Reviews and Problems with New International Track and Field
Showing 1-8 of 8
Be A Track and Field STAR - a voyeurism of sorts for those who didnt have the chance to try them ...love the diving.
14 January 2012
Summary: Love this cute little offering. Great intro into the various aspects and dynamics of the almost complete host of T&F sports PLUS DIVING! (now what has that got to do with T&F? ... I suppose you could say it falls under "track") Cute simulation. Love the gameplay. Cute avatars for role playing the athlete.
Summary: I had fond memories of the old classic and was led to beleive that I could enjoy the fun all over again, but the controls aren't implemented well at all which makes success a bonus and failure the norm. Nothing like the original where success was the norm and perfect execution was the bonus. Waste of money on an undelivered promise of fun. Avoid.
Summary: This is a must have for any nds owner. Not only it is fun to play alone but it is a great party game as well. I will put it number 2 after Mario Kart. Just make sure you have a screen protector...and do not play it everyday or your arm will hurt. You can do multiplayer with one cartridge only but it is quite slow to load. I really think it is worth buying the game for the whole family. I have two kids and we each play the game on our own and then connect.
Summary: I just started playing this game so I have not even unlocked all the characters or events yet, but from what I have seen so far this game is a lot of fun. You choose different characters to compete in four events in one group of events like track and field or swimming. So far the only thing I don't like about this game is that for some of the events you have to move the stylus very fast along a bar and if you don't move it fast enough your character does not build up...
The original international track and field on the DS
15 February 2009
Excerpt: I remember playing International Track and Field back in 1999 on the original Sony Playstation. Playing this in single player mode was boring it was a game to be played with mates and we used to enjoy nothing more than going head to head across the wide range of athletics events available from the 100m sprint to the hammer throw. I remember the abuse the control pads took whilst playing this game.
Pros: Loads of events to master, great graphics and great fun
Cons: Some of the games are a bit hard to master, possibility of ruining the touch screen
Excerpt: xxABOUTTHEGAMExx This is a very simple but Fabulous game, it has numerous games on it that have yet to be unlocked. It is separated into levels with Olympic games that get harder and harder on each level. You have to reach a certain standard to unlock new games. There are around eight different characters who are good at different games. Some are strong, some fast , have the ability to jump higher and swimming.
Excerpt: It may have been specifically developed for the nintendo DS, but by speciffically developed do they mean taken practically every element from mario and sonic at the olympics. To call blatent plagerism may be a little bit too harsh, it is fair that they made it alot worse. They did change some of the controls during events, to make them less fun and more complicated on the control set up.
Pros: - its proberbly going to be pretty cheap soon
