Vancouver 2010 - The Official Video Game of the Olympic Winter Games (PlayStation 3)

 

The limited selection of events leaves these Olympic Games out in the cold.

Vancouver 2010 Review

 

It seems that every time they try to do a game based on the Olympics, everything falls to pieces. The last attempt - centered on the 2008 Summer Games in Beijing - failed miserably due to ridiculous mechanics, clunky and sometimes impossible control,...

I liked the first-person view you could enable, but you're usually focusing on other things - like meters and bars - so it loses a bit of its appeal. Then there's the lack of immersion due to the bare-bones presentation; all you really do is select an...

Vancouver 2010 - the Official Video Game of the Olympic Winter Games Review for the PS3

 

Gotta shine up those medals for the next time 'round.

Tracks are true to form; Win a gold medal!; Easy to pick up and play

No replay saving; Very bare-bones play; Very bare-bones online play; Olympic games haven't really changed

Vancouver 2010 - the Official Video Game of the Olympic Winter Games

 

It's all downhill in this collection of utterly shoddy minigames

Doesn't look terrible ; Some fun old-school button mashing ; Slightly more enjoyable in multiplayer

Only 14 events ; Most events are dreadful ; Enormously frustrating difficulty spikes

Things are slightly more enjoyable in multiplayer, because at least you and your mates can be crap at everything together, but you’ll still struggle to reach the heady heights of ‘fun'. There is online multiplayer (not recommended unless you want to be...

With the Winter Olympics being in full effect, we take a closer look at Vancouver 2010 by SEGA. Does it deliver a gold medal performance? Or does it fa [...]

A cash-in through and through, but its only real detractor is its brevity and shallow nature.

Today marks the start of the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. Over the coming weeks, the world will turn their attention to the tony Canadian city to watch as superbly trained athletes compete for honor and glory. It's sure to be a terrific event, a...

Easy to pick up and play; visually, it does an adequate job of recreating the individual events

The lack of variety really hurts the overall product; the addition of some of the more under-appreciated events would have been welcome

There's something about video games based on the Olympics that feel disingenuous to me. When it comes to the Olympic Games we're talking about athletes that have devoted their entire lives to this one thing, honing their skills for this one moment. Yet...

There's very little to love in Vancouver 2010, Sega's half-assed attempt to make a must-own game out of the 2010 Winter Olympics. This dud features confusing controls, lackluster events and only a couple of hours of gameplay. At least the game looks...

Vancouver 2010 Review [PS3, Xbox 360, PC]

 

It's nearly time for the Winter Olympic Games and with that comes the officially licensed game, Vancouver 2010. Whilst using some of the key events from the Winter Olympics it comes off feeling as uneven as the snow the events take place on.

Fun to play with a group of friends, once they get to grips with the controls ; Customise your own events list in World Olympics and mulitplayer modes ; Online multiplayer works well, with little to no lag

Poor controls hamper gameplay ; Small selection of events means it won't take you long to see the whole game ; Basic animations and visual style makes Vancouver 2010 feel dated

Although Vancouver 2010 makes a good first impression it quickly boils down to a below average collection of mini games. Beyond dusting the game off occasionally to play with friends there is very little here to keep you coming back for more.

When I was young, I used to go over to my friend's house and we'd play Epyx Winter Games on his Apple II. I suppose it's for that nostalgic reason I've always held a soft spot in my heart for Olympics-based video games, even though they've been...

I can't help but wonder if Vancouver 2010 wouldn't have been better served as a Wii title. With the Balance Board, it seems like an ideal platform for sports like Alpine Skiing, Snowboarding, Ski Jumping and even the different Sled-related sports....

The Winter Olympics in Vancouver start in several days, and earlier this month Sega released their officially licensed video game on the Xbox 360 and PS3. I've spent several hours with Vancouver 2010 and while it's pretty fun, it lacks any real depth...

Overall, Vancouver 2010 is an okay game, but it's very shallow. It borders on just being a collection of mini-games in some regards, but it is more than that -- just not a lot more. Good for a weekend rental, but very hard to recommend, even at $50.
