Shaun White Snowboarding: World Stage
14 November 2013
Conclusion: 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. The game is much harder to recommend if you can't play it with a Balance Board, though.
Excerpt: There are approaching 20 games that support Wii MotionPlus, Nintendo's precision-enhancing add-on. But none of them, I'd wager, do so quite as disappointingly as Shaun White Snowboarding: World Stage, the sequel to last year's fun Shaun White Snowboarding: Road Trip. The only feature to make use of it is the new create-a-trick mode, which, according to the back of the box, is all "thanks to the MotionPlus".
Summary: Parents need to know that Shaun White Snowboarding: World Stage is a snowboarding game featuring professional snowboarder and Olympic champion, Shaun White. The game has players perform tricks, win events and prizes, and progress through a career. Boarders can spill or run into each other, but there are no serious injuries. One background song contains a cuss word and another references alcohol.
Conclusion: Shaun White Snowboarding: World Stage for Wii is another quality boarding title. However, the few improvements don't add up to a lot more than what was available last year; this really isn't a very inspired sequel. As such, owners of Road Trip need not shell out the dough for this newest version.
Excerpt: Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few years, you've undoubtedly heard of Shaun White. With a self-branded videogame franchise and three Olympic gold and X-Games titles under his belt, he has once again teamed with Ubisoft to bring snowboarding to the masses. With its charming aesthetic and cheeky cast of characters, White Snowboarding: World Stage provides an amusing snowboarding distraction for those who might not want to spend hours falling on the...
Pros: you are willing to pay a premium for an pseudo-expanion to last year's title or just love that adorable ginger boy.
Cons: you can wait a year for a beefier sequel, a better competitor or a trip to Colorado Springs.
Conclusion: the Wii but ultimately it’s about catching air in the snow and that all works very well. I played the game both with the controller and with the balance board. Although the controller can be a tad bit easier, I found the board to give the better overall experience and I think the developers really nailed the experience using it. number 100 and need to work your way up the ranks.
Excerpt: Shaun White is the best snowboarder in the world. His 2006 gold medal for Team USA in Torino, Italy cemented that fact. But with the Olympics still a month away, the high-flying White still has a bit of time to focus some attention on the game industry.
Pros: Some pretty sweet events., Great split-screen multiplayer., Snowboarding moves simplified on balance board.
Cons: Career mode is short., Game may be too childish for sim fans., Not too much new from last year's game.
