Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that your kids will love this game, but keep in mind that McDonald's is heavily promoted, as is Disney and Nokia.
What's it about?
Is it any good?
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.
