Lots of games/sports to play and decent graphics. But the wonky controls are a deal breaker for me. I'm bummed, I was looking forward to a good curling game.

AVOID!
The only good part is the graphics and maybe the interface. The controls are basicly MIA because on some it plays by it self and others dont register at all. The commentary is faded and annoying! I played it for just a few minutes; the delay did not help the game! I thought Mario and Sonic At The Olympics was bad but that was (some what) playable.

For the most part the game is a disaster with controls that are either too sensitive or not sensitive enough, and other controls that are either too simple or not simple enough. But the developers hit the proverbial nail on the head with the downhill skiing events.

To me this game is only worth it for the downhill ski racing events and proves that an even more in-depth skiing game will work extremely well on the Wii.

As for the other events.. well the game mechanics either don't work very well, are too easy or in the case of figure skating are just down right stupid (hint: yet another rhythm-based system).

It's worth checking out for the skiing events alone. They are very realistic and extremely challenging and will having you trying to beat your best time over and over again.
