Presenting a broader spectrum of events than the original Track & Field, Track & Field II for the NES brings players a variety of summer Olympics events. This time around, however, the emphasis is on timing rather than the original Track & Field's fast-and-furious button punching frenzy. Patience and timing will help players more than slamming the A and B buttons as fast as they can. A dozen widely varied events are offered: fencing, triple jump, freestyle swimming, high dive, clay pigeon shooting, hammer throw, Tae Kwon Do, pole vault, canoeing, archery, hurdles, and the horizontal bar. Some of these also appeared in Hyper Sports, the arcade sequel to Track & Field. All of them require different skills, especially with the high dive and shooting events. With its interesting mix of sports, smooth control and excellent graphics, Track & Field II is still one of the better Olympics games out there. ~ Earl Green, All Game Guide
