Shaun White Skateboarding is a skateboarding game developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, and Microsoft Windows,[1] released in 2010. The game is also available through OnLive.[2] It is the third title in the Shaun White series and the first game published by Ubisoft to not ship with an instruction manual and instead use a digital manual.[3]

Despite having Shaun in the title and cover of the game, the player can only play him near the end of the game, the rest of the time is the character they create in the beginning. Upon completion of the game, the player gains the ability to freely play as Shaun White.

The game received "mixed or average reviews" on all platforms according to video game review aggregator Metacritic.[20][21][23][22]

In Japan, Famitsu gave the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions a score of one eight, one seven, and two eights, for a total of 31 out of 40.[7] One reviewer wrote: "The game's largely meant for casual users, and it's easy to break out a lot of different tricks. The story setup, which has you saving a city from evil with the power of your skateboard, is pretty funny. You have a lot of board and hat selections and so on when making a character, but I would have liked a few more facial types to choose from." Another wrote, "The 'shaping' system was obviously pretty ambitious on the developer's part, but actually play it, and it doesn't really make much of a difference in gameplay. I wish there was more flash, or speed, or something to differentiate this from other games."[7]
