Although the digital controls are somewhere harsh for events that require finesse, they are certainly responsive. Events like the downhill and bobsled convey an exciting breakneck sense of speed. Several events allow two players to race at the same time, including speed skating, cross-country, and slalom. After the winner takes the podium, you're treated to highlights of his performance as the credits roll. High scores are saved automatically. Winter Heat is an outstanding Saturn title, and I really can't recommend this game enough to fans of winter sports.

Su gran inconveniente viene de la limitación impuesta por el propio género, es decir, vistas las 11 pruebas no hay más sorpresas. Su verdadero valor viene por la jugabilidad y el atractivo de las situaciones. Aporrear los botones para ganar velocidad y a la vez maniobrar el pad para buscar una buena posición siempre ha tenido su encanto. Las competiciones a dobles pueden ser divertidas batallas, y batir los records un aliciente añadido para el jugador en solitario. Sumadle unos gráficos de calidad y un ambiente logradísimo con un buen número de pruebas (algunas de elevadísima dificultad) y tendréis un juego deportivo brillante y muy recomendable... si esto del deporte os interesa.

É o jogo mais quente, dentro do género, disponível para a Saturn. O vasto leque de modalidades disponíveis e os fantásticos gráficos tornam-no num dos melhores investimentos para quem gosta de sentir a emoção da neve sem ter de sair de casa.

Auf jeden Fall ein Spiel das in keiner Saturnsammlung fehlen sollte! Allerdings heißt es sich zu beeilen, denn die Nachfrage übersteigt das Angebot bei weitem und die Preise erreichen jetzt bereits Schwarzmarktniveau...

Pour finir, Winter Heat nous prouve que la Saturn peut encore avoir de la ressource, et que sa mort annoncée par ses détracteurs n'est pas inéluctable. Un bon jeu donc pour égayer les jours de Pentecôte.

In the final run, Winter Heat is a great addition to your Saturn lineup. It's light, fun action that is best reflected in its multiplayer abilities.

All in all, Winter Heat is a pretty good game. Though the control is a little constricting in some of the events, it works well with the theme. If you enjoyed Decathlete and love the Winter Olympics, than Winter Heat is the game for you. Now that the Saturn is no longer being produced in the US, you should be able to find this solid title at a remarkably low price. Anyone who wants a good solid game to play on their Saturn won't be disappointed by Winter Heat.

Despite its simplicity and the immediate potential for carpal tunnel syndrome, Winter Heat succeeds at providing a fun and varied batch of snowy competitions. It does this by employing fairly consistent controls through a varied series of games. The speed button remains the speed button throughout, and so on. As a result, it's not such a headache to go from one competition to the next, and the package is tied together better than the competition's. It's a fairly fluid transition from one event to the next. In fact, the game is best played in the 11 Event Heat mode, one event after the other. Taken as a whole, the difference between the games makes Winter Heat more than the sum of its parts.
