4.0 out of 5 stars excellent family kinect fun 7 Nov 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is the sort of game that excels on the Kinect, it's really good for playing multi player games with friends and family as it's quite easy to pick up the events. It reminds me a little bit of when Wii sports first came out.

If you don't have Kinect then I would only give this game 2 or 3 stars as playing the games with a controller becomes boring quite quickly and there isn't much to the game other than maybe trying to get world records.

In general it is a good game with great graphics but it should have more events compatible with Kinect sensor. Around 70% of the events are controlled by the joystick only.

There here, the OLYMPICS are finally here and wow are they AMAZING. Even better is we can now interactively participate in almost all of the FUN events either ONLINE with your friends or OFFLINE. There are online leaderboards so you can compare your records, performances and stats with your friends. You can also see who has won the most medals. If you have 4 controllers, offline mode allows 4 players while A MASSIVE 8 players online.

There are 30 EVENTS to choose from by far the most any Olympic or Track and Field game has ever offered. Each event has it's own controls, own required skill and you have to use the full amount of brain power to be master every single event, although being the best at 1 event will mean you can gloat to your friend as you sit top of the leaderboards.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lot of fun - especially online 16 Aug 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
FUN is the word I'd use to sum this game up. NO game is perfect and neither is this, but it's good all round fun and for that it deserves a good overall rating.

I hate just button mashing for sporty stuff but the controls and variations in this are nicely done - very simple to pick up and play right away - but not always so easy to master even with practise. But sure enough, if you do practise, you learn more and more about the marginal things you can do to excel at the harder events and eventually break a world record - and being able to break a world record is something you'll need to aim towards if you plan on playing the game online against other people and actually want to get a medal. Playing against people online is where it's at, and although you do encounter ninjas who are just amazing at every event, if you do practise and put in the effort and learn the events you can certainly be in with a chance of a medal if you do good in the moment. The National Pride online leaderboard is pretty cool as then the medals you earn for whoever you're representing online all count towards that, so getting a medal means more.

With a little more depth and scope, and with better online stats to record and remember the highlights of what you've done, this game could have been absolutely awesome and had a lot more longevity. But overall it is still a very cool game - good looking, fun to play, and challenging if you plan on winning gold online.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good game 23 Oct 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is as good as I will to be. I like playing it with my dad and mostly beating him at mostly all the sports! The different challenges are fun to do and see if you can get all the stars. The actual games are easy to play; the controls are simple etc. I can't really comment of the graffics of the game because my TV is really bad (the bit sticking out the back is MASSIVE) but in my opinion the graffics must be good if they look ok on my TV. So overall a game better played together.

3.0 out of 5 stars Weak on the kinect games 12 Aug 2012
By TopCat
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought the XBox 360 primarily for Kinect games to try and get a bit more exercise, so I'm always on the lookout for new Kinect games. When I saw this, swept away with Olympic fever, I had high hopes for a wide range of events.

However I got it home and had a look and there are a very limited number of events with Kinect functionality. Straight away that was a bit of a disappointment. When I started playing the beach volleyball was fun, the kayak slalom was over very quickly and the running was a bit repetitive - just pump your arms fast. I've seen running on previous Wii games in the same vein and thought we might have moved beyond that by now. The archery might keep me amused for a little longer being a bit of a challenge of skill and I haven't given all the Kinect events a go so I might find one I love but I'm not holding high hopes.

The biggest fault for me is that to open any new stages up you have to either play the controller games (which I'm not really interested in) or play the party challenges with friends, but I can't imagine any of my mates coming round to play this. This means nothing to progress onto and leaves it looking a bit basic.

Another Kinect issue is that it seems to need a larger playing area than other games I own. I was almost out of the lounge and still being told to move further back, which is why I assume at times it was having problems identifying the movements I was making and getting my athlete to do as it was meant to.

There are a few other minor issues that made me feel very much like the Kinect element was just bolted on to the end without too much thought to widen the audience. As far as Kinect games go this was a fail for me. The only positive was seeing the venues and signages that have been so prominent in the Games which I have really been enjoying, although the graphics aren't amazing.

I couldn't say this was better than okay.
