Variety is not the game's strong suit. The true depth of WCTM lies in discovering the best cheating strategy. Drumming on the pad with your fist may seem like a good idea, but it'll barely get you past Horse.

World Class Track Meet, like Duck Hunt before it, is a moderately entertaining tech demo designed to showcase a peripheral. The original intent of the Family Fun Fitness Pad/Power Pad was to help chubby kids lose weight (or slim adults like myself get in shape). In that regard, World Class will do the trick if you play it consistently. But if you’re looking for a fuller experience with the Power Pad that involves more than running in place, check out Athletic World. The events have more variety, and you’ll still be out of breath by the time you’re finished.

Stadium Events is unlikely to be listed in anyone's list of top NES games but the Power Pad is a key feature in making the experience fun. The single player mode is shallow but it really comes alive with a group of people huddling around the mat until they collapse in a heap!

Uff! Ich sollte abends etwas mehr joggen. Nach drei Vierkämpfen war ich zu erschöpft, um meinen hart erkämpften Sieg zu bejubeln. Wenn man mehrere Spielpartner zur Hand hat, dann sorgt “Stadium Events“ prima für Stimmung und gute Laune. Alleine dient es zwar zur Körperertüchtigung, aber das ist unter freiem Himmel doch etwas sinnvoller. Außerdem kapiere ich nicht, warum Bandai lasche vier Disziplinen (von denen sich jeweils zwei ziemlich ähneln) auf das Modul gepackt hat. So hält sich die Abwechslung doch ziemlich in Grenzen. Außerdem mutet die Grafik etwas steinzeitlich an.
It’s almost purely a Family Fun Fitness Pad/Power Pad tech demo, and the experience is about as deep as a puddle.
