Are you sure this isn't the Wii version?

Wii Version? Washy textures, no bump mapping... looks like the ps2 version

This was reviewed by the UK based Playr TV show over the weekend (replacement of Gamer TV on Bravo). They really liked it and gave it 8/10. Looks like they have implemented some nice rhythm action bits for some disciplines too.

the dreamcast version of Sydney 200 looks better than this. no really it probably does.

Something looks wrong there. It does look like someone's blown up a low-res pic. Usually when it's just low-res textures but a native screenie the text and HUD still look very sharp, but they just don't here.

Looked way better on PlayrTV (PS3 version was shown), this does not do it justice!

Tbh it looks bloody fantastic (from the programme) and reminds me of the old Summer/Winter games on the C64 (and theres skeet shooting ala hyper sports woohoo!).

So the first pic is bad. The rest seems ok, for an olympic game...

About the game

    KORNdog and i say that as someone who believed half life 2 is still the greatest FPS ever made. but it's still an issue that plagues a lot of games. horizon recently was terrible at this with the audio logs. (6 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog but that's a common problem with maintaining player control even when characters are talking at you. you get distracted and start fannying around. (7 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @MrWhite: eh, i'll give you alex vance, but i don't really find any of the others particularly well written. and i'd argue throwing boxes while you're supposed to be engrosse in story is bad design. (8 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Sometimes the less you know about a character too = more interesting. Like G-Man. He pops up now and again being a creepy bastard. Thats what makes him interesting. (2 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Plus the fact you were messing about with boxes is a good thing, no? Game first, story and characters second is my motto. (2 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @KORNdog: Come on Korn, you know thats a horseshit statement you made. Before Naughty Dog and Bioware with Mass Effect, there was Alyx Vance. She may be a bit dated these days, but back then... (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @MrWhite: i guess i missed it. i was too busy running about all over the place throwing boxes around as my mute husk. lol (2 Hours ago)
