  1. For older teens and adult gamers, it may get a bit dull or annoying in certain spots. However, if you're under 13, or looking for a way to have fun with your kids while playing a video game, you won't be disappointed.
  2. The innovation that the Tony Hawk series has been so desperately searching for. It’s pure skating fun, but the inclusion of the Disney characters takes it that extra mile.
  3. The care and attention to detail evident in this game is a testimony to the designers' integrity, which is too often missing in children's games.
  4. Being a Tony Hawk clone doesn’t mean that this isn't a quality title with plenty of fresh features, well worth of giving it a try.
  5. The visuals are smooth and colorful, just like the films, and the gameplay is set up to bring little skating fans joy.

    This is actually one of the better games of this ilk I've played in quite some time. [Oct 2003, p.131]

    This is perhaps the first and only Disney sports title to impress me in the least. As an avid fan of Tony Hawk, I found the game to be incredibly fun and very easy to get into and enjoy.

    An excellent merging of two popular properties, this is one "kiddie" game that you shouldn't overlook just because it has the Disney name stamped on the side.
  9. Perfect for kids, which accomplishes the goal of Extreme Skate Adventure.
  10. 78
    One of the best examples of a game that appeals and caters to a younger age bracket while still maintaining a level of gameplay quality and intellectual decency lacking in so many other "kids games."

    An extreme sports free-for-all that features movie-themed playable characters in nine environments. [Nov 2003, p.151]
  12. What this all boils down to is a solid and intuitively controlled skating game that is optimized for younger players but also quite fun for fans of the Tony Hawk series.
  13. Personally, I don't have any place for a game like this on my shelf when I already have the whole Tony Hawk dynasty. Would I recommend it to my friends that have kids? Surely.
  14. Won't hold the Tony Hawk pro's attention for long, but it's still a fun, well-designed skating game.

    More serious gamers and hardcore Tony Hawk's fans might want to look elsewhere but this is great as an introduction to extreme sports games and great fun for any Disney fan.
  16. For children the simplified controls, strong characters and locations and the critically acclaimed THPS gameplay make for an ideal title to keep them happy.
  17. 70
    The easy tricks provide immediate gratification with a shallow learning curve, but there’s little depth.
  18. If you're a hardcore extreme sports fan, Disney’s Extreme Skateboarding Adventure will probably have you bored to tears in within an hour. However, if you have kids or younger siblings (girl or boy) in the house, it fits the bill as a challenging, entertaining, kid-friendly game. [Add 23 points if you're looking for a kids game]

    I'm shocked how actually good this game is. It does have some repetiveness, but overall it has those classic unique characters, and a I'm shocked how actually good this game is.

    What a great game. Tony Hawk is so smart for making this.
