Shaun White Snowboarding Road Trip
Great Party Game
This game is just unbelievable! Like others have said, the graphics are meant to be cartoonistic, and that makes it fun for the whole family. But I don't have any kids, its just me and a few friends playing it, we make it a great party game because it has a bit of difficulty to it, we take a lot of turns back and forth. It is a challenging game, but with a bit of skill, and luck, and perseverance, and maybe the help of your friends, you move on to new levels. I haven't beaten the game yet, but i'm hoping with some time and more leg muscles i will get there. If your looking for a workout, this is one of the funnest workout wii games Ive found. You use your stomach muscles more than you think trying to grind and carve your way through each level. I believe it works better than wii fit or the active, but that's probably because its alot more fun, so i play it more. Get a big tv, some friends and have a great time with a wonderful game!
BEST GAME EVER!!!!!!!!!!!
This is one of the best wii board games ever. The camera angle is great. it sicks with you always and is the main angle used in a lot of third party games. The challenge is excellent For me its pretty easy(Im already at chillewithen a half-hour) but i played the wii fit snowboarding salom 11 times. for first time wii board users get ready it is pretty hard to master if it is your first time. i'll give controls a 9 because the wii fit board can be kinda annoying but is still fun. graphics are kinda cartoony but hey its for the wii. inter face is okay. sound is alright but i expected to much. it still sounds like i riding the mountain but it did not reach my expectancy. statics are okay i guess. team/player is okay but there aren't many team wide things variety not so much there are slopes big air back country races and salomes. but they have there differences. I would defiantly recommend this game to wii fans. oh yea you do NOT have to have the wii board you can just use the wii remote. BUY THIS GAME ITS AWSOME!
The Flying Tomato
The Flying Tomato finally makes his debut in a video game and it is a good one. This is one of the funner games on Wii. I am not an owner of the balance board but you can still have fun without it. The graphics in this game are pretty good, but you cant denounce them. There supposed to look a little cartoon like, not real people looking like the 360 or PS3. The story is pretty fun too. You travel he world picking up new friends along the way trying to catch up with Shaun who is always getting distracted with something and is always taking detours. Finally you meet up with him in the US after traveling to Canada, China, Swiss Alps, The himalayas and more. And each area has its own personality. You'll take on different courses like half pipes and steep mountain sides. But I dont want to spoil it all! This game is a must get for the Wii. Join the Rod Trip.
got the game
Just picked up the game today at Gamestop. This is the first time I bought a Wii version over the PS3. It works well with the balance board - there is a slight learning curve but when you get the hang of it, it works well. It is more responsive than I thought it would be.
super fun if you love shaun white and extreme sports :p its challenging and a workout ! so i hope you have fun playing it :]
Alright But Not Great.
Well I got this game for Christmas and I have to say the story line isn't great. Pretty much you snowboard through a few 2 minute parts then you get a new character and a phone call from shaun white and that's as far as I've gotten on the story line and I've unlocked 3 new locations. Normal controls with the controller is fine it's actually pretty fun, but the wii fit is a huge challenge, deffinantly something to get used to. Would not recommend Wii fit on harder challenges. I like that the developers new they couldn't match Xbox 360 graphics and went with an animated design. Music is awsome great bands from Audioslave to Sweet. A desently fun game but not amazing. If you are a fan of the Tony Hawk games for ps2 or xbox THIS IS NOTHING LIKE THAT. The only similarities to a Tony Hawk game would be great music. I give this game a 7/10.
Waste of $$$$$$$
This game is AWESOME at first but it gets pathetic at the end. If you have a lot of time and patience as i said for endless ocean, you will succeed. It takes practice especially for the snowy half pipes. Id say this game is almost worth the money you pay. Don't get it new...its way to expensive, this game is better for the playsation than wii. there are many lands or countries you go to to accomplish goals like scoring 6000 points or finding soda cans on the slope. you usually can accomplish or get to everyland but Japan is very hard. there is half pipes spit in to two parts and it gets really hard to score point. Im more of a simulation person so this game was just okay. there are great controls and tricks but still not worth the money. the statistics about each rider are very good
Pretty cool after you get a hang of the controls
I'm a big SSX fan and bought all the games on my XBox and then my Wii, but the product was getting stale after a while. Now SWSB comes out as a breath of fresh air mostly because of the controls with the Wii Board. For sure it takes a while to get used to it. Just like in real life snowboarding, if you aren't balanced properly or leaning toward a side too much, you pretty much lose control of your character. After a while you get used to it and start pulling tricks and feeling more comfortable. I still got a neck cramp from always looking over my left shoulder. The main complaint I have about the controls is with the Wii board itself, it is too small for taller people. As for looks and sounds, it's pretty cool, good soundtrack mixing old and new, ok characters and storyline (aimed toward teens more than 30 something people like me but still good), and good speed effects when you lean. People will probably complain that you don't get to customize your character much, but pimping cars and boarders is getting a bit old in my taste. The graphics are typical good Wii graphics but the PS3 and X360 fans would probably complain about them. All in all, it's fun, it's cool and worth a try. Enjoy the slopes!
dont waste your time and$$$$$$$$$$$
I got the game for Christmas I was so excited to play it so i skipped all of my presents and went to the wii but i was so mad to find out that the stupid game lasted me about an hour not even. when you beat all the countries everything turns into unlocked so its not a challenge then i found out that my parents spent like 60.00$ that is stupid
Snowboarding has to be one of THE coolest sports out there and even though there's a bunch of SSX games already (which are all really awesome and you don't get tired of them), this should be awesome as well, especially for the Wii since SSX Blur is really fun. You just can't get tired of snowboarding, I so want this game!
