IGN: Shaun White Skateboarding Review

IGN can’t help but chuckle at the irony of Shaun White Skateboarding, a game that presents an uninspired world yet its biggest failing is a total lack of inspiration. The quest objectives are hopelessly boring and the originally cool concept of shaping is restricted too heavily in single-player. It also doesn’t help that this game’s main concept (the skateboarding), takes a backseat to a story that isn’t very impactful in its delivery or with its characters. Shaun White Skateboarding might appeal to those starved for a different slant on traditional skating games, but everyone else is poised for serious disappointment.

Redundant statement is redundant.

IGN is really going low this year...

Although this is the way it should always be, in my opinion. Except they should replace the "Meh" with an "Average" alongside the 5.0 score.

Anyways, leaving that aside:

Can't wait for the imminent Call of Duty: Black Ops perfect review with EDITOR'S CHOICE and other stuff.

Now that WILL be hilarious.

Anyways, reviews are always opinions. Even when they shouldn't be.

ohh come on dude, we all know call of duty: black ops will deserve 100% the millions of 10's it will receive:)

I truly think this game deserves an 7/8 out of 10 cause it seems playable and that concept of shaping seems really fun to use (even if the singleplayer lacks much of it) but still seems fun since the gameplay is more arcade than simulation.

big_silky2976d ago

did anybody honestly expect this to be great?

Bass_fisherman2976d ago

No but a good average game at least and this is below that by IGN standards.

Fishy Fingers2976d ago

5.5/10 is actually just above average. Reviews are almost pointless this gen, well, the numvber value (which is what the majority only read), it might as well be 6-10/10.

I miss old Tony Hawks, and GRIND SESSION

soundslike2976d ago
