Too late to be interested in it now to be honest. If this had been released when the games were still on the TV I might have downloaded it to see what it was like.

I actually got to try it out in Zavvi in Glasgow… graphics look nice… but gameplay is either timed button presses or button mashing so its nothing you haven’t been playing since ‘88 Games in the arcades.

Might have a look at this later, I did enjoy the olympics. Does anyone know how many events are included in the full version?

“superior graphics capture the fine emotional detail of all 38 events where a fraction /…/”

if they released a demo after the olympics, it must be because it was better NOT to release the demo - i.e. the game must suck
