The graphics are more realistic and appealing than those used in Winter Sports from Electric Dreams, and more innovative. Winter Sports loads its first three games at once, and then you have to load the final three in one at a time. There's no messing around with Winter Games - just two long loads using both sides of the cassette.

Three of the games in Winter Sports differ from those in the Epyx package. Those are slalom, giant slalom and ice hockey. If you buy Winter Games only you won't be missing much. So, go for gold - or at least a high personal standard - without stepping into the slush and damp of real snow.

Seven events in only two loads for only eight quid can’t be bad. I wasn’t impressed with the menu and medal screens, but the game itself is very good with beautiful backgrounds on most of the outdoor events. Side One is the best graphically, with sound on the events too, but Side Two features four events — it’s hard to decide which side to play. All the events require a fair amount of practice, some more than others — the skating and ski-jumping, for instance, need a lot of accurate joystick or keyboard control and split-second timing. Every event is of very high quality, and just when you think you’ve gone as far as you can, you find some other special move. With the snow gently descending in Ludlow, I’m glad I can get some skating practice in!
Fassen wir die WINTERGAMES noch einmal zusammen: Es handelt sich um ein absolutes Spitzenspiel, das seinesgleichen sucht. Die Spielmotivation kann gar nicht punktemäßig hoch genug angesetzt werden. Die Atmosphäre bei der Commodore-Fassung ist berauschend, einfach einzigartig. Desweiteren ist die Spielmöglichkeit (bis zu acht Wettstreitern beim Commodore hintereinander) für einen unterhaltsamen Familien- oder Partyabend geradezu optimal. WINTERGAMES ist ein Programm, das nicht so schnell langweilig wird. Es ist immer noch genug Ambition da, um bessere Ergebnisse zu erzielen. Es empfiehlt sich, einen Joystick mit Pistolengriff für dieses Spiel zu besorgen. Alle anderen „taugen“ hier nichts. „taugen“ hier nichts. Leider muß ich fast alle diese Prädikate ausschließlich der C64-Version verleihen, da die Spectrum-Fassung nicht die nötige Stimmung aufkommen läßt (Sound & Geräusche) und für mehrere Spieler kaum nutzbar ist (nur ein Joystick; sonst nur Tastatur!)
On the whole though, this is a good selection, which compares well with its competitor, Winter Sports.

In the end those all important style points go to Winter Games, mainly for the graphics and music, and if you must have yet another excuse for not going out and getting some real exercise, then this is probably the one.
