Conclusion: Lollipop Chainsaw is not a long game, though it isn't quite as short as some would lead you to believe. A first run through the game will last about six hours, padded out with the seemingly obligatory turret section that painfully rears its head in every Suda game. Lollipop Chainsaw is designed to be replayable, with two additional difficulty levels that switch up the arrangement of zombie hordes.
Excerpt: Snowboarding used to be all the rage in video games. Cool Boarders on the original PlayStation and 1080 on the N64 were both must own titles for their respective platforms, and later SSX proved that people couldn't get enough of insane jumps and ridiculous tricks. Then, along came Amped to show that a sim approach could work and the third game in the series made for a solid Xbox 360 launch title.
Entertaining snowboarding game with good replayablity.

Summary: Parents need to know that there is only some mild violence in the game, such as crashing into other boarders or causing them to fall by tossing snowballs at them. Suggestive references occur during a couple of dialogue sequences, such as "easy girls" in the lodge. Some lyrics in the songs could be offensive because they contain references to drugs and sex ("one night stand"), and profane words.The game can be played online, something Common Sense Media does not recommend...
Excerpt: Shaun White (also known as The Flying Tomato—seriously) is arguably the most famous snowboarder in the world. Following the lead of other extreme sports luminaries Dave Mirra, Tony Hawk and Kelly Slater, White has now lent his name and likeness to a video game. Apparently built using the Assassin’s Creed engine, Shaun White Snowboarding certainly looks impressive, with smooth crisp lines, realistic rider and board animations and four impressively realised mountains.
Conclusion: Snowboarding to find coins to start the game is not my cup of tea. Out of all the extreme sport games Shaun White Snowboarding takes way too long to officially start the game? The controls are way too clunky to even want to find all the coins. This game is not going to revive snowboarding games; this game is going to make sure that this extreme sport stays on the television.
Conclusion: Overall Shaun White Snowboarding is a very good game, also a very fun game. The game plays more on the realistic side but yet it didn’t take me very long to get the hang of the basics. The mountains in the game are huge and you can explore just about every inch of them. And once you make it to the bottom, all you have to do is take the ski-lift or chopper back to the top and go at it again. Of course the game has it’s problems, what game doesn’t?
Pros: Massive mountains that you can fully explore with the game’s open world gameplay. You have the ability to get off and on your board on the fly. Graphics are nice, draw distance is really good as well. Overall great soundtrack!
Cons: If you are not into snowboarding, there’s no point in playing the game. Nailing some of the big tricks can be difficult. Controls will take some getting used-to to fully master. The game had a few glitches with the NPC’s and does have some clipping problems. The game does require you to travel quite alot.
Excerpt: Snowboarding has always been a genre that translated well to videogames. It is therefore quite surprising to see the first snowboard game for the HD consoles arriving three years after the release of the 360 (two years after the PS3 first saw the light). As a big snowboarding fan, both in real life and in games, I couldn't wait to get my hands on Shaun White Snowboarding.
