Enter a snowboarding world of total freedom. You can create your own experience in this game, and choose when, where, how, and with whom you want to ride. Developed in close collaboration with Olympic Gold Medalist Shaun White - the most successful snowboarder in the history of the sport - Shaun White Snowboarding is the next-gen game that redefines the action sports genre.

Open World Mountains. Choose how you ride in open-world mountains across the world: conquer the extreme peak conditions, create your own paths in the back country, or compete with fellow riders in the terrain parks.

Your Friends Always Around. Play in a world where your friends are always around. Do your own runs on mountains populated by real gamers, or join your friends for a quick session from anywhere in the mountains.

    More than Just Snowboarding. Have fun with your friends on and off the board: throw snowballs, hike to access secret spots, film your friends doing crazy tricks. You can also upload your videos online to share with the world.

      Ride Your Way. Express yourself through tricks, riding styles, and highly customisable avatars - both in single-player and in the online world. Use the intuitive dual analog control to pull off a huge variety of tricks that express your style.

        Next-Gen Technology. Built on the Assassin's Creed engine, this game creates a massive world with gorgeous visuals and realistic NPC interaction. This is also the first time a snowboarding game is completely driven by physics instead of animation.

          Authentic Snowboarding. Ubisoft has worked closely with Shaun White to infuse the gaming experience with authenticity, personality, and humour. Shaun is a friend and mentor in the game, and will help you with your skills. And if you are deemed worthy, you may even be able to play him in the game...

           A more mature spin on snowboarding

          | | See all PeteWattsUk's reviews (12)

          Unlike previous attempts such as Amped 3 or the SSX Tricky to recreate the thrill of snowboarding which tuned into the sub culture and "zanyness' of the sport, Shaun White attempts a more mature approach whilst having the odd passing resemblance to the more outlandish take on snowboarding.

          This game rewards patience and exploration, it has an initial emphasis on finding a collecting coins which gradually provide outlandish powers evolving the game away from its more humble sensible start. This will not be to everyones liking - as Banjo has taking cart racing and turned it into a platformer, so Shaun White has taken snowboarding and done the same.

          It also has an excellent online 'Burnout Paradise' approach to multiplayer which as with most of the game gets better the more you put into it. Get a group of mates online and you can have a blast. The online community at time of writing seem to reflect the more adult approach and itys refreshing to go online and not have a wave of 12- 16 year old singing, swearing and generally acing like teenagers for a change.

          So if your a gamer who liked skate, or amped 3 and is happy to chat online and share tips etc with other snowboading fans then this is well worth an investment.

          If however you like snowboarding games that let you jump miles high, have fireworks in the sky as you perform impossible moves and use the term Rad, Stoked or wacky every few seconds then give this a miss.

          An excellent if short soundtrack rounds off a game that will probably be overlooked by those craving an instant hit. But dig a littler deeper and you wont be dissapointed. Once the thrilll of killing Locust has worn off I know this will have the longevity to stay on my hard drive for many months.

           Good But Only With FRIENDS!

          This game is stunning apart from parts when you have to look at shuan white but that aside the visuals are amazing, and being a snowboarder my self the feel is just right.

          many people hated on this game because its not in a ssx style, this is a realistic game when it comes to what you can do, obviosuly some things are abit out there like collecting coins n stuff.

          but overall its good, the main purpose seems slightly lost as all you seem to be focused on is gettin coins for shaun, this gets boring quickly, its only when you play online that this game comes to life, theres nothing better than throwing snowballs at your mates, jumping off chair lifts and making bets with your chums on an event (winner takes all) and seeing them get caught up in an avalanche as you ride to victory.

          Overall id give this game a 7.5 out of ten, its good but its even better when your messing around on the mountin with your friends.

           How was this game even released?

          I don't see how anyone could enjoy this game. They used the physics engine from Assasins Creed to make this game, and whoever decided that was a good idea must have had something wrong with them. It just doesn't work, you have to fight with the controls to make them work, not that you have much control. It feels so jerky and unresponsive, you are rarely going in the direction you want to.

          The game gives you no help at the start, no tutorial, nothing at all. You have to work out the controls yourself, but that isn't hard, but it has a strange layout (right trigger to jump?). The game doesn't seem to have any structure to it at all. There is some mention of doing something with Shaun himself at the beginning but after the intro movie nothing more seems to be said of it. It seems that you have to go around collecting these 3 coin things that are scattered around the mountain, I did that and nothing happened. Nothing is explained to you and the game generally doesn't seem to have any direction at all.

          The achievements on this game are rediculous as well, I've played the game for a good few hours, so wanting for it to get better, but it never happened. In all this time I have never got a single achievement. When I look through the list of the requirements for them they were either things like "complete every of this type of challenge" or the descriptions were vauge and made no sense, such as "gain respect on this mountain".

          Overall it just doesn't entertain and leaves you feeling like you have wasted your time and money, which you have. If you want a decent snowboarding game on the 360 the only thing that's really out is Amped 3. It's old but it's still loads of fun.

           Awesome Game - if your a Fan of Amped 2 buy this!

          This game when you first start playing is not very good (its like Forza 2, really boring untill you get a decent car and tune it up), but persavier complete shauns tasks, build up your money and buy better boards and the game really picks up.

          Ignore other reviews that slate this game as those people havent even tried to get into it.

           Absolutely Awesome!

          Wow, I love this game! I've been waiting for a great snow boarding game on the xbox 360 for some time now and I'm glad to say that Shaun White Snowboarding definately fits the bill.

          Great Hi Definition Graphics! Fun game play (it took me back to my SSX days!) Awesome career mode and really fun multiplayer as well. I paid £49.99 for mine when it first came out but I still think it was well worth it! If you love extreme sports/Snow boarding, you will not be disapointed!
