    Craptacular. To start with you must have a XBox360 for windows controller to even play the game on PC. I gave it one point because some of the games are OK, and Im thinking swimming and target based sports (but they very quickly lose their appeal through repetition), but any of the track and field sports have more to do with luck and sore fingers than any game skill.

Absolute waste of money, with many of the old button mashing commodore 64 sport games having better gameplay than this crock. To show you how bad it is, even my kids won't play it. Expand

    It's a very nice game to play whit multiple players. There are lots of games you can shoose from. On the pc version you see excactly the same as an xbox360 player; use B to... , Use A to.. . It's very sad. And in the control menu there isn't even the meaning of LT and RT. So you don't know what button you need to use when it saids on the screen to use it! thats why I It's a very nice game to play whit multiple players. There are lots of games you can shoose from.

    This is a disappointment to the gaming industry cos a game like this which most fun would love to play is so difficult that your fingers hurt each time you play. I won't advice anyone to waste money on this game. I think they should bring out a new version with different controls.

    This thing is *completely* unplayable on PC. Scandalous.

    This game isn't bad, but isn't good. Some events are very easy to play like archery, swimming, discus, shooting, but much of them are unplayable!!!!!!!

    This game is f*cking awful, it seems this game promotes guns, because the only somewhat playable events are, the shooting events, some how Eurocom manages to bring out another pile of wich claims to be the next big sports game.

    They scored big here with the authentic presentation and the great selection of events but then they married it to a series of mini-games with such poorly designed controls that favor luck and calloused fingers over skill and insight.
  2. Beijing 2008 proves beyond a doubt that rapidly pushing buttons is not fun.
  3. 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 and the awful controls ruin what could have been a solid title.
