  • Summary: Players hit the slopes with Shaun White and his crew, but this time the stakes are higher as you pursue the world's top competitions from a half-pipe in the middle of New York's Time Square to the most prestigious competitions of France, Canada and Japan. Players break out their Balance Boards once again for Shaun White Snowboarding: World Stage when they flex their board skills either alone or together with family and friends. [Ubisoft] Expand

  1. Snowboarding fans, both of the arcade and simulation variety, would do well to pick up this title.
  2. With existing content that is still great and a new stunt creation feature that is awesome and amazing, Shaun White Snowboarding: World Stage is a great sequel to a really great game.
  3. Apart from MotionPlus support, there isn't a whole lot new in World Stage. Ubisoft has certainly played it safe with a short and unimaginative campaign. But it's hard to knock the Balance Board controls-they totally make the Shaun White experience, and make it a pleasure to revisit the virtual slopes, sameness and all.

    World Stage is a little too similar to the original Wii title, but for the fans and the newcomers, it's a fun and slick game to try out.
  5. Shaun White Snowboarding: World Stage manages to convince on the looks en variety part but seriously lacks on a distinctive gameplay-style. The controls in combination with the Wii Balance Board are a bit hard to master for those who are inexperienced boarders. Luckily the Wii-controller on it’s own works just fine, which is a big plus for anyone looking for a snowboard experience on the Wii.
  6. Snowboarding stood out on Wii by taking a different approach to style, content, and (obviously) controls compared to other platforms. Unfortunately, not much has changed in this iteration, despite Wii MotionPlus support and a career mode in which you slowly climb the ranks to become number one. [Holiday 2009, p.85]

    While not flawed, it's devoid of substance. For the rest of us, there are superior options -- from this generation as well as the last -- to indulge in armchair snowboarding thrills.

    World Stage is dope. I like it better than the last game, which I gave an 8 (I liked it a lot and am glad I played it, but this game is so much better). As a snowboarding game it Collapse

    Zoom down the slopes and take on those half pipes. Earn your way to the top of the world stage! This is like a worldwide circuit for points, and it

    Nice job on this one! Road Trip was a good first try, but World Stage utilizes the Balance Board better and adds Motion Plus to the mix, even allowing you to create your own tricks. It Expand

    Shaun White knocks it out of the park with his latest game. I got this as an early gift for the holidays and have been playing it for 2 weeks. Not only has it held my attention this whole time, but it gets better as you go through the competitions and reach tougher challenges. This is a fine game, especially for sports game fanatics like me. Expand
