  1. Torino 2006 for the Xbox also suffers from the same stale one button simplicity of the PS2 version.
  2. Torino 2006 is going to get added to the long list of Olympic titles that have plagued the gaming community for the past six years. It's like a recurring virus that surfaces every two years and you hope that this time they have found the cure.
  3. Torino's 2006's lack of ambition and polish keeps it in the corner to be quietly steamrolled by college hoops and MLB spring training. [Mar 2006, p.78]
  4. As for Torino 2006, I would look in the bargain bin for "International Winter Sports 2002" instead.
  5. The appeal of button-bashing power bar games wore off when we put "International Track & Field" to rest years ago. Torino 2006 looks nice but we can't see you lasting long before slamming the pad down at the difficulty of the speed skating or nodding off from the monotony of the cross-country hobble. [Official UK Xbox Magazine]
  6. Button-mashing is almost nonexistent. That's a big change from "Athens 2004," the last Olympics game I played, which required you to hit buttons frantically to make your athlete move.

    Despite all the bad reviews, I think it is a great game that needs a little improvement. The olympic games come every four years and last 16 Despite all the bad reviews, I think it is a great game that needs a little improvement. The olympic games come every four years and last 16 days. As soon as you get hooked into the Olympics, they end. This allows you have some Olympics in the home while waiting to see them again. Full Review »
