4.0 out of 5 stars Funny game, just some minor flaws 31 Oct 2012
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My wife and I have played London 2012 for a few days and, having gone through all events, we can say that it's a really nice Olympics game. We liked the variety of available sports (we haven't played Beijing or Athens to compare), and having things like shooting, keirin cycling, weightlifting, kayak and trampoline was a very nice thing. We also appreciated a lot the effort put in more "complex" sports like beach volleyball and table tennis.

We grew up used to the button-mashing system and were happy to see that London 2012 dropped it almost entirely (only weightlifting requires the "classic" button-mashing). In the rest of the sports, most of the instructions are designed to replicate the body movements of the athlete. As a previous reviewer said, some sports are easy to learn and hard to master. Some other ones are easier (I broke the high jump world record in my first attempt playing it), but to me it looks like one may never reach the point of being able to repeat the perfect movement every time.

Athletes names and faces aren't the real ones, but you can fix it through customization. It will take a lot of your time, but if you want to run against Bolt, swim against Phelps and play volleyball against May and Walsh, you can do so. We are customizing our game slowly.

We also appreciate the chance of competing in sports where everyone plays together, and not only the "only one player per turn" system seen in most Winter sports. And we understand that it limits the number of players to 4, since it works with a split screen and splitting it in 6 or 8 parts would create a very small image.

In the end, London 2012 seems to be a nice game to call your friends and play at home (even better if you have 4 controllers to allow more competition).

4.0 out of 5 stars good fun 29 Nov 2014
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3| Edition:Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Bought this so that the whole family can play together. My other half loved it but my six year old got frustrated as she couldn't get it right the first time so didn't want to play anymore. I think it will just take a few goes before she gets the hang of it. It is a good buy for the price definitely worth a go

4.0 out of 5 stars Good fun 3 Aug 2012
By ChrisR
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Most of the events are easy to learn, but difficult to master. I find myself playing this game a lot more than I did with Beijing 2008, which in my opinion was more difficult. I think the graphics were better in Beijing, but my biggest disappointment is the realism (or lack of) with the scoring system. Only 36 nations compete, and it's always roughly the same 8 nations competing in each final. With only 2 events allowed per day, you soon find 2 nations pulling way ahead of the pack, while the remaining 34 nations finish the Games with only 2 or 3 medals, it takes away a lot of the sense of competition. There should be an option to select the number of events played each day, up to 10 would make the medal table look a bit more realistic.

On the positive side, there's a good selection of events and each one feels very different which gives the overall game more longevity. There isn't very much 'button-bashing' which I used to hate in these type of games. This version is more about timing your button presses rather than bashing away until you break the controller. It's a good game and I would recommend it to anyone. Maybe the price will drop after the real Games have ended.

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
London 2012 is undoubtedly the best Olympic game to emerge as yet, but there are some issues that prevent it being an astounding game in its own right.

Good things: Graphics are brilliant, the water looks very realistic and the athletes look great. Game play is generally very good. Playing with friends as always with these games is addictive. Nice touches like customising athletes and changing names.

Bad things: Having now experienced the real Olympics in London, the game could have gone further to emerge us in the atmosphere. Not enough countries are playable. Game-play can be frustrating for example, the 100m sprint does not simply allow you to bash the X button, punishing you if you press it too quickly, ITS A SPRINT!!! There are so many events missing that could have made this game, simple track events that were great on Beijing are gone, and I loved the gymnastic events on the previous game but they sadly too are missing.

Overall, a good game that has tantalisingly nice stuff, but ultimately let down by lack of choice.

Fantastic game, so much fun and excellent quality. I really like that same games can be played via both the move control and normal controlled. Great fun to play when friends are round.

5.0 out of 5 stars London 2012 (PS3) 26 Oct 2013
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3| Edition:Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
Not having a game with the different sports attached to it I went for this. I was not disappointed. Some of the games are hard, but none of them are boring, especially the hardest to tackle the Kayak racing. Easiest choice to recommend that I have made this year!!
