Product Description

Platform: Nintendo Wii

As a teaser for some more detailed Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure news that we will be bringing you next week during E3, Activision has released some character vignettes, which tell us a little more about the characters that are set to feature in the game’s starter pack. Skylanders Spyro’s adventure involves real life toys, which players will have to place on the Portal of Power to bring them into the game. The three toy characters that come in the starter pack are: Spyro, Gill Grunt and Trigger Happy. We have some information and some short clips where players can see all three characters in action.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Mom's Review of Skylanders October 24, 2011
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm sure I'm not the only mom who looked at this and thought, hmmm, collectible video game, my kids are SOOOO gonna beg for this! Especially since my son already loves Spyro! But, I wasn't sure whether this would be appropriate, especially for my son, who is not quite six and therefore a little bit below the target audience. Well, since I got a chance to get it through the Vine program, I thought I'd try it and see.

Now obviously I have not played through the entire game. I'm a MOM, I don't have the spare time to play these things all the way through! But I have played it for about an hour at this point, so for you moms out there who are trying to decide whether you should hit the 'Add to Cart' button, this is what I found out.


The video game comes with little toy accessories. To play the game, you put one of the little figures on a little 'portal' that comes with the game. Make sure you put the portal where it won't get knocked over mid-game, as this will disconnect the character! Fortunately it is wireless, so it's not hard to find a safe place to put it. But, do keep it accessible, because you have to put figures on the portal as you play. The figure you put on the portal controls which character you play in the game, and different characters have different powers, and are able to use different items and get to different areas in the game. You can also change figures mid-game if you decide you want a different power for a certain area - the game is actually designed for you to do this quite a lot. Also, a second child can join in by putting a second figure on the portal for co-op play.

As for gameplay, it's pretty basic.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Game ... BUT ... January 10, 2012
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
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.

First, this is a game for kids to play as young as 4 and as old as 80. Yet another strong marketing move by Activision to create such an incredibly imaginative game for the 4-15 age range. Also this game isn't ridiculously hard at any time and it never gets violent or bloody.


Part of the fun, and downfall, is collecting the little characters which there are currently 32 of. Lots of retailers, including Amazon sell them, but as of right now -- everyone is sold out - everywhere.

Everyone is clamoring for these things and people are sadly taking advantage of that and reselling them for almost a hundred bucks on Ebay. It makes no sense that they have lots of the same characters that are available in the combination packages, which are the only ones left. I think you can still buy Trigger Happy and Boomer just about everywhere.

Finding Air Characters - as well as the Legendary Versions? Good luck, we've searched all over Southern California and have come up empty. Activision should've really bulked up before the season. Perhaps they were wondering if this game was going to be a success or fall flat. I think they have an answer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Skylanders Wii Review December 8, 2011
A Kid's Review
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is what I think of Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure on the Wii

Skylanders was going to be a T-rated game called Spyro's Kingdom, but they canceled it and made Skylanders instead. The game has 32 (33 if you count Dark Spyro) characters called Skylanders to use. The story is like this: The games world, Skylands, has a machine that protects it. But the bad guy, Kaos, destroyed it, so now he has a chance to take over Skylands. There's two main goals for Skylanders. 1) fix the machine by finding it's parts, and 2) defeat Kaos. Now for the pros and cons:


+ The game can be played by anyone in the family, my 6 year-old brother and I played once, and me and my dad play alot too!

+ Skylanders have varied powers, like Trigger Happy goes insane going BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM!, and Hex is a strategic character.

+ Two kinds of multi-player: PvP and Co-Op. PvP let's two players battle, and Co-Op let's two players do a chapter together.

+ There's almost nothing scary or violent in this. You have to expect a low amount of violence in a game like this, and Kaos' giant, fake ghost head may scare the younger kids, but besides that, there's nothing like that.


- It's a little expensive to finish 100 percent. To do it, you need a starter kit (69.99), and 5 more figures (7.99 each) just to unlock all the treasures in the game!

- If you lose a figure, it's a big problem. You lose all progress (level, upgrades, and loot) the Skylander had, and you need to buy the figure again!

- The Portal of Power is a little fussy sometimes. It may refuse to turn on sometimes, and it may turn off and turn back on. In Co-Op, this may switch the Skylanders the players were using.

Skylanders is a good family game, and I would give it 20 stars, but the reviews only allow 5!
