I recently bought Athens 2004 and thought it was fantastic, the gymnastics events looks very realistic, and the fact that you can use the dance mat makes the game even better. This is a perfect game for you to invite your friends over to play! There are loads of events that you have to master, and try to become a gold medalist! The button pushing isn't for the weak fingered, but it's great to watch your friends jumping up and down on the dance mat trying to finish the 100 meters. This game is for the competitive people who want to win and prove to their friends that they are the best! I would recommend this game!

Overall I love this game. At first I was like this sucks because the controlls are so screwed up, but it's so addicting you play it anyways. After a few days or weeks of playing, I got really good at the confusing controlls and now I'm always playing this game. This game is constantly challenging, so it never really gets old. There are a lot of categories to choose from so if you just hate a few of the games, you can pick other ones. I would definatly recommend this game if you wanna have fun.

I love this game. I have it and play it every chance I get. It would be nice with the improvements for the next Track and Field game to have the 100 and 400 relay races. Or have the competition just like the olympics with heats, semi finals, and finals. However the game is fantastic.

Athens 2004 is an awesome sports game and a realistic version of the Olympics. I was really impressed with the number of events in the game. As well as the running and hurdles, you can swim, do gymnastics, shoot on the archery range, and even ride a horse! The controls are easy to use. As other reviewers have stated, it is a great party game for you and your friends - really cool with multitap and dance mat!

I liked this game because It has loads of events, with diffent levels of controls. The controls take time to get use to but once you get into it, you end up spending ages trying to beat your own world record. The shooting and the archery are the best events.

Athens 2004 is a real good games, I remember when it first came out.. I wasn't expected that much improvement from the last game (ESPN Track and Field).

The game have a wide range of events and it's enjoyable. Competision is always tight, the more you break the records the tougher the competiters get. BUY THIS GAME!!! this would be the best Athletics game until/if they come out with one in late 2008/ early 2009. I hope they improve into having real athletes on it by names and things, that would be tight!!

Track and Field is my heart. I've been sprinting the 100m, 200m, sometimes the 400m and did the Long Jump/Triple Jump as field events ever since I was around 8yrs old. Competed in track and field games such as Cafifta, and other island meets (I'm from the Caribbean) I always loved the sport.

I won over 60 medals (36 of them are gold) but all that ended when I was 18yrs old before a track meet. Got into incident that caused me a knee injury but I'm working my way back to running again and competing.

While this title is several years old, it is still a very fun PS2 title. My wife and I rented this for the family and had a blast. While there are many games that require you to hammer buttons, there are also games like archery, the 1500k, pole vauly, gymnastics, horse jumping, shot put (and many more)that require a lot of skill. We found most of the games addictive. Also, with practice you could get better. Archery was awesome! If you are looking for a cheap game that many in your family would like, I recommend this title. We bought it after renting.

Some have given this game negative reviews because some events (like swimming and the 400 meter) require you to tap for over a minute. No one can possibly do this and enjoy it. But, and I say BUT, there are too many good events on this title that DO NOT require you to tap for you to pass on it. Ignore the "tappers", you will have a blast with the rest.

I've pretty much just played sports games my entire life. I got caught up in the Olympic fever and decided I wanted to have a game for my PS2 (yes, still a PS2-er) that was Olympic-level. This wasn't quite what I expected. Don't get me wrong, this isn't a bad game, it's just not what I was expecting. The furious button pushing was a bit of a problem, since my game-worn fingers tend to give out after pushing for more than a minute straight. I like it, but it's not brilliant.
