  New games for monster Olympic action
Updated 21 January 2002, 16.04
Salt Lake 2002
In the run-up to the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City USA, and the UK cinema release of Monsters Inc., two major new games titles hit the shops this weekend.

The 19th Winter Olympics in Salt Lake start on 8 February and involve more than 2,300 athletes from 80 countries.

Warm up

To warm you up for the games, Sony have launched the official computer game of the Olympics - Salt Lake 2002 for Playstation 2 and PC.

It combines real simulations of Olympic slopes and places in the chilly US town and there are six snowy events to warm you up:

  • Snowboard Parallel
  • Giant Slalom
  • Curling Tournament
  • Alpine Skiing Downhilll
  • Ski Jumping K120
  • Individual and Two-man Bobsleigh

So there's just enough time to get some snowboarding practice in before watching the real thing!

Monster fun

Monsters Inc. for PlayStation 2 gives you a sneaky peek into the lives of the furry beasts made famous by the smash hit film.

The two main not-so-scary characters Mike and Sulley have to save their city, Monstropolis, from a massive energy crisis by collecting clues, learning new scare and joke tactics.

Which gives you a chance to get to know the monsters before the film hit the UK cinemas on 8 February.

And if you have managed to get your hands on either of these games, we'd love to hear what you think of them!
