hoping this will be decent, since I only have 5 achievements left on Beijing 2008...

my hands and arms hurt though :)

any info on how the events (power etc) are done will be really useful, but there seems to be so little info out there at the moment

I really hope itīs 1-button mashing in this game, especially if i choose the xbox360 version.
The buttons are too hard to mash, but 1 is better than 2.

This game is an insult to track & field.
I tried to give it a chance, but i just got nervous and wanted to throw the gamedisc at some innocent stranger.
I just want to leave that experience behind.
Tried it for the ps2, but i donīt think it differs very much from the 360 version except for the graphics.

Im not one to slam graphics if the gameplay is there, but this game is as mentioned, an insult.

The graphics could be PSOne, let alone a PS2, the animations are awful.

The gameplay is ok, similar to beijing, but watching a 100metre runner, run like a pigeon is laughable.

Havent checked how many events differ from beijing, but beijing raised the bar (pun intended).

Its an ok game if beijing wasnt available, as beijing is available its just below mediocre (and the character creation is laughable)
