Shaun White Skateboarding
Shaun White Skateboarding is a skateboarding game, and the third in the Shaun White series. Players can perform over 80 different tricks while competing in challenges and narrative missions across the city. The game includes two-player split-screen, as well as online multiplayer with up to eight players.
Shaun White Skateboarding received lukewarm reviews with an average score of 68%, praised for its soundtrack, though criticized for being a mediocre skateboarding game in terms of graphics and gameplay.
Shaun White Skateboarding includes 12 online trophies. Given the age of the game, as well as the fact that the online servers seem to be region-locked, finding people to play with - and then being able to unlock the trophies - is quite difficult to do legitimately, hence the 3-star difficulty. However, if you have a boosting partner, all 12 online trophies can be attained within a few hours. With a boosting partner, the difficulty for the platinum could be brought down to a 2-star, as the offline trophies are not particularly difficult.
With a boosting partner, expect roughly 25-30 hours, and far more if you're attempting the online trophies legitimately.
Shaun White Skateboarding doesn't require much of a roadmap, as there are no missable trophies. However, if you're in need of some direction, we recommend beginning with the Story. For the most part, just worry about playing through from beginning to end, learning all the controls. Though you can be on the lookout for the 35 challenges, collectibles, and things that can be converted such as billboards, restaurants, objects, and citizens. This will simply save you some time later on in the mop-op phase, but is not necessary at this point.
Next, there are the Shaun White Challenges. Some of these can be a bit tricky, but for the most part, it shouldn't prove to be too challenging in getting the gold medals in all of them.
From this point on, you can either mop-up any offline trophies you still need, or head into online multiplayer to unlock the 12 online trophies waiting for you. The online servers seem to be region-locked, which means your luck at finding people to play with will depend on who is online in your region/country. If you're having trouble doing these legitimately, check out the boosting forums under our Links tab. You only need one other player to unlock all the online trophies.
