 Excellent game!

Everything comes together nicely in this game. The graphics are bold and run very smoothly. The sound effects are accurate and the commentators are very funny - on purpose. Not funny because they're badly done. The controls are spot on too. Even on similar disciplines like bobsleigh, luge and skeleton, there are a couple of little differences in motion controls that separate them.

Most fun would be the figure skating, which is a rythm action game where the jumps depend on your accuracy. And the cross country skiing is very good too. You hold the remote and nunchuck flat and move them forward in turn to ski and lower them to glide, tliting to steer. It's hard work for three laps but you get a rest when there's a hill!

Usually you get a few poor games in a collection like this but all the games here are top quality. Full marks. Very highly recommended!!!

 superb winter gaming

this is one of the best winter sports games i have ever played, teh graphics are sharp, and the gameplay is spot on, not the easiest to pick up to start with but as soon as you get into it, its very good, downhill slalom is amazing, energetic but very fun.

 Woohoo!! Curling rocks!!

All the games on winter sports are great even the more challenging games like super G, and the Luge and Skeleton are very exciting and intense. The controls scheme is very realistic, so when you're cross country Skiing you have to do the right motions and if you try and go too fast too soon you will quickly run out steam,Grrreat.

Its lots of fun so don't hesitate buy it now.............whooosh.

 Very good Wii controls - Much better than Sonic Olympics

Very few people mention the controls of the Wii versus other games, and this is why we bought the console isnt it!?

In Wii Winter Sports the controls are as I would put it, pretty much spot on, it doesnt punish you for moving the controller too fast and the skill is more in your physical prowess over you ability to control the game. Mario Olympics has tedious controls like Wii Golf where if you move the controller too fast your ball will go hurtling off at random. Very annoying.

The games in Wii Winter Sports are a great mix, Downhill skiing is fantastic fun and requires real skill. Ski jumping is very tough and is difficult to master.

Basically, if you are someone that likes an easy game and is obsessed with winning then this is not for you. The beauty of this game is that it will challenge you like an OldSkool game would (remember Elite !)

Definatly one for multiplayer though..

 Fantastic MULTIPLAYER game

I was pretty shocked to read some of the reviews of this game, so thought id add my two penneth.

"its boring if you play on your own"- Well yes, it may well be, but these sort of games are created for those nights when you have all your mates round and you've had a few drinks.

"its too hard" Rubbish. Yes the skiing is hard to master, and the ski jumping is challenging, but its better to be too hard than too easy. 4 of us picked up the controls, set it on beginner, and all 4 of us had the hang of it enough to have a great game within our 2nd attempts at worst.

"the controls are unresponsive" I dont agree. On the Bobsleigh, Luge and Skelton I would say they are spot on. On the ski jump you need to be very delicate, as you do with the skiing events.

To summarise, I would say this game is a perfect multiplayer game. If you and some friends play this one evening, I can guarantee you will enjoy it. In fact I would go further and say you will be rolling around laughing at the sight of your friends pumping away furiously during the speed skating, and will cry with delight when you land your first ever double toe loop in the figure skating!!
