Perfect compliment to the Olympic games

  • Excerpt: "...got my first look at Sydney 2000 I instantly thought it was nowhere near as good as Track & Field or Track & Field 2. The graphics are quite poor and the events didn't look particularly good. But playing the game against friends using my multitap made the game very fun and quite addictive. The events are more complicated than on Track & Field, which I think is a good feature. I was playing on this game on a 2 day rental, and almost the entire ...
  • Pros: Olympic mode  -  spend a long time training before you win the gold
  • Cons: Graphics aren't as good as Track & Field 2

Suffering Sydney

  • Excerpt: "...a simple interface that is Sydney 2000. While there are limits to the number of events, it will take time for you to get bored of those present, and certain speciality events, such as shooting and diving become a welcome break after the tapping that is involved in most of the other events. Would I reccommend this game? It depends, it is great fun, and the competition from both the computer and your fellow players makes this game one of the most ...
  • Pros: Fun, friendly, graphically good and great sounds .
  • Cons: Repetitive, and painful !

  • Excerpt: "Another Olympics game takes the plunge in my reviewing and this time its a good opinion! Eidos took control of this Olympic event and unlike Konami with the Winter Olympics they got it absolutely right! The events are so much fun and a whole Olympics can take you months to complete! From 100m sprint to high diving, this game gets a huge thumbs up from me! It may not have the greatest graphics but by god its good fun! Its a little hard on your fingers ...
  • Pros: Family fun !
  • Cons: Hurt fingers after a while !

There are different events including 100m sprint, 400m running, diving, hammer, javalin, swimming, cycling, canoeing, high jump, long jump, tipple jump and a few more.

  • Excerpt: " Sydney 2000 is an okay game. It has good graphics and the idea is quite attractive but after a while it can get a bit boring. The game consists of around 12 different sports or events that you can take part in and you have to play for Great Britain. Once you select a sport you choose your options and then start. In each activity to get the athlete or participator to actually do something you press the corresponding button on the controller to what ...

  • Excerpt: "...my best mates bought me Sydney 2000 during the height of the summer's Olympic fever. We quickly became addicts, but found the game far tougher to master, and the controls less responsive. It's difficult to compare the two games, as the graphics on Syndey 2000 are outstanding, and the presentation truly superb. That said, much more could have been made of the season mode, where you train an athletics team and then take them to the olympics. A great ...
  • Pros: Great graphics and presentation
  • Cons: Long loading times; strenuous season mode

  • Excerpt: "This is the official computer game for the olympics, which is in the same style as "track and field", in which you have to tap as quickly as possible alternate buttons to make your person: have more stamina, speed or stength as you are competing in your event. There are 12 events in this game, ranging from the 100m sprint, javelin and triple jump to kayaking and cycling. Each is a mixture between tapping the buttons fast and timing another button ...
  • Pros: reasonable graphics, frantic gameplay
  • Cons: Can get a little tiring  -  literally !

  • Excerpt: "...that you will find in Sydney 2000 is the k1 kayaking. This takes place in the exact replica of the course in Sydney and it's probably the hardest challenge of them all. The object is more difficult than it might sound - paddle your way through 21 gates without knocking the poles, or missing the gates - but the logistics of simulating kayaking on a Playstation give quite a challenge. The hardest gates are the upstream gates, this means you must paddle ...
  • Pros: Very realistic events .
  • Cons: Sadly the names of the athelets are still not there .
