Far better than its winter counterpart, this contains five playable events. The Skeet
Shooting is my personal fave.
A lot more sophisticated (and harder) than its Hypersports
counterpart, it has you aiming your twin barrels at the quick-flying skeets from seven
Hurdles, on the other hand, is a bit disappointing. You waggle to make your man run
faster, pressing fire to jump the hurdles, but you blokes doesn't seem to respond very
accurately to your movements (if at all, at times!).
Triple Jump is a bit better, featuring more waggling and a solitary fire-button press
to set the jump angle.
Diving is good fun with your lanky bloke performing loads of
impressive spins and somersaults from the high board.
Finally, Fencing plays well too
but sadly doesn't permit two players to fight each other.
Taking a slightly different angle to most of the events, Summer Olympiad is now
available with Winter Olympiad on MicroValue's budget Olympiad Collection (see last ish).
