5 April 2008
  • Summary: In Winter Sports: The Ultimate Challenge players will shoosh, swoosh and soar in sporting events such as Alpine Skiing, Ski Jumping, Bobsledding, Luge, Figure Skating, Curling, and more! For the competitive gamer, there's even a split-screen multiplayer mode, allowing up to four players to take on a friend in head-to-head sporting action.

  • Excerpt: Back in 2006 I had the opportunity to review Bode Miller Alpine Skiing for the PC. While not the most graphically impressive title, it offered a solid skiing experience for a budget price. Flash forward to December 2007. Conspiracy Entertainment, a publisher who has been putting out numerous budget titles has released Winter Sports: The Ultimate Challenge for the Wii.

  • Summary: The quick alternating controls of speed skating and being whipped in the face by a wire prove there's a place for Nyko's fully wireless remote and Nunchuk.

Expert Review

GameSpot
23 January 2008
  • Summary: If you were to look at Winter Sports: The Ultimate Challenge and see it as a shoddy attempt to capitalize on the Wii's overwhelming popularity with a substandard sports compilation, you'd be right--but only half right. As you'll see, it's also directly based on the underwhelming Torino 2006, which was itself a shoddy attempt to capitalize on the last Winter Olympics.
  • Pros: Genuinely amusing (though repetitive) announcers, Some events offer decent motion controls
  • Cons: Most controls are boring, broken, or outright bizarre, Bland, uninteresting gameplay, Totally skimps on visual and audio details, Nine unique events are actually just seven

  • Pros: Toll umgesetzte Steuerung, Als Partyspiel perfekt, Abwechslungsreiche Wettkämpfe
  • Cons: Für Sportspielfans zu anspruchslos, Zu viele gleiche Sportdisziplinen, Langeweile nach mehreren Durchläufen, Grafik im direkten Vergleich etwas schwächer, Nervige Kommentatoren mit monotonen Sprüchen

RTL Winter Sports 2009

Looki.de
19 January 2009
  • Conclusion: RTL Wintersports 2009 ist nichts Halbes und nichts Ganzes. Mit den insgesamt zehn Disziplinen gibt es einen guten Überblick über die meisten Wintersport-Arten. Trotzdem sind davon nun einmal acht Disziplinen schon aus dem Vorgänger bekannt und die zwei neue Sportarten Biathlon und Halfpipe-Snowboarding eher mangelhaft umgesetzt.
  • Pros: ordentliche Animationen, nette Charaktermodelle, Kommentatoren, entspannende Musik..., Wii Balance-Board kompatibel, gute Bewegungserkennung, Herausforderungen, viele verschiedene Disziplinen, Karrieremodus..., anspruchsvoller Schwierigkeitsgrad, gute Steuerungserklärungen, drei Schwierigkeiten frei wählbar
  • Cons: heftiges Kantenflimmern, matschige Texturen, insgesamt veraltete Grafik, … die keine Wettkampfatmosphäre aufkommen lässt, Kommentatoren nerven recht schnell, Minispiel-Charakter, … der keine echte Karriere ist, nur zwei neue Sportarten, selbst auf „einfach“ teils schwer, starke Schwankungen bei CPU-Stärke
