Activision and Disney have collaborated to create a skateboarding game starring characters from three animated films. Using the same isometric engine from the handheld version of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4, Disney's Extreme Skate Adventure takes players through such famous locales as Pride Rock, Pizza Planet, and Tarzan's Treehouse as they guide six characters from The Lion King, Toy Story 2, and Tarzan. Single Session, Story, and Multiplayer are the three modes of play.
Playable characters include Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Tarzan, Terk, Simba, and Rafiki. Once a character is selected, players will be able to perform such popular moves as ollies, grinds, spins, and a variety of other aerial tricks with whimsical names such as the Howdy Slide, Tail Chase, or the Cosmic Ballet. Single Session has players competing on any available course to achieve high scores, Story involves fulfilling a series of objectives to unlock new levels, and Multiplayer offers head-to-head competition against a friend.
Since many of the featured settings are not conducive to traditional skateboarding, players will be able to guide their characters using modified boards in the shape of bamboo rafts, frying pans, and more. In addition to completing objectives, players will also solve puzzles, uncover secret areas, and find a variety of items to collect on each level. Developer Vicarious Visions is no stranger to skateboarding games: the company was also responsible for the first three Game Boy Advance versions of Activision's best-selling Tony Hawk's Pro Skater series. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
