London 2012 Olympics
This game is for gamers who like the Olympics.
If you are a gamer who loves? likes the sports of the Olympic Games, then this game is for you. It has the best gameplay, the best graphics,the greatest sound if you have a TurtleBeach Headset, and the lasting appeal to game 24/ 7 all day long.
London 2012 the game is a very fun game and there are easy controls for new kids that just got an Xbox360 or PS3. The thing is if you REALLY like water polo football (soccer) Rugby field hockey tennis and team swimming you will hate it because the only team sport there is is Beach volley ball but your only 1 person. I dont get it I thought the Olympics are supposed to have all the game but it turns out that they really have half the. I personally like it but I dont like that there are no team sports.
Ok, so I purchased this game a few days ago around 4 in the afternoon. By the time I went to bed that night I had already played through the Olympics twice, winning in the medal tally both times. The game is neither long enough or difficult enough. Even on the "Hard" difficulty it is easy to dominate. You also have to unlock the hard difficulty by playing through the Olympics on medium. I am glad I played this game, as it was a blast for one night. I just wish I had rented. Playing with friends is alright, the downside being that they have to learn each individual event beforehand and still will have issues the first few times through. The controls and graphics are absolutely wonderful, I do have to say. Honest opinion: Rent. Or wait until the price goes down a little bit. Thanks :).
Outstanding Game Of Multiple Competitions!!!
This game is really great as far as having friends over and have a good competitions. I just wished that you could create your own athlete. Graphics are really good in High Definition!! While using the Xbox Kinect it makes the game a little more interesting and a little more challenging! I just purchased this game today and have already played it 3 hours straight! I had bought the very last copy at my local Gamestop because apparently they didn't have anymore nor Walmart! Really had fun and look forward to playing this game alot more with my family and friends!! Thanks Sega!!!!!
Great game for it's type
I own this game for PS3, but the 360 game should be identical.
If you like to compete against friends in games like wii sports, or Guitar Hero, then you will definitely enjoy this game too.
The game offers many different games to play. Most of the games are easy to learn, so even beginners can play. The game play is smooth, and the graphics are pretty crisp. They also did a pretty good job with the announcers and crowd noise which is good if you play with surround sound.
This game is definitely worth buying if you like mini-game type games.
Things That Need To Be Added
I Feel As Though The Next Game Should Like Like All The Relays That Take Place In The Olympics. And I Also Think People Should Have The Chance To Place As Star Athletes also You Guys Should Have Better Uniforms And So Forth as A Sprinter Myself I Want To Play With Athletes Such As Usain Bolt Or Justin Gatlin And Even Tyson Gay So For The 2016 Olympics Can The Game Makers Make it More Fun To Play.
I think the last game took a big step in the graphics and the events. Putting the 1500 and the 800 was big for me because thats what i ran in college. Now if they would put the 4x400 on there ill be really happy.
Eh not impressed so far
Ok I'm sure I'm not the only one that thinks that almost all olympic games so far have sucked. Maybe with the advent of Kinect it'll be better. But so far I'm not seeing anything thats blown me away. I just hope it doesn't suck as bad as the previous two have
