Summary: Skylanders is a fun game, but I don't really like obvious cashgrabs. This is one of those games where they are so obviously trying to squeeze money out of the consumer, in order to play a game, that I just have to shake my head. They could have put this game out without the figurines and it would've been much the same experience. You even have to buy a minimum of eight figurines to play through all of the game's content. It's just tasteless. But again, it is a fun game.
Summary: When I got this game for christmas I was so EXCITED!!! I would play adventure mode with my sister or a friend.I wouldn't stop collecting skylanders.I would play it every time I had the chance.But then it came to the point where I finished the game.I would still play it but not as much as I did before.Then I realized it was boring.If they made a skylanders two I would buy it.They should lower the price,make new skylanders,and make the game longer.Then it would be a better...
Summary: The video game: Skylander, Spyro's adventure was OK, for a while. I first saw it on a TV commercial, and it looked fun. I got it later and it was awesome! So then, I invited my friend over, (who didn't have skylanders) and we all had loads of fun. That week, he moved to a new state so my brother and I are the only ones who play it. A week later, we beat adventure mode. And nothing happened after, no reward in game but a "congrats.
Summary: Clearly, this game is the Dungeons & Dragons of this generation, with game play centering on buying little figurines, just like D&D and also buying upgrade missions (obviously many more to come in the months ahead), just like D&D. A lot of people reading this may not understand this point, but those old enough that played Dungeons & Dragons know full well the truth of it. This was a brilliant and long-awaited brain storm by Activision.
Summary: Even though this is a good game and very popular with kids, it is a nightmare for parents as you have to spend hundreds of pounds for the whole set of figures. I have purchased this game along with 7 extra figures, 2 adventures packs (as i have 2 boys and they want one each) rechargable battery pack for the portal and a skylanders bag to keep all the figures in and this has added up to almost £200 already and there are still more figures to collect even though i doubt i...
Summary: Like most children my 7 year old son saw this advertised on TV and loved it. He actually saved up to buy it and it seemed like a great game with a unique idea. He and I became quickly disappointed. With the addition of some extra figures he quickly finished the whole game. I then ended up buying the adventure sets to gain additional chapters and was again disappointed to find that each £20 set only gave you one extra chapter.
Summary: Skylanders for the WII is amazing, my Son, Daughter and Wife all love it, the Characters are well designed and seem child proof (in that they can't break bits of it) the Portal of power is incredibly clever and must use some kind of Near Field Connector technology. The game is colourful and engaging. I do find the storytelling and video snippets slow and perhaps aimed at a younger age group than my 8 year old.
Summary: Well, the game itself is great - bought as a christmas present for my 5 year old son who really loves it. The characters are great and the game is easy to follow. This is also helped by the fact that the characters conversations not only appear in speech bubbles like many games (difficult if children can't fully read everything) but are also spoken. Good graphics and concept. However, whilst I initially would have left my review at that....
