Product Description

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.

Amazon.com

Skylanders Spyro's Adventure is an Action-Adventure game spin-off from the Spyro series designed for younger players that unlocks a whole new game universe while incorporating a unique gameplay mechanic utilizing more than 30 physical action figures that synch with consoles, creating a controllable in-game representation of that figure. The first release in the Skylander series, Skylanders Spyro's Adventure Starter Pack contains three action figures, an exclusive game peripheral as well as other items. Action figures are compatible with all versions of the game. The game features co-op and competitive multiplayer, mini-games and more.

The Skylanders Story

For generations, the Skylanders -- a diverse group of mythical creatures, each with their own powers, personality and tendencies -- have used their magical powers, weapons and levelable battle skills to protect their homeland, the Skylands. But now, an evil tyrant with the powers of a portal master has frozen and banished them to Earth. Only you, a portal master yourself, can physically put Skylanders on the Portal of Power -- a conduit between this world and theirs -- and bring them back to life in their world where they can battle to save Skylands forever.

Action Figures with Brains

Skylanders are special physical action figures that come to life in-game. Just take a Skylander, place it on the included Portal of Power, which is synched to your game console and a representation of your chosen Skylander will come to life in the video game and do your bidding. There are over 30 Skylanders in total - each with unique abilities and powers (three are included in your starter pack). Skylander action figures remember their in-game experiences and upgrades as they explore the mysterious world of Skylands, battle menacing creatures and collect treasures. Conveniently, it doesn't matter what gaming system your friends have at their house, the Skylanders work on and across all major video game systems. That means that you can take your Skylanders over to your friend's house, drop them on their Portal of Power and your Skylanders will come to life in the game.

Key Game Features

  • Everything Needed to Get Started - The Skylanders Spyro's Adventure Starter Pack contains everything needed to get started including: a game copy for Xbox 360, 3 Skylanders (Trigger Happy, Spyro and Gill Grunt), 'Portal of Power' peripheral, character poster, trading cards, sticker sheet, web codes and batteries).
  • Multiplayer - Put two Skylanders on the Portal of Power and battle with your friend as a team or pick a Battle Arena and go head-to-head against your friend to see who is the best Portal Master. Either way it's a fight to the finish.
  • Battle to Save Skylands - Use your character collection to battle KAOS and his minions. Each of your Skylanders has special abilities and powers. The more you play, the more powerful they become.
  • Adventures, Mini-games and Puzzles - There are different challenges and mini-games waiting throughout Skylands. Jump in a turret to fend off enemies and solve challenging puzzles to find secret areas and earn cool in-game rewards.
  • Play Online - Each Skylander comes with a unique secret code. Show off your collection to your friends and play fun new mini-games.
  • Expand Your Adventure - Pick up an Adventure Pack (sold separately). Each one includes an exclusive Skylander, 1-Location Piece and 2-Magic Items. Place the Location Piece on the Portal of Power to explore exclusive new worlds and embark on new adventures and challenges.

4.0 out of 5 stars Your Kids Will Love This Game November 10, 2011
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Length: 3:13 Mins
My two kids (8 and 6) are in love with this game. It is a great two-player game.
The technology is great.
If you loved the Lego-type games but want something a "little more",
this might be it.

Fun co-op as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good old fashioned Chaos! The best kind! November 21, 2011
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
After seeing the displays in every store I went into, i finally decided to break down and buy this game, and boy am i glad i did. This game is super simple to play with really only two buttons used (triangle and square on the PS3) and no jumping makes this game really easy to play for the younger players and i think fans of the old school platform games will really enjoy this one as well.

The game comes with three characters (Gill Grunt, Spyro, and Trigger Happy) These three are a great trio to start with, (Trigger Happy is my favorite) however you will need to buy more characters to access certain parts of the game. I bought one of each elements so that i could go everywhere and do everything. This can get expensive, but it is well worth it for the quick changing that can be done via the portal of power. If you need a different Skylander, just remove the one that you are using and replace it with a different one.

The game play is simple with very little reading for the little ones that still have trouble reading, however the speech is audible and the kids can just listen.

