Disney’s Extreme Skate Adventure
When the Tony Hawk franchise was big, Disney’s Extreme Skate Adventure was released. While it seemingly looked like a THPS ripoff, I, like many others, simply passed on the game for such reasons. Years later I acquired a copy of the game and gave it a go. Not only was it a fully realized game, it also uses the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 4 engine in it’s own gameplay! Because of that it’s a very capable skateboarding game. Toss in the Disney levels, simplified controls and gameplay to appeal to younger gamers, and a nice degree of polish and you’ve got a game that’s worth playing! When compared to Tony Hawk’s more recent gaming efforts, this game looks like the apex of the genre. And it lets you play as Zurg!
