  • Excerpt: Games at the moment have become quite a static affair bar a couple (you know who you are!) and are pretty formulaic compared to some years. How many more FPS’s do we need? When is the next adventure game out? Is there anything else that the FPS genre provide?

  • Conclusion: If you’ve been a fan of previous Olympics video games you’ll probably find this game as one of the best. The combination of stellar graphics with a bunch fun and exciting events make it an excellent choice for someone who is already a fan of the genre.

  • Conclusion: Beijing 2008 doesn't escape from the stereotypical Olympic Games video game mold – it's a series of some good and bad mini-games that, while somewhat fun with others, don’t amount to much entertainment.

Beijing 2008 Olympic Games Review

16 March 2009
  • Excerpt: My fingers still bear the scars from a competitive gaming childhood. While I tired my hardest to beat my brother at every game, it was Track and Field and its many copies that saw the most fevered competition. During my younger years I was innocent to the ways of button mashing.

A surprisingly deep (and hard) track & field game.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that this game is directly tied to the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, and is, as a result, squeaky clean. Indeed, the only thing likely to offend anyone is the game's surprisingly high level of difficulty.

  • Conclusion: When you do the Decathlon or Heptathlon you get different charcters for each of the events which is odd and would have been very easy to fix. Also you can't name your start height for the high jump and pole vault and have to accept or reject each height starting from the lowest.

  • Excerpt: Olympic games have generally never been the most graphically-enhanced game titles on any given system, but Eurocom's Beijing 2008 certainly makes a run at the title and brings home a silver.

  • Excerpt: Any hardcore gamers out there still? Ya’ll remember Track & Field on the 8-bit NES? If you liked that Konami product from back in the day, then you need to check out Beijing 2008 from Sega. Maybe someday one of my home towns will get its own video game.

  • Excerpt: OK, I admit it. I’m confused. Put simply, I just don’t understand why people are giving this game such a hard time. Sure, it’s a multi-event athletics title which should mean that – given it isn’t published by Konami (bow down) – by law, it has to be unplayable.
