There is not much to be said about Accolade's Winter Challenge. In the late eighties and early nineties, Accolade was making only sports games like Cycles, Grand Prix Circuit, Summer Challenge and so on. Winter Challenge is just one in the successful series.
It's packed with various events ranging from bobsled to ski jumps, biathlon, speed skating, all kinds of slaloms and so on. You can pretty much see all the available events on the first screenshot. As is usually the case with Accolade games, Winter Challenge is very well programmed. There are no bugs, glitches or errors -- everything just runs smoothly.
The accompanying sounds are not the best I've heard, but they are pretty good nonetheless. Graphics are similar to those in Summer Challenge, except perhaps with a little less detail, but that's OK, since it is a year older.
The controls are typical for this genre: Keyboard smashing is inevitable in some events, such as speed skating or biathlon. However, it's still within reasonable levels. Also, you will have to learn some pretty difficult techniques in order to compete against world-class opponents.
You can also play against your friends or play with your friends against computer opponents.
