The Video Game Critic
Like any good video game, the button-mashing controls are easy to learn but tough to master, and the 3D visuals are smooth and lifelike. Record-setting performances can be saved to memory cards and replayed. International Track and Field is challenging when played solo, but it's an absolute riot with a few friends.
You don't have to be a fan of the Olympics to get a kick out of Track and Field. The controls are simple and the game is challenging enough to separate the pretenders from the winners.
Pretty poor as a single player game, but great when played with friends.
A good solid Track & Field game from Konami. And yet, there it sits on my shelf waiting for a friend to arrive...
The graphics, to begin with, are awesome. The polygon characters, coupled with the perfectly done arenas of competition, are breathtaking. Each competition is set up slightly different, so it's impossible to become a master of every event. And with up to four competitors going at it at any given time, this game can be a blast.
All Game Guide
The game needs more intense computer competition, an ability to qualify for medals, and more diverse events such as archery or high diving. It would have been nice to create an athlete with various ability points that you could build up during the course of competition. As it stands, International Track & Field is the perfect diversion if you have a group of people over and want to have some fun. After they leave, however, it will be tossed aside quicker than a spinning discus.
