    The extra meat found in the Campaign Mode at least gives the events a little more life, and the events themselves -- while not universally awesome -- are at least mildly fun across the board. In some cases, they can be plenty of fun in multiplayer with friends.

    If you plan to buy this game for the curling, like I did, than save your money as the curling is garbage. You cannot select the number or rocks or ends you will play. You cannot turn off the in game music or commentary. Its very awkward to put curl on a shot. The worst bit is that you cannot get an overhead view of the curling circle before you take a shot which makes it very difficult to line up a good shot. The curling on ESPN Internatinal Winter Sports 2002 was far better. The other events of the game were unspectacular. Expand

    Bought this game for the curling and what a mistake. I can forgive a lot but not being able to have an overhead view of the curling circle before you line up a shot is simply unacceptable in a curling game. If you want this game for the curling part, don't bother. Expand
