The article presents information on the Xbox video game Torino 2006, based on the Winter Olympics 2006 which were held in Turin, Italy. The alpine skiing, bobsledding, luge and ski jumping are mildly engaging. Most of the other events--which, oddly, don't include hockey or figure skating--are unbearable.
