Summary: Not being a sports fan in any way I wasn't sure if buying this game would be a waste of money. I was glad I was wrong. Don't be put off by 2008 in its title - I've just bought it now (December 2010) and it looks great and is great fun.
Excerpt: Even though I am a big fan of the Olympics I didn't really want to buy this game. That is until I played it at a friends house. Even then I still didn't really want to buy it, but the more I thought about it the more I wanted to get it. So I did. The career mode is quite fun to play through.
Excerpt: This game brings the essence of the 2008 Olympics to your fingertips. With a large range of different sports that are available, it gives you a wide range of different things for you to try. These 38 events are spread around 10 different sports which are track, cycling, gymnastics etc.
Summary: Really good game, great fun. Took me a while to get used to the controls but now I no them most of the events are easier. But I just can't get the hang of the running no matter how much I toggle the analogue sticks or mash x and o the runner won't go any faster and I always come in last place.
Summary: WELL I GOT THIS GAME AND SAID WOW WHAT A GAME THIS IF YOU HAVE COMPETITON WITH PS3 OR WITH YOUR MATES AS 100M 200M 400M PISTOL SHOOTING AND LOADS MORE EVEN TABLE TENNIS APART FROM THAT ALL EVENTS THERE I WILL GREAT ON LINE TO THE ONLY DOWN SIDE TO THIS IS SAGA HAVE NOT LEFT NO ROOM TO SET YOUR OWN...
Summary: I am a huge fan of button bashing games like the Olympic ones that come out. Some of my favourites are the good old Olympic Gold (1992) and Athens (2004). This one has great potential. Nearly 40 events are included although many of them are very similar.
Summary: Due to bad reviews, i wasnt expecting much from this game but i though id give the game the benefit of the doubt.... the CRITICS R STUPID! This game is so much fun to play: feels good to break records, good challenge to learn each even, fun to play against friends, 2player online!
Summary: Again there is an official Olympic game to go with the sporting event and again they have impressed. Athens 2004 was the golden moment of the olympic games and i didn't expect it Beijing 2008 to top it. I was right Athens 2004 is better overall however Beijing 2008 does have a few advantages.
