When Sydney hosted the 2000 Olympics and Cathy Freeman took home the gold for Australia in the 100m sprint, it was definitely a defining moment for us here down under. It's just a shame the same can't be said for the various Olympics videogames we've seen over the years, which have been uninspiring at best. Like we see in the 'movie based video game' sector, the pressure to release in time overrides the pressure to release with quality, and with quite a few events to cover in videogame form, the end result has naturally been iffy at best. It's a surprise then to see the SEGA published and Eurocom developed Beijing 2008 turn out quite well relative to what we've seen in the past, although you'll still need to be an Olympics fan with sturdy agile fingers to get the most out of it."
