Winter Stars is a breath of fresh air for the genre, enabling sports fans of all ages and abilities to compete with one another or against virtual opponents in no less than eleven disciplines: snowmobiling, bobsledding, downhill skiing, figure skating, biathlon, free ride skiing, snowboard cross, ski jumping, para-skiing, curling, and short-track. In thrilling multiplayer action, up to four players can engage in dynamic online or offline competitions for championship titles, or simply enjoy the variety of winter sports themed mini-games on offer. The story-driven single player mode not only features an extensive career system and character development, but also a number of special challenges such as training sessions that provide arcade-style enjoyment in between events. Console athletes can use the experience points earned to purchase new equipment and improve skills in preparation for the diverse challenges ahead, and to support the team on its path to victory.
Rated 1 out of 10 by VelvetyOne What a Waste!
Unable to get to Snowmobile, Curling until you've gone through a 'career' and built yourself up to it. Figure skating absolutely is useless and extremely stupid to try to follow a blue circle on the ice. Game locks up - and doesn't want to follow commands that great. Overall, this game belongs in the trash bin. We put it in the xbox once and it went right back to the store. Game cover is misleading, it doesn't state ANYWHERE that the cool games (snowmobile and curling) are locked up. Don't waste your money on this.
