I greatly enjoyed the Wii version, but this was just pure epicness! Despite the several downsides, this was by far my favorite games in the "Olympics" series!
There are two VERY bad parts to this game.
1.) This game, unlike all the others, allows only certain characters to play certain events (not being able to choose my favorite characters for certain missions is very difficult).
2.) There are absolutely no Dream Events.
That's right. Absolutely NO Dream Events!
The reason for this is probably because there are so many Olympic events. In fact if you ask me, there are TOO many Olympic events.
Good news: There is a difficulty adjuster for those who are new or experienced.
More good news: Controls for most of the events are extremely easy.
Bad news: In some events, the stylus doesn't register your movements, so it may take a few tries.
The story mode about this is a fair length and will take about 2-5 hours to complete depending on your game experience and whether or not you want to beat every single challenge. Warning: the further through story mode you get, the harder the challenges become.
Overall, this game is a lot better than the other versions. This is no ordinary game: this is a must for those who like gaming. One last warning: this game is a lot easier when sitting down or not moving. It's very difficult when in a car or some moving thing.
