Hyper Sports

More sporting laughs from Ocean's cheapie label, and another game that doesn't look quite as fab as it did four years ago, when it originally came out. At least there's a bit of variety, though there's no running or throwing, just swimming, skeet shooting (oi! you've just shot me skeet!), long horse, archery, triple jump and weightlifting. But surprise, surprise - all of these involve the dreaded joystick-waggling at some point, and indeed swimming and weightlifting offer nothing else.

These days sports sims actually call for a little skill - brute strength is no longer enough. But if you're an enormous lunk with no manual dexterity to speak of, Hyper Sports is worth a punt.
