Summary: It looks like fun from the case but the actual game was complicated and blurry and hard to navigate through and even after we figured it out the games were not that fun. I can see why someone wanted to sell it.
Summary: This game needs a nunchuck and it is very difficult to manipulate the controls to follow the action. My seven year old granddaughter was disappointed and she is an expert with other wi games that use the nunchucks.
Summary: I'm not sure what I expected from this game, but it is not the game my kids go to when they turn on the Wii. We have all tried it in our family, some of the games are fun and some are just too difficult to figure out. I'm not sure I would purchase this again if given the chance.
Summary: The game is poor at best. It might be a good game if you want to spend a long time figuring out the controls and how to actually play each event but if not then stay away. The controls are anything but intuitive and in some cases are just plain stupid and this really ruins the game. I'm all for games that offer a challenge but not ones that are close to impossible at first because the control system is so bad.
Excerpt: This game is a bit rubbish. Its basically a wii game that instead of using the wii controls to do something innovative, cool, or different, has decided on making a game as painstakingly tedious as physically possible, whilst giving you the wii equivalent of a tennis elbow. Ok so basically this isnt a game, its more a series of minigames, like wii sports, or wii party etc.
Excerpt: Winter sports....I have always enjoyed the sports games offered by so many consoles over the years..I remember a great sports game on the PlayStation when it first came out...awesome!....anyway... ....I actually dont mind this game, I did go out and purchase NEW from GAME I think, overall I like what the game has to offer and after a bit of practising I managed to grasp all of the events you can enter.
Excerpt: Unfortunately I would have to say that this game was a massive disappointment. I had always loved the classic winter sports games where you had to tap two keys as fast as you can and thought that the games on this would be as enjoyable, but sadly they are not. I enjoy skiing in real life, but the skiing on this is so unrealistic and unbelievably difficult that it is just not enjoyable.
Winter sports! Not as good as some people are making out.

Conclusion: Picked this game up after a few reviews on here as i couldn't find any official reviews and i wished i didn't as its a pretty poor game, pretty tough to master some of the events and controls don't really feel that responsive. The graphics are average to bad compared with most wii games and commentary is ok but nothing to get excited about. Never tried the game in Multiplayer but thats where it might excel a little as it does support 4 players.
Conclusion: My 7 year old sport mad son bought this age 3+ rated game with his birthday money and was very disapointed when he couldnt master any of the controlls especially the curling....confused me just as much so it now gathers dust on his bedroom shelf!! Dont bother if it is for anyone who is competative as you just end up watching the others win!!! I wish these games had better instructions, it would make life alot easier !!
