    Not only is Road Trip competent, it’s full of character, with cartoon styling and gentle humour eschewing the too-cool, branding-heavy nature of its peers, while also being one of the console’s better looking titles. [Christmas 2008, p.101]

    Despite these issues, Road Trip makes a great party game (you can play co-op or versus with up to four people), and I highly recommend it for anyone looking to dust off their Balance Board. [Holiday 2008, p.84]
  3. It can't reach the heights of SSX or the first and second Amped, but what it lacks in precision, it makes up for in slightly mindless fun.

    Enjoyable and works well with the board, but lacking in thrills. [Christmas 2008, p.82]
  5. Unfortunately the huge potential that slumbers within a snowboard legend and a global publisher hasn’t been used. Shaun White is something for the hardcore boarder – only the balance-board-controls truly have their unique feeling.
  6. Not all that original, but the Balance Board makes it a unique prospect.
  7. Overall, Shaun White Snowboarding: Road Trip is a good entry in the genre that wisely chooses to build on the strengths of the platform rather then shoehorn another game into it.
  8. In a sport searching for the next big crazy trick, this game’s insistence on the basics only takes players so far.

    Wii has plenty of other titles that offer a few hours of undemanding fun. The abandoned potential of Road Trip is proof of what a wasteful approach that can be. [Christmas 2008, p.103]

    I just bought this game today, and so far it's great! The song track is good, and it satisfies my snowboarding needs. I live no where I just bought this game today, and so far it's great! The song track is good, and it satisfies my snowboarding needs. I live no where near snowboarding/skiing places, and this pretty much helps satisfy my craving to snowboard. Full Review »

    This game is a lot of fun. The art style really suits the Wii, as well. It's nice to see Ubisoft stepping up. The Balance Board This game is a lot of fun. The art style really suits the Wii, as well. It's nice to see Ubisoft stepping up. The Balance Board implementation is really good and adds a lot of depth to the game. Full Review »
