4.0 out of 5 stars The Winter Games, now on Wii! December 18, 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The first Winter Sports title on the Nintendo Wii is a very solid one, especially at the budget price.

The presentation is very solid. The game runs with a widescreen mode, has smooth graphics, and good sound. In addition to the in-game music, there are two witty European commentators that provide some interesting and funny banter. There is a very neat opening ceremony, and medal ceremonies complete with national anthems. Load times are minimal, and bugs are non present.

There are over fifteen events in nearly every Winter Olympic discipline. There are two varieties of Speed Skating, several varieties of Skiing, Skeleton, Luge, Bobsleigh, Figure Skating, and Curling. The majority of the events controls very well and provides intelligent and innovative uses of the Wii remote and Nunchuck. With the sliding sports, for example, while on the track you hold the remote in the Steering Wheel fashion. With Figure Skating, you use the remote and Nunchuck like in a rhythm game, very similar to the method used in the Wii version of "Dancing With the Stars." Sadly, the controls for Curling seem to be broken or, at the least, extremely difficult to use. But, all of the other events control very well.

The game has a skill-building career mode, 4-player multiplayer, single event play and traditional tournament modes. Overall, for the price, it's a very solid package that's enjoyable in both single and multiplayer modes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Winter Sports is a BLAST!! December 27, 2007
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
We are relatively new to the Wii so I can't compare it to all of the games out there, but I can say that so far it is a blast for our family and a clear favorite for both the adults and kids. We have played the speed skating, downhill skiing and the luge games and are already addicted.

The games vary in difficulty and in types of actions--we are still trying to make it down the slopes without wiping out multiple times but the speed skating is fairly easy just a lot of action in the arms. We are enjoying the variety and we still have many games to explore.

I should also add that so far all of the games have a two-player option with a split screen so you are competing against each other. You can see your opponent whiz by or vice versa as you are racing.

The realistic/human-like players are nice too. This is not cartoony like Mario but has more life-like graphics. You can't select your player's looks but you can choose the country you are competing for.

Other notes:
Music: good/competition-type music. Fun to play to.

Sound and graphics: nice and realistic. I especially like the skiing sounds. It makes you feel like you are really on the slopes without the cold. Visually, it is realistic too because there are effects like snow sprays that sometimes partially obscure your ability to see what is ahead, etc. Oh, and the luge is a trip. You feel like you are traveling VERY fast. Perhaps it isn't the real thing but it is a fun substitute.

Age level: either a very coordinated 5-8 or 8 and older (might be tough for the little ones).

I am hoping they will do a summer games version next. I would definitely purchase this again in a heartbeat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprising Winner of a Title January 11, 2008
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I took a chance when I saw some of the reviews here. Thanks everyone! This is a surprising winner. Terrific graphics, challenging gameplay (different difficulty levels) and especially the reasonable price, make this a wonderful extension of the wii sports/mario&sonic olympics type games.

So far we have focused on a few of the events, though we have looked at all of them. The speedskating was the first one we tried. It was great for my 6 yr old. He wouldn't stop playing. It is challenging to keep the meters at the optimal levels even on the easier difficulty.

The ski jumping took a while to get the right feel of the controls to time the take off and navigate steadily through the air to a good landing. The controllers were ultra-responsive so you need to have very good touch.

My favorite was the bobsled so far. Took a run to get the hang of it, but it's more like a racing game where you try to find the right groove except for the start which is different from what I expected (and not easy ) You have to move your controller in a circular motion to build speed/power. Still haven been able to get the best start. The graphics going down the track are a blast. You even can see the lights showing the optimal location (at least in the easier mode), but it's not exactly easy to keep the sled there.

We can't wait to open the alternate venues too for the events. This game so far seems to be very well thought out and put together. It's already worth the money and everything else is gravy. This is a great addition to the game library and fun for all ages. The surprising thing is even my wife enjoyed it and didn't want to give up her controller(s).

4.0 out of 5 stars worth the price December 20, 2007
By M. Reed
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
For once, it seems Conspiracy has done something worthwhile. Conspiracy is the publisher for this game, known to create the most painfully bad experiences on the Wii to date (seriously, check reviews of their other games). But, this game is surprising well designed and thought out. The graphics are actually up to par with the other Wii games on the market. The whole game itself iplays like Mario and Sonic at the Olympics, were you have the opportunity to do several games in sequence, or just pick one at a time. The controls are much more intuitive, so therefore the experience is more engaging and overall better. The individual events can actually take some time to complete, which makes the game alot more playable. For 30 dollars, this game is a steal.

This game takes a lot of practice to get used to the controls. In skiing, you will crash a lot until you figure out how to turn through the gates. Read more

Bought this hoping it was like a game we had tried before. Really not much interaction on your part. Disappointing. But the price was right so not a huge loss.
