Before you know it, February will be right around the corner, and with it comes the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, which return to North America for the second time in a decade. Just like last year's Summer Games, Sega will be publishing the official licensed game for the upcoming Vancouver Olympic Games. Jeremy Zoss checked out Vancouver 2010: The Official Game of the Winter Olympic Games during a recent Sega-sponsored trip to Park City, Utah, the site of the 2002 Winter Olympics. Here's a snippet of his brief hands-on time:
"The first event I played was bobsled, which simulates the downhill ice-track event with simple controls. After hitting the X button -- Sega was demoed the game on PS3 -- to build power and jumping in the sled with the Circle button, all the player needs to do is steer the sled down the track -- but there’s a catch. It’s a two-man team, so you control both athletes with the left and right analog sticks, leaning them in unison to master the track’s curves. Picture a lightning-fast version of Katamari Damacy and you’ll get the idea."
Are you planning watch the Games in February? Does the prospect of another Olympic licensed title ever get you worked up for the big event?
