The controls were horrible and sometimes confusing over what you were supposed to be doing in order to compete. I tried at least one event in all of the single competitions. The only thing I won was the breast stroke and got a new WR. Diving was a disaster as I couldn't figure out what to do and shot put was the same. It was a lot of effort on my part working up a sweat only to come in dead last all the time. I gave up on it within 30 minutes of playing it and went onto another game. It wasn't very fun at all, too confusing over what to do and kept getting beat by the AI guys. Don't bother renting this game. It's not even worth trying it.

This game is horrible. The directions are too complicated to perform good on any of the activities. Track and swiming is the only activities that are okay, but what your really doing is moving your arms really fast. Do not buy this game, if you do you will ant your money back.

This game lacks the simple controls that it should have to be a good game. The controls that the game tells you to do never work and you have to move the wii controllers on your own to guess how to make the motions work. My favorite events are the 100m, 200m, 400m, and 4x100m relay. They are fast moving controls just like running that actually require endurance from start to finish. All other events except for long jumping, triple jumping, pole vaulting, and high jumping are very difficult to do and be good at it. Buy this game if you want an Olympic game, but if you want quality, go with Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games. It is a MUCH better pick.
