You'd probably do best to stick with the real Summer Olympic Games this time around and maybe give this one a rental. Hopefully, the game for the year 2004 will bring back the good from this game, add in more events, and give us a more elaborate production.
I’m not sure there will ever be a perfect game based on the Olympics, and while this is definitely not the one we have all been waiting for, it is still a good game and quite fun to play.
Au final Sydney 2000 semble un peu trop limité en terme de possibilités et de réalisation pour gravir les plus hautes marches du podium. Il ne constitue pas pour autant un mauvais jeu mais semble avoir confondu les priorités au niveau de ses ambitions.
Timing is everything. With that said, the Dreamcast version of Sydney 2000 seems a little rushed to market - obviously to capitalize on the hoopla surrounding the September 2000 event. Surely, if the developers had a couple of extra months, they probably could have improved this version immensely. Still, it remains a decent enough game for button-jamming fanatics despite its flaws.
Sydney 2000 isn't special. It's the kind of game that can pass itself off easily on the impressionable few who still believe in the best of the Olympics...those who believe the measure of honor lies in this "official" game. It doesn't.
Ook al zijn de graphics van de Dreamcast ietsje mooier, er is geen enkele reden om deze game aan te schaffen.
Creative abortion. I give Sydney 2000 one point better than Spirit of Speed only because of the didgeridoo music. I recommend you log onto eBay, buy a NES and a copy of Track & Field (or its excellent sequel). You'll have a lot more fun with a game that is almost a decade and a half old than you will have with this piece of shovelware.

I suspect Sydney 2000 may have been rushed, because this game is a mess.
