All in all, Extreme Wintersports isn't terrible, but the skimpy game content, limited number of tracks, and bad design choices kick it back to the bottom of the barrel (which, I've got to admit, is still a few inches above the rest of the HeadGames fodder). We've seen worse, but there's still much better out there. Try again, dudes.

Head Games once again shows gamers what they're all about -- product placement. And we all know what you gamers out there want to spend $20 on an advertisement for skiing, snowboarding, and snowmobile gear, right? The games in the Extreme series never cease to amazing me, and it's obvious that the marketing team at Head Games works hard at getting big licenses, only to give small developers next to no time to create a game that's nothing more than a glorified commercial. To be perfectly honest, I'd rather be stranded under an avalanche than play this game anymore.

The best you can say about Extreme Wintersports is that HeadGames, K2, and Arctic Cat apparently got what they wanted: HeadGames was able to crank out yet another budget title, and K2 and Arctic Cat got either licensing dollars or free advertising, or both. Too bad no one ever thought to include gamers in the equation.

Ebenfalls übereinstimmend mies ist die geringe Sichtweite, eine unzuverlässige Steuerung und die detailarme Magergrafik. Der nervige Soundtrack (gerade mal ein sich ständig wiederholendes Lied) und die penetrante Werbeberieselung bekräftigen den Entschluss, diese CD fortan nur noch als Klorollen-Stütze zu nutzen.

The only person I can recommend this game to is someone stranded on a desert island who has access to a computer (and an electric outlet of course) and has no software whatsoever. Even then, I think the best use of this game for that individual would be to start a fire with it and hope someone sees the smoke and comes to rescue them. If you think this is still a viable title for you to purchase, I have a plot of land on Mars could sell you for $10 cheaper. Just mail it to me care of PC Gameworld. Thanks for your support.
