The graphics are about par for a Wii game. Nothing is spectacular, but they're not bad either. Actually, they look pretty much exactly like the graphics did in We Ski & Snowboard that I reviewed about this time last year. In Mountain Sports, you have a choice of eight characters at the beginning, four male and four female, with four more characters that you can unlock as you play the game. Each of these characters also has the choice of different outfits, so you can somewhat find an athlete to represent you.
I really liked the way the scenery looked. I realize that the backgrounds and such are not ultra-realistic, but they are very clean and crisp. The spectators are pretty much faceless characters (at least I was too busy trying to stay on course to notice them), but they do cheer for you. The commentators will discuss your performance. Usually you can tell if you're going to make the time or not based on what they say. I do wish they had a few more lines though, as I felt like they were saying the same things over and over.
