Infogrames qui a pris le pari ô combien risqué d'investir dans un nouveau type de simulation sportive qu'est l'alpinisme, a eu la bonne idée de s'offrir les conseils avisés d'un montagnard aguerri, Eric Escoffier. Le résultat issu de cette rencontre improbable donne naissance à un soft doté d'un réalisme qui frôle la perfection. Retranscrivant avec brio la nécessité d'une préparation minutieuse et stratégique associée à la connaissance du terrain et de ses pièges sournois, rarement une simulation ne sera parvenue à nous faire ressentir ce qu'un alpiniste peu vivre en haute montagne. Isolé face à des conditions météo changeantes, à des moments de stress, au froid et à la faim, seul votre leitmotiv disant que « rien n'est impossible » parviendra à vous faire tenir jusqu'au plus haut sommet. Un bel hommage rendu à cette discipline et à tous les grimpeurs.

CHAMONIX CHALLENGE ist ein hervorragendes Programm, das durch die vielen Überraschungen und Effekte keinesfalls langweilig wird. In den höheren Levels muß man sich absichern (Seiltechniken sind gefragt) usw. Die Grafik ist recht nett gemacht, auch die Animation ist gut. Weiterhin gibt es für die deutsche Anleitung einen Pluspunkt, denn somit weiß man, was man einpackt (was heißt denn Kochgeschirr auf Französisch?), wohin man geht usw. Darüberhinaus macht es sehr viel Spaß, auf den Bergen umherzukraxeln, ohne daß man sich etwas abfriert. Die Vielzahl der Bewegungen heben das noch hervor. Für mich ist CHAMONIX CHALLENGE eines der besten Sportsimulationen überhaupt. Viel Spaß beim Bergsteigen, und stürzen Sie nicht ab, denn irgendjemand muß noch unsere ASM lesen!

Chamonix Challenge is very pretty to look at and extremely difficult to play. The ST graphics are the better by a margin, largely because of more detail.

Make no mistake, this is no arcade or adventure game, but a richly graphical, creatively conceived and implemented climbing simulation that will appeal to anyone interested in the sport, buy may prove less than stimulating to the purist arcader.

The rockface is the most frustrating part of the game. To succeed you must find good foot and hand holds. This part of the game I found disappointing because of the perseverance needed to succeed: Patience is not just a virtue in Chamonix Challenge - it's a necessity.
The One
Still, if you don't mind your action at a slow pace and find the idea of mixing a bit of strategy with some careful preparation appealing, Final Assault is the man for the job. It's a rewarding experience - provided you've got the patience and determination to succeed.
ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
You have to prepare your climber properly before you start the ascent however as he could freeze to death, go snowblind or catch sunburn. Chamonix Challenge has a novel scenario and some colourful and well animated graphics but it has poor gameplay and unless you're a real fan of the sport you could well find the fun wearing off quickly.
