Description of The Games: Summer Challenge

The Games: Summer Challenge is a worthy sequel to MindSpan/Accolade's classic Winter Challenge, this time based on Summer Olympics games.

Similar to its predecessor, Summer Challenge lets you compete in 8 different events, each of which you can practice for as long as you like before the tournament. Summer Challenge is based on the same engine as Winter Challenge and designed by the same team, so you can expect the same ease of use, excellent graphics, and fun music. The events are archery, equestrian, kayaking (my favorite), 400m hurdles, pole vault, high jump, javelin, and cycling. You enter the tournament with up to 10 friends, or go solo against the computer.

I find that the game is a bit easier and more repetitive than Winter Challenge in terms of actual gameplay: smacking the ENTER key repeatedly is usually enough to win most events. Hand-eye coordination is still key, but not as crucial as your finger reflexes. Still, Summer Challenge is a lot of fun, especially in multiplayer mode.

Highly recommended, especially if you like Winter Challenge or Epyx sports series.
