    This is a very well done winter sports game. Even though the game is set up as primarily a snowboarding/skiing game, I hesitate to call it that. The developers have added paragliding and (what I consider to be just as fun as snowboarding) wing suits. The game takes several famous peaks in the Alps and brings them together in a large open playground. Controls are quite good once you get the hang of them. Be sure to turn off the trick safety option to fully enjoy the game. The different sports each have a different feel and each one controls well. While the controls feel solid, I did find a little bit of randomness when landing jumps. The game uses g-forces as a sort of life bar-experience too many g-forces in too quickly and you will crash. It is an interesting effect but can be a little annoying as the game does not do much to allow you to set up a landing. The game also does not have a grinding mechanic. This is a game where you have to be able to make your own fun. There are quite a few challenges available on each mountain and you can share runs as races, freestyle, etc. but you really don't have traditional races like in games like SSX. Much of the time spent is spent exploring. You can unlock items that have no effect other than visual but you never expand your skill set. If you need a feeling of progression or unlock able skills to enjoy a game, you may not be happy with this. You see other players populating to world and easily group up if you want to. It makes the mountains seem less desolate. One word of warning: this game REQUIRES an online connection. I was surprised by this and I hope the servers last a very long time. I personally hate this but I enjoy the game so much I can overlook it. I also want to touch on the world map. In short, it's amazing. It is shown in 3D and real time. That means you can go from a entire map view all the way down to seeing sparkles in the snow. If another play shoots by you will see them too. On top of that, you can instantly fast travel to peaks or drop zones you have unlocked. You will seen now loading screens once you get past the title screen. It truly is impressive. That also means if you crash during a run, simply holding a button will warp you back to the start. It is great tech that I hope to see in other games. All in all I would say this is a tremendous first effort in what I hope becomes a franchise. There are certainly things that are missing from the game that could come in a sequel but this is a very solid effort. Many Ubisoft games have come out that have an okay-at-best first offering but with solid bones underneath. It takes a sequel to work out the kinks. This is not like that. I feel that it is one of their best first efforts and I will continue to play long after I complete the challenges.

    Not SSX, but a beautiful game

    Steep has some awesome features, with some things to still be desired. The game itself is beautiful, and for the most part gameplay isn't too bad. There are some areas where it's easy to get stuck on rooftops or behind a house that are annoying, and the extended demo to start the game was dull and random - I almost sold the game before I opened up the map, but once you pass those few challenges it opens up the entire map and the world is yours to roam. The lack of an offline mode is a bummer, but it is nice to get on and play with a group of people. The many modes are great, and there are tons and tons of lines to run and drop zones to discover, creating hours of game play. The season pass has so far been worth it, with a new mountain, a new game mode and new costumes and gear.

    Steep is a must play game if you are an avid gamer. Honestly, I strongly recommend this game for casual gamers as well. Steep had the unfortunate timing of being released during a time so many good games are coming out. I did not plan on buying it considering I was really involved in two other games at the time but then I played at my friend's house. I kind of instantly feel in love with the game. The graphics are stunning and the gameplay is very fluid and realistic. Whatever you do play this game!

    This game is for anyone who might have an interest in winter sports. Things like Snowboarding or skiing. For some, it will be very repetitive but it's one of those games where you have to make your own fun. Nothing beats putting on some music and snowboarding a line from the top of a mountain to the bottom. The challenges are pretty cool and add some flavor, same as all the outfits. Overall, It's a good game to have in your collection but I wouldn't pay more than 20/30 dollars for it.

    Great Snow/Extreme Sports Game

    Steep was an unexpected announcement as there haven't been any great additions to the borderline realistic snow sports genre in a while. If you're familiar with the EA's Skate series, this is more like a winter sports version of that in comparison to the Tony Hawk arcade style game. The addition of Paragliding and Wingsuits means there is a greater variety than just having ski/snowboard events. Ubisoft has a great game here, and it doesn't suffer from the downfalls of their previous titles!

    Having played numerous snowboarding / snow sports games (the SSX series and Coolboarders series) I can say that this is exactly what this generation of consoles needed. A cool snow sports game that you can pick up and play. The beginning of the game can be a little confusing getting you acquainted with everything, but once you get past this part, the world opens up into something wonderful! I would highly recommend this game to anyone!

    Bought this for my husband who wanted a good ski/snowboard game for the winter. The open world deal is pretty cool and feels more like a trip out but the game play is so/so. Controls have a learning curve and aren't rly that fun compared to something like ssx, but thats not the point of this game. More of an enjoy the ride kind of thing. Id like to try it with the VR. Would recommend to the right person.
