Critic score distribution:

  1. Underneath a 'kiddy' looking facade lurks a game of amazing depth.
  2. It's a thumbs-up for the tots, but nobody in their teens or up would choose this over "Tony Hawk" or "Aggressive Inline." [Nov 2002, p.134]
  3. A fairly decent "Tony Hawk's Pro Skater" clone, putting a different face on a familiar game.
  4. 65
    At almost no point does anything feel remotely "extreme" about the game, and it feels like everything has been watered down to accrue that "E" rating.
  5. Compared to the father of this genre, Whirl Tour can (and most likely will) turn into a session of tedium and bore.
  6. Carves a niche in a crowded genre. [Dec 2002, p.220]
  7. With a total of seven playable characters, ten scooters and eight levels, there's enough shredding for the long haul. [Nov 2002, p.92]
  8. 51
    For the most part, the control handles well, and some of the level design is fairly decent, but the goals aren't unique or challenging enough to really bring any excitement into the game.
  9. Might interest younger gamers and please parents with it’s inoffensiveness, but there are still better games out there for the younger audience.
  10. The presentation and effort are very respectable. The music is some of the best ever, but the gameplay is slow and highly un-original and sometimes downright stupid.
