  1. This game does a remarkable job of actualizing the events it presents. The graphics are strong, and the lighting effects are dynamic...It just lacks competitive depth.
  2. Despite a slick presentation and several clearly enjoyable moments, Salt Lake fails to capture the magnitude of this periodic winter spectacle and is in reality an entertaining yet brief whirl through just a fraction of the events you might expect.
  3. While no one is going to sling a gold medal around its box, it's much better than its predecessor in almost every way, which boosts the quality from abysmal to merely okay.

    Suffers from a lack of replay value: Once you get the hang of its flawed controls, it is possible to get a gold medal in each event within an hour or so of play, leaving little reason to ever touch the game again.
  5. The grand total of six events feels rather skimpy, and they're very uneven in how well they play. [May 2002, p.90]
  6. After just a half-hour, SLC 2002 will be straight in the trash. It's a mathematical certainty. [May 2002, p.77]

    An aggravating, poor, highly unenjoyable game that barely qualifies as rubbish. This stupid, stupid title's sheer lack of everything is plain baffling.
