- Summary: WINTER SPORTS 2 is an arcade-oriented 3D simulation of only the most popular winter sports.

The control can be iffy, a few of the event mechanics are horrendous, the technicals are sadly well under par, and the Campaign includes plenty of “what the hell am I doing this for?” moments. But you can wrap your brain around most of the gameplay, and that’s a definite plus. With multiple difficulty levels and the chance to include some buddies in your play time, you could have plenty of fun when the wintry weather keeps you inside.
The challenge with Winter Sports 2: The Next Challenge is spending a large amount of time attempting to master the events in this budget title, when there are other all encompassing sports games that have better controls, more depth and better visuals and commentary than this one.
