After the “I lost ten stone using Wii Fit!” hoop-la of the summer, it’s time for the balance board to move to the next level.
Chiefly, proper gaming. First up: Shaun White Snowboarding, which promises a hitherto unexperienced level of snowboarding intuition – so long as you already know how.
You use the balance board to carve up the slopes and attempt to track down Shuan White over five continents, which feature a wealth of different tracks and half-pipe challenges.
Coupled with super-hip rider-and-cameraman gameplay style, SWS could be one of the games of 2009.
