Let's be honest: There are heaps (almost mountains) of winter sports games, and most of them are downhill or slalom races, which play like yet another racing game, in which they simply replaced the car sprite with a ski racer sprite. Actually there might be nothing wrong about it , but to those, who always wished for a more original approach to the alternative winter extreme sports, I want to heartily recommend Ski or Die. There you have to compete in five unusual disciplines (from snowball fight to inner-tube racing) against clock, man and high-score and attempt to make the best impression on the snow fields.
Children love to swing. The dizzy feeling is especially fun when the world starts spinning. A feeling that today's big kids also know. But with their high-tech toys in the form of virtual reality goggles, this motion sickness is perceived as rather disturbing. At least the professionals in the circus tent on their high trapeze swings may not be scared of heights in order to bring the fascination to the audience without accidents. In any case, in the perfect computer game world, the player is one hundred percent protected against a fall, without having to expose himself to the danger of the real experience itself.
It's the early 60s. You're one of those 'cool rebels' who spend all day in their garage with their car. Tuning the motor, polishing it and in more intimate moments, probably even stroking it. However, what's the worth of a beautiful girlfriend which nobody else knows about? Exactly. That's why you're taking part in illegal road races.
There's just one place where people like you meet in your home town Los Angeles: Bob's Drive-In. Just pick one of the people who drive by in their car and challenge them either for a road race (exactly what you'll expect it to be) or a drag race (just a short straight track to test the competing cars' accelleration and top speed).
