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.
Commodore User (Dec, 1984)
This really is something special. Summer Games is also the most original of the Games games - as it involves more than simply yanking the living daylights out of your joystick. The graphics really have to be seen to be believed. Eight brilliantly animated events plus an opening ceremony with white doves flying up into the sky and eighteen national flags for you to choose your favourite country.
The success of the game comes from its spectacular graphics.
Happy Computer (Jul, 1984)
Als Fazit kann man eigentlich nur sagen: Ein tolles Spiel. Es ist für jeden etwas dabei. Selbst wenn man nicht gern spielt, macht das Zuschauen Spaß. „Summer Games“ begeistert von der ersten Minute an und wird auch nach längerem Spielen nicht langweilig. Es besteht immer der Anreiz, den Weltrekord, der von jeder Disziplin auf Diskette abgespeichert wird, zu überbieten. Für die überragende Grafik und die wirklich gut gespielten Nationalhymnen, aber auch für nette Kleinigkeiten, wie zum Beispiel den Beifall der Zuschauer bei gelungenen Übungen, verdient „Summer Games“ die Goldmedaille.

„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.
