London 2012 Olympics Review: A Below Average Performance

 

The video game tie-in for the Summer Olympics is stuck in an infinite game design paradox.

A video game tie-in for the Summer Olympics Games in London feels about as guaranteed as the sense of nationalistic pride that sneaks into our favorite products around the same time. Everything from Coca-Cola to Happy Meals carry the familiar five-ring...

While it captures the grand feel of the Games, London 2012's dull campaign stops it from taking home the gold.

Some fun, well-thought-out minigames ; Encapsulates the excitement of the Games

No lasting appeal ; Dull solo campaign ; No practice mode

London 2012 doesn't scrimp on quantity when it comes to the main, controller-compatible games it offers, but some of the 30-odd games are worse than others. Trampoline, vault and diving are nothing more than quicktime events, and scoring can be...

Get caught up in the spirit and pageantry of the upcoming extravaganza while enjoying some friendly competition both on and offline.

Few of its events will hold up too well in the long term, but that’s not really what an Olympics game is all about. It’s a chance to get caught up in the spirit and pageantry of the occasion while enjoying some friendly competition both on and offline....

The London 2012 videogame won’t be on your playlist for very long, but if you’re a fan of the genre, I’d rate this game as one of the better games of its kind...

Pumps you up for the Olympic Games; A fun party game for a gaming night; Bright, cheerful graphics; I’m in the game :)

Won’t keep your interest for too long; No replay value in single-player mode; Generic athlete models

London 2012 will struggle to convince any of the Olympiad unconverted who have a picture of Sebastian Coe affixed to a dartboard in their kitchen.

Nice visuals

You'll need to really, really love the Olympics ; No good in solo ; Better alternatives out there

London 2012 is likely be another piece of licensed memorabilia for anyone who already has the dinnerware, tea towel, and bedspread, but it'll struggle to convince any of the Olympiad unconverted who have a picture of Sebastian Coe affixed to a...
