This game claims to be all access worlds, but they are not, just as in any other snowboard game you ARE confined to the boards of the slope you are on! The graphics are lame and not cohesive. The game play is difficult and not easy to learn which leads to over an hour of tutorials just to learn the basics. Shawn Palmer's first edition was much better and is almost ten years old
Shaun White delivers a solid snowboarding experience. Like skiing out west after years of Eastern icy conditions: It's like breathing again. Now, comparisons to SSX On Tour are inevitable as SSX is the franchise that brought pixel snowboarding to life...SSX has much more action and grit; but that being said: Shaun White is a very pleasant day on the slopes. Think of it as social skiing: with friends. You can't really 'go-anywhere' as you might be used to. The tutorial mode is helpful in letting you know what keys to press. And when.
The trees are magical in Shaun White and I like that one may choose to make slow rolling curves, like GS cruisers on your board with the L2 and R2 buttons. Shaun White gets an 8 on a scale of 1-10 from me.
