    Athens is great. I am still playing it now!!!

    Great game, and great fun but you do lose the excitement after a while because there is not as many events as the real athens 2004 olympics. The graphics was alright, but nothing too spectacular. This is surely a bett... Read Full Review

    Absolutely nothing good here

    Ever play Track and Field on the NES? Okay, now, remembering that was 20 years ago, make it ridiculously frustrating, and add other events that are basically the same thing, and you have Athens 04, which is up there for... Read Full Review

    One of those games that will be up on your shelf never used. EVER. A lousy boring game.

    Athens is a sports game intended to give the player some feel as if they were in the olimpics (to some extent). Although this may be the case Athens doesn't deliver as well as they could of in terms of entertainment valu... Read Full Review

    A bit more of an effort would have at least made this decent, instead we got a mediocre Olympics game

    We have played so many Track & Field games over the years, there's the original Track & Field, my personal favourite Hyper Sports, how about International Track & Field for the PS, maybe even ESPN's version o... Read Full Review

    Athens 2004 is a lousy game.

    The best of it's kind!

    There's really not much to say about this game. It's a lot better than any other Olympic game (Sydney 2000, Salt Lake 2002, Torino 2006...). And it has really awesome multiplayer! d gf r g r s gt bh u fg r y ju g r y h... Read Full Review
