This game is very common and very cheap. It's a fun game, even if only for a limited time.
Just Games Retro
Overall, the game’s an excellent example of classic NES gameplay. It’s easy to pick up, totally devoid of story, and a “high score” is your primary goal. It’s challenging on its own, a blast with friends, and the kind of addictive arcade gameplay that’s just plain fun. I played some later track and field games leading up to this, and I feel like in their rush to be more complex simulations, they forgot the simplicity that makes this game shine.
So despite coming up slightly short in the 8-bit Olympics, Track & Field is still a decent multi-sports title and succeeds as an arcade port as well. Komani did a commendable job in bringing the arcade classic to the NES and fans of the original will feel at home here. Even though Gold Medal Challenge does offer a better Olympic experience, if you just want simple arcade action on the track, then Track & Field still deserves a spot on your medal podium.
Insomma, mamma Konami ha svolto sicuramente un ottimo lavoro. Con qualche accorgimento a livello sonoro e sul multiplayer il mio giudizio sarebbe stato più elevato, ma considerando il periodo ci si può ritenere soddisfatti.
The Video Game Critic
Most events are terrific but the difficult is uneven, and I found games like skeet shoot and high jump to be excessively difficult to qualify for. Another issue is the obvious lack of playing modes, probably due to the game's arcade origins. You basically keep playing events until you fail to qualify, at which time your game ends abruptly. Upon completing a round, you advance to the next with a higher difficulty. Track and Field is a bit simplistic compared to latter day track and field games, but in terms of sheer fun, it's hard to beat.
