Shaun White Skateboarding
Latest Shaun White Skateboarding Trailer Transforms Our World

View author's profile

Shaun White's already had his own snowboarding game, but now he's also getting his own skateboarding title too, which lets you play as Shaun and use the power of skate to transform a drab, corporate, conformist city into a colourful paradise, brimming with life, nature and all that good stuff. Oh, and it's called Shaun White Skateboarding, by the way.

Skating around in SW Skateboarding causes certain parts of the street to erupt into makeshift ramps and grinding enables you to sketch rails in mid air, creating some crazy, zig-zagging grinds up on high. You can also skate parts of the environment to trigger specific events, which can be something simple like draining a fountain to expose a hidden half-pipe bowl.

It's all in the new video, which shows a bit of live-action Shaun White doing his skate thing first, before showing off the game's funky transformation feature. Shaun White Skateboarding is due for a fall 2010 release.

The idea is great, but Ive just got that niggling feeling in the back of my head that the Skate devs (Black Box) would pull it off so much better

Also the actual skater in that vid looks horrible, the graphics for the skater looks it should belong on ps2 =P

falling over invisible ramps and not knowing what you are skating sounds terrible to me

@13 How can you say its a dumb idea, when you've never tried it.

Looks interesting - one to keep an eye on for sure.

@14 because I think the idea looks dumb that's all. If they want to be creative you have to change skating games, like "Skate" did with them. Not just make things look pretty when doing tricks. and by the looks of it, you can only play as Shaun White? sorry to offend you though man :)

I played this at E3, I'll admit that this trailer doesn't give the game any justice but the best way to describe this game is that I felt like I was playing Tony Hawk 2, which was the last real fun Tony Hawk game. Ubisoft is obviously not trying to go for realism like Skate, they are going for fun, and frankly the market could use some unadulterated skateboarding fun.

I'm not comparing it to skate btw. just saying skate was something fresh. I've not even played a skate game. only a Demo. this trailer looks rubbish though, just seems like a pointless game. but who knows I guess it could suprise and turn out to be fun.

yeah this game is defineately a horrible rental if that. and i feel sorry if anyone is actually willing to pay $60 for something like this, i think you should take a step back for a second and actually try to grasp what you are doing.

@ #16

I haven't played a skating game in a long time. I just wanted to make a quick joke.

Well I thought it looked like a lot of fun, but not for long periods of time. It's a good idea but something tells me that this game will become absolutely ridiculous near the end.

Tony Hawks underground will always be the best skateboarding game.
