Skylanders Spyro's Adventure Starter Pack
Not a real Spyro game,but still fun
Although Skylanders Spyro's adventure is not a true Spyro the dragon game,its still very fun.The starter pack price is a little high,and so are the charecters.There is a great selection of charecters though.The game is not too long,or to hard.The graphics are really cool.The background music goes very well with the enviroment.I love the fact that it is up to 2 players,and all of the upgrades for your Skylander.I would highly recommend this game.
Its not good its AMAZING!
When I first got this game I was expecting it to be good but 2 seconds later after I played it it was awsome I dont care what people say the game is amazing and thats that also skylanders giants is coming this fall so get ready!
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.
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!
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.
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.
Not a spyro game!
This game has gotten hate for a obvious reason, spyro looks messed up! But it doesnt bother me, being a gamer who plays games from my childhood and now it doesnt bother me as much as the title saying "Spyro Adventure In Skylands" People are judging this alot but i like it! Now on to the actual review. This game has alot of stuff in it that makes it fun and exciting. But the thing that makes this game the most unique game ive seen in years is the figures that come with it! There are 32 skylanders in all and more to come i hope. The story is hard to understand if you're older and have a mind, but i guess seven year olds which it is reccomended for will enjoy it. Its no COD but it sure is great. There is still alot wrong with this game for being made in 2011. The graphics are great but sometimes they are not the best, but mostly they look good. The sound is not the problem with the game but more of the voice acting. Of course it has a few people that you may know such as patrick warburton the voice of joe from family guy and as the voice of flynn in the game. There is also the voice of richard horvitz as the voice of invaider zim and as kaos the main antagonist in the game. The worst voice has to be spyro! You dont feel like there is trouble when he acts worried. But if you're 7 you might not notice. But it is a great game so if you have a son or daughter or any kid, i reccomend you get this for them if they like adventure games.
Skylanders is Pure Fun!
I bought Skylanders Spyro's Adventure a few days ago because it honestly looked like a lot of fun! I've been hearing nothing but great reviews for it, I'm a huge and longtime fan of Spyro since the very beginning, and I really like the concept for the game! Its no lie this game is directed mainly towards kids, but that doesn't mean at all that its weird for teenagers or adults to play, I'm 16 and I love this game! This game is very legit, you'll see me go from playing Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, to Skylanders Spyro's Adventure. I'm a hardcore gamer but at the same time I also enjoy casual games, I don't want to play something intense all the time and playing this game just feels great! The graphics will reminds you of the PS1 and Nintendo 64 era, but thats not a bad thing, that was a great time in gaming and its great to see a game with such vibrant and colorful graphics. Other than that the graphics won't amaze you but its supose to feel cartoony and it gets the job done. The Gameplay is great, each Skylander has his or her own special abilities to help you progress through levels and surprisingly sometimes you actually might have to think about your tactics on what you have to do, but nothing will leave you stumped. The music is incredible, its really reminds me of the old Spyro music and even if the characters don't talk all the time when they do, its top notch. The game doesn't exactly revolve around Spyro, him and all the other characters look like they belong in Spyro's universe and thats fantastic! I highly recommend this to kids, teenagers, & adults. Beginner gamers, big Spyro fans, someone looking for something fresh and different, guys like me who are hardcore and casual gamers. Its well worth the money!
Bring back the old spyro.
I started playing spyro when it first came out on the original PlayStation, the first 3 have always been the best, and the ones up til dawn of the dragon have been ok, but this is a true disappointment this game has killed spyro completely, if they want to make a new spyro game at least make it cool bring back nasty and ripto avalar bring back the home worlds and portals with the flight challenges, personally i would be in line at the door to get a updated ps3 version of the old spyro games or a new one with the old format, but this skylander thing is an epic fail.
If I had to describe this game with one word it would be, simple. The game play is simple, the story line is simple and the leveling up... simple. I'm 30 years old and I have to admit this game is fun. I'm want more characters and can't find them. haha. If your looking for a game that you can just sit down and play and tap into your inner child this game is pefect. Its a great game for kids, no violence or crude humor. Kind of takes me back to the Mario days on NES. Have fun and collect.
