This highly configurable game lets you experience the thrill of ski jumping without the risk of broken bones. Deluxe Ski Jump 3's 3D graphics are detailed and well-done, and the ability to choose from multiple camera angles really helps add some variety.
However, until you get the hang of controlling your jumper, we'd suggest sticking with the side-angle or behind-skier views. Maneuvering your character is done completely with the mouse, but as we mentioned before, landing a successful, high-scoring jump requires patience and practice. In terms of features, Deluxe Ski Jump excels. For starters, you can change the color of virtually every piece of your skier's uniform, right down to the bindings.
You also get tools for adjusting the game's gamma, brightness, contrast, and volume levels. Deluxe Ski Jump 3 lets you compete against a computerized or human opponent. The demo only will let you access four hills, but you can opt for a summer-theme jump. We also should note that during installation, you should select the box for configuring the game settings; otherwise, you'll get an error message. Winter-sports fans willing to invest some time will be glad they downloaded this game.
Deluxe Ski Jump 3 is an addictive ski jumping game in full 3D graphics. Compete with all your friends at 32 unique hills in the world cup or team cup events. In DSJ3 Online you can jump and chat with other ski jumping fans from all around the world. Successful playing requires a steady mouse hand, quick reflexes and ability to fully utilize the air flows.
If you are good enough you can even make it to the Web based DSJ3 ranking lists. Version 1.5 may include unspecified updates, enhancements, or bug fixes.
