London 2012 - The Official Video Game of the Olympic Games brings you the entirety of the greatest sporting event in the world, released by SEGA in partnership with International Sports Multimedia (ISM), the exclusive licensee of the International Olympic Committee (IOC). This game is here to extend the incredible legacy to you, allowing you to take part in this honourable event right in your own home.
There are over 45 of the official Olympic events in this game, giving you a wide variety to choose from as you set out to win the gold. Several events have been introduced here that haven't before appeared in an Olympic sporting game, such as keirin (cycling), the 10m synchronised platform diving, and the trampoline, amongst others. These events are made all the more real by the select few being compatible with motion control for the Playstation Move and Kinect for the XBOX, allowing you to truly mould yourself in to the Olympic athlete you are.
There are four modes to play these events in: Olympic Mode, Events Mode, Online Mode, and Party Play. This variety of modes allows you to compete in every way possible against your friends, family, and the world. With every medal you win for your country you earn National Pride points, and all of this is displayed on a global online leaderboard, meaning you're competing for both personal and national glory. No pressure!
To add to the thrill and excitement that is steadily amassing for this grandiose event, this game has been made as realistic as possible right down to the graphics, commentary, and the style of presentation for each event you compete in. Whether near or far, with this game you can win both the gold and the glory for your country and yourself from your own home, and be part of the Olympic spirit

i love the games
Ralph, South Africa. 19 August 2012
The games are fun if played on the usual PS3 controller. If you think that it will be fun on the PS move... forget it. I was sorely disappointed with how poorly the move games have been written. For example: the table tennis in PS3 Sports Champions is way better than that on the London 2012. The move is better calibrated on the Sports Champions game. To me it feels like SEGA added the move portion as an afterthought. The javelin is fun though. The games could have been much better on the move if you actually played games that made you move e.g. a pedalling motion with the move controllers to control your speed in the keirin (cycling).
As for the game as such, the graphics are great and it's fun to play games where you swim or jump on trampolines for a change! The only other disappointment is the fact that fictitious names had to be used. On the positive side the service I got from Takealot from order to delivery was exceptional.
