I just played some Ski or Die. It has a cool vibe and the graphics are pretty nice too. The game also plays pretty smoothly, so that’s nice. I get the impression the game is mainly aimed at local/hotseat multiplayer though, as I’m not sure there are AIs to compete against? So playing this on my own, I wasn’t really sure how well I was actually doing since there’s nothing to compare it against haha.
The ski jumping is pretty cool and I was actually managed to do some stunts and land successfully. The downhill skiing is more frustrating because the perspective is very weird. You view your character from the front, but if you press left he goes visually left, but it’s actually their right. I can’t cope with this sort of stuff haha.
The other minigams are fun too (snowball throwing anyone?) but they’re not on skis, so they don’t count.
There’s a lot I like about this game. Well, OK, mainly the charm. This game is charming as heck. There’s a lot of creativity there in the types of events they went with, and each one has heaps of cheeky, whimsical touches.
But yes, the controls in the downhill event in particular are absolute balls to get used to. I imagine when I get a feel for them it would be fine though.
