Replete with the official licence and a comprehensive selection of events, SonyâTMs Olympic tie-in Athens 2004 also remembers to bring plenty of entertainment along with it. In many ways harking back to the button-bashing titles of old, Athens 2004 features over two dozen events, each of which requires a slightly differing discipline to succeed in. The sprints still require you to hit alternate buttons as fast as you possibly can, of course, whilst others also require you to attain a fast speed, but add a timing element too. Then there are events such as the archery, and these test skill rather than speed. An added innovation is the ability to use your dance mat on certain events, and itâTMs a feature that genuinely works very well--much to the amusement of other players in multi-player mode, of course! Now whilst some events work better than others, thereâTMs little doubt that most gamers are going to find something they can warm to here. With a wide selection of game modes and the comprehensive selection of events, thereâTMs plenty of entertainment for your money. Each of the events are easy to get to grips with, and some are harder to master than others. Crucially, though, there are few that wonâTMt entertain you on some level. Topped off with quality presentation and some strong multimedia work, Athens 2004 is something of a triumph, then. It comes into its own when more than one player takes part, but even without, itâTMs an enjoyable, very good value for money game, and a worthy tie-in to the planetâTMs most famous sporting event. --Simon Brew

...The city of Athens, Georgia, USA, is one of those eclectic university towns scattered all the way across the country. If you're an American and a seasoned college student, you know all about what that means - an infinite variety of bars, pubs, theatres and crack houses. And, of course, a vast number of students to take advantage of whichever of these vices may take their fancy. In this particular...

Review of Athens
Advantages: Spectacular views, amazing structures, useful staff Disadvantages: None for me
...I've literally just got back from a trip to Athens with a group of other students who were also studying Ancient History and Ciivlisations with me, including my boyfriend luckily. As such I thought I would review different aspects of Athens and the goods I bought, and what better place to start then Athens' most famous tourist destination, the Acropolis.
The word Acropolis means roughly peak...
Advantages: Great location, clean rooms, free wifi, lovely staff, good view of the Acropolis. Disadvantages: Some may not like the neighbourhood.
...I recently (June 2011) went on holiday with some friends. We were on a budget, but most of us, including me, were not willing to stay at anything less than a 3 star hotel. We knew we wouldn't be in our rooms for long, but we still wanted a clean room and a clean bathroom. I was responsible for booking hotels and after doing a lot of research, I booked the Apollo Hotel in Athens for 2 nights. This...
