The most recent snowy sports sim is a mildly playable romp through eight events. There
three similar, downward-scrolling skiing events; Downhill, Ski Challenge (two-player
head-to-head) and Slalom.
A 3-D view is utilised for both Luge and Bobsleigh, with accurate steering needed to
stay in the tortuous track.
Another 3-D view is used for Speed Skating and Bale Jumping (I've done a bit of that!).
Both involve left/right movement in time with you man's skates, so at least you don't get
The other event is a bit of an odd 'un. Skidoo has you negotiating a multidirectionally
scrolling maze-like track. It plays as well as it looks - bleurgh!
Other than this hiccup, Winter Super Sports is a pretty sound package, though some of the
events are very similar.
None of them are as playable as those in Winter Games, but Ian seems to like the game
a lot - so if you're a bit like him (Gawd help you!) you'll probably enjoy it!
