Shaun White Snowboarding: Road Trip

I've finished the story mode on Shaun White Snowboarding: Road Trip (which is what lets me add it to the list here) but I'm still playing back through the levels trying to finish every single challenge because it's just that fun. I've never played any of the Shaun White games before, but the basic game play is familiar from any number of Tony Hawk or similar "extreme sports" games—string together tricks to unlock new courses and characters with varying abilities. What makes it so fun is that I'm playing on the Wii and using the balance board as the controller—there's an incredibly visceral feeling to leaning forward to go faster down a hill or wildly hopping trying to get over an obstacle. There could be a few more songs in the in-game jukebox, but that's a quibble.
