Your Commodore (Jan, 1985)
The graphics in this game are of a very high standard with detailed high resolution backdrops and excellently animated sprites. Overall this is an excellent program and is probably the best 'Olympic' program available.
Home Computing Weekly (Nov 20, 1984)
This is streets ahead of the others in graphics, animation, realism and originality. It is however rather overpriced.
TeleMatch (Aug, 1984)
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.
Info (Sep, 1984)
Summer Games adds some dimension to the Olympic games theme. The element of strategy is incorporated into 4 of the 8 events in a limited way. A reserve energy meter makes you pace your relay runner. The gymnasts can earn more points by opting for a harder routine. Still, there is some wiggling and joybutton tapping used to propel athletes along. The figures are drawn with higher resolution, but are not "Incredible" as Epyx claims. A floating sight represents the shotgun in skeet shooting, and divers seem to go off the screen, not into the pool.
The success of the game comes from its spectacular graphics.
Happy Computer (Aug, 1984)
An Besonderheiten mangelt es den „HesGames“ also nicht. Die „Summer Games“ aber bieten mehr Disziplinen, sind etwas origineller und bei ihnen können gleich acht („HesGames“ sechs) Spieler teilnehmen. So unterliegt ein sehr gutes Spiel einem noch besseren, wobei man Sportspiel-Fans ruhigen Gewissens beide Olympiaden empfehlen kann.
64'er (Jul, 1984)
„Summer Games“ ist eine rundum gelungene Heim-Olympiade, die mich spontan begeistert hat. Eine Diskette (Preis: zirka 109 Mark), die man auch nach vielen Stunden gerne wieder spielt.
