Animation, backgrounds and perspective are quite superb. Not much gameplay but enormous playability - enough to keep you trying to shave off those fractions of a second for a long, long time.
The Games Machine (UK)
Fine use of the machine's capability to handle fast moving, colourful graphics. All options are selected from graphic screens with well drawn backdrops. Sound is minimal - just the noise of the skis - but effective. Probably the best simulation on this theme, and definitely the one to play if you're into winter sports.
The behind-the-skier view, together with the way in which the courses twist and turn, help to add to the game's realism. I thoroughly enjoyed this game and recommend it to everyone. It's definitely not easy, but it's certainly great fun.
[Budget re-release] You get a real feeling of speed as the trees whizz by and the slalom poles knock your elbows. Effects are liberal, but sound pretty tinny through the ST speaker. Graphics, though, are Amiga quality.
