  1. The younger kids who are unable to grasp the more complicated aspects of Tony Hawk will love the simplified trick system and adults and teens will find the challenging mission objectives highly entertaining.
  2. It's cute, and it's fun to play. Parents can definitely breate easy with the E for Everyone rating, and know this game is built with kids in mind. And that is a good thing.
  3. When it comes to a great program for younger gamers, Disney’s Extreme Skate Adventure is a bonafide success. Older, more experienced players may get a chuckle or two from the animation, but will not find it much of a challenge.
  4. What cold be more fun than a kid with an enormously swollen head, a mohawk, and red clown shoes busting 80,000 point combos? [Oct 2003, p.139]

    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."
  6. 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.
  7. You'll notice that the Xbox version is the better of the bunch. All console versions are colorful and share the same characters and expansive environments but the Xbox just presents it better.

    This is a great game, especially for a Disney-aholic like me. I would recommend, however, turning off the soundtrack (which is enough to make your eyebrows burn off) and getting your own music. Expand

    Great for kids and people that want to play a fun game with their kids .... +ve - Superb create your own skater mode (easy to use and loads of options) - Simple controls (switchable to more pro controls if you want) - Custom soundtracks (Buzz Lightyear grinding to Marilyn Manson is a rare 'Disney' treat) - Great character animations and themes in each world (NPC's, boards, voiceovers etc) - 1 area and 2 characters in each of the 4 main worlds available from the start with plenty of other unlockables (characters, levels, tricks, create a skater options) - Free Roam mode with all unlocked characters able to roam in all worlds (inc. 2 player split screen) - Great fun, and doesn't take itself too seriously - as simple as that ... -ve - Could get a bit repetitive over time - Environments could do with some more bump-mapping as they can be a little flat in places - Difficult to find the other player in split screen multiplayer (especially for children) - Some tricks may be a bit difficult for younger kids (oh well, I guess I'll have to do that bit then, never mind!!!!) - No Xbox Live features - That's it, other than a few minor collision issues here and there ... Overall, the best kid game on XBox (coming from someone that normally hates skate/extreme sport and Disney licenced games) 8/10 score based on being 6 years old. Expand

    Apart from the soundtrack that will make your ears bleed (Thank goodness you can switch it off! ) this is one of the best kiddies type game around.
