When I asked my 7 year old step son what he wanted for Christmas, there was only one thing on his list… Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure. Being aware of the original series, I was totally baffled when he tried to explain what it was. A couple of days later, I was offered the opportunity to review the game and everything become clear!
Activisions Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventures is a multi player adventure game for all ages. Bringing this new concept in gaming to your living room, just in time for Christmas, the game features Spyro (which you may know from the PS1 series years ago) and his friends Trigger Happy and Gill Grunt. ‘For Generations, the Skylanders have used their magical powers and weapons to protect Skylands. But now, an evil tyrant has frozen them and banished them to Earth. Only you can put them on the Portal Of Power and bring them to life to save Skylands forever.’
The pack comes with a ‘portal of power’ which brings your character to life on screen. It’s a beautifully thought out game which will certainly not disappoint your little one this Christmas. As well as the characters, portal of power and the game, the pack also includes trading cards, a sticker sheet and webcodes to use on the Skylander site. A great package to give your little one this Christmas and there are also 30 characters to collect keeping the adventure alive.
The game is available on XBOX 360, Playstation 3 and Nintendo Wii. RRP is £59.99, however, is available from a number of online retailers for around £45. This is going to be a clear winner this Christmas!
