Shaun White Snowboarding (PS3)
Top customer reviews
There is free-riding, big air competitions, avalanches, jibbing and loads of tricks to master. Tricks are not easy, if they were then what would there be to master? You will have no problems doing basic twists, turns and grabs.
The main on-line review complaints are that you don't get a sense of speed and it is not as good as SSX. I promise you none of this is true. It is unfair to compare it to SSX as they are completely different games. I loved SSX and 1080 on the N64, but for me this is the best of the 3. It is the one that has captured the mountain the best.
If you are one of those people who only gets away once a year to snowboard, then this game will really bring the mountain to you. You will be amazed at the level of detail. There are lots of nice touches such as boarding down to the ski-lifts, which you can ride all the way up if you like, heli-drops, half-pipe, powder, ice-rattle on the board, an amazing expanse of terrain, buying new gear, a fantastic music score and of course some great snowboarding experiences with your friends...I could go on.
Take it from me, you need this game, but you also need online play to experience it as it should be played. Quite why reviews give it a pasting is beyond me - it gets 8.5 out of 10 for me. I think some people simply don't get it. I remember a lot of reviewers didn't 'get' GTA III and gave it a pasting.
In summary, if you snowboard and you want a game that captures the mountains, plus you like hanging out with your friends, this is the game for you.
ADDITION: Been playing this longer than a week now, its FAST.Read more ›
major flaw is tho that the hills are way to small -eg : it takes 5mins TOPS to reach the buttom, and this is where i miss the ssx 25mins long boarding style.
other than that its a great game and it looks awesome.
The graphics are very good and the general snowboarding environment etc is in fact well designed. The game has loads of potential that is simply not used. You have 5 countries to slide down but unless you just want to go from top to bottom (which gets boring after a few attempts) then you will be disappionted. There is not much else to do. You can go and hunt for icons to hit which trigger challenges (if you find them that is) and these offer nothing in the way of fun. Why no competions or races or some form of structure to the game. All this gives you is a free roam on a snowy mountain which you will have your fill of in one evening.
On-line consists of a few people dicking about. Whoopee!
Avoid and save your money for the forthcoming SSX game.

This is one of those games that I bought knowing that I could hop in and out of without needing to know any background story, without needing to take time to adjust and settle in... Read morePublished on 4 Jun. 2015 by Dominoe
