    are you talking about the old epyx games? i don't think this game is related to them.

    I wonder if the snowboarding is better than the ssx games... [​IMG]

    *edit: oooh boy, it might be worse. this game is horrible. oh well *sticks it with the other 1300 roms* [​IMG]

    by the way, the old pc versions were more fun.

    It's games like this (and many many others) that make me wonder if companies even beta test their games, and take non-partisan criticism of them. While this game isn't horribly bad, I am surprised that someone would market it and think that they would make a decent profit from it.

    Maybe there is a crappy winter sports niche market that I don't know about....

    I was reminded of that too. God I put hours into that old C64 title. My favorites were Hot Dog and Bobsled, though I'm sure if I saw them again today I'd wonder how the hell I was ever so enthralled by something so basic [​IMG]

    This game isnt that bad at all! You know, not ALL games are going to be at the level of things like FFTA or Advance Wars, so get used to it. This isn't half bad.

    Curious that no one refer to the fantastic game of the SNES. It was made by a french team, and after i saw the pic of the gba game i thought it was a port of "Val d'isere" on SNES.
