Daily Mail Review- Beijing 2008

With this bang-up-to-date return to Olympic territory, two things are remarkable. The first is how much things have changed - graphically, sonically, aesthetically and in terms of sheer scale.

The second is how little things have changed - no matter that technology has advanced, if you want to replicate athletics in a video game you still need to waggle joysticks furiously or bash buttons until your fingers bleed.

Dailymail reviewing games?? I thought they always said they corrupted the mind and are a really bad influence?
