Ski or Die reviews

The Games Machine (1990): "Rob Hubbard has coaxed a commendable Heavy Metal guitar sound out of the PC and used it to produce some amusingly over-the-top music. All this, plus polished presentation and fast loading, makes for an exceptional PC product."

Computer and Video Games (1990): "Ski or Die is by far the best sports game available on the PC, and the best thing of all is that you don´t need a top-of-the-range PC to appreciate it!"
