  1. Faithful port from the original arcade version that will have you in stitches while competing against your on or offline buddies.
  2. Untainted by the passing of time, and still as mindlessly entertaining as it was back in the day. Sure, Hyper Sports improved on the formula a little, and Epyx went off and took the idea to dizzy heights not long after that, but in essence this is one of those few occasions when a game concept emerged fully formed from the beginning.
  3. This is one of the few XBLA games that I’ve continued to play after the first week. But for most people, once you’ve figured out the patterns to win there isn’t a challenge.
  4. Pleasure and pain come together at last. [Aug 2007, p.102]
  5. For three quid, though, you could do a lot worse. [Issue#25, p.118]
  6. Track & Field holds up fairly well and makes for some good, albeit short-term, fun.
  7. This limping Track & Field deserves no medals, let alone any of your Microsoft Points. [July 2007, p.81]
