Shaun White Snowboarding for PC

By on February 24, 2011

After I met Shaun White in New Zealand (See the Pic Below), I decided that I should probably check out his latest snowboarding game. My conclusion? Creating a good snowboarding game is hard!!!  I’ve tried playing all sorts of snowboarding games in the past – cool boarders, 1080 snowboarding just to name a couple.. and although they can be mildly entertaining they always seem to end up being just another race game.

Shaun White Snowboarding is somewhat better, but not amazing. I really enjoyed the concept of being able to freeride the mountain so that you could find any hits, jibs and rails you want… but it is just lacking in execution.

While I was playing I never really felt as though I was snowboarding, but rather kind of hovering above the ground.

My Conclusions? I’d give Shaun White Snowboarding for PC a 3/5, but with an extra gold star for innovating with the free-ride mode of the game. Hopefully the next version keeps the good and improves the riding experience and gets closer to what the Tony Hawk game series is for Skateboarding.
