The Olympic sport of snow for the third time returning to the coastal city of Canada, and many families come together to support the selection in winning another gold medal in various forms full of adrenaline, competition, challenges, and cold. Very cold. But not enough to freeze our heads, and many other people who are unaware or ignore this global event. It was not strong enough the impact of sports at the Snow in Portugal, and even though only one representative in the Portuguese form of Skii believe that at the end of the tests will still ask where is Vancouver.
However, Sega has not forgotten us and gives us a chance to win more than one gold medal, the official game of the Winter Olympics, Vancouver 2010.
Once we get a very fast access and very basic modes and a list of 14 events a total of 86. All with a mechanical difference between them, but we only have an experience shared between sports skii, snowboarding, bobsleigh and skating, which is a small and incomplete variety of modes makes the game really is unfaithful the Olympic Games. A large failure by Sega, not to mention the absence of editing of characters and the ability to choose one of 24 countries.
Modes allow Olympic Training and in general, to prepare the player for the big challenge that we find in the Challenges mode. It takes little skill or spend much time in these modes. Although a small and fast, simple presentation that functions as a tutorial, after 2 or 3 attempts will be able to fully master all the controls and to have all gold medals with ease.
The gameplay is not something that arouses great concern among players. The easy handling and low use of all the buttons on the controller makes Vancouver a 2010 game very much simpler than it seems. With the simple push button and a small synchronization with the movement of the feet or hands of the characters in the game, we can achieve great speeds and avoid various obstacles with the directional controls are as we try at all costs, to achieve the ultimate goal first. And even here, the diversity of all types continued rather weak in terms of “button smash.” We always feel that the game was designed for a command with only 6 or 8 buttons.
Graphically, the game can overcome a lot of snowboarding games or theme and the lack of an exploratory mode allows greater concentration on the details of scenery and the rendering of the characters. Vancouver 2010 convinced many players with its brightness and with all its colors more fun and more joy, something that reflects a lot during races where snowboarding has several characters simultaneously.
Music of the Pop genre Coscuréis the soundtrack with a little more adrenaline but it is not what makes it one of the great things of the game. All the fun and interest comes from the speed and visual appearance of all the scenarios. And how could not miss, we always have the right to hear the glorious national anthem when we reach the gold medal. A short version, but we can always take the time to raise our flag and respect the motherland.
Now the multiplayer mode, revolutionizes somehow, all the player’s interest as opposed to the single-player mode. This is where much of the fun arises. Both offline and online, four friends can participate in all events and compete among the best times possible, but since the saying goes, nothing lasts forever, and the vast repeatability overwhelms our patience and we ended up losing all will to continue play.
In general, the game manages to draw the attention of many followers of the Olympic games, but has enough potential to be singled out as a game worthy of a silver medal. There was a lot of work in the game and see it in some of the events, but it is impossible to refute the possibility of lack of commitment to a successful Beijing 2008 and proved to be.
