    This is a pretty nice game if you're a sports and Olympics fan. The gameplay is good, the atmosphere makes you feel like you're really competing for your country and since it's Olympics period you'll might want to try it out just to emulate the real athletes.

The gameplay is good, the atmosphere makes you feel like you're really competing for your country and since it's Olympics period you'll might want to try it out just to emulate the real athletes. The replay value is high enough because of the good number of disciplines and challenge it offers. The controls are easy to figure out thanks to the tutorials and after you try a discipline a few times you'll eventually get good at it. It works only with a xbox360 controller (or Keyboard and Mouse but i wouldn't recommend that) so either you buy one or you get an emulation software that allows you to use your gamepad as an xbox360 controller. The graphics are average, I could compare it to the latest pes maybe although the physics and movements are not so accurate and fluid. To sum it up it's a good timing-and-button-smash type of game with a good variety of challenges. The price is a little high though. Expand

    Although it is not a great game, but the developers would otherwise have to do it? The campaign does not impress and you will see that it is better to play in a new fifa. But ... I think developers really tried. How to play sports in which you can see buildings and tp. graphics look good. Various competitions were done as well. Added to this is the split-screen, even for 4 So why not haveAlthough it is not a great game, but the developers would otherwise have to do it?

    I like the game of the Olympic Games but this failed me. All players have the same stats and most disciplines are simply pressing a button (such as running). Yet this is not the worst. The worst aspect of the game is to control the pc. The creators of control as they assigned to the pad for Xbox360 or A on the pad then A on the keyboard, and so on (you can not change it).

    This game is soo bad and still almost gets to achieve the passing grade. Why is it bad? Because it's a smash-the-buttons game from the '00s that fails to recreate the complexity of any of the available sports. Why does it almost gets to achieve the passing grade then?

    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.

    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.

    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]
