Not content with making us play through the 2008 Olympic Games as an Italian American plumber and a blue spiky hedgehog with Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games, our good friends at Sega are giving us more athletic action for our money. Beijing 2008 is a more realistic video game portrayal of the ancient sporting games, no green dinosaurs or foxes with two tails will be found here. This time around you will be able to represent your own country in an attempt to win gold medals in all the classic events. PC, 360 and PS3 owners don’t have long to wait until the June Beijing 2008 release date. Just enough time to get my spandex running gear out!
