I never was a great waggler (my mum always told me too much waggling made you go blind) but I must admit that Daley Thompson's Olympic Challenge had me playing for, ooh, at least five minutes. Why? Well, luckily this one's far better than the previous Daley re-release efforts of late. First of all, he now looks and moves more like the Big D than the crappy little blokey did in Decathalon and Super Test, and secondly there's the welcome addition of a training bit (yet more waggling as our Day weight-lifts, squats and sit-ups in preparation for the big event itself). The actual decath comprises the same old 100, 400 and 1,500 metre sprints, hurdles, high- and long-jumps, shot-putting, pole-vaulting and discus- and javelin-throwing as In DT's Decath, but the graphics are so different, with loads of angles and things, that I ended up having an absolutely whizzer time. It really is jolly clever and exciting - a pretty big leap forward actually (ho ho), and guaranteed to have you waggling until your joystick curls up and dies.
Just 736 more sit-ups to go, Daley me old mate, and you can have that bottle of Lucozade up at the top of the screen.
