Summer Games é uma emocionante competição olímpica para até quatro jogadores (um de cada vez), e toda a sua habilidade no joystick será necessária para ganhar a medalha de ouro. São cinco modalidades ao todo. Vamos a elas!
Player One
Un petit jeu, donc, à réserver aux nostalgiques mais pour les autres, il y a bien mieux dans la ludothèque de cette bécane.
Os maiores atletas da natação, saltos ornamentais, ginástica e atletismo estão reunidos para participar dos Jogos Olímpicos. Ao todo são oito países participando. Você pode praticar antes do campeonato, para chegar numa boa forma física. Para isto basta selecionar a opção "Mode Select". Se terminar em primeiro lugar numa prova, você ganha uma medalha de outro, além de cinco pontos. O segundo lugar garante uma medalha de prata e três pontos; e o terceiro lugar, uma medalha de bronze e um ponto. Você pode escolher que país quer representar.

I'm a huge fan of California Games, and I had high hopes for the rest of the Games series. However, World Games was just average, and things have taken a turn for the worse with Summer Games - it's terrible. The graphics are small and have little detail, and the backdrops are bland beyond belief - surely there was scope for some amazing animation here. The gameplay is very dull, most events requiring simple button-bashing to succeed, and those that don't are easily mastered. Even if you're a big fan of sports simulations, you'll more than likely find this very disappointing.
Power Play
Als Summer Games vor sechs Jahren auf dem C 64 herauskam, war es ein fantastisches Computerspiel. Nach den Maßstäben von 1990 ist die Bildschirm-Olympiade immer noch ganz gut, wirkt aber ein wenig angestaubt. Üblerweise sieht die Grafik der neuen Sega-Umsetzung wesentlich schlechter aus als die der alten Commodore-Version. Im Prinzip spricht nichts dagegen, Computerspiel-Klassiker fürs Master System umzusetzen, aber bei Summer Games wurde zu viel geschlampt. Fürs gleiche Geld erhaltet Ihr die Sega-Version von "California Games", die grafisch und spielerisch zwei Klassen besser ist.
