Summary: ESPN International Winter Sports 2002 is preety dumb. There's no Olympic Athletics and that takes away alot. I was looking forward to Speed Skating with Apolo Onno but their was this guy that was not even a speed skater. So I moved on to snowboarding and their was that same guy.
Summary: This is one great game. It is lots of fun! It is loads better than Salt Lake City 2002, because it has more events, and the events are much better. This is a challenging game, with competitions that are hard, but can be easier depending on how much you practice the events, and which character you...
Summary: This is a great game! It has ten events, each very fun. However, a create a player mode would be nice. A more realistic olympic compitition would be great. Also, IT NEEDS REAL ATHLETES! Speed Skating 6/10 It's fun, but pressing O and X at various speeds isn't THAT fun.
Summary: I enjoy this game and it's not as much button mashing as one would think. Some events are better than others, but there is a good variety of different events, and several competition modes to keep things from getting repetitive.
Potentially more fun than the official SLC 2002 videogame

Summary: Consider...ESPN Winter Sports 2002 will have more events than Eidos' Salt Lake 2002 (10 vs. 6), and a better VARIETY of events (downhill, slalom, 4-man bobsled, snowboarding (halfpipe), 90 and 120m ski-jumping, freestyle moguls, 500m speedskating, ladies' figure skating and men's curling) vs.
Excerpt: I'm not sure that I can add too much to the original full review, but I chose this when I recently bought a PS2 package (following World Cup success and all that!) and immediately knuckled down to it.
Excerpt: When i bought this game, it was the only rugby title out on any console apart from Jonah Lomu Rugby for the playstation. Although this game is a big improvement from Jonah Lomu Rugby, it does leave alot to be desired.
Summary: 1) Prop forwards very rarely hoist inch perfect up and unders, race 30 metres and then out jump full backs like Chris Latham. 2) Offside is NOT passing the ball backwards to a player who has just returned from being in front of you at the last breakdown.
Excerpt: When it came to Rugby games on the Playstation, the only one worth mentioning previously was Jonah Lomu Rugby. That is of course until 2001 when those clever guys at EA sports decided it was time for them to get in on the action.
Pros: Good Graphics, Training option is very good, as is the multiplayer
Cons: Game play isnt as good as it could have been . Some computer teams are far too hard to play .
Excerpt: This game is a must for all Rugby fans. It has good graphics, simple to play and is great fun. (Especially when you thump your mates) I would also recommend this game to all non-rugby fans that don’t know much about the sport; you can easily and quickly pick up the rules and game play.
Pros: Great fun and can play for ages against your mates
