TeleMatch (Aug, 1984)
Unter dem Gesichtspunkt Grafik und Aktion verdient Track & Field unsere Bestnote. Mit der Spielmotivation ist es bei der Bewertung so eine Sache: Wer Decathlon kennt, wird sich kaum motiviert fühlen. Für Video-Olympioniken in spe indes kann ich dieses Programm nur empfehlen!
The Atari Times (Aug 14, 2007)
Despite some sacrifices and a few flaws in it, Track and Field proves to be one of the better Atari 2600 arcade conversions that's available for it. Squeezing a game like that in is a big feat in itself, but they managed to do it nonetheless, complete with the original control scheme that made it popular. Even after all these years, it still remains very challenging.

Track & Field is highly entertaining and even thrilling at times. Difficulty notwithstanding, modern Olympic video games could learn a thing or two from this.

Small details push Track & Field over the top. Although figuring out the mechanic can be a temporary struggle, I came to love how the game gives you some control over the angle of your javelin or your long-jumper. Figuring out the connection between speed and angles is the key to success in this game. And unlike so many 2600 games which demand longer-than-usual time commitments, I feel Track & Field is worth it. Although I have to dock the game some points for being so linear, there’s no doubt in my mind that Track & Field is one on-point sports game for the 2600.
