London 2012 - Official Mobile Game strives to be the heir apparent to Wii Sports and the arcade classic Track & Field. Unfortunately, it falls short of that goal. It's certainly entertaining to pound your device's screen with your fingers/thumbs, but the game's responsiveness is average (and not where it needs to be for a reflex title like this). And the tacked-on in-app purchase elements seem like an obvious money-grab (a premium version provides more currency, stamina, and experience points).

Also, the app is plagued with minor technical glitches that are annoyances. If you're going to play, get the free version.
