  • Summary: If you buy into the whole button-mashing mentality of track and field games, you'll find that Sydney 2000 turns in a solid, finger-numbing performance.

  1. If you are a hard core gamer, but a lousy button masher (no-not an oxymoron) you will have a sucky time. That's as fair as I can be as non-masher.
  2. This is knuckle-busting controller-breaking button-mashing action all the way, and it still works as well as ever.
  3. The only way I can recommend this game is if you have a bunch of friends to play against head-to-head.
  4. Pressing alternating buttons as quickly as possible is only challenging (and fun) for so long, but with the exception of a few events, that's all this game is.
  5. The latest in button-mashing, a genre that lost its excitement eons ago.
  6. 50
    For those of you with friends that also like this type of game, it supports multiplayer play for up to eight people. Just don't ask me to be one of them.
  7. Playing Sydney 2000 is going through rote finger tapping or timing exercises that will quickly get boring.

    With the exception of a couple of events Sydney 2000 involves little more than mashing buttons as fast as you can in order to make your athlete run, jump, throw etc, a mechanic that hasn't changed since Track and Field was released back in the mid 80's.

    All together there are twelve Olympic activities to take part in and, if you can find a group of mates to play with, it can provide some competitive fun for a short time. The novelty wears of pretty quickly however and it'll soon disappear into the cupboard not to be seen again for another four years.
