Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure
28 January 2012
Excerpt: About 3 years ago, I reviewed the last Spyro game and I've been wondering what happened to Spyro ever since. It turns out that he's been hanging out in Skyland with the rest of the Skylanders and Eon. I loved the original Spyro games. The colorful worlds and characters were entertaining and fun.
Conclusion: Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure isn't a great game, but it's not a bad one. If you're a kid, the draw is probably irresistible. If you're a parent, the high price tag will probably send you running for the hills.
Conclusion: As a game designed to appeal to young boys and sell more merchandise, Skylanders achieves its goals. In the annals of games as marketing tools though, it isn't as compelling as classics like Cool Spot or Chex Quest .
Excerpt: Skylands is in danger! An unnamed Darkness looms over the horizon, the Skylanders have been shrunk down and whisked away to earth and it is up to the new portal master to rescue them from retailers everywhere (for a mere eight bucks a pop) so they can save the day.
Pros: Leveling up characters, Collecting hats, Using the Portal with the action figures
Cons: Level structure lacks variety, Limited multiplayer modes, Buying characters to access portions of the game
Excerpt: I have a very vivid memory from early childhood. I'm six or seven years old, sprawled out on the upstairs landing. The summer sunshine is dappling through the window, as it so often does in rose-tinted flashbacks.
Conclusion: It's easy to forget, but long before the talented developers at Insomniac Games got involved with Ratchet & Clank and Resistance, they were best known for the Spyro series - the closest thing the original Playstation had to a proper Mario 64 challenger.
Summary: Skylanders er et af de mest revolutionerende spil de seneste mange år og præsenterer computerspil på en helt nye måde - nemlig sammen med plastik-figurer. Det er sjovt, spændende og tæt på genialt. Skylanders er en af de fem bedste udgivelser i 2011.
