Summary

Lots of fun.

The Good

- The graphics. As with its sequel, "Summer Challenge", they mix motion capture with 3D, with excellent results. The colour palette is also fantastic for its time.

- The different trials are lots of fun to play, alone or (preferred) with friends who can laugh at your failures and then test their abilities themselves.

The Bad

- The music and sound effects are very good, but during certain trials, such as downhill skying, you won't be hearing much.

- Some trials, like the ski jump, are difficult to master because of the controls.

The Bottom Line

This game would be funny enough just because of the win / lose animations. Combined with the graphics and the trials themselves, it's the best winter sports game I've ever played.
