Great game that a parent and a kid can play!

An excellent entry level game. Young kids will enjoy just skating around as their favorite Disney characters. Older kids will get a lot out of the depth of play and some interesting level design. Product placement is bothersome. I can't really speak to it, as each parent has different attitudes on it and how they feel they should react to it. Suffice to say it isn't prevalent on earlier levels. Music may not be age appropriate in all cases. The option does exist to lower the volume on the background music while keeping the SFX and dialog at a reasonable levels. All in all, as someone who has played the Tony Hawk Games, Disney's Extreme Skate Adventure has surprising depth while being very easy for a 4 or 5 year old to pick up and skate around. Enjoy!

Too much consumerism

Is It Any Good?

Parents say (1):

In the past, the combination of the Disney license with a sports title usually resulted in a bad video game. But here , Activision has produced an excellent game for all ages.

Unfortunately, product placement is alive and well in Disney's Extreme Skate Adventure. One of the goals is to deliver McDonald's food to folks strewn across a level after which you will achieve Ronald McDonald clown feet. Another goal is to collect ring tones for your Nokia phone in a certain period of time. And the game's soundtrack is straight off of Radio Disney with songs from Smash Mouth, Reel Big Fish, and Lil' Romeo. But, poduct placements aside, Disney's Extreme Skate Adventure will keep your child engaged and entertained.
