  • Excerpt: I got this game for my birthday and i was ressonably happy with it to begin with. I enjoyed playing through the olympic games competting in the various events but i do think that the actual olympic games mode could be alot longer as it does not take long to complete it. When i play a game i expect a challenge but with this game i found parts of it to easy such as field events and other part rediculously difficult such as judo and platform diving.

Beijing 2008 dissapointing

  • Excerpt: Beijing Olympics 2008, for xbox 360, is a waste of money. On the 100m, you have to press A and B alternatively. However even how quick you do it, the game doesn't seem to actually know your doing it. Therefore you're really far behind the other opponents at the end of the race. If you did it really quickly though, it would probably work but wreck your controller in the process.

  • Excerpt: Not good, know anyone who can repeatedly mash buttons at very (and I mean very) high speeds for long periods of time? then this might be for them. I seriously believe that the violent stick wiggling that this game requires has a detremental affect on your control pad if played long enough.

  • Excerpt: Don't believe the hype surrounding this game! Sega must have been under a lot of pressure to get the game released because the sheer amount of bugs is unbelievable. Online play is full of glitches, server lag and rubbish gameplay, offline the game is a lot less buggy but that isn't to say its all that good. The xbox controller just wasn't made for stick waggling or button bashing. There are some events which use other methods to play but just not enough.

  • Conclusion: I would only recamend this to people with very fast hand movment this game really let me down its very hard. Dont waste your money on it. Save it up or by a diffrent game. Because the running is so hard you always came last. The game is very dissapointing.

Overall a pretty poor game...but they only come every 4 years!

  • Excerpt: Remember 'Track and Field'? Probably the first game to be released in the genre known as 'button bashing', surprisingly it set the template for athletics games for years to come. Beijing 2008 is of course based on last years Olympic games, and is a selection of 38 mini games... cough... I mean, 'events', including running, hurdles and swimming and some lesser known favourites such as archery... and some that barely translate into a game at all, such as weightlifting.

Not a great game, no addictiveness but ok to play for a while

  • Excerpt: Does what it says on the tin really, it is a game that you would expect to get when coming up to a major event such as the olympics. The single player game was enjoyable but was frustrating at times as you had to achieve a lot on most of the events to get to the next stage which was sometimes near impossible. Very satisfying when you finally did get the gold medal though!

gamers crave little bit more than sore thumbs and cramp in todays gaming world

  • Excerpt: Everyone has a few fond memories from some of these button bashing sporting titles over the years. From that sub-8 second time in the 100 metre sprint, through to a horrifically long 120 metre thrown in the javelin, these incredible feats of button prodding are ones that last long in the memory.

  • Excerpt: ho knew that qualifying for the Olympics could be so difficult? Instead of a worldwide competition crafted around ideas that fit in with the modern gaming landscape, this is just an archaic compilation of mostly old, painful gameplay techniques that wore out their welcome decades ago.
