Londen 2012 is a olympics sport game. The game is really fun, you can do all kinds of sports. The graphics of this game are amazing! The sound also is really great! The solo part is done well, but the co-op part is alot more fun. You can get 10 more hours out of it just by playing co-op. The minigames are great, but some are really hard. Worth full price! I recommend buying it with another friend.

my friends and i are diehard competitive against each other at anything. where we find our best level playing field in is track and field games. we've been gaming at all track games from NES to London 2012. London ranks up there pretty high as a competitive game.

Just when you think you've peaked, you squeak out a new world record. Come find us ranked top 10 in most sports, it's too much fun

The best Olympics ever!

Has come the new official game of the Olympic Games and we've waited for four years since Beijing 2008 does not disappoint us, Charts worth 2012! certainly spectacular, and not the same boring gameplay in which only had to press two keys gradually to win, now every discipline has its distinct module. Has new disciplines such as beach volleyball, trampoline and balza among others, but also were removed Gymnastics others especially! Even so it is still very good! It is definitely the best game official Olympic game to date.

Better than the average Olympic videogames

Its true that this might be the best Olympic version ever but that doesn't stop your attention span from fading. Some of the mini-games are good but most aren't which result in spamming a single button, particularly the running & weightlifting events. A 360 controller is a must for this unless you like destroying your keyboard!

Visually, the presentation is amongst Virtua Tennis with even fabric clothing detail and realistic water effects. However unless you play this in multiplayer the fun is shortlived and the career mode requires constant replays if you want to witness all of the events or play the events separately in the additional menu option. Only recommended for the most passionate fans or some party fun

Mini-game Compilation

This game is nothing more than a series of mini-games put together, targeted at people who aim at playing it multiplayer. Dont expect much of it, for it is what it is, a game made to make money of the olympics, just as the rest of olympic event-based games. Fun for a while, just dont get high hopes.

Not that good a console port, but a pretty good game.

London 2012 is pretty good for an Olympics-brand game. Bear in mind whom it's aimed at and do not raise your expectations. If you are going to play this solo, you may have fun, but it is definitely aimed at (and better) co-op. The controls are made easy to pick up and play, although better with motion controls.

So the core game is split up in 31 Olympic disciplines, all in the form of minigames. Some are easy, some are insanely hard. For example, you can go through the jumping evens without even looking, but the javelin is a pain in the backside. But here is the thing - the game is fun. May not be the best of its genre, but it stands out when playing with friends.

I would recommend London 2012 to casual gamers and fanatics of the Olympics. Other people may consider it, but I would not recommend it to everyone.
