Not that I was goin to get it anyway, but there are no stars from the real games. No micheal phelps, no shawn jhonson, no usain bolt. What kind of wack sports game does that. you are basically playing with nobodys up agaisnt nobodys. PASS.
If mashing buttons is what you've been waiting for, then this is your title. The only unfortunate thing about it, is that there's little innovation here. While there may be some high next-gen graphics, it's not enough to waste your time on. I wouldn't even waste a rent on it unless you have brothers, or a family that's into it. It's true that you can play it online, but something gets lost here. It's just not as fun as playing it with your buds. If you are the only gamer in your house, pass on this one.
