More sporting laffs 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, surpirse - all of these involve the dread 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.
