I rented this game because I was excited by the Winter Olympics, and wanted an Olympics game of some form. When I rented the game, I kind of thought that the controls wouldn't be very good, but I still got the game.
The graphics for this game are actually pretty good. The stadiums are actually constructed pretty well, but the gameplay and the controls are what really stood out.
The controls are HORRIBLE in this game. Basically, all you do is swing your wii remote up and down, up and down, up and down, for about half of the events. The rest of the events, such as archery, are pretty fun, but it's really easy to get great scores in all of them.
I must admit that it's pretty exciting to see your name on the leaderboard after the first round, but after that, the game drops badly. While in the "career mode", you don't even know what event is coming up next, and sometimes they could turn out to be events that you don't even like!
Multiplayer is the only fun thing about this game, not because the game is good, only because it's always fun to see your buddies acting silly in front of the TV. But after playing the multiplayer for about an hour, you'll be done, and want to return this game.
My Advice: Skip this game! There is nothing fun about it, and is basically just shaking the Wii remote around.
