    Ski Safari is just plain old great. It's simple enough to get into right away, but has just enough intricacies to keep things interesting. The added tasks and quirky power-ups are also a big plus. Yet another high-quality runner to add to that ever-growing library.

    Taken for what it is, Ski Safari provides several hours of snow-carving fun, and this is made even cooler with the inclusion of in-game achievements and, most importantly, leaderboards via Game Center, where the desire to rise up a few levels will definitely fuel your virtual skiing addiction.

    Scoretable issues aside, Ski Safari is an excellent addition to the genre and offers up a lot of replay value. The simple control system and excellent characters make it easy to recommend to those looking for their next big endless runner title.

    Ski Safari is well-made game, but it doesn't break any new ground.

    It lacks that immediate need for twitch reaction that makes great endless runners so fiendishly addictive. Regardless, I still had a lot of fun jumping off ramps for huge air, lazily performing a triple backflips, and using my Yeti brethren to my advantage.

    The lack of any real depth and the abruptness with which the title becomes stale both ruin the value of it.
