If you liked mario and the summer games version you will be disapponited with this game. The controls are not what you would expect. The game is for someone under 8. With hockey you would expect to play a game and it is about knocking down blocks.
I love this game for sake of it being really easy to "pick up and play". The game has instructions before every event that you play that take about 2 minutes to read and then you are off and running. The Skiing and Snowboarding have levels that are very similar to Mario Kart, which are a lot of fun. The only negative that I would give is that there is not a lot of depth to the events. Instead of having just Bobsledding, Skiing, Snowboarding and Ski Jumping and having multiple levels with those four games. They decided to make the more sports instead of events. Overall, a great game!
