GameSpot writes: "Shaun White is a real person. He is famous for riding boards (of both the skate and snow variety) and winning medals in international competitions. The snowboarding game to which he has lent his name seems to take place in the real world, where gravity limits how high you can jump and what sort of tricks you can pull off. Unfortunately, Shaun White Snowboarding too often breaks away from this realistic depiction. The activities you'll be competing in so wildly clash with the actual sport that this feels more like a poorly conceived platformer than an exciting sporting extravaganza. Because of the dichotomy between real-life actions and fantasy land adventuring, Shaun White's first game is choppy, unfocused, and way too aggravating to be fun".
