Five snowballing events are yours for the taking in this Amiga version of the fab PC game. Ranging from the innertube thrash to the downhill blitz, all of the events have smart graphics and Rob Hubbard sound. A weird and wonderful sports game which shouldn't be missed.

Vielleicht erinnert sich von Euch noch jemand an den guten PC-Titelsound, dieser kann auf dem Amiga leider nicht mehr so begeistern. Da hatte Rob Hubbard wohl schon bessere Tage. Ansonsten ist die Umsetzung aber technisch in Ordnung. Das Game bietet programmtechnisch zwar nichts berauschendes, doch stimmt der Spielspaß wie schon bei der PC-Version allemal. Und darauf kommt's doch letztendlich an, oder?

CU Amiga (May, 1991)
Ski Or Die does not offer anything new, nor does it execute it with any massive class. Graphically, the figures are a little on the small size, and seem to be outlined rather coarsely. Sound too, is limited - while a soundtrack is non-existant. There again SOD, as it shall forever be known, does have a kind of rough charm. In fact as we skiBrits like to say, it has 'pas de style, beaucoup de bouteille'. It certainly made me thirsty to get on the piste again.

Power Play (May, 1991)
Bei Electronic Arts läßt man sich nicht hetzen: Ein sattes Jährchen verging zwischen dem Erscheinen der MS-DOS-Version von "Ski or Die" und der neuen Amiga-Umsetzung. Zum Glück ist die Spielidee relativ zeitlos: Die Programmierer befördern ein Häuflein unverfrorener Joystick-Wintersportler auf die Pisten, auf daß sie in sechs frostigen Disziplinen antreten.

Amiga Joker (Apr, 1991)
Alles in allem bietet Ski or Die nämlich hübsche Grafik, guten Sound von Meister Rob Hubbard, eine ausgefuchste Steuerung und jede Menge Spaß für "Schneebeißer" - auch im Frühling!

Play Time (May, 1991)
Abwechslung ist bei diesem Spiel Motto des Tages, unglücklicherweise ändert sich jedoch die Qualität des Wettbewerbs von Veranstaltung zu Veranstaltung. Dadurch ist es zwar Wert, daran teilzunehmen, nicht jedoch sein Leben dafür zu lassen.

Zero (Jun, 1991)
Overall presentation is a bit shoddy. So what, if anything, has Ski Or Die going for it? Erm, it is quite good fun to play, I suppose. The snowball fight is probably the best bit, while the rest don't really have much to offer at all. So if you're into snow in a big way, Ski Or Die may be your bowl of Frosties. And if not, it obviously won't be.

It looks as if much of the original PC game has been recycled for the Amiga version, and as a result, Ski or Die is rather unadventurous. In general, the events are merely cut-down versions of those seen in Skate or Die, with the addition of snow and skis. It's not a disaster, but could, and should have been a lot better.

Amiga Format (Apr, 1991)
As it is, it's only for those who either love snow, skate-style or old Epyx sports games.

Amiga Power (May, 1991)
Fun, funny and partially successful multi-event snow sports sim - quite charming but, it has to be said, really very slight.
17
Amiga Power (May, 1991)
Fun (for a while) with friends, but basically an old fashioned, patchy collection of unimpressive sub games.
