GamesEyeView - Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure Review

GEV says: There are 2 viewpoints we would like to focus on with this latest installment in the Spyro Series by Activision. On one hand we have the target audience, the younger children that will ultimately fall in love with Characters/figurines, on the other we have the parents that will either cave in to their offspring’s demands or hear about it at every turn.

Typically when a series is developed, there is a certain level of consistency that one would come to expect after X amount of titles are released. In Spyro’s case there’s sparks (Spyro’s loyal dragonfly health meter), and the sheep we love to head-butt and roast to regain health. The sheep are here in this game, sans the health restoration properties. Alas, Sparks is also absent from this title. The sheep are still roastable, but there’s really no satisfaction in it. In truth, we feel that even though Spyro is in the game, this really shouldn’t be labeled as “Spyro’s Adventure.” That would be like calling SoulCalibur IV “Vader’s Adventure.” The game isn’t about the individual character. (3DS, PS3, Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure, Wii, Xbox 360)

Wow, what a TERRIBLE article. She spends 2/3rds of the article writing about how different it is from previous Spyro games. Skylanders is NOT A PLATFORMER, so why she spends multiple paragraphs lamenting how the game doesn't have platforming segments "LIKE THE OTHER SPYRO GAMES" is laughable.

"Lamenting" is an awful strong word considering every one of those "multiple paragraphs" gives a "point/counterpoint" approach to the game, citing what it does, and what it does not offer. But it's clear by the fact that in the last 2 weeks the only articles you've commented on have been about Skylanders, that you love the game. That's fine. Good for you.

But the review also points out, quite clearly, that the game requires almost double it's face value in extra purchases to unlock all of the content on the disc. You may disagree with the score. You may disagree with the reasons for the score. That is your right. But you are being disingenuous in your characterization of the review.
