Videogamer writes: "With SEGA having focussed on next generation consoles with its officially licensed realistic Olympic Games title, Wii owners currently have to make do with the also officially licensed, but less than realistic Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games. Summer Athletics from dtp entertainment looks to fill that void on the Wii, offering a proper Olympic-like experience but without the official license.
While Summer Athletics is available on numerous platforms the Wii game is the most unique. Developer 49 Games has tried where possible to mimic each of the 26 events by using the Wii Remote and Nunchuck. Obviously this wasn't really possible with events like diving and high jump, but the majority at least resemble what you'd be doing with your arms if taking part in each event in real life."
