Summer Athletics

True achievements
10 November 2008
  • Conclusion: Overall: 4/10 Summer Athletics should be at least mildly enjoyable for you if you like these types of games, and if you're an achievement hunter looking for a doable 1,000 to add to your collection, this will definitely do that for you. If you really hate stick wiggling type games, or you're just not all that good at them, you might want to avoid this one as it'll cause nothing but frustration.

  • Summary: Infuriating controls sap any enjoyment out of Summer Athletics and it only looks a little better than a PS2 title.

  • Conclusion: Its odd that at the moment games developers are making not only the most realistic looking games ever but also some of the most realistic to play. Yet when it comes to athletic titles the format really hasn't changed at all. Your wrists and forearms will ache like they have never done before and you will need bags of endurance if you are to compete for the gold.

  • Conclusion: Summer Athletics è un titolo che provoca nel giocatore diverse reazioni, la prima impressione non è delle migliori, complice la grafica davvero scarsa che la fa da padrone in ogni settore del gioco. Superando l’impatto negativo si riesce ad apprezzare qualche disciplina ed a divertirsi, specie in multiplayer. Ma giocando a fondo si capisce come tra le 26 prove troppe si somiglino tra loro e ne manchino altre che avrebbero reso il gioco più vario e godibile.
  • Pros: Alcune discipline ben fatte;, In multiplayer riesce a divertire;
  • Cons: Grafica brutta e sonoro ripetitivo;, Troppi eventi simili tra loro;

Summer Athletics

  • Summary: Summer Athletics ist einen Tick besser als das enttäuschende Beijing 2008. Die Sportarten wurden meist recht authentisch umgesetzt, zumal die Steuerung der unterschiedlichen Disziplinen deutlich abwechslungsreicher ausgefallen ist, als beim offiziellen Spiel zu den olympischen Sommerspielen. Doch die schwache Technik und die fehlende Stimmung in den Arenen, sorgen für reichlich Unmut bei den Spielern.
  • Pros: - 26 abwechslungsreiche Disziplinen, - streckenweise gute, intuitive Steuerung, - mit Freunden recht unterhaltsam
  • Cons: - schwache Grafik, angestaubte Sounds, - kaum Atmosphäre in den Stadien, - fehlende Lizenzen, - recht üppige Ladezeiten, - einige Disziplinen belasten Mensch und Technik, - nur Offline-Multiplayer
