If you are a snowmobile racing fan looking for a snowmobile racing game, then Sled Storm is a must buy. Look no further, this game is for you. However, since snowmobile racing isn't really the hottest growing sport in America, I can only tell the rest of you to rent this game and maybe you'll like it enough to buy it. All in all, this is a great, solid game. Thumbs up.

I was mighty impressed with Sled Storm. It looks stunning, it plays superb, it sounds good and the 4 Player multi-tap split-screen racing works a treat. Furthermore, the inclusion of dozens of secret short cuts adds tremedously to the gameplay in a similar way that made Twisted Metal 2 so popular. Sledging along in the lead when another rider lands in front from the mountain above somehow doesn't make you feel cheated... it only makes you want to go back and find out how the hell he got up there in first place!
In a nutshell, Sled Storm is a fun game that’s hard to put down. This game should primarily appeal to race game fans or snowmobile riders, but don’t let that stop you even if you aren’t, as I suckered a few people that don’t normally like these types of games into playing it and they had a blast. With its nice graphics, great sounds, different racing theme, variety of tricks and tracks, and responsive controls, I give this game a score of 88.
Mega Fun
Sled Storm erinnert mich durch das genial authentische Verhalten der ungewöhnlichen Rennvehikel immer wieder an Nintendos Wave Race. Leider erreicht der Racer nicht ganz die Klasse seines Vorbildes. Zum einen stört mich der schlechte Aufbau der Landschaften und zum anderen verhindert der relativ schwache Umfang der Simulation, dass Sled Storm den Sprung ganz nach oben schafft. Dass der Flitzer trotzdem beinahe ein Muss für jeden Rennspiel-Fan ist, liegt an dem hohen Fun-Faktor (bzw. Suchtfaktor), der während der Rennen aufkommt. Es macht einfach Laune, den Schlitten durch enge Kurven zu manövrieren oder spektakuläre Sprünge zu vollführen. Zudem sind die vielen versteckten Abkürzungen Garant dafür, dass die Kurse so schnell nicht langweilig werden. Last but not least verleiht die flotte und detailreiche Grafik-Engine dem Spiel echtes Renn-Feeling.

Sled Storm macht aufgrund der feinen Grafik-Engine, der genialen Schnee-Effekte (aufspritzender Pulver, blaues Eis, hervorscheinender Dreck, wackelnde Eisschollen etc.), des starken Strecken-Layouts und der tierischen Musik-Untermalung soviel Spaß, dass man sich wünscht, der Winter wäre schon da! Die seltenen Slowdowns bei allen vier Sleds gleichzeitig On-Screen, oder die fehlenden Spuren in der nächsten Rennrunde kratzen da nicht am Gameplay-Faktor dieses Top-Produkts.

Electronic Arts har med Sled Storm hu som helst gjort ett pionjärarbete. Även om många av inslagen är hämtade från den vanliga racing-världen och det finns likheter med olika vattenskoterspel känns det i alla fall som om det här skulle kunna vara början på en ny och originell spelgenre. Och detska man ju naturligtvis vara tacksam för.

Het komt niet vaak voor dat EA een spel uitbrengt zonder er een boel bombarie omheen te produceren maar deze keer hebben ze dat onterecht achterwege gelaten. Sled Storm is namelijk een prima spel waar alle sneeuw- en racefans dikke pret mee zullen hebben.
If this review sounds more like an infomercial to you skeptical gamers, it's because this writer tried long and hard to find flaws - and they were few and far between. The challenge might be a little high, since you get only three lives to complete a championship. Fortunately, there's a nifty option to turn off automatic catch-up by computer racers, which evens the odds a bit. Some of the forest textures looked flat on some tracks, and it would've been nice to have an option to play your own music CD during a race - but frankly, these complaints hardly affect the bottom line: For any gamer looking for a uniquely fresh adrenaline rush, Sled Storm makes for one very worthy purchase.
Pour résumer, Sled Storm est un jeu agréable à jouer car d'une part son originalité est rafraîchissante et d'autre part, l'action y est fluide. De plus, de nombreuses options permettront d'y trouver son compte en solo ou en multijoueur. Le tout n'est pas parfait mais la somme de ses petits défauts sont bien loin de gâcher l'attrait de Sled Storm.
The Video Game Critic
In terms of scenery, there's not much to see, but snowy ramps and shortcuts can be found all over the place. You can even catch some air and perform trick combinations. In addition to off-road tracks, there are also motorcross-style courses which tend to be more repetitive than fun. The music is dominated by Rob Zombie and his omni-present "Dragula", but I guess it could be worse, right? No, not really! Sled Storm isn't spectacular, but it does provide competitive winter racing action, especially with multiple players.
Spel för Alla
Det här är något så annorlunda som ett snöskoterracingspel, det första i sitt slag. EA Sports är bra på sportspel och med Sled Storm har de lyckats skapa ett riktigt bra racingspel.
