Few people can claim the title of Olympic athlete, and to represent their country on the world stage. Yet you and your crew can still get a taste of what it feels like to capture Olympic gold, with Sega's officially licensed Winter Olympics game.

STACK's Favorite Features
First Person View: This really throws you into the action by allowing you to experience the Games from the athlete's point of view. Try racing the Skeleton face-first and find out how difficult it is to turn while moving at speeds faster than your car.
Online Mode: A chance to test your Olympic skills against the rest of the world. Gamers are able to compete against three other opponents and tally up medals along the way. Find out who's the best Olympic athlete overall and raise your country's colors during each medal ceremony.
STACK's Favorite Event
Ski Aerials: One of the more complex events, it's all about gaining enough speed and hitting your jumps perfectly while spinning in mid-air, tight and crisp, and then stomping your landing. It's one of the most exciting events to play, because anything can happen and gamers will have to risk it all to capture the gold.
