Why Skylanders Deserves Your Attention

1UP- The Skylanders franchise, to the untrained eye, looks like something developed in a management board room, much like the He-Man and Transformers cartoons of the '80s -- engineered solely to sell children the next wave of toys. Compounding the negative aura around the budding new franchise is the fact that the publisher is Activision, noted for their oversaturation of the Guitar Hero and Call of Duty franchises.

As such, Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure appeared to be a hollow game meant to ensnare children in a Pokemon-like fashion when it saw the light of day in early 2011. The truth is that while the game's mission might be to make money, Skylanders' soul is firmly planted in the realm of great video games.

The story is too old to be commented.

good game really is,but why did they murder spyro

They rapped Spyro and it milks money out of parents for those crappy little toys. This DOES NOT deserve our attention, it's worse then what Activision do to COD. Buy a figure for £6 so you can unlock a little section on the disc...thats like what Capcom do when they disc lock content.

It's the same as collecting baseball cards or comics.
It does deserve your attention if you're a parent and have kids that are into this.

I can't believe this hasn't been done with Pokemon or Yu-Gi-Oh.

Sony had Eye of Judgement but it wasn't marketed towards the kids but to me that was a great idea.

I don't even recall the last time I ever purchased an Activision game, but definitely not going to play this. I am not some 12 year old with billionaire parents handling every game to me on a silver platter. This game tends to market to that demographic.
