  1. The camera angles in the game are brilliantly done - and can be altered during play. You also get an excellent two-player split screen option on the snowboard slalom.
  2. A good game with solid mechanics backing up its good visuals, but the depth and breadth of the game will have you sitting around waiting for more snow in a very dry season.
  3. The game isn’t able to fully achieve an overall genuinely thrilling appeal or provide over-the-top fun.
  4. The Snowboard Slalom is a framerate abomination and, regardless of your adjustments, it controls like you're half-drunk. [Apr 2002, p.105]

    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.
  6. Get a Saturn with "Winter Heat" instead and leave ATD to figure out that an unrushed "Rollcage 3" would be a far, far worthier project.
  7. This multi-event crapfest manages to combine all the fun of a pipe-fitting seminar with the pain of slamming your hand in a car door.
