    Not too substantial, but surprisingly polished. [Apr 2009, p.91]

    Winter Sports 2009 simply does the job. It is easy to play and offers a fair amount of entertainment – and at a welcome bargain price that will appeal to many sports fans. However, with poor presentation values and only a handful of really fun or challenging events, it’s a game you’ll be unlikely to dig out on a regular basis unless you’ve an unquenchable thirst for competition or a few mates up for some multiplayer action.

    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.

    Winter Sports 2009: The Next Challenge is a budget title in every sense of the word. While the cheap price point and promise of numerous events may entice some gamers to give it a go, the repetitive and frustrating control scheme, the complete omission of online gameplay and overall lack of polish will turn most people off before long.

    Honestly, no one will want to play this for more than 10 minutes. [July 2009, p.81]

    A stab at a cold Summer Athletics anchored down by too many weak events. [Apr 2009, p.89]

    Ignoring, as is really only fair, the poor timing of its release there's still a multitude of reasons why you shouldn't spend your hard earned money on Winter Sports: The Next challenge 2009. Mow the lawn, look at the lambs or just enjoy the extra daylight, whatever you do with these warm spring days make sure it's more enjoyable than playing this.
  8. The frankly rubbish Summer Athletics by another name, and therefore still utterly depressing. Don’t even think about wasting your money on this.
