    Playing single-player gets old fast, though. I had to call IGN Overlord Peer Schneider over for a round of curling to break up the single-player monotony.
  2. Unfortunately, none of the events are done particularly well.
  3. The leader in sports [ESPN] and the company behind "Metal Gear Solid" should just go their separate ways. [Mar 2002, p.85]

    It's not a game style that many can master; in fact it's downright frustrating and not always satisfying. Tapping two buttons like a madman will never feel like Skating, and neither will the twitch puzzle used for Figure Skating performance. But there isn't a better way.

    One of those "universally fun" titles that gaming fans of all genres can take to instantly.
  6. The whole point of Olympic-style games is for multiplayer fun and it is absolutely unforgivable that this game only supports two-players. [Mar 2002, p.78]
  7. The kind of lazy port that Xbox owners need to shout ‘No!’ at very, very loudly, if only to minimise the danger of being overrun by such fodder in the future.
  8. I played this game for several days and noticed that I was forcing myself to play it just so I could do the review. This is not a good sign for any game.
  9. Perfect release timing and the least complicated control set possible. They've slightly erred on both this time out.
  10. The variety in gameplay is great, something for virtually everybody.

You'd think they could have just taken a video tape and moved it faster and slower given the limited control in some events. Full Review »
