Konami, bless 'em, know a thing or two about value for money. Sheer gameplay is the key to their continued success. It seems that no matter what the title, from the massively popular ISS series to the party madness that is Bishi Bashi Special, Konami games are about content rather than style. This is not a criticism: International Track And Field 2 has the requisite playability and addictiveness we have come to expect from the kings of the arcade conversion, this particular adaptation looking a little less arcade-y than most.

No true sportsman, armchair brand or the real thing, can resist a challenge. Assembled here are eleven muscle-cramping events guaranteed to bring out the athlete in you and make you break sweat. Or at least give you the severest case of PlayStation Thumb ever. So if you are the type of person who shudders at the thought of school sports days, or you had to suffer cruel taunts about your running style at the hands of your peers, here's your chance to get your own back. Manual dexterity is the order of the day as you run, jump, grunt and groan your way through events such as discus, high jump, swimming and the pole vault. The control method is as old as the hills: bash those buttons as fast as you can, and try to time your jumps correctly and angle your pitches in the appropriate disciplines. Simple but effective and certainly addictive, International Track And Field 2 is ideal fare for all you housebound athletes out there.
