Game Informer - Skylander's: Spyro's Adventure Review

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.

"It’s the most interesting entry in the Spyro universe since creators Insomniac parted ways with their cute purple dragon."

I wouldn't go that far. I still think 'A Hero's Tail' is by far the best post-Insomniac Spyro game because it (mostly) followed the classic formula.

Skylanders is a decent enough game, but it's not going to be a game that people will still talk about 10+ years from now, unlike the original games which are still popular to this day.

The game is somewhat a step in the right direction for the series, but there is still a lot of things that need fixing. The game plays too much like a Diablo-styled action/RPG, which is not a good thing for a Spyro game, and of course, there is also the toy issue...

The developers have said (many months ago) that if the game is successful they will give Spyro his own games again (which means no more useless toys, since there is only one playable character), separate from future Skylanders games. When/IF this happens, they need to make the Spyro games play more like the originals. Keep the dungeon crawler gameplay away from Spyro, please!
