Casting Disney's biggest stars as skateboarding maestros, Disney Sports Skateboarding sees Mickey, Donald and the gang strap on pads and helmets and partake in a series of arcade-style competitions. Both games boast eight challenging skate parks based on specific Disney themes - including a space station, downtown San Francisco and an enchanted castle - with each character charged with performing key moves and stunts, specifically tied in with the unique locations.

As with all Disney Sports titles, Disney Sports Skateboarding has been designed to appeal to all levels of games players. The GameCube version's incredibly intuitive gameplay allows newcomers to get to grips with the many kick-flips, aerials and grinds the game allows, while specific mid-level challenges are designed to test the player's growing skills. Just reward for exceptional performance comes in the form of new boards, outfits and stickers that are revealed as key tasks and tricks are completed.

Adding an unpredictable element to the action, however, are Chip and Dale, Disney's troublesome chipmunks. Perturbed at the intrusion as Mickey and friends are going through the motions, the two chipmunks attempt to sabotage performances by scattering walnuts over the courses to trip players up, or by throwing them at the characters as they are in mid-movement.

With game modes offering Time Attacks and Trick Champion options and stunning cartoon-quality visuals, Disney Sports Skateboarding is a welcome addition to the Disney Sports series and further proof of the versatility of Disney's ever-popular characters.
