  1. If anyone buys this, I'd love to hear some impressions and get a few questions answered. Can you play as a "nation" or only as your avatar? Can you play through a whole olypics where the medal count of each nation is tracked? Are nations even represented in the game, or only avatars?
    your avatar selects a nation and for team sports and even individual team sports (judo) you play as other avatars for your country.  I think Sega is awesome and does so well in the graphics and immersion dept, but one thing that is super disappointing is how easy it is to beat a world record.  I've already ran a 9.2 in the 100m for example and I'm not even levelled all the way.  Leaderboards show times under 8sec - again super disappointing.  Even though it's not "realistic" they have all the records there so why smash them so easily?   You can play "medley's" either pre-selected events or custom events - not sure if ever single event is an option and the player with the most medals wins (either online or solo vs cpu) ... they def could have gone for more of what youre suggesting.  Gameplay is fun, some events much better than others though.  I tend to gravitate towards track and field mostly.
    Sweet, appreciate the info. I'm on the fence as far as purchasing. I have been jonesing for an Olympics game for a while now, but I'm concerned about the replay value. It's also a bummer that the records are so easy to break in the game. Thanks for the information!
    I wish there was a next-gen sim-style olympics sports game out there. I would play that to death. 
    I bought it... It's cheesy, but fun... The replay value will probably wear off before the Olympics are over... I pretty much got 80% of the trophies in playing it for 2 hours in the events... I haven't ventured online to play, but I suspect it will be just as cheesy... It is a fun, arcade style game, but like I said, it's going to probably quickly lose fun factor unless you have kids in your house that want to take you on from time to time... Definitely not a tough game to learn...
    Additionally, it is probably a $19.99 game and will be post Olympics I suspect.  I just like the Olympics so I chose to grab it day of release... Has a good variety of games, there are a few I wish were on there, and there are a few I could do with out. Wish they were heavier on track and field events, 200, 400, discus, shot put, pole vault, triple jump would have all been nice to have. Would have loved to seen some gymnastics, track cycling, some diving events,  indoor volleyball and golf...
    It is about the same inkcil.... After a while, it will run it's course... I have already gotten the platinum trophy, I doubt I touch the game again until the Olympics, and even then, I doubt it gets much gameplay...
    bought this with my father's day gift card.....it has it's pros and cons being a more arcade-style game as opposed to more realistic gameplay. the pros - easier controls and learning each sport, great customization options, games are relatively short timewise, pretty nice presentation. the cons - graphics are good - a bit cartoony, leans to a more arcade experience as opposed to realistic gameplay. overall, it's kind of like mario & sonic tokyo 2020 but without the mario and sonic license. should have made baseball like rbi baseball and basketball like nba jam. would have made sense if you are going the arcade route for gameplay imo. all in all, not a bad pick up considering the number of different sports you can play. would have been great if they made a realistic version AND an arcade version, but give sega credit for trying something different.
    I've actually been playing this game for 2 years... I used the Japanese version of the Nintendo e-shop to get it when it released in 2019. I had a blast playing it then, but I've noticed that it doesn't have much replayability value. The team sports are the best part of this game; this is really the first Olympics video game to do team sports (if you don't count beach volleyball). If you're looking for an arcade-style Olympics game, this will satisfy you for a short time.
    But if you want a simulation-style Olympics game, go back and play London 2012. That game still has me playing it, trying to shave off hundredths of seconds for better world records. Someday I want to see a London 2012-style game with all the sports that Tokyo 2020 offers. A game that has so many events that you're overwhelmed with them, but all playing simulation style. I thought Tokyo 2020 might be that game. Sadly it is not, but it still can be fun.
