So I am a big fan of the Wii and its innovation to the gaming world so when I heard this game uses the Wii fit board as a control I was all in. So overall Shaun White Snowboarding Road Trip was a fun game but not a great game. The controls worked well and it was fun to use the Wii fit balancing board to make it feel like your really snowboarding. The games art style and story did its work for the game but is not at all anything special. The main flaw in this game it that it just gets redundant really fast. Since your most likely only going to have one Wii Fit Board multiplayer is limited and really there is little player to player interaction (you cant directly effect the other person). The tricks are also realistic but personally I prefer the classic tony hawk games where you can grind everything and unrealistic but freaking awesome combos. Shaun White falls under the category that more realistic does not equal more fun. Also as you wonder about the title of this blog by now, So I saw my friend playing this cool snowboarding game and I asked what it was. To my surprise it was Shaun White Snowboarding. I will not to begin to rant on how watering down good games to make Wii games out of them is a crime to gaming humanity, but instead say get Shaun White Snowboarding for Xbox 360 and have a lot more fun.
I love this game that you can change the sensitivity of the balance board it helps you get more control. I wish there were more characters to choose from, you can only choose from 2 characters, one boy & one girl. Maybe as you advance through the game you get more players but we have not gotten there yet.
Overall the game is decent, making good use of the balance board. Doing tricks in air were fairly easy. The only control problem I had was getting the board to respond to left-right movements while on the ground, could be better. Definantly a rent before buy game. Fun to play, but I would not buy.
