    The game play is amazingly bad. DO NOT BUY THIS GAME. Its impossible to play without a gamepad. If you do buy this game, get a hard copy and expect to trade it back in shortly after. Plus, the graphics are very poor, no better than The Olympics game of 2004. MAJOR WARNINGS. NOT GOOD, not sure what its like for PS3/XBOX but dear god, not on PC.

    They don't even try to hide PC ports anymore. No rebindable controls, with action buttons being the A, B, X, and Y keys, left, right, up, down being the arrow keys, and start/pause being F1. Whoever was responsible for making the PC port of this game quite literally took the Xbox 360 controller, looked at the names of the buttons, and without any further thought, matched each button with its respective key on the keyboard.

    If you're having trouble visualizing the stupidity of this, please look up NerdCubed's attempt at playing this game. The results are not pretty.

    Not good for PC. Would get it on XBOX seen as all the controls are still in the XBOX controls on the game and this game is certinally made for use on XBOX.

    The Keyboard controller is sucks.....and also the game locked the joystick for another type. Don't buy it until there's an update from the developer!

    Whoa... this is real garbage... Let us be clear: - it have no bugs - it have a pretty decent graphic - it have some interesting event... ... and... - it have too few events! Where are the other events? - we are in 2012/2013! Why create a "smash-button" game? Also, why creating the official game of an Olympic Game like this!? - pc controls are simply awful! - it cost almost 20 euro/dollars upon its release!!!

    Crap... no other words...

    Traditionally, the problem with these games is that the developers churn them out mechanically, in short development cycles, without attention to detail. London 2012 is no exception. Despite its flaws however, some games are actually fun and that grants the game high replayability values. [August 2012]

    Nicely done sport simulation scores with its true Olympics atmosphere and thanks to its online mode game will last long. [Issue#220]

    Simplifications in London 2012 are painful (especially if you saw other similar games) and playing it alone is pretty much pointless. [September 2012, p.74]
