  1. It's a half-decent game at a bargain price. Which doesn't, unfortunately, make it a wholly good game to actually play. [Mar 2009, p.96]
  2. The game is stuck between being a dry simulation and an arcade-style game. It’s a weird mix without a lot of long time motivation. Some missions are too hard, the controls are not well done and it can get boring quite fast.
  3. The good news is that it's the best snowboarding game in existence. Unfortunately it's also the bad news. Admittedly, riding off the trail, jumping over gorges and narrowly escaping the avalanches is lots of fun, but it barely makes up for burdensome assignments that are forced upon the player. [Mar 2009]
  4. Soundtrack, multiplayer and touch of freedom are the greatest pros of this new snowboarding game. Unfortunately, you'll find too many backlogs during the course of game to fully enjoy the white slopes. [Issue#174, Jan 2009]
  5. Shaun White Snowboarding is at once the unfortunate victim of our towering expectations and the hapless result of a sloppy port. We've been waiting so long now for some decent snow, hopefully a more polished sequel will see us back on the slopes next season. [February 2009, p.60]
  6. With no visceral thrills and little reward from exploration, this becomes something of an empty shell, or perhaps a wonky snowman - likely to vanish from memory with the first rays of sunshine. [Feb 2009, p.70]
  7. To anyone less than a die-hard, PC-playing Shaun White fan: wait for budget. [Issue#16, p.64]
  8. Handling is fiddly too, on both control pad and keys, and it doesn't feel as fun to play as Tony's series. [Apr 2009, p.70]

    This game is great. It has a few kinks, but better than any other snowboarding game. Better than the other consoles (opinion).

    Buggy as hell. Gamebreaking drops in frame-rate basically kill any enjoyment you should be getting out of a snowboarding arcade style game. ABuggy as hell. Gamebreaking drops in frame-rate basically kill any enjoyment you should be getting out of a snowboarding arcade style game. A pathetic console port of the worst magnitude. Full Review »
