This game is not for everyone. It is possible to love, and fiercely hate. To hate due to the fact that I want a gold medal, but doing something wrong. And sometimes don't understand you can't get the gold for himself, or because of some bugs. Yes, this game is about testing, about overcoming, about the sill. Under plain wrapper hides a hardcore game, so don't be deceived - it is easy to knock the gold here we need to break a few controllers. And, trust me, you want a gold medal. Why? Perfectionism. The music here is good. But the game would not have been as engrossing if not for the graphics. Oh yeah! Graphics are wonderful! especially the snow and it's physics.
In life I'm afraid to ride with such big mountains, but I would like! This game is a pleasant hiking adventure for fans of extreme sports. I can't call Steep for the big game. It's just a nice game that should cost most cheaply, as quickly bored.
1 – GENERAL
Steep is kinda radical sports, open world, action and multiplayer game. Quite a lot of stuff at the first glance, but this game is a sky, paraglide, snowboard and wingsuit simulator.
Not much of a story here. You go there, and you do that. You will climb up the ranking for sure, but there's not much of a plot here.
Graphics are incredible. You can literally stare at the landscape. Ubisoft is bad in a lot of stuff, but lately they simply make beautiful games I have to admit.
The soundtrack is very good. They have grasped the mood of each challenge and for a game that, at first glance, is here to pump adrenaline in someone who is sit on a chair, it can be very relaxing at some moments. I spent a lot of time in orientation challenges because they were incredibly peaceful and quiet.
2 – GAMEPLAY
I started the game and I was right there in the action. First minutes were bad, since I was trying to understand the controls, but after that I admit the game is very noob friendly, and quite challenging for those who simply want to give that extra effort. Controls are very simple and precise. I choose to play the game with a controller, it was much more simple. This game is a PC port from a console game, but I have any issue with that. The trick mechanics is very solid and easy to understand, but the game is not very realistic in some aspects. You can go 100 miles per hour against a stone or a tree and there's no problem, you simply get up with a pun. And the speed... my god, the speed.
Staring at the map is impressive, and that gives you the feeling of freedom of choice. OFC you will only go to the new events that you unlock when you progress, you will not explore a massive map on foot, so that is a bit useless, unless you are crazy.
You have an ingame store, mostly for peacocks, where you can customize your character. I miss some customization options on default, I admit. What I do not like is the fact of the paid season pass includes new and completely different sports, rocket wings. That's massive cash grab.
I'm not sure about the replay ability of this game, the game seems like it is his own replay.
Reviews are all over the place about content, so I'm here to save you. I do not know... for me the game was fresh and cool, I was always excited with new activities, but I admit that the game consists in going through rings and that's it.
Some sort of multiplayer is there. I've found some other players and that's cool. I've invited some to ride with me, one have accepted but the experience is not very different from playing alone.
3 – CONCLUSION
I do not like this type of games. I've notice in UPlay that it was on a free trial during the weekend so I just got it for 2 days. I was very impressed by it. I have tons of fun, and I've considered buying it then I check the price. Without any discount 60€ + 20€ from the season pass. It's too much. I would wait for a sale on this one, it's a impressive game with a massive price.
The paradoxically relaxing thrill of skiing, without getting cold and wet, without having to travel up into some distant mountains, and without having to do practice a bunch of stunt combos so you can beat this track to unlock the next one. This is the Far Cry 2 of extreme sports games.
Steep has managed to exceed my expectations, and now, after a long break, we finally have a triple-A game where you can shred down an Alpine mountain on a snowboard and fly using a wingsuit.
Was expecting more from that Game. You don't really get told what to do and you need levels to unlock new challenges and such. It's kinda boring, the controls (board movement) is weird and sometimes the character won't jump or turn. Not worth full price, not even half. 20€ worth at it's best.
Technically impressive open world in the Alps, but the winter sports simulation lacks long time motivation and diversity.
It offers an enjoyable trip to the snowing mountains with 4 different extreme sports to explore and challenges along the way. You can push your limits and become king of the mountain or just enjoy the ride through beautiful landscapes and majestic scenery. It’s not only for the fans, everyone could give it a go.
Dear fans of winter sports and speeding down a slope. Steep is a weak game that isn't worth your attention. The graphics are ugly, the technical side leaves a lot to be desired and the big open world is boring. Sure, it's not the worst game about skiing and snowboarding, but that's hardly a quote the developers want on the box, right?
Steep captures the essence of what makes Snowboarding among the other sports so bliss.
The Mountains are Massive! A Seemingly endless wonderland.
Im a Snowboard Instructor at my local playground in RL. Steep brings the feel of snowboarding to my PC perfectly. The mountains are majestic the snow is magnificent. The selection of gear, the great costumes and helmets, among many other customization options. Steep comes to life in so many ways. I dont know much about anything other than snowboarding but I love doing it all in game.
The Tricks in Steep are WAY better than Iv read about from other people, so much more realistic than other games like it. I couldnt do half the tricks you can do in Steep in RL. If you wanna know what kinda stuff you can do in game, check out the Snowboard Tricks Wiki online.
Steep has a lack of board brands but Im sure we could see more in the future. Right now they have Jones, Salomon, Nidecker, K2, and "Steep" snowboards. Id like to see them add Never Summer, Arbor, and Lib Tech just to name a few. I love snowboarding, as my job and for fun, Steep really brings me to the mountains at the comfort of my PC.
It doesn’t top the best snowboarding game ever made (Amped 3), but it does provide plenty of reasons to continue traveling the Alps. Should the trick system and technical issues be resolved in a sure to occur patch, Steep will become a must play. In its current state, however, it’s best to approach with caution.
Ubisoft deserves a round of applause for addressing the industry’s severe lack of snow sport games with something bold and ambitious. Steep might suffer from play value issues, but there’s nothing comparable. For the more than 10 million skiers and snowboarders around the world, this is a moment of liberation that should go recognized.
Sooo fun to plsy and have great soundtrack!!!! The ambientation is awesome and join with other is easy and intuitive....Could be better for sure, but is a GREAT GAME!!!!!!Enjoy the speed and sensation of FREEDOM!!!!!!
Played both betas when the game came out, and have to say I've been hooked from day 1. There were a few technical flaws, and the game control scheme can take some getting used to, but the released game is a masterpiece. It's the type of game that can be frustrating at first, but with practice is extremely fun and rewarding. The game offers 4 different sports (Skiing, Snowboarding, Paragliding, and Wing-suiting) which give the player different ways of exploring and tricking down the mountain. I don't have a problem with the fact that it's an online only game, but can see how it would be a problem for others who are not always connected to the internet. Those looking for the next SSX, arcade-style game will be disappointed. This game strives for a more realistic and scenic take on extreme snow games, where each run has to be approached strategically.
