Rated 10 out of 10 by IGiveMyOpinion Not a SPYRO game
When this game first hit in TV commercials, everyone was so hyped that another Spyro game was coming out. But this game is NOT a Spyro game at all. Don't get me wrong though, this game will keep you entertained for hours! But if you want to buy this game only for Spyro, don't buy it. This game has 32 other characters (you have to buy them of course)so you are pretty much not going to spend much time on only 1 character, like spyro. Although you could just use Spyro, or any other characters to be exact, it really ruins the purpose of Skylanders since you are suppose to play other characters. But lets get to the possitives. This game has a really entertaining storyline and the skills you get for your Skylander are very useful and cool. Also the fact that you can switch characters at anytime using the Portal you get makes the player feel more in-control of the Skylanders. The controls are very simple and you adapt to them quickly. I give this a 10 because I enjoyed it alot and it is addicting.
Rated 9 out of 10 by ReviewMWBer Toys show some skill!
When I heard about this game in the Gameinformer magazine, I thought it was just an idea waiting to either succeed or fail. Fortunately, it satisfied me completely! I have played a lot of the previous Spyro games and this one is nothing like the other ones. I'm not meaning this in an offensive way, but because the previous games was focused completely on Spyro and some of his friends. Boys from ages 6 to 11 will love this game and probably stick their face right on the TV screen after the five minutes of playing it! I personally love this game and the best feature is using toys to play the game. For fans of the previous Spyro games, I think you might be disappointed that this does not focus on Spyro at all, but on the other mischievous characters. I hope this game does really well to other gamers and Activision will make more Spyro games in the future.
Rated 9 out of 10 by drewdwn3434 For the Parents considering this for your kids~
I considered purchasing this for my son, and 5 year old boy. After a bit of deliberation, I picked it up. Most of the games I'm able to get for him he loves until he gets too frustrated with tricky moves or lots of story lines. This is the first game I have gotten for him where he is able to easily play, enjoy himself, and still find a challenge The controls are simple, and the game will flash which buttons to push at the correct times. He absolutely loves it. Its simply the best RPG/Action for kids. This is not even taking into account the fact that its innovative, and all around fun for the rest of the family, including myself and my wife. My son can get up, and switch his guys on a whim, which is how he wants to play his games. For any parents considering this for their kids this holiday season, its does get much better than this. Look out Pokemon!
Rated 10 out of 10 by cupid y r people saying its only 4 lil kids
i luv spyro best games ever this one it might not focus on just spyro but it really feels like a spyro game and the charactors feel like there from spyro to! alot of people say this games for lil 5 year old well i 13 and this game is the best buy it it doesnt matter if your 1 or 100 or r a hardcore gamer or a casual one u will love skylanders of course my fav charakters r 1s that fly like spyro cynder whirlwind sonic boom drobot but i like others tenikly there dragons that dont fly like zap bash but eveyone fun 2 play as the story lines eazy 2 fallow and makes since it funny at times like wen flyn (the voice of joe from famly guy) always says boom and thinks hes so sexy and how kaus is so short and cant get on the portal (voice of zim in invader zim and billy from billy and mandy) you might think it looks stupid on adds and stuff if your like 13 but go out and buy it im sure 99.99% of people will like it. the voices are good i think spyro has the voice he does in the other games( its hard 2 tell the skylanders only talk wen they say there catch fraze wen u put them on (spyros is "all fired up") THIS IS A MUST HAVE BUY IT. LIVE IT. AND LOVE IT.
Rated 10 out of 10 by unchartedfanboy Underrated Game.
The Skylander's series is about of the most underrated series that I've seen so far. The story line wasn't difficult for me and I think anyone other than a kid gamer extremely easy (kids might, too). The story line is nor too short nor too long, it'll take a little while. Graphics are amazing and are ahead of their time. A tip of mine is to have at least one skylander from each element, trust me it'll help you during the game, because there is secret passageways that have to have a required element and if you have that element and you go down the passageway you'll find treasure and some other cool stuff. Like I said before, this game is very underrated and I wish it would grow some attention from the public. This game is great for young kids looking for an adventurous video game.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Foxee Very Fun!
I'm seventeen and I enjoy this game, my boyfriend even likes it, although I wouldn't recomend it for teens my age that much, but younger kids that for sure. Although people outcast it as a profit, I find it an interesting matter. No game is like it, and you have a variety of characters to play. Not only on the console but you can take them on the web. The best part is being able to switch from different concoles. Those no game that does that. It like takeing your saved file from an xbox and taking it to the wii. Thats just an improvement there!
The game isn't to hard to play, so if your looking for challenge this might not be for you. Its rather simple and some parts are tricky, but never unbeatable.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Skiz35 Dissapointed
spyro used to be full of annoying little arabian dudes running around screaming na na na boo boo! ha ha ha! then you chase him for a magic lamp. the good ol' days. spyro has been not only destroyed but humiliated. 1 2 3 and enter the dragon fly were the only good ones. (2 was my fav! still play today) now getting to the next level is a chore. it has gone from colorful bad graphics to gloomy/scary bad graphics. im sick of terrible remakes and if i see one more i might lose alittle faith. i want to defeat nasty nork and kick riptos in the behind! please bring my little dragon friend back:( p.s. no more stupid breaths unless through power up portal. that was a downer in ETDF.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Deadmau5thegamer great game!
This game is perfect for kids teens and young adults who have great imaginations! The vast options of toys you can chose from and they all have uniqe abilities in the game! dont listen to people who say they ruined Spyro! just because he is in the title doesnt mean the game is about him. if it was about him they wouldnt take the time to make another 31 perfectly sculpted figures to play as. Your all going to have to face fact.... Spyro is JUST IN THE GAME! not about him... he's in the game and he is in the title because he is the main character not because the game revolves around him. if your considering this game just buy it. You wont be dissapointed.
