    C'm-on, it's really not as bad as the reviewers make it out to be! Sure it takes a few turns to get the controls figured out and there is a bit of button mashing on 1 or 2 events, but there is quite a bit of variety here and once you get the hang of it, it's great fun to get 4 of your mates together for a turn-based challenge!

    This could have been such a good game. The events are there, the controls are there, unfortunately the presentation is lacking in enthusiasm. Waiting for a medal presentation to load without receiving any fanfare, lack of excitement by commentators, and NO replays...but I guess you get what you pay for...a bargain price makes it an okay timewaster while we wait for bigger and better games This could have been such a good game.

    This is the total package. It's like getting 10 games for the price of one. Who could ask for anything more? I think this game should be owned by everyone, regardless of whether you even own a game system. It's like buying a crappy album for the cool cover. Except now with CD's the cover is so small it's not really worth it. But this game is.

    An essential failure in almost every way. At best it's a collection of rather boring events. At worst, putting the Olympic symbol on the box is a mockery of the games' excellent now bi-yearly presentation.
  2. It's not as if the Olympics, be it summer or winter, has had anything special to call its own when it comes to video game adaptations over the years, but Torino 2006 is especially egregious in that it pares down the number of included events to a fairly measly number, manages to make every single one of them completely uninteresting, and skimps entirely on the presentation.
  3. With no opening or closing ceremonies, or otherwise flashy presentation, the game is as boring to look at as it is to play.
