great fighter, easy to maneuver,
This review is from: Skylanders Spyro's Adventure: Dino-Rang (Accessory)
We just got the Skylanders game/set for Christmas, and it has quickly become a family obsession. This game has been a lot of fun, and something my 7 year old, my husband, AND I have all enjoyed playing together.
Dino-Rang was one of the first characters we purchased outside of the starter kit, and he came in a 3 character pack that also included Zap and Hex (will review those characters separately).
Dino-Rang is a Dinosaur of the Earth Element. His starting abilities include:
* Health: 300
* Speed: 43
* Armor: 30
* Critical Hit: 30
* Elemental Power: 25
His primary power (A Button) allows him to throw boomerangs at attackers. His secondary power (B Button) allows him to throw boomerangs that circle around himself as a shield while also doing damage to attackers (this is helpful during close ranged attacks). These 2 powers make him a decent fighter, even right out of the box, prior to updates. Dino-Rang sort of reminds me of Trigger Happy in the way that they both are easy to maneuver and fight well.
Now, for info on Dino's upgrades:
Once you've collected enough gems, coins, and other treasure, you can use these to trade in to Persephone the Fairy (once you find her) in exchange for Character Upgrades. Character upgrades give you options to improve Primary and Secondary abilities, and to even add a Tertiary ability.
Some of Dino-Rang's upgrades include: increasing his Primary Power to cause greater damage with his boomerangs, and increasing his Secondary Power to give his boomerang shields more strength and control. Then there is also a Tertiary Ability (Z Button) that you can add on once you have accumulated enough points: the Stone Fists Ability. This allows Dino to summon Stone Fists that come up from underground and destroy attackers.
