    Some of the disciplines are quite fun to play, but in general it´s a boring title.

    Fun but tedious. Some games are morre fun than others. Discus is very hard to do. Still entertaining.

  1. This Olympic hopeful loses its flavor after you play through each event just once or twice. [Aug 2004, p.100]

    There's also been a lot of confusion in the gymnastics events where obscure controls seem to have alienated less experienced competitors from taking part at all.

    It's only the aesthetics that truly let Athens 2004 down. With a clean, unfussy menu system, it's disappointing to find this gives way to rough in-game visuals and limited animation....Nevertheless, the substandard veneer doesn't dim the shine of the gameplay. [Aug 2004, p.113]
