Somewhere in the sub-zero temperatures of Vancouver, athletes from around the world gather to compete for shiny medals. The recent game from SEGA that accompanies the event has prompted us to call to mind other games that feature the cold white stuff. So, grab a duvet, a warm mug of your favourite hot drink, and join us as we take a look at the Top 10 Games With Snow.

Modern Warfare 2

In war, snow has far more practical purposes than those seen in the Olympics. The ‘Cliffhanger' level of Modern Warfare 2 sees Roach Sanderson infiltrate a military base in the midst of a raging blizzard. It may be cold, but the storm offers a welcome cloak of invisibility, and enemies are oblivious to your presence right up until the moment you plunge your knife into the side of their neck.

Sonic the Hedgehog 3

Back in 1993, Sonic the Hedgehog could be found speeding down the snowy slopes of the Ice Cap Zone on a snowboard. With its glistening blue and white scenery, frequent avalanches and ice-cool retro soundtrack, the Ice Cap Zone was one of the first video game levels to successfully capture the concept of cold. Since then, snow-themed levels have appeared with alarming frequency in platform titles.
