London 2012: The Official Video Game of the Olympic Games for PC, X360 and PS3 is an official game of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. We take part in a number of disciplines, striving for victory and recognition in the eyes of the worldwide audience. The game was created by Sega Australia studio.


The game allows the players to take part in over 30 different disciplines, such as track events, shot put, long jump, and many more. In the primary mode, we compete with enemies controlled by AI. Our goal is to win in every discipline. The controls has been designed in such a way to not only respond to experienced players, but also to those less familiar with the topic. When it comes to technical aspects, the whole game was neatly polished the creators made use of the effects of the professional motion capture sessions, registered in a specialistic studio located in Brisbane, Australia.

Technical aspects

An alternative to single-player gameplay is rivalry with players all around the world, thanks to network scoreboards. The classic multiplayer is also present, allowing to compete with friends in a head-to-head competition. The additional motivation for further play is the ability to constantly set new records. The graphical layer is very neat and places special emphasis on recreating the appearance of individual players. The stadiums also look nice, and additional flavor is retained from the fact that the game uses the official licence bought by the publisher.
