Quoted from the review: "Activision flew me out to California to spend a day at Toys for Bob for a studio tour, discussion opportunity with developers, and gameplay session with Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure.
Toys for Bob studio president and creative director, Paul Reiche, made it clear straight from the introduction of Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure that his passion in creating video games throughout the years has always been about monsters. From Dungeons & Dragons to the Star Control series, monsters have been at the forefront of the design process. Skylanders was often described as simply being a game about monsters. After spending some quality time with the game in both single player and cooperative play, I was able to see their fascination with bringing these monster heroes and heroines to life and how that translated into an unique gaming experience not seen before on any platform."
