IGN gave the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 version a 7.3 rating, claiming that "If only this game had some semblance of a career mode or anything that felt slightly like the real Olympics, then perhaps SEGA would have had a real winner on its hands." GameSpot gave the PS3 and 360 a 5.5 rating saying "The limited selection of events leaves these Olympic Games out in the cold."
