Cool figurine and good unique abilities, but I don't like using him
on March 19, 2012
Prism Break is a cool Skylander because of his ability to break crystals and rocks in the game without the use of a pickaxe. The unfortunate things is that he's just a hard character to use during battles.
-He's slow, he can't fly, and doesn't really have options to get any faster.
-His energy beam must be held down to do damage, but you can't move while using it. You can't "shoot & run" which is necessary against many stronger enemies.
-You can drop crystals, which create multiple beams when directing your lasers through it, but to do this you have to position yourself just right then remain in that position. It's just not realistic to set up several crystals then daisy-chain your beams through them - battles in this game just aren't that strategic.
This was my son's #1 wanted Skylander, but as the levels get harder, we found ourselves using him much less often.
