| Fila Decathlon is the much anticipated sports extravaganza for the Gameboy Advance. The game itself contains 10 different events such as the 100metre sprint, hurdles, high jump, javelin and pole vault. Fila Decathlon offers five different modes of gameplay that include single event, practice, regional championship, national
championship and Olympic tournament.
In the old days when dinosaurs still roamed the world, the arcades were filled with various sport games such as Hyper Olympics and Summer Games.
In these days, the Commodore 64 roamed the earth and many joysticks were broken because of games like this. These games were button mashers, the
faster you hit the button, the better your athlete would perform. This is the same principle behind Fila Decathlon. If you're not use to playing games like this, you may get some sore fingers after a few races. But what better way to perform some GBA exercise?
The graphics of Fila Decathlon really show just what this little
machine of goodness can do. All characters are well animated and
have different looks and uniforms. The stadiums have a true 3D feel to them and you can even see the advertising around the stadium with "Fila" and "THQ" being plastered everywhere. The crowd backgrounds look nice and are extremely colourful.
Soundwise the game does leave a bit to be desired but considering the subject, what sounds could really be incorporated into the game? Grunting? Basic voice samples are present throughout the game such as "on your marks" and other race related comments.
