Pocket Gamer writes: "Brave climbers who challenge an ascent up Everest endure some of the harshest weather on the planet. Frigid temperatures and unpredictable snowstorms work fast to drain a climber's energy. For many, the best way to fuel-up is to munch on frozen sticks of butter. What normally would got straight to the gut is instantly turned into precious heat, the body absorbing the fat in an effort to survive.
Everest: Hidden Expedition is equally as slick and bland as one of those frozen butter sticks. While the static scenes feature slick detailing and plenty of colour, the lack of variety in gameplay keeps things pretty flat."
