I really wanted to like Shaun White's Snowboarding, which was released today for the 360, PS3, Wii, PSP, DS, and PC. After Skate revolutionized skateboarding games with it's intuitive and realistic gameplay, I wanted Ubisoft to do the same for the snowboarding genre. After all, it had been almost a decade since I spent an entire summer playing 1080 Snowboarding and Cool Boarders 3. That summer ultimately led to me buying a snowboard and having one of the most painful winters of my lifetime. And while that painful winter may have caused me to sell my snowboard and vow never to return to any snowladen hill for recreation again, I was eager to return to the less bruise inducing digital version of the sport."
