1. The game has a nice assortment of events. As with many of these types of games, much of the game favors track & field events and swimming. But there's also a nice variety of other events that keep things interesting, including diving, gymnastics, weightlifting, beach volleyball, cycling and even table tennis
2. HERE'S WHAT'S GOOD - The game does not favor ridiculous button mashing. Thank goodness for that. Many previous games make the mistake of using the old-school Konami Track & Field mechanics of ridiculous mashing with a bit of timing & finesse thrown in. Here is it all about timing and rhythm. Sure there are cases where you need to jam on the buttons, but it is only in short bursts. Most of the time, it's all about keeping your rhythm, finding the right pace and also getting specific timing events down. That's what makes this game great. It caters to both the hardcore gamers who want to get the perfect timing down to break world records (that is shared on global leader boards if you play on Xbox live), and also to the newbies who just want to have fun and pick up & play.
3. Controls are VERY solid. For each specific event, the controls make sense. They are intuitive and logical. For example, freestyle swimming events require rhythmic motion of the L & R sticks (alternating) where as butterfly swimming events use synchronized L & R stick motions. Skeet shooting uses the L stick to aim and R trigger to fire.Read more ›
- A wide variety of events: track and field, shooting, archery, rowing, volleyball, cycling, diving, gymnastics
- Great difficulty scaling: You can dominate Easy right away, Medium takes practice, and Hard is, well, hard
- The button presses and stick movement seem to well timed. I was worried about using the sticks in swimming to move each arm independently, but it's actually a great way to control the swimmer and is very gratifying when you get the timing right
- The graphics aren't groundbreaking, but they are good
Not so good:
- Because the same A button performs multiple actions, volleyball can be a bit frustrating. Table tennis might suffer from a similar problem, but I haven't played enough of that event to be sure.
- The announcers very quickly get annoying. Fortunately, you can mute them.
- Some events are just a bit too easy. I shouldn't have been able to break a world record in javelin my second time playing it. On the other hand, some events are quite hard and require a bit more practice to even be competitive
The game did lock up once while loading an event in the middle of a 20-event Olymic games run. When I reloaded the save, it marked me as not qualifying for that event. It only happened once, but it was infuriating. If it happens again I will update my score accordingly.
Assuming the lockup mentioned above was indeed a one-time fluke, I have no problem recommending this game.
