Fun game, and not too annoying to parents!

Summary: I rented this game for my 7-1/2 year-old son. He made faces at first but then played it solid. The graphics are fun, the challenges are at a good level for him. Hard enough to frustrate him a bit, easy enough that he eventually gets it and is proud of himself. I happen to like the soundtrack, having a dozen or so distinct songs is so much better than the usual repetitive "video game" sound. We turned down the voices and turned up the music.
Summary: I'm an 11 year old and I'm a Tony Hawk fan! I think that this is a good idea. As you may know already, Tony Hawk is rated T, but it is a fun game. I think it was good of them to let smaller kids have some fun with it too, but not with all the bad language and stuff. My only complaints are that some of the challenges are extremely easy, but I guess that this game was mainly for younger kids and they might have a harder time with it.
Summary: I got this game for Christmas. My only Complaint is that Lil' Romeos voice is like a normal edit kid. I thought that it would be Romeos voice. In Zurgs World it has a low gravity crater that is good for ollies and spine tranfers.
Disney's Extreme Skate Adventure--review from a parent
15 October 2003
Summary: Disney's Extreme Skate Adventure is a fun game for the 6-12 crowd most likely. The game features tunes from Radio Disney and many fun characters including Buzz, Woody, Tarzan ,etc. As a parent of two, and gamer myself, we all had fun playing the game. It takes a little practice to get used to the controls but exploring the enviroments (jungle,savana,Andy's room, etc) was fun. As other reviewers note, the game does take some planning ahead (ie.
Summary: This game was an awesome idea but got put out too quickly. This game was great until I beat it on the second or third day. The characters were really fun to play with but had 5 or 6 easy objectives each. But even though the levels were short the create-a-skater was worth buying the game for. It was a fun game but I suggest waiting for the new Tony Hawk.
Summary: The kids should really dig this game from Activision; most of them won't have any problem racking up high scores since they have played Tony Hawk a million times already. This game uses the trick/control engine from the popular Hawk series. Lots of levels, tricks, neat hidden stuff, etc. This title is worth the cash, for both the kids and their parental units.
Excerpt: The disney version of Tony Hawks skateboarding. This game is great for anyone with a love for there favourite disney films, you can take control of your favourite disney characters, each with there own special tricks and voices from the films. The game uses the same game engine used in Tony Hawks pro skate 4, which is brilliant, you can pull of the trick combos similar to the those in the game but with your disney characters rather than the pros.
Summary: The honest truth is that the soundtrack to this game is brilliant it really got me interested in different artists and a whole new genre of music. The paused menu allows you to create a playlist of the songs on the game. Artists such as Audiovent, TRUSTcompany, GRITS, Smashmouth, Simple Plan and many more. The game overall is for younger kids but the music isn't 9/10 for music and 6/10 for the game.
Excerpt: When I normally hear of a Disney game coming out I do cringe a little. Not only because Disney makes movies and movie-games are usually abysmal (though are getting better) but because Disney caters for kids mainly, making these games worse. So when I saw this on a demo free with an issue of OPS2 it’s hardly surprising I did not play. After a long trip to a large ASDA though I went straight to the games section, only to see this demo being played on an Xbox.
