Handheld gamers hit the slopes with the Renaissance man of the extreme sports world for some open-mountain exploration in Shaun White Snowboarding. Players have free reign to skirt the edge of an avalanche in extreme peak conditions, carve new routes through untracked backcountry powder, and join other riders for competitive events in terrain parks spread throughout four vast mountains. The game makes use of special DS controls that allow players to slide the stylus to carve, flick the stylus to jump, and draw circles around the rider to spin. Gamers can use environmental obstacles to execute tricks and catch massive air as they explore craggy mountaintops and dense, tree-lined paths, and riders can earn attribute-boosting decals by completing specific challenges. The wireless multiplayer option in Shaun White Snowboarding lets friendly gamers trade decals, while up to four riders can square off in races, point competitions, and "king-of-the-hill" contests.
