5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!, 26 Dec 2011

= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Ski Region Simulator (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
Ski Region Simulator. Sounds boring, doesn't it? You'd be wrong. Seriously wrong. GIANTS has again excelled themselves in making a realistic and fun simulation.
You start off with two ski lifts, one slope and one vehicle. To begin with, you have to "Groom" the slopes, using a Snow Groomer. This is not actually as boring as it sounds, and a well groomed slope is more likely to make more revenue!
When you have finished grooming the first slope, (or even in the middle of doing so) you may see (unless you have switched it off) a mission appear. To complete this mission, you must first (if you have not already) buy a snowmobile and the two types of transport sled. (Object Transport and Passenger Transport) When you have done this, you must then hook up your sled to your snowmobile, drive to the place where you pick up the object or person, then drive to either the destination highlighted with a green circle on the map, or drive to the Rescue Centre (In the case of a person).
Overall, this game is very well made. Here are some Pros and Cons.
Pros:
Large & Detailed Map
Realistic Vehicles
Mini-games to keep you busy
Loads of Mods (Modifications)
Realistic People
"Synchronizing" Times Improved (Multiplayer)
Very Difficult to crash

Cons:
Shadows only generated a certain way ahead of you
Mini-games are all the same (but still fun)
Not enough Fuel Stops
Some Multiplayer Bugs (Being fixed in patches)

So, overall, I think that this game DOES deserve its five star rating. Although it can be tedious sometimes, it'll keep you busy for hours on end.
