Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure
2 September 2013
Summary: Growing up in the nineties, I gained a certain affinity for contrived plastic gimmicks designed to be collected by compulsive children. The likes of Mini Boglins, Monster in My Pocket, and GoGo's Crazy Bones made up a huge part of my childhood, so it took little effort at all for me to care about Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure .
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: First things first - Skylanders Spyro's Adventures is not really a Spyro game, at least in the sense that it's not a direct descendent of the Spyro games that had their heyday on the last generation of consoles. Think of it as more of the first Skylanders game, and a game in which Spyro happens to appear as a playable character.
Excerpt: It's hard to imagine my childhood without toys. My room was full of the manly plastic awesomeness of the 80s: Thundercats, G.I. Joe, Transformers, Voltron, and DC’s Super Friends figures. By no small coincidence, these also happened to be the very same shows I would consume daily along with my morning cereal. Sure, there have been (and still are) plenty of shows that seem to exist mostly to sell the toys, but what about video games?
Excerpt: 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 worst sort of evil is kinda cute. Although the cost is significant, the idea is something that might catch on with young gamers and fans of entertainment that involves collecting of some kind.
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. Insomniac left the series to its own devices after that generation and ever since the series has gone from bad to worse.
Pros: The plastic figures and the portal work really well, lots of hours of gameplay with several characters, easy to get into, good voice acting.
Cons: Can get expensive rather quickly, the basic game has been seen many times before.
Skylanders revoluciona e mistura brinquedos e videogame
3 February 2012
Conclusion: Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure retorna com o famoso dragãozinho Spyro em uma aventura que reinicia seu mundo e a forma de se jogar com ele. Agora são utilizados brinquedos, os bonecos da linha Skylanders, que são lidos por um portal mágico e transmitidos para dentro do game. O jogo é divertido e deve agradar principalmente as crianças. Não espere por uma história muito bem desenvolvida, gráficos de ponta ou algo do tipo.
Summary: Während der Missionen zerstört ihr jede Menge Kisten, Truhen und anderes Inventar, die euch Lebensenergie und vor allem Geld bescheren. Damit kauft ihr Fähigkeiten der Skylanders und verbessert diese. Skylanders Spyro's Adventure ist ein liebevoll in Szene gesetztes Spiel mit einer tollen Idee als Grundlage. Die Symbiose aus greifbarem Spielzeug, Videospiel und Sammelreiz à la Pokémon spricht vor allem jüngere Spieler an.
Summary: Au final, Activision parvient à réussir son pari en réunissant tout un univers autour d’une simple figurine en plastique. La technologie mise au point marche à la perfection et tout est fait pour que les plus jeunes deviennent accroc. Cependant, avec un côté trop enfantin, le jeu se ferme à une bonne partie du public qui n’hésite pourtant pas à jouer à Pokemon.
Pros: La technologie, Les différentes statuettes bien finies, Le côté accrocheur du jeu
Cons: Trop enfantin, Assez cher sur la durée pour les collectionneurs
