Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure is an extremely well-designed game that is perfect for kids. Unfortunately for parents, this game is wonderful and addictive, meaning that most kids who get their hands on this will crave more characters to collect them all. More experienced and older gamers might not get the same unadulterated joy, but it’s still worthwhile, especially if you have younger kids or relatives. Skylanders kind of nails that Nintendo-esque feeling of a game that can be enjoyed by all ages. In that respect, it’s unfortunate that the figure-collecting might turn off an audience, but then again, it’s a defining feature that makes this one of the freshest and most ambitious gaming concepts in recent memory.

In closing, while I enjoyed Spyro’s darker years, I am definitely happy with the direction Toys for Bob and Activision have taken for the purple dragon. Skylanders signifies a new start for the franchise – a step back to Spyro’s roots, yet a step into the future.

Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventures is definitely a unique experience that is perfect for families and is sure to be the hot item this year if it takes off like I think it will. The game is fun though a little easy at times, but given the target market, that's to be expected. The hero challenges and completionist goals can definitely add some playability to the experience and the ability to use your character on every version of Skylanders makes it one of the most versatile experiences I’ve ever had the opportunity to enjoy. You can have plenty of fun with Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure for PC right of the box and look forward to the new locations available as they release this holiday season.

Activision took some giant risks when they decided to back Skylander Spyro’s Adventure as the technology behind the toy figures, the portal, and its cross-platforming abilities could not have come cheap. Not to mention, the games voice talent, the musical score composed by Hans Zimmer, and the marketing would have also run up a hefty tab. Yet with great risks comes great rewards and Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure is a prime example of that. Sure the toy figures and the illuminating Portal are neat; but the gameplay is highly enjoyable as well. Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure offers up a richer than expected experience as well as plenty of replay value to keep its younger target audience coming back for more. Needless to say, I am impressed and left with the opinion that parents can should pick the bundle up for their kids this holiday season as it should prove to be a popular purchase for all.

Skylanders is een slim concept dat uitstekend is uitgevoerd. De mooi ontworpen speelgoedpersonages die door de Portal-accessoire in de game tot leven komen, spelen de hoofdrol in een simpel maar doeltreffend en ontzettend charmerend ren- en vechtspel.

Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure, all'interno del genere dei titoli teen indirizzati quindi a un pubblico di ragazzi, è un prodotto per molti versi sorprendente nella qualità e cura con cui è stato realizzato. Pur essendo chiaro lo spirito commerciale del progetto, Skylanders non ha il sapore amaro dello sfruttamento becero di un pubblico manipolabile ma forte economicamente come quello dei bambini; al contrario, la produzione Activision è interessante, stimolante, piacevole e divertente. L'unico punto interrogativo sta quindi nella capacità della casa produttrice di rendere Skylanders un prodotto desiderabile al target di utenza prefissato, e questo può essere possibile soltanto passando attraverso un marketing di un certo tipo; vista la bontà del gioco, sarebbe un peccato non riuscirci.

If you are the type of person to baulk at add-ons for a product, then caution needs to be advised. There is plenty to enjoy about Skylanders, but be prepared, once you have experienced it you will almost certainly want to grab more of the toys. However, if you do let it grab you, this is a fantastic title that all ages can enjoy, albeit on differing levels.

Despite a couple of technical issues, Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure is a great spin-off of a venerable series with unique ideas that add to the overall fun. An engaging story with great voice acting and loads of content hooks you, while the co-op and battle modes keep you coming back with friends for more.

Yes, ultimately the content in the game is already on the disc and you have to pay money to unlock it, which sounds like BS. But even without the extras, Skylanders is a pretty substantial action game for kids (with a small cast). It's fun, it's challenging, the story is cute, and there is co-op. The potential to use these figures in future games, as well as the ability to trade them and use them cross platform makes this feel less like a gimmick and more like really cool tech.

Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure is a near-perfect conceptual marriage of toys and video games. While wallets may shudder at the thought of throwing down potentially lots and lots of money for the complete experience, what you get out of the box is a well-crafted adventure and world that kids of all ages can be excited about. The Power Portal offers a unique and quite fun dynamic that comes off as a seamless addition, helping cement Skylanders as an innovator in the toy field. Something tells us this isn't the last we'll see of the little critters.

However, if you’re willing to fork out the same amount of money as you would for the Skyrim Collectors Edition, then please be my guest. It’s an awesome game, the only caveat being that it has more hidden fees than most airlines.

Activision postanowiło podbić serca najmłodszych graczy i portfele ich rodziców. Atak ten może się udać – Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure w ciekawy sposób łączy świat zabawek z wirtualną rzeczywistością.

„Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure“ ist ein Spiel, das echtes Spielzeug mit virtuellem Spielzeug perfekt kombiniert. Aufgrund des raschen Wechsels der Figuren über das Portal, macht das Spiel noch mehr Spaß, auch wenn es sich nur um eine kleine technische Spielerei handelt. Aber Activision ist ja bekannt für seinen Peripherie-Verliebtheit, siehe "DJ Hero" oder "Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2011". Leider muss man sich die Figuren alle kaufen und kann sie nicht durch das Spiel freischalten. Wem der Kauf zu teuer ist, der kann das Spiel zwar durchspielen, sieht jedoch nicht einmal ansatzweise alles von den Skylands. Auch die groben Texturen und die verzögerte Synchronisation sind leider Schwachstellen. Die Möglichkeit aber, plattformübergreifend zu spielen, ist ebenfalls sehr verlockend – insbesondere in Verbindung mit dem Mehrspieler-Modus.

Although Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure is aimed at a youthful market, it’s one the rare titles which transcends it target demographic. By complementing it’s collection of well-made figurines with a lively action game, Toys For Bob has managed to upstage Pokémon developer Game Freak, bringing its roster of creatures into the real-world. If the next Spyro doesn’t force players to rebuild their collection and polishes some of this game’s uneven edges, I wouldn’t be surprised to see a throng of thirty-something’s lining up on launch day.

Skylanders : Spyro's Adventures repose sur un concept novateur et surtout diablement accrocheur, à base de figurines bien réelles à faire évoluer au sein du jeu. On se doute que ce système risque bien d'émerveiller les enfants, et même les plus grands n'y resteront peut-être pas insensibles. De quoi atténuer l'impression de déjà-vu qui nous saisira parfois en parcourant le jeu, non dénué d'un certain classicisme.

An entertaining platformer let down by a silly pay-to-play unlocking system.

I think if you’re looking for a fun kid’s game to toss under the Christmas tree this year, Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure is worth a look. It has some flaws, but the overall idea is well implemented, and pretty unique. It certainly tugs on the heart strings of the collector in me, and I’ll probably soon lose the ability to resist buying a few of the additional figures for myself. If the game ends up seeing a sequel, I hope the developers will try and expand upon the action RPG trappings a bit more though, as they could certainly use a bit of work. Still, not bad for a first go, and it’s worth taking a look at. I think it’ll be appreciated more by kids than adults, which it’s certainly targeting, but despite the faults it has I found myself enjoying it.

Mocht ontwikkelaar Toys for Bob niet vergeten zijn om innovatieve speelgoed meets gametechnologie te ruggensteunen met een plezierige game, had het met Skylanders puur goud in handen.
