Shaun White Snowboarding
Shaun White Snowboarding is a snowboarding sports game in which players race and perform stunts down six different mountains, competing against NPCs and eventually a digital rendering of American professional snowboarder and skateboarder Shaun White.
Players compete in a variety of events, including Jibbing, Air Tricking, Slopestyle, Boardercross, and Halfpipe, earning both money and respect which allows them to upgrade their player-character. An online multiplayer mode is also included.
Shaun White Snowboarding's PS3 version received lukewarm reviews, with an average score of 64%, praised for its overall fun, but criticized for its lack of presentation and ho-hum graphics.

It should be noted that Ubisoft announced the closure of their online servers on August 8 2014. As of the time adding this title to our game database, the servers still remain active, on borrowed time. The game has 7 online trophies, which will become unobtainable if/when the servers finally do go offline.
Aside from that, the most difficult challenge will be learning the controls. Once you've mastered the learning curve, many of the trophies can be rather easy to collect, if not simply time-consuming, with the Platinum earned in around 20-30 hours.
As we mentioned earlier, at the time of uploading this game to our database, the online servers are on borrowed time, and could be cut at any time. As a result, we recommend getting those 7 online trophies out of the way as soon as you can. Unfortunately, you'll need to unlock some challenges before you can play them online. This means, doing so should be a priority.
First start by exploring the areas and collecting tokens for each map, while getting used to the controls. The learning curve can be steep for some people, but once you've gotten the hang of it, you shouldn't have too much problem.
Once you're confident enough, go ahead and start working through the challenges and missions. After you've gotten through and everything's unlocked, don't worry about mopping-up just yet. Head online and start working on those 7 online trophies. Many of them don't require you to win, simply play different challenges on different mountains. But the Mecha Shredzilla trophy requires a total of 1 million respect points, and will take some grinding if you didn't achieve it while unlocking the others.
After all that's done, you can go ahead and start mopping up any remaining offline trophies you're still missing.
