Excerpt: One of the big draws of digital distribution is that it can offer small and fun experiences on the cheap. In an age where console games cost around $60 and micro-transactions are spreading like the plague, gamers can take solace in knowing that there are viable alternatives. However, Go Sports Ski is not one of them, as it misses the “fun experience” part completely.
Excerpt: There's a dearth of snow sports games on the PlayStation 3, specifically skiing games. In fact, Go! Sports Ski, a small downloadable game available for the PlayStation 3 from Sony's PlayStation Network, is the only game in town at this point. Regardless, this so-called "skiing simulator" that's meant to show off the Sixaxis motion controls doesn't do enough--neither in quality nor in quantity--to fill that winter-sports void in a satisfactory manner.
Pros: Watching your avatar ski down a perfectly vertical cliffside can be amusing
Cons: Unreliable motion controls, Not a single AI opponent to race against, Extremely shallow
