  1. It needs a little polishing. However, given that, it's not a deadweight game, and if you're an Olympic fanatic, you can overlook the flaws in the game.
  2. 70
    Like the PlayStation version, the game requires a specific tempo to your button presses, and it's very difficult to gauge correctly.
  3. I still wouldn't buy this game, but if given a choice of rentals, I'd pick the DC version of Sydney 2000 over the PlayStation version.
  4. Potential buyers should already know that it will involve incessant button mashing, and newcomers should be warned that, without a joystick, there's not a lot of fun to be had here.
  5. 50
    To make matters worse the controls are pathetic, lacking any kind of creative vision or even an attempt to bring unique fun to the majority of the competition.
  6. Its substandard graphics, poor sound and simplistic gameplay make this at most, a rental title indeed.
