2.0 out of 5 stars Great Graphics, Not Enough Events February 7, 2010
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
SEGA have done a great job with the graphics and gameplay with Vancouver 2010 on the PS3. Everything looks incredible in HD on the PS3. You can tell a lot of attention to detail has gone into the way it looks and feels/plays. The movement of the skiers down the slalom is very realistic, there's a good learning curve with the Parallel Snowboard Slalom which will keep you busy, and the sense of speed on the bobsleigh events is really well done. Unlike Beijing Olympics 2008, the mindless fast-tapping on controller buttons is kept to a minimum on Vancouver 2010. Online play is a lot of fun as this game seems to be very popular in Europe, so you'll get to play against some good (European) players.

That's the good. Now let's check out the bad...

The biggest disappointment with this game is the number of events that are included. The range of events is really quite poor. There is NO halfpipe snowboarding event for example meaning no opportunity to perform tricks or show off your snowboarding skills. Snowboarding is probably going to be one of the MOST WATCHED events, yet SEGA only decided to include the Snowboard Cross event and no HalfPipe. There's no figure skating event, no ice hockey content, no curling, no biathlon, and no cross-country skiing. Yes, I appreciate something like Ice Hockey is so complex that it would need a whole game/disc by itself, but not even some small presence such as a penalty shootout? While the game lists "14 events", most of these are very similar. The Bobsleigh, Luge and Skeleton are practically the same event (just a different vehicle/sled) and most of the skiing and snowboarding events are the same.

Vancouver 2010 is fun to play, especially online, but it quickly becomes monotonous playing the same events over and over.

2.0 out of 5 stars All Or Nothing February 6, 2010
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Surely with the current generation of video game consoles, game developers could include more of the Olympic events instead of just the ones revolved around downhill motion (skiing, snowboarding, bobsled, etc...) Where's the Curling, Hockey, Speed Skating, etc? I would have gladly traded off a bit of the extremely detailed graphics if it meant more events and ultimately a more complete game. If I remember correctly, even the 1998 Nagano Winter Olympics game for the Nintendo 64 had Curling and that was 12 years ago and two console generations ago.

1.0 out of 5 stars No Curling = NO SALE! July 1, 2012

Note to Sega or whoever makes a Winter Olympics game. Make a killer Curling event... and then worry about the other events.

1.0 out of 5 stars I'm glad I only rented it February 18, 2010
By Pensfan
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
They didn't have many events, the events they did have did not have did not have the right format. Snowboard cross for example was just a timed run, not a tournament style like the real Olympics. You have no idea how you're doing, there is no suspense as you see if your time is good enough.

In short I had a version of this game for the 1994 games and this one isn't improved by any extent 16 years later. Sega should be ashamed.

1.0 out of 5 stars SEGA should be ashamed of themselves March 22, 2010
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Believe it or not, I read the reviews on Amazon before I bought this game and yet I still bought it. With the SSX franchise apparently dead, I just wanted to play a winter sports game and thought this would suffice. Boy, was I wrong. The reviews here are spot-on. There is no redeeming value to this game whatsoever. You get absolutely no feeling that you are part of the Olympics other than a little flag that is next to your name. The events are not very good either. The skiing events and the snowboarding events use the same controls and they're terrible. The speed-skating is so hard to do that I played it once and never did it again. The whole game is awful. I have nothing positive to say about it. It feels like SEGA just rushed out a game in time for the Olympics to make a quick buck without putting much time or effort into it. My recommendation would be that you DO NOT BUY THIS GAME.

3.0 out of 5 stars Promising but disappointing February 3, 2010
By D@rkFX
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I initially gave this two stars based on the lack of track variety. While this is true for the "Olympic games" mode (there's only one track per event) the challenges mode is rewarding and trophies somewhat easy to get.
Graphics are also good but the sound track selection is dull with no variety in genres (rock only). On the bright side, music can be muted altogether which makes the game play more bearable (Olympic athletes don't listen to music while competing anyway).
The game can be played online, on a LAN and on PSN but at this time there are no games to be found. For what the game is offering I'd say it's worth $20 rather than $40+.

3.0 out of 5 stars Average Olympic game October 2, 2013
By Jerad
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
This Vancouver Olympic game isn't all that it says it is. There aren't really a whole lot of games to play on it and they really aren't that great, but if you are looking for a simple Olympic game with a little bit of fun this is the way to go!
