    With the olympics just gone, Beijing did a wonderful job of recreating the track and field game. this though, is a half-arsed attempt to milk it. some of the events such as the 100/200m are straight forward (how can they not be). but others such as swimming, the jumping events are extremely poorly implemented and irritating. also lack of live features and such others show that its a rushedWith the olympics just gone, Beijing did a wonderful job of recreating the track and field game. this though, is a half-arsed attempt to milk it. some of the events such as the 100/200m are straight forward (how can they not be). but others such as swimming, the jumping events are extremely poorly implemented and irritating. also lack of live features and such others show that its a rushed game and not worthy of being released, titles like this should be pulled of the shelves.

    Summer Athletics doesn't have a lot going for it. Some of the events can be fun on some level, but there are better competition games on the market. It also has some pretty big presentation issues, which is unfortunate.
  2. The quality and overall consistency is better than Beijing 2008, although it lacks visual flair and presentation, but once you factor in the crippling absence of online play, it becomes harder to make a call the better of the two.
  3. Summer Athletics gets off to a good start with a generally competent control system. It's a shame that its lack of features means that it can't quite go the distance, and ultimately ends up coughing, wheezing and spluttering after just four or five hours of gameplay.
