  • Conclusion: Those who like sports games will like Beijing 2008. The combination of old school button mashing, and intricate control manipulation means that this title is probably the best Olympic videogame so far.

Beijing 2008 game review

Boys' Life magazine
21 September 2008
  • Excerpt: Keep the excitement of the 2008 Summer Olympic Games alive with Sega’s Beijing 2008, a game full of 38 Olympic events starring YOU. But does Sega win a gold medal? My heart quickened a little when I opened the game. I was ready to win all the medals or at least try.
  • Pros: Play online with people the world over; realistic graphics; 38 events
  • Cons: Way too challenging at times; no soccer or volleyball; no Michael Phelps

  • Summary: Who knew qualifying for the Olympics could be so difficult? Instead of a worldwide competition crafted around ideas that fit in with the modern gaming landscape, this is just an archaic compilation of mostly old, painful gameplay techniques that wore out their welcome decades ago.
  • Pros: Detailed athletes, Good online play
  • Cons: Archaic, blister-causing controls, Way too difficult, Only 32 countries, with no real participants, Level-up system goes against reality, Lousy tutorials

  • Excerpt: The Olympics – competition of champions! They might have been around since the ancient world was less ancient, but this is the first time they've been around with all of 2008's accumulated knowledge to spare you the effort of tortuous training to get involved.

  • Conclusion: All in all this is a more than competent effort at an Olympic Games err... game, for the most part it looks great, and the replays really show off the well-animated and modelled athletes and the packed stadium well, although here and there the frame rate seems a bit jerky for no apparent reason.
  • Pros: Loads of events for up to 4 players, The Archery, Out in time for the real games
  • Cons: Some awkward and unnatural feeling controls, Frame rate problems, The Judo
