Experience the thrills and brutal spills of cold-air competition with ESPN International Winter Sports 2002. The game's 10 fast-paced events include downhill alpine skiing, freestyle mogul skiing, bobsledding, speed skating, and more. Carve gates at death-defying speeds in the slalom or bust big air in the ski jump. There's even a curling competition. Compete in the trial mode and select events with aspirations of winning the gold and smashing records.
While in championship mode--the highest level of difficulty--you pick one country and compete in all events. Choose to represent the U.S., England, Canada, France, Holland, Italy, Japan, or Germany. Each country has its own unique characteristics, abilities, strengths, and weaknesses. A two-player split-screen mode lets you go head-to-head in an in-your-face test of speed and skill. Crisp graphics render the winter conditions realistically, letting you spray snow in the slalom or stare down the glare of ice that faces you in the treacherous bobsled run.
