Overview

Shaun White's Snowboarding is a series of snowboard racing games that focus 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 down-hill 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.

The Wii created a new genre of motion-controlled video games. But it's initially Wii Remote controller was a little limited. Nintendo shortly brought out addition that added more one-to-one detection of movement: Motion Plus.

You could purchase the Motion Plus block and plug it into existing Wii Remote controllers, or purchase updated Wii Remote controllers that included Motion Plus. These newer controllers are indicated by the Motion Plus nomenclature on the bottom. This nuanced motion-controlled continued on to the Wii U in games that used the Wii Remote controls and needed extra fidelity for the player.
