Manual

The game's instruction manual (for the PC and Amiga versions, at least) is notably poorly worded. A number of grammatical mistakes are made, and several sections make little sense. Examples include "made of concrete to high standards, competitors are subjected to forces of up to 4G" (which, taken literally, suggests that the competitors are made of concrete - the reference to the bobsleigh course was in the previous sentence), and a suggestion that, in Full Olympic mode, you can watch the opening ceremony AFTER completing the events.
