Shaun White's second foray into the video game world is on a skateboard this time and I personally enjoyed this more than his snowboarding game, which was ok in its own right. This game is an overall easy platinum and it's the first Platinum I have gotten, besides Terminator Salvation, without ever looking at a guide. That probably means there doesn't really need to be guide but if it helps a few people, why not do one?
There is no set path you have to take to get the here. You can mix the story with online or do the story first with online last. My only suggestion would be to play the single player a little before you drop into the online to get a feel for the controls. They are similar to the Skate series but there are some awkward controller inputs (like getting out of a bowl or transitioning) but overall it's a pretty easy game to grasp.
The only real advice I have on this game is that if you really want the platinum, make sure you know someone who can help you with the online because there is no one playing this on PSN. When I say no one, I promise you, there is no one. That just means you will need a boost partner. The online trophies are all very easy and can be done in an hour or two; you just need someone to come online with you. Boosting thread: LINK.
If you know nothing of this game I want to explain influencing and levels of flow. Flow is just a running point counter at the bottom of the screen. You start out with one level but it quickly goes to 3. To get to level one you need to be at 100 points, level 2 is 750 and then level 3 is 1,500 points. Once you hit and maintain the different levels you will be able to "influence" certain areas and items. Level 1 unlocks areas highlighted in yellow, level 2 is blue and level 3 is purple. This will make a lot more sense once you play the game.
