Wii Fit Games: Shaun White Snowboarding: Road Trip
There’s a good chance you know at least one adrenaline junky. If that’s the case, there’s also a good chance you have some admiration for that person. What kind of guts does it take to fly down a mountain at incredible speeds on nothing more than a simple board? Not only do you have to deal with other snowboarders and skiers, but also stumps, trees, icy patches, and maybe even an avalanche. It’s a daring and dangerous hobby, one that only some individuals have the grit or opportunity to take part in. That is, until now.
With the Shaun White Snowboarding: Road Trip for Wii game, you too will have an opportunity to hit the slopes at incredible speeds, dodging obstacles and performing outstanding tricks. An added bonus is that this game also offers a terrific workout. For many games, Wii accessories are optional but recommended. For this game, while it’s not required, you’d be out of your mind not to use the Wii Fit Balance Board. It’s possibly to play with only the wiimote, but the experience is so much better with the balance board.
This game makes you feel as though you’re on the mountain. This has been stated repeatedly by many people who snowboard regularly – even professionals. The Wii Fit Balance Board is very sensitive, which adds to the challenge and rush this game can offer. The sensitivity can be set to low, medium, or high, which makes this game a good option for anyone. Even senior citizens play this game and enjoy it. They never had a chance to go snowboarding in their lives. This is a great way for them to experience it. And with all the changeable music options, realistic sound effects, and beautiful scenery, it’s like the mountain has been brought to them. If you’re an experienced snowboarder, not to worry, you will find this game extremely challenging. Not only can you set the sensitivity to high, but you will also have to clear one slope in order to move on to the next location.
As far as movements go, lean forward to move faster, lean back to slow down, lean to the sides for direction, and bend your legs and spring up quickly to perform a jump. The most exhilarating aspect of this game is that you’re always moving. That constant adrenaline rush will only increase as you move from the slopes of Canada to the likes of Park City, Chile, Japan, and Switzerland. And all of this is done while traveling wit Shaun White and crew, which makes the game all the more fun.
