This game would not have received such a high rating from me if it weren't the first Olympics game that was actually worth trying (why are Olympics games historically so terrible?). A lot of the events became tedious after a while, but the party play area of the game was fun with friends, and it was generally fun to go through at least a couple olympic campaigns. Probably not worth becomming a permanant fixture in your game catelog, but more than worth a rental.

Honestly, I had some fun with this game. However, my only drawback I found while playing this game. It wasn't your typical Olympic style game. It seems to lack something that I just can't pinpoint exactly. The only exciting thing was the Volleyball, trapeze, table tennis and swimming. The 100m and 400m track wasn't like the last Olympic game. I personally would've liked if the game could've kept the controls that is similar to the latter games. Overall I would give this game a 6.5/10. I wish if there were a volleyball game developed or a table tennis game that could be similar to the games in this title...Just hope EA Sports see this comment!!!!
The gameplay on this was way too basic. Most of the events were controlled by one button or very simple analog combination. Novice might find it more appealing. I did not play it with the motion controllers, maybe that would have helped raise the fun factor a little but I just didnt care after I played every event, and there are quite a lots of them. Swimming, Track, Volleyball, weightlifting, shooting, gymnastics, ect. I thougt the Graphics were good. However, DONT WASTE YOUR TIME ON THIS GAME!
