Beijing 2008 game review

Boys' Life magazine
27 November 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. But there’s a problem right off: You have to download some of the game onto your console before you can play. Expect a five-minute wait, which is kind of a buzzkill.
  • 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

  • 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. Unfortunately, it’s one for the fans, and those that are not really into the sports genre, or prefer more main-stream titles will probably find themselves getting bored quickly of this game. Still, a good effort, and a worthy companion to this year’s games.

Beijing 2008 PS3, Xbox 360 Review

  • Excerpt: The year is 2008 and it’s annoyingly warm outside, guess that means summer is here and the 29th Olympics are just around the corner in Beijing. You probably already knew this, and also noticed the amount of summer athletic games that seem to be out, or coming out in the next couple of weeks.

  • Excerpt: Com os Jogos Olímpicos à porta, nada como falarmos sobre o vídeojogo oficial do evento desportivo. Como não poderia deixar de ser, os Jogos Olímpicos de Pequim tiveram direito a vídeojogo oficial. Desta vez foi a SEGA a tomar conta dos acontecimentos, colocando nas lojas uma obra algo desequilibrada, que varia entre momentos divertidos e outros que são para esquecer.

  • Summary: Irgendwie scheint es den Entwicklern bei "Beijing 2008" vor allem auf die Masse an Wettbewerben angekommen zu sein. Anders ist es kaum verständlich, wie langweilige oder schlecht zu steuernde Disziplinen wie Tischtennis oder Kajakfahren (um nur zwei zu nennen) überhaupt die Qualitätskontrolle überlebt haben. Aber auch bei den wichtigen Wettbewerben der Leichtathletik und des Schwimmens steuert sich der Titel nicht gerade eingängig.

  • Conclusion: Beau et sans soucis techniques Beijing 2008 : Le jeu officiel des jeux olympiques surprend son monde. Malheureusement il ne fera pas l’unanimité, la faute à un gameplay peu développé qui nous demande uniquement de jouer les bourrins marteleurs sur nos pauvres petites manettes. Aussi la bande son du jeu manque de peps et d’énergie.
  • Pros: Beau, Pas de soucis techniques, Enfin un portage de qualité, Diversité et multiplicité des épreuves, Durée de vie, Des soirées entre potes d’anthologie en perspective, Modélisation des mouvements
  • Cons: as si accessible que ça, L’aspect « j’explose ma manette et mes doigts » pour gagner, La bande son
