Matt Helgeson writes: Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure is an odd title. It’s the most interesting entry in the Spyro universe since creators Insomniac parted ways with their cute purple dragon. However, it’s not what you expect. This is not a platformer – there’s not even a jump button. Instead, it’s a Diablo-style action/RPG loot-fest aimed at the younger set, augmented by an admittedly clever interface that allows you to swap in small figurines that become in-game characters through the use of a lighted base connected to your console.
