Summer Games 2004
(hx) 06:26 PM CEST - Aug,29 2004

I haven't played any good sport PC game very long time (probably since Sydney 2000), that's why I've decided to check out recently released Summer Games 2004. The game contains 10 disciplines within the ranges running, swimming and shooting. There are a dozen events in all, including 100m/ 400m Sprint, 110m/ 400m Hurdles, High Jump, but also included are a couple of surprises in the swimming 50m/ 100m/ 400m Freestyle and 100m/ 200m Butterfly and shooting 25m Rapid Fire Pistol (the goal is to score as many rings as possible in a limited time).

The game includes three modes of play: Arcade-Game, Tournament 2004, Training and Hotseat. In Arcade Mode, you can select your athlete choosing sex, name and nationality. Each discipline can be selected separately and you have to compete in the preliminaries in order to reach the Semi-Final and Final. The Computer will control the other athletes. The athletes competing in the preliminaries will be chosen at random. After the first round, the four best athletes of each heat advance to Semi-Final. The four best Athletes of each Semi-Final will participate in the Final. In the high jump it is necessary to clear a certain qualification height in order to advance to the finals. Shooting does not have a Qualification and starts directly with eight athletes in the final. In the Tournament Mode, Athletes compete in all the disciplines. There is no Qualification necessary. After all disciplines are completed, a results table will list medals and points scored of all participating athletes and Nations. You have to unlock disciplines in the Tournament mode to make them available in the arcade mode. By competing successfully in a given event during a Tournament, this event together with its variations (e.g. 50/100/400m freestyle) will be available in the Arcade Mode. There's also a Training Mode. Using this mode, you can practice every event indefinitely to hone your skill to perfection. Finally, there's Hot Seat mode. During High Jump and shooting you take alternate turns, but during the running and swimming disciplines it is possible for two players to compete simultaneously.

I had no real problems with the controls. There are four movement keys, action key and pause key. For instance, during the running and swimming events, the left and right keys have to be pressed alternately in fast and constant rhythm in order to accelerate and keep the pace up. If the rhythm is broken up by not pressing any key, the athlete will slow down (do you remember 8-bit games for ZX Spectrum and Atari - Summer Games, Decathlon?) The key to success is to find the right rhythm for every discipline. At the Rapid Fire Pistol event, the movement keys (or mouse) are used to control the crosshairs which will shake a little bit. After each shot, the cross hair automatically moves to the next target.

Overall, Sydney 2000 just seems like a mediocre game. Once you've mastered the techniques for running, jumping, swimming and shooting - which usually involve little more than pounding two buttons in smooth rhythm and then hitting an action button to jump or shoot- there's just not much else to do.

This game is crap as crap can be. It's a shame for the good old Summer Games on C64.
