Joystick (French) (Dec, 1991)
Voilà donc un jeu qui fait suite à Skate or die (pour ceux qui connaissent!) à recommander tout particulièrement pour les longues soirées d'hiver en famille ou entre amis et plus précisément aux fondus de la neige et de la glisse.
VideoGame (Jul, 1991)
Rodney, o velho conhecido do skate, resolveu abrir uma loja de esqui para "ganhar uns trocos" também no inverno.
Video Games (Sep, 1991)
Spielt man alleine, droht relativ rasch ein gewisser Sättigungseffekt. Hat man die Steuerung einmal heraus, hält sich die Herausforderung etwas in Grenzen. Bei einem Wettkampf mit ein paar Freunden macht Ski or Die aber immer wieder Spaß, obwohl man nur bei einer Disziplin zu zweit gleichzeitig an die Joypads darf .
Power Play (Nov, 1991)
Palcolms winterliche Spielesammlung macht warm ums Herz. Wer auf witzige, spannende und ungewöhnliche Skisport-Disziplinen steht, der wird mit "Ski or Die" so manchen lustigen Abend im trauten Familien- oder Freundeskreis verbringen.
Micro News (Dec, 1991)
Sur le plan technique, les décors alpins et les bruitages nivéens vous mettent agréablement dans le bain de l'action. Ski or Die réconfortera les amateurs en manque de glisse.
NES Center (2001)
Zwischendurch ist "Ski Or die" (trotz der ganzen Meckerei) ein kurzweiliges Game, bei dem Sportfans bedenkenlos zugreifen können. Wer jedoch Mehrspielerorgien sucht, sollte sich lieber "Nintendo World Cup" krallen!
Bionic Leader issues a new challenge for shred heads in a collection of winter sports similar in set-up to the original Skate or Die from Ultra Soft. The five events include downhill, skiing, snowboarding, innertubing and snowball tossing. Play control is smooth, but it will take some practice to master the downhill and ski jump. Up to six players can register and take turns competing.
67 (Jun, 2013)
Skiing downhill in Downhill Blitz is the only event reminiscent of skating, in that, you will fall several times and break dozens of bones before you reach the bottom. But four out of five exciting wintery events are better than any amount of skating and/or dying.
The Video Game Critic (Feb 22, 2012)
Ski or Die is no classic but if Mother Nature isn't delivering the white stuff you can always live vicariously through this.
Presentation is extreme and gnarly, but even with a few buddies playing together the game will attract a few laughs at its expense and not because of the fun that could have been.
