If I remember correctly, the last snowboarding game that was received well was probably SSX 3 (give use SSX4, damn it!) so Shaun White Snowboarding: Road Trip has a lot to prove before it flies off of shelves.
With the current drought of good Wii games on the market, and the large demand for a spiritial successor to the SSX series, could Shaun White Snowboarding: Road Trip be the game to finally bring Nintendo out of it's slump? Could it be just as good as Nintendo hyped it up to be half a year ago?"
