Track and Field Fun for All
14 February 2004
Excerpt: "The legend of Track and Field games where can I possibly start? Track and Field is one of the games you just want to play over and over again in multiplayer mode. The idea for nearly all of the ten events is simple, tap two of the buttons as fast as you can while pressing one of the remaining buttons to either, duck for the line or set the angle of the jump. There are several tactics players can do, to, shall we say, aid in pressing the buttons ...
Excerpt: "after upgrading from psone to ps2 i also needed an upgrade from track and field 2000 and with competition in athletics games very limited i bought this second hand for 15 pounds, similair in its button bashing techniques , a refreshing change were the rythmic gymnastics which is also compatible with the dance mat and clay pigeon shooting . events are good but very limited in number making longetivity short other events include 100m long jump javelin ...
Excerpt: "Konami have been making track and field games for years and have always had mixed results. I believe this is due to one simple fact, some people love these games and some people hate them. The button basher has been a regular release since it was born in the arcades in the early 80's it has taken many forms and has appeared on various formats, this offering is for the PS2. ESPN International Track and Field (ITF) is not in essence a terrible ...
Pros: Good fun to play with friends .
Cons: Seriously lacking in single player options .
ESPN International Track and Field (PS2): The Best Track and Field Game Ever?
26 September 2001
Summary: I am a big fan of the track and field genre of games, ever since I first played one on a cheesy monochrome computer in elementary school. I spent many fine Sunday afternoons destroying fragile joysticks on Activision's Decathlon for the Atari 2600, and many of the Saturday nights of my teen years were spent in a dark arcade getting blisters on the trackball of Konami's Track and Field (which, by the way, you can still play on your home computer if you can find a copy of...
Pros: Great group activity, excellent motion capture
Cons: Poor facial graphics, would like more customization
Excerpt: "Having bought a Playstation 2 and with the original Track and Field on Playstation, I decided to go for this game. The big attraction to me was the multiplayer option, so with the game came the added expense of a multitap. However, I have found this game to be really enjoyable - you can spend hours trying to beat records with your friends. Although 1 player it can be said that entertainment wil not be sustained over a long period of time, multi player ...
Excerpt: "I bought this game in good faith, my God I am mighty please i only got it second hand. This game is truly awful whatever mistakes you may make in your life do not make this one of them. I thought that some develops may of been made in athletic games. How wrong could i be, this sadly is one of the old button bashing games which requires very little skill. the graphics I am willing to accept are of a resonable quality. why do you need good graphics ...
Pros: There are no advantages but if you have a wobbly table this may do the job .
Cons: Well where do i start . The camera angles are diffcult and uncomortable to say the least . The event selection is very poor . This game does not look made more thrown together .
Summary: I recently rented out this game, and as I expected I had pretty much finished it after a few hours. Like all the other Track and Field games it is best played with 3 friends, and the solo mode offers little challenge. There are 10 events in total, including the classic button-bashing 100m dash and new events like trap shooting and rhythmic gymnastics. The new events offer more variation, but at the end of the day all the events can be mastered within a day or so.
Excerpt: "...previous games on other formats ESPN is going to struggle to hold your attention - this was exactly what happened. OK some of the player animations are very good and I suppose the graphics are better than those in Sydney 2000 (and the sky detail is good) I actually think that Sydney 2000 is by far the better game. The camera angles are all wrong and it's practically impossible to do compete and succeed in the javelin event, as there is a large ...
Excerpt: International Track & Field è il ritorno di un vecchio classico, o forse sarebbe meglio parlare di una novità, almeno per la PS2 e che ha avuto un grande successo pur non avendo goduto di una grande pubblicità. Strategie di marketing a par ...
Excerpt: A mi solo me salen 10 pruebas. ¿podria ser alguien tan amable de infomarme como consigo las que me faltan? Como consejo dire que se pueden conseguir mejores resultados utilizando ciertas ayudas para poder golpear los 2 botones a la vez: Un boligrafo, un mechero, etc. Ya sabemos que no es muy ortodoxo y que roza los limites de la legalidad pero que tendriamos que decir de los atletas americanos que iban hasta las cejas y ahora se esta descubriendo todo?
