    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

  • Review Score:6.5

    if you like the olympics then this is the game for you.

    This is a very good game whilst the olympics is on however when it finishes this game will go back in your cupboard and never be seen again. With average graphics, average gameplay and average sound, this game is certain... Read Full Review

    WHEN I discovered that there was an Olympic console game just around the corner I’ve got to admit it raised a smile. It doesn’t matter how many up-to-date, technologically-brilliant, super console games are released, I... Read Full Review

    I need to tear a new one into this game since it is mostly a button mashing bonanza. I can only play most popular olympic events like running, swimming etc. for 5 minutes before my arms start cramping up and I can no lo... Read Full Review

    Great game best served with a box of beers and a gathering of mates

    Yes, yes, another button masher but is that a bad thing? I think not. This game offers up many hours of great multi-player fun over numerous events. Weren’t born with at least two fingers or just simply don’t... Read Full Review

    Crying out for innovation.

    It's a low score. The game deserves it. I bought it and returned within 3 days, and got my money back. So my value for the game should be higher for a game costing $0. But it's that bad. Gameplay: A few good games amo... 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

    This is the best Olympics game by far! An absolutely brilliant button basher for you to play your mates!

    Ive had this game for ages now and really it is one of the best games i have bought. It is 100 times better than Sydney for the PS1 and beats it in every corner. The graphics arent top notch and theirs no real athletes ... Read Full Review
