Michael Phelps: Push the Limits follows in the footsteps of other Olympic athletes embracing the video game industry, but it poses many differentiating qualities. For starters, there are very few swimming games; it's a very different category than snowboarding games or even gymnastic games. Second, Phelps is very much a standout athlete (8 gold medals in 2008 plus 6 in 2004) and is able to provide an unparalleled level of inspiration. Add all of that to this intense, active, and get-up-and-move game, and you have an experience that feels energetic and motivational as much as it is fun and enjoyable.
