by Nazih Fareson December 12, 2017
Oh Steep… A game I really wanted to like when it was reviewing it, but it was the bugs, worrisome camera angles, the illegible map and mostly the cheesy narrator that ticked me off, so here I am now with the first major expansion of the game: Steep: Road to the Olympics.
