Steep review – GamesTM

It should be the perfect time of year to have a winter extreme sports game to sink your teeth into, but Steep’s biggest selling point is also its biggest mistake: it’s yet another open world, this one offering snowboarding, skiing, wingsuiting and paragliding.

Sports games usually pick either an arcade or simulation angle, but Ubisoft Annecy tries to straddle the line between both, and takes itself far too seriously with daft cut-scenes unveiling a newly found mountain with a voice-over that talks to you about how “epic” it is and how you must conquer it. It’s daft, unnecessary, and risks obscuring the fact that Steep can actually feel fantastic when you’re left to your own devices.”
