Almost there are no limits. If you can see it, you can visit it. The game itself warns you about it. There is an official route, a pre-established route, but nobody forces you to follow that path. Break the rules! Follow your instinct, that in the Alps, the brave ones have a much better time. A great idea, the holy grail for any sports fan, but that does not end up working as well as we would like
. It’s fun, of course, because there are few sensations more rewarding than sliding down a steep slope without really knowing what awaits you at the end of the journey; but as I explain in this review, Steep lacks a bit more complexity in his action.

There are many good things to extol. Experience, as such, is practically unique in the genre. I do not remember any sports video game that offers you such freedom of action; let you loose for a wide open world so you can enjoy as you want this great ad
