Beijing 2008 - The Official Video Game of the Olympic Games: Gymnastics events.
Appearing on the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, the PLAYSTATION 3 computer entertainment system and PC, Beijing 2008 delivers a host of Gymnastics events.
The Gymnastics events in Beijing 2008 are split up into male and female events. One of the three female events is the Uneven Bars, where the player uses both analogue sticks to mimic the movement of the athlete. In the Floor Exercise, the player uses the four buttons of the controller to guide the player to the rhythm of the music. The last of the female events is the Balance Beam, in which the player needs to keep the athlete on the beam while pressing the 4 buttons corresponding to the colour on the beam to make the athlete move.
The first of three Gymnastics Events are the Parallel Bars, in which the player uses the analogue sticks and buttons to complete the athlete’s routine. In the Vault, players need to build up speed with their lower buttons, and use the analogue trigger to launch them off the board over the horse, while turning the analogue sticks will balance the landing. The final male event is the Rings, in which you follow the arm movement of the athlete with both your analogue sticks, while you make sure the landing is stable by pressing a button combination that shows on-screen.Beijing 2008 was released globally on June 28th for the Xbox 360, PLAYSTATION 3 computer entertainment system. The PC version will be released 11th July.