All in all i would recommend this game to anyone who has little ones or is a fan of the platform games. The game offers a two player co-op mode so parents can play along. The game also offers a few mini games including battle mode, a football type game and grab the gems. These games are fun and a good way to test drive new characters.

One of the most amazing features is the fact that the figures are cross platform compatible. For instance, if i want to take my figures for PS3 over to a friends house who has an XBOX 360 or Wii, then its no problem all of the information is stored in the figure.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun game, great toys October 18, 2011
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
After reading the solitary '1 star' review above, I had to jump in and write my own review.

I bought Skylanders and sure, the initial $70 was a bit much but it was for my kid, although as my wife says 'yeah, right'. Anyway! He has so much fun with this game! He takes Spyro around everywhere with him and has Trigger Happy proudly positioned on top of my Monitor (which looks weird) and Gill Grunt is guarding the bathroom. Kids eh? But, whenever he fires the game up, there's a blur and the toys are gone.

When he plays, he collects everything and just has a lot of fun playing it. He loves when Spyro does the charge attack but when he saw Trigger Happy's mini-gun attack, I'm sure his eyes almost burst out of his head.

Anyway, if you have kids (or you want to buy it 'for your kid') then this game is a must! Its fun. In fact, i'm going to say it's GREAT fun and, after all, isn't that the important thing?

Oh, you don't need to buy any other toy to play the game but I just ordered Prism Break and Chop-Chop because, well, they look so cool! Oh, yeah, and my kid likes them too. Sigh, I wonder where Chop-Chop will end up 'guarding'.

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
If you're reading this you're probably already familiar with this games gimmick, but I'll explain it anyway. It comes with a "Portal of power" and three figurines that you put on the portal, and in turn, they are "transported" into the game. There are, from what I understand,30 some toys in all, which can be bought separately, or there are some three character packs available, as well as some "Adventure packs" which Include one new character, a new level, and a couple of items that can be placed on the portal to help you, such as a potion, or defensive swords that circle you. A full collection of all the toys, and the game itself, will probably run you upwards of 300 dollars. Is it worth it? That all depends on whether you like the game or not, and your fiscal state. If you are a parent you should be warned that your children will not be satisfied with the three toys that come with the game, as there are eight character elements, and you need at least one character of each element to unlock all the areas in the game.That aside they will probably want as many toys as they can get their hands on, so if you just plan on getting them a starter pack and nothing more they will probably be sorely disappointed and frustrated. It IS alot of money for a game, but really, the toys are half the fun. I admit it is a gimmick, but it is a very clever gimmick and one that appeals to me.

The story in the game is pretty basic stuff, probably geared towards between 6-10.You're the chosen portal master, and it's up to you to save Skylands, or something like that.The voice acting is well done,even if what is being said is somewhat corny at times.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good and Bad January 17, 2012
By Whitney
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
First of all, I was very much excited about this game...especially buying the characters. They are only expensive if you try to order them. ($8 at walmart) Upon beginning the game, the intro movie bothered me a bit...even using the words "and now we have come to your planet so you can buy us."

Upon playing the game once, I decided I wanted the "hex" character. I tried not to play it until I had it...and yet the stores were ALWAYS out..(as everyone else has said.) I looked for it every day for about two weeks, and eventually had to settle for a "sonic boom," because it was the first one I found. I sat down for another good playing session, and a couple hours later, the game ended. I literally played this game twice, and it was over.

THE GOOD: Very innovative. The portal is awesome, and I experienced no glitches with it...(like I thought I would.) I love the divisions of characters, and how they are different "types" like Pokemon. Also like that its a 2-player story type game.(never played one of those.)

THE BAD: Never got to use all the different characters(which is the games best aspect) due to not being able to find them, and the game being SO short. Also...EASY EASY EASY. You basically walk down a path, beat some monsters, get a key, open a door, and repeat. Also, its pricey, but you spend what you want. Very childish in its dialogue as well...(If Flynn had mentioned ladies, or if Kaos had used the word "evil" one more time, I would have lost my mind.)

THE END RESULT: I give this game three stars for its innovativeness and for its awesome characters. It loses two stars for the shortness of it, the price for what you get, and the fact that the storyline and different worlds within it are just "okay." (especially compared to the previous spyro games.
