Shaun White Snowboarding allows players to enter a world of total freedom, where they can create their own experience and choose how, where, and with whom they want to ride.
Shaun White Snowboarding: Road Trip was built on the Assassins Creed engine and utilizes the Wii Balancing Board very well, but it is hard to grasp at first. While in the air, you will need to lean and shift your weight in order to perform some high-air tricks. Of course, there are different characters to choose from, who all of their own strenghts and weaknesses. For instance, one may be able to get more hang time than the other, while one may have more balance performing tricks. In order to find talented Shaun White, you will have to move all over the globe, going to five different countries! Each track has their own unique designs, gaining you attribute points along the way. The scenery in the Wii version of the game is very good, with tons of trees, while the tracks have a lot of rails. Of course, there is a co-op mode, as well as multiplayer. Can you and your buddy rack up enough points in co-op mode? Are you the best online snowboarder in the world? Prove it using the multiplayer mode. Whether you're using the Balance Board or the Wii Mote, this game has a pretty good amount of gameplay in it.
