  1. Too bad for the German market that biathlon is not in the game, but in exchange you relive exciting disciplines like ski jumping or skeleton. Paired with good graphics and a nice rock music soundtrack you get one of the better Olympics-games of the past years. The downsides: a cheating AI and annoying, repetitive disciplines like ice skating.
  2. Vancouver 2010 is a decent sports game which lacks some of the Olympic disciplines.
  3. Vancouver 2010 isn't a bad game, just very limited by its subject matter. [May 2010, p.90]
  4. Sega brings us Vancouver 2010: The Official Videogame of the Olympic Winter Games with nice graphics and cool innovations in the gameplay. But the game does not feel like a real Olympic experience, there is no competitive spirit. Only for winter sports fans.
  5. Despite decent graphics and some funny game modes, Vancouver 2010 suffers from the complete lack of a career mode, which makes it feel like a mere succession of events, without any progression to be had. Fans of this kind of production will find some good gameplay elements, while players used to bigger and better game dedicated to the single sports should stick to those.
  6. Vancouver 2010 offers fourteen sports, thirty challenges and an poor online multiplayer: too little to compete even with SEGA's previous Olympic effort, Beijing 2008. The game delivers very good graphics and sound, but lacks of a career mode.
  7. A first-person mode adds some intensity, but Vancouver 2010's not going to offer more than a few hours' fun. [July 2010, p.79
  8. Vancouver 2010 is not a horrible game by any means, it's just the sum of the parts add together to present a lessen than desirable package.
  9. This selection of winter sports comes in an unimpressive simulation where only 4p multiplayer bring some juice. Better to sit and watch the real Olympics on your TV. [Feb 2010]
  10. Bottom-line: This is a game for completionists, leaderboard junkies, and glory hounds, though it should be noted that there are much simpler ways to proclaim one's video game superiority.
  11. This game shows what most athletes have to endure during the Olympic Games: losing and nervous breakdowns. There are 14 disciplines, each of which is extremely hard to master, mainly because of the bad controls, leaving you to guess what caused the problem. It looks and sounds good, but that’s it.
  12. Vancouver 2010 has the same problems as most other Olympic Games. There isn’t enough variation, the gameplay elements are boring and there isn’t a big overall competition.
