Fazit: Ein rundum gelungenes Computerspiel, das die Goldmedaille verdient. Summer Games hat mich spontan begeistert dank seiner hervorragenden Grafik, seines Spielwitzes, seiner exzellent gespielten Nationalhymne und seiner realistischen Geräuschkulisse.

Overall, Summer Games features two great events, three good ones, and one that's just fair. You have the option of playing one, all, or some of these. The running and swimming events allow you to go head-to-head against another person, which always livens up the action. I was disappointed that there's no closing ceremonies, but overall Summer Games is a great sports title.

Summer Games ist ein aufwendiges Programm mit guter Grafik und vielen Gags und Ideen.

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!

I will give the game props for saving all world records (to disk) along with the player's initials. You can configure the game to use two joysticks, but when players are not going head-to-head, you still have to share a joystick, which makes no sense. Summer Games does show its age at times, but if you're looking for some back-to-basics Olympic action, you will love this. Note: An enhanced version of this game was later released for the Atari 7800.

Un petit jeu, donc, à réserver aux nostalgiques mais pour les autres, il y a bien mieux dans la ludothèque de cette bécane.

Für sportliche VCS-Besitzer sind beide Spiele sehr interessant. Alle 14 Disziplinen sind spielenswert. Vor allem mit ein paar Freunden ist Spannung garantiert. Da es in Deutschland kaum neue VCS-Spiele gibt. kommen die beiden Epyx-Module gerade richtig.

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.

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.
