Game Chronicles
Disney’s Extreme Skate Adventure is a wonderful game for both kids and adults. 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. There’s no denying that this game has a style and charm all its own that is unmistakably Disney and unmistakably fun for the entire family.

Most of the recent Disney sports-related games have been decent at the very best. Disney’s Extreme Skate Adventure is a different story though. The game is probably the best Disney game I’ve played in a while and a good skating game to boot. This just goes to show you what a good engine and development team can do.

Best kids game I've played in a long time. It's got fun characters, cool worlds, plenty of things to see and do, and nothing is too frustrating challenge-wise. Younger players may need help with some of the tougher goals and tricks. Players fall off their skateboards, but since they're all cartoon characters nobody gets hurt or bloody like in real life. The music, being songs frequently played on Radio Disney, is all family friendly (albeit annoying after a while). Disney Extreme Skate Adventure is definitely a great and appropriate kid alternative to the Tony Hawk Pro Skater game series. Heck, even I liked it better. Who wouldn't enjoy defeating Zurg as Buzz Lightyear on a skateboard? Kid Factor by Cary Woodham.

Yes, I realize it's a short review. But the game is pretty straightforward if you think about it. Tony Hawk Pro Skater with Disney characters. It's cute, and it's fun to play. Parents can definately breate easy with the E for Everyone rating, and know this game is built with kids in mind. And that is a good thing.

Disney's Extreme Skate Adventure turned out be be a rather fun and solid title with a few flaws that I expect to see fixed for the hopeful sequel. I can't really recommend this to anyone over 12 years old, unless you happen to be a massive Disney fan. But if you're a parent or have a younger sibling that you don't hate, you'll have fun playing it with them.

It is hard to quibble with a game that has a certain target audience and meets that goal. However, this is a title that could have had much broader appeal. When you take the skate engine from Tony Hawk, the potential is there for a huge title. However, this game was geared more for younger players. 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.

Auch wenn viele Disney´s Extreme Skate Adventure nur als „Tony Hawk Light“ bezeichnen werden, machen die Tricksereien mit den bekannten und lieb gewonnenen Disney-Figuren eine Menge Spaß. Zumal mit der wahlweise vereinfachten Steuerung nicht nur die Optik, sondern auch die Spielbarkeit wunderbar auf Jüngere zugeschnitten wurde. Vom Spielumfang nicht ganz so umfangreich wie das Vorbild, das auch die Engine spendiert hat, bietet der Disney-Skater ungezwungenen Spaß für zwischendurch und ist durchaus auch für ältere Spieler interessant - auch wenn Buzz Lightyear, Tarzan und Co. kein vollwertiger Ersatz für den Skateboard-König sind. Wieso man allerdings bei einem Spiel, das sich derart deutlich an jüngere Spieler richtet, einen derart aggressiven Soundtrack verwendet hat, entzieht sich meiner Vorstellungskraft und sorgt für einen deutlichen Stimmungsbruch in einem ansonsten rundum unterhaltsamen Skate-Abenteuer.

Game Informer Magazine
As an adult gamer, there are a few things I really appreciate about Disney Extreme Skate Adventure. For one, the simplified version of the Tony Hawk engine allows both kids and adults like myself to feel like we’re good at a skating game. I also love that the Create-A-Skater mode lets me create really hideous mutant children. What could be more fun than a kid with an enormously swollen head, a mohawk, and red clown shoes busting 80,000 point combos?

Game Over Online
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. The colorful cast of characters goes a long way to make the game feel like a one-of-a-kind experience and the simplified control scheme ensures that frustration will be kept to a minimum. If you can�t wait for Tony Hawk�s Underground and want to take a spin around a few new levels, then Skate Adventure is certainly worth looking into, but if you�ve got a younger sibling who enjoys these sorts of games but just can�t quite get the hang of it, then Disney�s Extreme Skate Adventure is a no-brainer, in more ways than one.

Si vous avez déjà terminé les derniers volets de Tony Hawk ou que vous n'êtes pas forcément attiré par Disney, vous pouvez facilement ôter un point ou deux à la note finale. Pour les autres, Disney Extreme Skate Adventure est un bon jeu de skate, simple d'accès et à la réalisation réussie.

All in all, Disney's Extreme Skate Adventure is a good game for younger players or Disney fans who also enjoy skateboarding games. Fans of the Tony Hawk series may wish to rent this one as well, if only to have some new levels to play around in while waiting for the release of the next game in the Tony Hawk series. Disney's Extreme Skate Adventure won't hold the Tony Hawk pro's attention for long, but it's still a fun, well-designed skating game.
