Le jeu, très bien conçu, fait plus appel à la synchronisation des mouvements qu'à la force brutale. Une belle simulation sportive qui n'a rien perdu de son efficacité.

NES Times
Even if you never played the C64 version, you’ll still find the NES Winter Games to be a very disappointing sports game that doesn't even deserve the bronze. Fans of Epyx games will want to stay far away from this one. Play the C64 and Atari versions instead and put this failure on ice.

Avec ses graphismes hideux qui feraient presque passer les premiers jeux NES pour des oeuvres d'art, sa compétition qui ne dure que quelques minutes et le caractère pseudo-aléatoire de sa jouabilité, Winter Games est purement et simplement un désastre. On l'étudie plutôt qu'on y joue, le disséquant avec une incrédulité mêlée de dégoût. Comment un titre pareil a-t-il pu voir le jour, non seulement sur le marché japonais, au format Disk System, mais américain aussi ? Il est plus laid qu'un jeu Atari 2600, plus court qu'un jeu Tiger, plus lourd qu'un jeu de pétanque. Si cet hiver vous ne mourez pas de froid, il y a toujours Winter Games pour vous achever.

The Video Game Critic
Winter Games unceremoniously ends by returning you to the main menu, without even bothering to mention who won. High scores are recorded on world record screens, but I don't know if that was ever battery backed-up. The best thing about Winter Games is that it's over so quickly. Wow, this is really a half-hearted translation of what should have been a quality game.
