Beijing 2008 will be an authentic simulation of over 35 events from the upcoming Beijing 2008 Olympic Games and will allow gamers to experience the thrill of competing in many of the official venues ranging from the famous Beijing National Stadium (the "Bird Nest") to the National Aquatics Centre (the "Water Cube"). In addition, Beijing 2008 will incorporate innovative control schemes that allow novice gamers to learn how to play the game, while providing experienced gamers the chance to set new records. Superb online gameplay, and a variety of game modes never seen in an official video game of the Olympic Games before, Beijing 2008 will be the new benchmark for the sporting genre and truly allow gamers to experience the "Olympic Spirit".

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Challenging, but fun I like this game a lot, but it can get kind of frustrating when first learning how to do some of the different events. I love the variety of events. There are a ton of different events from track, field, swimming, gymnastics, shooting, and others!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Game Ever Beijing olympics is one of the best game i have evr played it is a great challenge but thats the fun of the game it challenges you and really gets you into the game because nobody likes a game that is to easy. One of the specific hard parts of the game is running it is hard when you first start but a you progress it gets easier but not to easy you might get frustrated a little bit but it will be worth getting frustrated you only get frustrated because of the challenge evrybody like a challenge im not sayin the game is really hard actually i should be hard if you pay attention to the instructions and listen very well it should come very easy to you. Ive played all the games madden09,ncaa09,ncaa football and basketball09,baseball09 everything so far this game has the best challenge and it is the funnes to play im a gamefreak i love this game and if you buy it im pretty sure you will like it to

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from WORST GAME EVER! Ok I have no idea how anyone can like this game. First of all you can't win at anything because the computer always seems to come back and win last second, secondly the controls are confusing and mess you up. And the running game is the worst game in history, it is impossible to win against the computer and you can't even go fast without tearing some skin off your hand in the process ( I would know). The only descent sport is archery which is still pretty bad because you have to go through like 5 people to get into the finals which will wast you time for about 20 minutes. I would rather play pong because pong is actually pretty fun, they should make it again for 360 or PS3.Overal this game is the worst game I have ever played, if you want a better game go out and buy atari.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Regular gamer This game overall is pretty good. Their are some things that they could have impoved on like the controls definitly. The characters in the game look good and you can even choose which characters you would like to use in the game. The presentations in the game are also a good feature they introduce everyone competing and at the end announce the winners with thier home countries athem. I would say if you want a sports game that you can keep playing this is a good buy. I would definitly recommend this game to olympic fans or just regular sports fan. I have played many sports games, but the Beijing 2008 Olympic is definitly one that I will not stop playing. It has so much variety, you can play over 30 events that have track & field, aquatics, gymnatics and much more. The games also lets you choose from over 30 countries that have unique characters. I definitly recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from HELL OF A GAME! I was born to be part of the olympics in some way and this game is better than the 96 summer games for sega genesis, the 98 Nagano winter games for n64, the 94 Lillehammer winter games for sega genesis and the 2000 sydney summer olympics for dreamcast. It is a challenge the first day, but the tutorials come in handy when you think that you're in for the frustration of your life. I hope one day they come out with all the games possible on a single game. It would be a challenge of domination. I am a gymnastics fan mostly, but I don't see why they picked the men to do the vault when it's more popular with the other three routines in women's gymnastics. What happened to the BMX racing in this game. I guess they didn't remember that they made it an olympic sport.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really, really love this game I just picked up this game and absolutely love it! It's very challenging yet easy enough to at least be competitive the very first day you pick it up. There are 35 or so events which will keep you busy for many hours. The online is fantastic, the graphics are pretty good and the creative button combinations to complete each event is great. I hate playing most sports games because once you master one, the rest are all the same, but this game is totally fresh as far as creativity in how you play the game. The game is great for teens on up but most likely too complicated for children....so my kids really can't play it which is a bummer. Like GH3, you can easily spend hours playing this game and lose the day. So far, I really have no complaints about the game. I highly recommend this game.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from hard THIS GAME is difficult the first few times you play but if you keep trying you will eventually figure it out. the controls use the right stick alot and that is very challenging. some games are easy most of the events are very difficult. the running is challenging because you A and B or u can use the right or left sticks wich make it very challenging. the shooting and archery are very realistic, and are also fun to play. the diving is somewhat easy and the swimming is the same story. i garuntee you wont be great at this game the first time you play it but keep trying it really is a great game. i would recomend this game to all levels of gamers. this game (bejing 08) was definetly worth the money. i could play this game for hours there is so much stuff to do from weight lifting to diving and swimming.
