Purchased the incomplete game (no manual) as that is all that was available, but instructions are easy to search online. A couple of the events won't load in any game mode (Olympic or Arcade). This includes the 100m freestyle, which was the event I most looked forward to...
Technical issues aside, I'm not really enjoying the game. They tried too hard to go realistic with it. I miss the earliest renditions of Olympic games (or World Games, on the PC - anyone remember that?!) where the avatars were small and cartoony, but the gameplay was engaging, if somewhat limited in the possibilities to surpass your best scores once you mastered the button mashing or timing. The graphics, while trying to be realistic (for the time period) are just a little off-putting. Also, the qualifying rounds just to get to the Olympics are annoying.
