Replete with the official licence and a comprehensive selection of events, Sony’s Olympic tie-in Athens 2004 also remembers to bring plenty of entertainment along with it. In many ways harking back to the button-bashing titles of old, Athens 2004 features over two dozen events, each of which requires a slightly differing discipline to succeed in. The sprints still require you to hit alternate buttons as fast as you possibly can, of course, whilst others also require you to attain a fast speed, but add a timing element too. Then there are events such as the archery, and these test skill rather than speed. An added innovation is the ability to use your dance mat on certain events, and it’s a feature that genuinely works very well–much to the amusement of other players in multi-player mode, of course!
Now whilst some events work better than others, there’s little doubt that most gamers are going to find something they can warm to here. With a wide selection of game modes and the comprehensive selection of events, there’s plenty of entertainment for your money. Each of the events are easy to get to grips with, and some are harder to master than others. Crucially, though, there are few that won’t entertain you on some level.
Topped off with quality presentation and some strong multimedia work, Athens 2004 is something of a triumph, then. It comes into its own when more than one player takes part, but even without, it’s an enjoyable, very good value for money game, and a worthy tie-in to the planet’s most famous sporting event. –Simon Brew
