I was very disappointed with this game. Everyone knows Shawn White from snowboarding on television. He competes in all of the biggest events all over the world. So why am I stuck with riding the same 4 mountains? I thought the mountains were poorly designed for game play, and the actual playing of the game was ridiculously redundant. On another "bad" note. The controls were terrible. In a snowboarding or skateboarding game you should never have the spin control serve as the steer control. This makes for very annoying unnecessary crashes. I thought the focus powers were a little unnecessary as well. When it came down to it, I thought I was playing a watered down, less fun version of SSX Tricky.

I really liked the game Shaun Palmer's Pro Snowboarder. It had good music too. But this game, I can't even figure out the controls. You can't speed yourself up, you don't get much air at all. I played it for a very very short time. I gave up trying to play it. The graphics are decent, but doesn't make up for the lack of good gameplay. And I would really rather play 1080, Coolboarders and Shaun Palmer's, so that's pretty sad on this game's behalf.
I was really looking forward to this game but the controls are the worst I have seen in a long time and the only way I would be able to finish this game is if I was locked in a cage with it for 10 years. It's awful.
