Summary: Ok I have no idea how anyone can like this game. First of all you can't win at anything because the computer always seems to come back and win last second, secondly the controls are confusing and mess you up. And the running game is the worst game in history, it is impossible to win against the computer and you can't even go fast without tearing some skin off your hand in the process ( I would know).
Summary: For some reason this is one of the hardest olympic games I have ever played. At least with Sydney 2000 for the N64 if we button mash we destroyed the field or the Track and Field for NES we can use a turbo button. Those games were at least somewhat fun and addicting. Anyways I found this game difficult on some of the events which will be explained later, I have not played most of the events, but I heard kayaking and cycling was a pain.
DO NOT BUY UNLESS WILLING TO HAVE NO FUN AND BREAK YOUR ARMS!!

Summary: OK, this game is awful!!! The major problem is that the controls are suckish! Tap A and B repeatdly KILLS your hand and arm. Plus, they don't know how to explain things, even in the manual!! The graphics are okay... They exclude many sports, like BASKETBALL!!!!! Please do not buy this game, it is awful!! Rather than wasting your money on an AWFUL game, preorder Madden '09, or NCAA Football '09. Take my word for it.
Excerpt: SEGA ha avuto l'onore di creare il classico gioco da affiancare all'evento mondiale, quali le olimpiadi di pechino 2008. Questo onore non è stato recepito del tutto dalla SEGA in quanto il gioco risulta scadente, molto scenografico ma scadente nella giocabilità e nella longevità Il gioco permette di far gareggiare i nostri atleti in ben 38 discipline, divise in cinque categorie diverse.
Pros: Meno male che quello a cui ho giocato era di un mio amico
