Alpine Ski Racing 2007 is the sequel to both the Ski Racing series and RTL Ski Alpin 2006, but has overall more similarities to the latter. It's a downhill ski racing game. The game features three different difficulties and it comes with six game modes: slalom, giant slalom, super-g, downhill, free ride and speed-downhill.

RTL Biathlon 2009 is a simulation of the Biathlon sport. Like the real sport it is basically divided into two sections: skiing and shooting. During the skiing sections the player steers his athlete into the correct direction and watches his stamina. In the middle of the screen is a power bar which gets filled by holding the assigned button - if the bar is too low the athlete gets slow and if it is too high he gets tired. Practically this results in steady button pressing to keep it as high as possible. During the shooting sequences the player shoots on targets while the cursor is wobbling. He...
