Beijing 2008 Summer Olympics - Review

 

Do you still suffer from Olympic fever? Are you constantly checking NBC looking for any glimpse of a balance beam, pool, or waving country flags? Fear not, Summer Athletics is here with your cure. Sure, you would think that an Olympic-styled game would...

Those looking to continue their Olympic high with this title will be sorely disappointed. You are better off dishing out the 400 MS Points for Track N Field, which is a much better value and game. This game feels like a true test as to the power...

A large variety of events coupled with sharp graphics

Worst. Controls. Ever.; Sometimes it's downright impossible to beat the A.I. (e.g., the 100 meters)

Why play qualifiers instead of actually competing?

Beijing 2008 Review:

 

Beijing 2008 Review Xbox 360. The Olympic Games are about to begin in Beijing and to catch you whilst in the athletics mood, Sega has released the official game of the games. This mean that gamers wishing to reach the peaks of athleticism can d...

In closing, Beijing 2008 does bring home the spirit of the games, and with its large roster of events, there's something for every sports fan. I enjoyed the table tennis, archery and even some of the female gymnastic events (ahem), yet some events like...

Beijing 2008

 

Games based on the Olympic Games and Olympic events have been popular for years. Games such as Track & Field, Hyper Sports and Daley Thompson's Decathlon kept me busy for weeks during my teenage years and I dread to think how many joysticks they were...

Beijing 2008 is a game that's a mixture of the tried and trusted, innovation and disappointment. A good chunk of the events don't feel that different from the games you may have played over twenty years ago and still rely on joystick waggling or button...

Beijing 2008 Review (Xbox 360)

 

Recently, sports gamers have fretted over the word "accessible" and what it means to video gaming in general. When a company strives to make a sports game "accessible," the common connotation is that it will be "watered down," made too "kid-friendly,"...

Outstanding visuals. Large number of events. Sometimes a fun multiplayer experience

Shallow and unrealistic single player mode. Various events control very poorly. Gameplay can be overly repetitive

Beijing 2008 - Xbox 360 review - Pocket-lint

 

Going for gold?

Quite a few events, old school gameplay

Old school button bashing it may be, but we all crave a little more than sore hands these days

Beijing 2008

 

It's the official game of the event, but unlike the real thing there's nothing particularly ground-breaking about Beijing 2008. What you see is what you get, and with nearly 40 events it's a lot to cover. Unfortunately they're mostly similar to play...

Motion-capture isn't half bad. Some events are fun, and you can genuinely get enthused

Wrist-snappingly, RSI-inducingly bad controls. Some events are just awful in every respect. Repetitive character animation. Competitors sob-story cinematics can take a hike

Bronze.

Beijing 2008

 

Considering that every major sporting event comes with a licensed videogame companion these days, it's hardly surprising to note that the looming summer Olympics in China have spawned an official Beijing 2008 title to help squeeze yet more profit from...

Ultimately, Beijing 2008's sporadic hits are swamped by its all-too frequent misses, which only serves to highlight just how potentially good the overall game could have been had SEGA and Eurocom opted for interactive simplicity across the board....
