Who knows, we may have witnessed the birth of long-lived sportseriala and someday the name of Shaun White will be familiar to gamers all over the world as well as Tony Hawk. The trouble is that the very first game of the new rulers moved in different directions - Road Trip for the Wii definitely has earned a point, while the "main» Shaun White Snowboarding was adopted much, much cooler.
In English, there is a mot «downhill», translated into Russian, it is rather cumbersome - to rush to the hills. " A couple of years ago I watched a picture - to the mountain, which at that moment I Snowboard, drove a jeep, he fell out of three guys in coats, forty, for themselves, they dragged the oilcloth. Her bed on the ice, they sat down and somehow went down. Flying 15 meters, the construction has collapsed, and all flew in drifts. Happy and laughing, they returned to the car and went about his business. This is the Russian "The Wind in his ugly face, and I Shparo!" (Group "Lube") or, if you want a more intelligent version of "What Russian does not like to drive fast?" (Gogol) - and is the basis of the very downhill . And pokatushki a hill that feeling - a key.
When the game about snowboarding came to the home platform, developers quickly realized that a little realism here who are interested in, everyone needs first and foremost "downhill" - to burn up the road to jumping a hundred feet, and another to be able to pass on wire on top tucked in the way of the alpine village.
Canadians from Ubisoft tried to make the game on older consoles, "more serious". That came out of it, you've already read in the last issue. But the Wii, which has traditionally getting any crumbs from the master's table multiplatform, got its own, "separate" game, which cleverly bypassed on the side of his older sister and got the laurels of the winner.
All of these athletes - the real citizens of the world, they can easily fly from Canada to Chile, and from there - in the Alps, and so on, make new friends and scouting new routes. Shaun White himself (see sidebar) - a sort of elusive vigilante, he was always ahead of our heroes on the pitch and a half. Actually, meeting with him and is a grail of this hike is not enough unless the scene fall prostrate before summer tomatoes (again, see sidebar).
Visually, nothing out of the ordinary here, however, did not see - such a schedule in snowboarding games all know already about five years: rare trees, rocks, even ice cover we see no eyes, but rather on the rumor. Nothing new in themselves snowboarding competitions also not invented - in addition to high-speed "downhill" to perform tricks for points, collect (for some reason), garbage cans, lovingly apart in the snowy slopes, and jump into the "pipe".
After abstruse scheme snowboarding in SSX Blur, the way it is implemented here, it seems almost a revelation - you need a Wiimote: all the jumps, slopes and tricks are easily achieved with its help, though, even themselves. Fun should not be complicated, all right.
I remember in the same Avalanche 1080 was such a problem: guests came, include joysticks, and I overtook them all. Game is mine! Shaun White Snowboarding: Road Trip allows you to give beginners a head start - you can play together simultaneously, one - Mote, the other - on the board. And not just two, a whole bunch of options.
It is with Shaun White Snowboarding: Road Trip in a set (instead of Wii Fit) worth selling Wii Balance Board, she deserves it much more. After it we have not just one more "game about snowboarding, but a completely new experience. Once, under the impression of SSX, I went to ride this board on this snow fell in love with the sport. Wii-version of the game named Shaun White, I am sure, will push to make this decision for thousands of gamers around the world. And who knows, maybe some of them once utret nose on the track itself "summer tomatoes?
