Even though most games based on celebrities fail miserably, we're hoping that Shaun White Snowboarding reminds us of the good ol' days of SSX from last generation. You know, back when snowboarding games were good. Here's the extended TV advertisement for the title, and we have to admit, this one doesn't look half-bad. Besides, if you're a fan of the sport, you don't have many options sitting out there on store shelves. Provided they get the controls right and there aren't a whole lot of technical issues, Shaun White Snowboarding could be just the ticket if you can't get out on the slopes yourself. At the very least, the athlete in question knows everything there is to know about this sport. He'd have to know if it sucked.
