London 2012 - The Official Video Game

If anyone was a fan of International Track and Field back on the PS1 like myself, their ears will perk up every time they hear the mention of an athletics or olympics game!

Memories of button bashing taken to new levels while trying to set insane world records, and going through control pads like no tomorrow!

I'm hoping this will be a button basher, but with a bit more of the fun aspect that was lacking slightly from the Beijing game 4 years ago.

I remember "Beijing Olympics" and what a hazard that was to controllers everywhere.

 

Some of the stuff was great though, whereas others (like Tae-Kwon-Do) was just a perpetual puzzle.

 

Hope this offering is alright because "Bejing" gave us some really great multiplayer fun.

 

Az

athens 2004 messed up the centre of my hand but i cant for the love of god remember which event it was

A game that will drop to less then half price by the time the actual games are over

-

Not sure such a game is worth breaking a pad over

Yeah button bashing fun

count me in

The price of entertainment is worth it Cokney, if it is a change from all of the serious games that are released these days!

Fractured wrist and broke 2 pads due to button bashing on previous games like this.........I wont miss this at all !!
