    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 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!!!!!!!

    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.
