Back in 1985 when it first appeared, this was the business. Time, though, has been as cruel as ever, and now it looks a little seedy and well past its sell-by date. All the running events require simple waggling of the joystick - a craze amongst gamers during that period that must have seen off more sticks than a bonfire. Certainly, after Daley's Decath, you too feel as though you have been running and jumping and throwing things all day, and if you want unnaturally developed wrists, and huge pulsating muscles between your fingers, then go ahead by all means. For the long jump and the throwing events, it all comes down to achieving a launch at 45' (or as near as possible) and getting as close to the lines as possible. Pretty skilful, huh? No. the game is pretty impressive for a four years old, but has long been superseded by other games (many of them called Daley Thompson's...). For sport sim freaks only.
