Skylanders Spyro's Adventure Review

 

Skylanders Spyro's Adventure combines a kids game, with pricey toys, and a brilliant ad campaign. It's on your kid's Christmas list, so listen up.

Yes, ultimately the content in the game is already on the disc and you have to pay money to unlock it, which sounds like BS. But even without the extras, Skylanders is a pretty substantial action game for kids (with a small cast). It's fun, it's...

Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure Review

 

First of all, don't be fooled by the name: this isn't really a Spyro title; it's an interesting concept that only features Spyro as one of 32 total characters. They're called Skylanders and they're the guardians of a colorful, charming realm where even...

The Ugly: “Hey, where’s my Portal of Power for a baseball game, where I can put all my old baseball cards on the platform and play as Ken Griffey, Jr. and Frank Thomas?”

Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure Review

 

When we first started getting material about Skylanders, one question was echoed by nearly every member of our staff, “Are those toys?!” We didn't “get it” and, honestly, we didn't really want to.

Engaging for kids and adults ; Depth will keep players coming back ; User-friendly design ; Interaction technology is more than a gimmick

Expanding a collection can get expensive

Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure (Xbox 360) Review

 

The holiday season might be Call of Duty for some, but what do you get the younger gamers in the household? Sure they might like Batman, but Arkham City is a definitely a Mature title, and Dragon Ball Z, well that has been done to death. The fresh new...

Plastic pieces add an element of collection outside the game ; Fun to put new pieces on the portal and watch them change in-game ; Easy to get into for younger gamers. No frustration here ; Skylanders are customizable ; Lots of variety in-game, if you...

Plastic pieces and portal ultimately unnecessary ; Extremely basic gameplay, this one is only for the youngsters ; Production is nothing to write home about ; Not a traditional Spyro game ; Clips of “available” characters lures you into purchasing

Skylanders Spyro's Adventure is an easy recommendation, if you have children who are looking for a new way to interact with their games. The ability to put "action figures" in the game via a "magical" portal is outstanding. While it might be a clever...

Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure- PS3

 

Skylanders is an entertaining and addictive game with unique ideas that never feel gimmicky. While the game is fun in its own right, the figures and portal make it into more than just the average adventure game.

Consumer review by:

Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure- PS3

 

It's fun, it's challenging, the story is cute, and there is co-op. The potential to use these figures in future games, as well as the ability to trade them and use them cross platform makes this feel less like a gimmick and more like really cool tech.

Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure- PS3

 

Armed with a nice roster of characters, Skylanders is an engrossing experience. Outside of an odd difficulty spike at the end and a few less-than-polished moments, the game hits its target. If I were a kid, I have no doubt I'd be saving my pennies to...
