North America Retail Box ArtEvery four years the Olympic games come and go, and every four years developers and publishers alike produce computer games based around these games. The good thing for gamers is that with every four year the games get better. Sydney 2000 by Eidos, is based on this age-old principle. With 12 Olympic events, 32 countries represented whilst providing a number of gaming options ranging from Classic Arcade mode to a career-based Olympic mode, this is a far cry from the days of Daley Thompson's Decathlon. As you would expect, graphically the game has improved ten-fold on the game titles that were present at the last Olympics. The races now actually look different from each other, all with their very own individual style. Although the graphics have improved, the gameplay is still the same tested and tried approach that comes with every track and field game. This normally involves you bashing the hell out of the keyboard or wiggling the joystick backwards and forwards in a mad frenzy in an attempt to get your runner, swimmer or even cyclist, around the track in a suitable time. But do not fear, for not all the events are based on this format. Featured are the 100m Sprint, 110m Hurdles, Hammer, Javelin, Triple Jump, 100m Freestyle Swimming, Olympic Sprint cycling, Skeet Shooting, Super Heavyweight Lifting, 10m Platform Diving and Kayak K1 Slalom to challenge you on both precision as well as speed.--Stuart Miles
