  • 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.

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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

Beijing Olympics - If only i was as good as team GB!!

  • Summary: I brought this game expecting a classic button mashing sports fest. The game as a whole has some very good aspects but i find the control system to be a little too complex. The idea of using the control sticks instead of the buttons is a nice idea but i found too often that this was slower than...

Shallow fun

  • Summary: This is a classic old school athletics game. In essence it's not really changed since the old Daily Thompson game on the Spectrum. There's a whole lot of waggling and button mashing. There's nearly 40 events, but a lot of them are very similar.

Great presentation, but a pain to play and incoherent.

26 February 2009
  • Summary: It had been quite a while since I tried an olympic-style game on a home format, mainly because I was getting cheesed off with joystick-waggling and button-mashing in earlier titles, mainly because both put a drain on the life expectancy of controllers and made me have to replace my joystick every...

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...
