I actually debated reviewing this game because it irritates me so much. Being clear, my objection isn’t even so much that the game’s premise is offensive. It is, shooting people participating in ski jumps with a sniper rifle is pretty sick. However, what grinds my gears is how sloppy and lackluster the gameplay happens to be. If you’re going to get people to pay for a skier sniping game you should truly earn their dollars. I want more fluidity, more detail as the bullet smashes into their tissue, and I want to hear and feel their bones break as they make contact with the ground and then ragdoll lifeless down the slope. Nobody should make a game that hopes to get people to buy it on shock value but then fails to truly deliver on that promise. If you’re going to bother to try to offend, don’t cheapen the overall market with schlock. That’s what really makes the industry look bad.
