Beijing 2008 for PlayStation 3
One of the most extravagant sports events in recent history, the Beijing Olympics, can now be relieved, with every exciting photo finish and thrill of every hundredth of every second recaptured in this next generation video game experience. Choose from a roster of 10 sports, including Athletics, Aquatics, Gymnastics, Cycling, and many, many more, across 38 official events, with each sport having its own control scheme that requires your mastery. The action is split across two game modes; Career mode, that allows you to customise your team and draw up an everyday schedule for a more true to life experience; and Competition mode, that sees you challenging three opponents in many one-off events. You can opt to represent any of the competing countries you’d like, and additional exhibition events and time challenges add a bit of replay value to the package, with the leader boards acting as that ever present incentive to continually one up yourself and do better. It might not be quite like being there, but Beijing Olympics 2008 offers the next best thing.
