London Olympic 2012 Trailer

Going for gold (without Henry Kelly)

It’s been a fair few years since I looked at a multi event sports game. In fact, the last one I played was on my Amiga, so I have been pleasantly surprised by London 2012 – The Official Video Game of the Olympic Games.

Offering over 45 events, some of which will be playable using Move and Kinect, reactive commentary and “TV style presentation”, the game looks much better than your average licensed game.

    I’m a huge sucker for these games. Beijing ’08 and Vancouver ’10 were brilliant in my opinion. Just good all round fun with a pal. Plus I have two sixaxis controllers that are older so have no problems with button mashing them to the max.

    I got a serious sporting injury playing one of these games once – horrendous thumb blisters from the button rubbing method.

    Is it just me or does the animation look pretty stiff and the graphics look a bit blocky, almost PS2-esque. Just an observation, I will enjoy playing this in October when I find it available on eBay for £5 ;-)

      To be fair, the youtube preview picture isn’t exactly great for showing off the game.
