wot no pole vault ?
on 27 August 2013
I bought this today and I reckon playing as 2-4 players will be more fun than just on your own
There are some really good events like the swimming and the track events ....
I managed to get a bronze on the men's kierin (cycling) in medium level and about six 4th places after one day.
I'm gonna need practice in the volleyball ,table tennis,canoeing and gymnastics as I'm hopeless at them.
All in all its a fairly decent game but no pole vaulting which is a shock actually .....
Once you've got the rhythm of the buttons in tuturial lesson before each event it should come easier
On easy level I managed 8 gold medals and a silver and two Olympic records
So id say start on easy first just to get used to the controls then work your way up
I'm still loving the archery event
Not played a track and field game for about 8 -10 years ......last one I played had fencing on and only had about 23 events I think including horse jumping too ......about 6 of us had fun playing that on ps2.
Obviously you can't have every event on here as some would take hours to complete but 50 would have been nice with added ones like ...judo,fencing,pole vault,show jumping and the bike race that goes round a tiny course shaped like a letter M that lasts about 30 seconds those ones would be great too ........
Now I gotta get back and practice some more
Buy this and play with your mates ......its a pretty decent game well worth the 14.99 I payed for it
