Play OverviewPlay Overview

Shaun White's Snowboarding (2008) is a series of snowboard racing games that focuses on recreating, move for move, the downhill and halfpipe snowbound experience. You race down a mountain landscape steering with intuitive controls and performing point-earning tricks.

Drawing on the success of Family Ski/We Ski that used motion controls and the Wii balance board, Shaun White's Snowboarding takes the fun in a more sporting and mature direction. The two Wii versions of the game, Shaun White Snowboarding: Road Trip and Shaun White Snowboarding World Stage, offer strong motion controls and multiplayer modes that are great for families. You can play with up to four people each using either a Wii Remote on its own or adding the BalanceBoard from Wii-fit for one of the players. You can also use the Motion Plus add-on to make the controls more accurate.

The main game is a series of challenges ranging from speed runs, token collecting or tricks. Each slope has a number of different levels like this and is revisited at different points in the game. There are also half-pipe levels that introduce more trick-focused events. But new in Shaun White's Snowboarding World Stage is the inclusion of these halfpipe elements within a downhill slope.

Whereas Road Trip only had one other boarder to race, World Stage offers up to six computer-controlled opponents, in addition to the four human players, to create a much greater sense of competitive racing.
