Summary: Spyro was a perfect series with a perfect little purple dragon. Then activision had to kill the series and release this... thing. Its not fun at ALL and its got bad controls. It even has horrible acting. And YOU CANT EVEN JUMP. This is a platform game? LOL! No. See my recommendations for TRUE spyro games.
Excerpt: Very upsetting....I ordered this for my son for Xmas. The shipping address was incorrecto. I made 5 calls to Toys r Us. Each time they attempted to correcto the situation but ended up not being able to change the shipping address to the correct city & State. Every time they told me to Hold for a manager, they were all unavailable. Needless to say...I never Got the item!
Summary: this is not spyro. This game is not good either. Its really boring and you HAVE TO buy all the toys to fully enjoy the game. Nope i will not. Check out the product reccomendations for the REAL spyro games that were not developed by a noob company.
Summary: We got Skylanders (starter pack) for Christmas and with great excitement got stuck in! My brother and I spent some of our Christmas money on three extra figures. Unfortunately we finished each chapter in about ten minutes and the whole game was complete within one week. What a waste of money. We'd finished the game even before one figure arrived in the post! The 22 chapters were so short it was unbelievable.
Summary: I bought the 3DS version for my son and 2 extra characters for an additional £7-99 each. He has completed all the game he can with this. He has only played for about 2 or 3 hours. To have more levels, we have to buy more expansions packs (new toys). Please read this. [...] I would not buy this game if I knew what it was. In my opinion, and that of many others, this game is a disgusting rip-off, Stay clear.
Summary: As huge fans of Skylanders since we first purchased it for our daughter at Christmas, we thought that our first leap into an adventure pack would begin a WHOLE new adventure. How wrong we were! Our daugher, aged 11 and by no means a square eyed child who spends much of her time in front of games, managed to complete the level in just over 20 minutes. For eighteen quid, we think it is a total rip off!
Summary: The main thing about this game is that you have to buy characters on the hoof. They cost 18.00 GBP for three. But this does not mean that you get any more content - no - there is no extra download for the character you have bought, instead its locked in the game you have already paid for! I have a child with autism and this has led to a VERY expensive buy. Be warned. The "portal" drains batteries at a very fast rate too as this is not connectable to the PS3 power system.
