The Return of International Track and Field

11 April 2006
  • Excerpt: "Athens 2004 is by far the best game in its genre, though this is no surprise as it's probably the only game of its type. The game puts you in the 2004 Olympic Games, as a country of your choice. The selection of possible countries is very good, though most people won't want to be the Peoples Republic of Korea. The first minor problem with this game is the fact that countries don't replicate the actual country their based on, so the Eastern European's ...
  • Pros: Multi - player mode & good range of events & Countries to compete with
  • Cons: Difficulty of Some events, no licences & the Russians don't win the gymnastics??

  • Excerpt: "This game has lots of good good things about it, but many cons aswell. It can be picked up for a cheap price from any good games emporium, and is really fun with a few friends over. The single player is, however, limited. Graphics: Fairly good graphics, but unfortueately, no liscensed faces from the athletics world. Shame. You can choose which country you want to represent, but this seems like a pointless addition, as it doesnt matter wether ...
  • Pros: Really good multiplayer fun
  • Cons: Really repetitive gameplay

  • Excerpt: "Athens 2004 is the officially licenced video game for the 2004 Athens Olympic Games.It seeks to recreate all the hype tension and glamour of the Athens Olympics. Fans of track & field will instantly be at home with this game as many of the events require expertise in the "button mashing" style of gameplay. The game itself has twenty five different events from seven different Olympic Sports including Aquatics, Athletics, Gymnastics, Archery, Equestrian, ...
  • Pros: lots of diffrent games

  • Excerpt: "...and this was released post athens 2004 hysteria. MODES It has a single player and a multiplayer mode. The single player mode is quite good, you get to hone your expertise and go for gold! The records the computer has set are easily beatable, but getting a personal best every time is where the addiction is! BUTTON BASHING! Every sport in the olympics is there, even boring sports like showjumping. It is quite ingenious in the way the controls ...

Not for the left-handed game player

garyemmer..., Ciao
4 November 2004
  • Excerpt: "To be honest, the quality of this game is not in question. The graphics, the athletes, the details of each event (there is running, gymnastics, horse riding, archery, shooting among the activities to go for gold). All round on that front it is one of the most impressive games I've played. My main gripe, and this should really be with Sony rather than the manufacturers of the game, is that the majority of the control involve quickly tapping the ...
  • Pros: Superb graphics and detail

Sehr anstrengend

Erik Hartung "Erik", Amazon
19 January 2009
  • Summary: Ich finde ein richtig gutes SPiel und es macht auch richtig viel Spaß, sowohl im Einzel als auch Mehrspieler Modus. Es sind auch schöne viele Disziplinen. Aber die Grad zwischen einfacher Steuerung, anstrengender Steuerung und einfach nicht anatomischer schaffbarer Steuerung ist sehr groß. Also meine Finger haben ordentlich gelitten, gequalmt usw.

Nur Silber für Athen 2004

EAsUncleSam, Ciao
21 November 2005
  • Summary: Athens 2004 kann man sicher als einen legitimen Nachfolger für die legendäre Track & Field Reihe sehen. Bei dieser Art von Spielen gibt es nur zwei Einstellungen dazu: Entweder man hasst oder liebt sie. Bei mir ist es eindeutig Liebe. Deswegen habe ich mir das Spiel auch recht bald nach Erscheinen geholt. Am bewährten Spielsystem hat sich nicht viel geändert: Das Hauptziel bei den meisten Disziplinen ist es die Knöpfe X und O möglichst schnell hintereinander zu drücken.
  • Pros: 25 Disziplinen, Mehrspielermodus
  • Cons: Grafik, Steuerung
