The Hottest new console game craze Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure is a solid choice
Holiday shoppers this past Christmas were treated to one of the largest toy IP launches ever with the release of Activision Publishing, Inc’s Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure. The game accessories, figures, and line quickly moved to the top of everyone’s holiday must-have list as retailers across the country stocked shelves with the affordable and vibrant figures. Since then a new line of figures called Skylanders Giants is proposed for release in the Fall of 2012 which will add both physical size (more than twice that of existing figures) and count to the already successful line of 30 figures to choose from.
In Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure children pick the colorful figure they want to play and place it on the portal of power. The figure, through the ‘brain’ contained within it, magically appears in the game world. If the child wants a new figure he or she picks it up off the portal and replaces it, the game does the rest.
Once inside the console game world children can interact with each other helping their friends the Skylanders move through a unique and imaginative story created by Joel Cohen and Alec Sokolow who also brought you the plot to the feature film Toy Story. If the children aren’t interested in story driven play there are many mini games as well for them to enjoy. Additionally, Activision Publishing, Inc has broadened the games playability through an online component called Skylanders Spyro’s Universe where the children use the same figures they’ve grown to love in the console game in an online game setting.
Best of all any of the figures from Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure are compatible with any console game system. As long as friends have a portal of power connected to their game system or computer the figures work. No setting changes, no configuration, no pairing. Just drop the figure on the portal of power and you’re off on an adventure at your friend’s house.
Activision Publishing has put some thought into the platform as well. With the expansion release in the fall of 2012 and the Skylanders Giants line as well as eight additional figures consumers have been assured of compatibility through and through. No requirements to purchase expensive upgrades or hardware to continue to use the original figures so recently purchased. Everything just works together. All that hard work to level up those characters, hard-won items, statistic customization will all be 100% intact and compatible with Skylanders Giants.
If you’re a console gamer, know a console gamer, or are thinking of becoming one Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure is an excellent choice. The customizable play offers something for everyone. The ever growing field of figures is both fun to play with and look at. The vision already shown by the games creators demonstrates this franchise is here to stay and will offer surprises in the long run. Innovative, affordable, and fun; Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure is the total package of console gaming for 2012.
