    The developers of Skylanders said that when they first acreoaphpd a new Spyro game, they wanted something dark, bloody, and violent. After a while, they realized that’s not what gamers wanted from another Spyro game, so they went back to the drawing board and came up with the ingenious idea of interacting with physical toys to power a video game. That idea works brilliantly, but as an adult gamer, I can also see where their original desire to create a game for older players shines through, even if only a little bit. Make no mistake this is a game designed for kids. But any geeky adult, of either the standard hardcore gamer or the action figure-collecting variety, will likely fall in love with the mechanics in play here. Especially if you’ve got friends (or your kids have friends) that pick this up, too. In a nutshell, the game is powered by your physical action figures, which load up your in-game characters when they’re placed on the Portal pad. The figurines have memory chips, and your in-game progress and awards/power-ups are stored on the physical pieces themselves, meaning you can take one of the figures over to a friends house to hop into their game. And here’s the kicker it doesn’t matter if your friend is playing on Wii, PS3, Xbox, or even 3DS because the figures store their in-game progress, it doesn’t matter what console or device you play them on. I plan on picking up the 3DS version as well, so I can play with my characters on the big screen at home, and them bring them with me on the road whenever I can.As far as actual gameplay goes, the first hour is slow, but the platforming and puzzles start to get much more interesting after that. And after you start opening up the world, it really feels like an old-school Spyro game (PS1 era, like the original). This starter pack includes 3 figures: 1 tech, 1 magic, and 1 water. Those are 3 of the EIGHT elements in the game. So make no mistake: if you want to play 100% of the game, you WILL have to purchase at least 1 figure from each of the other elements. They can be easily found for $8 each, or $20 for a 3-pack. There are also Adventure packs that are $20 and come with a character, a level (more like a world), and some extra bonus items. Those adventure packs are the worst deal, in my opinion, but it looks like they’ll almost be required purchases if you want to collect all 32 of the Skylanders figures. All things considered, I’m very pleasantly surprised by this game. It’s got some depth for the pen-and-paper gamers out there (represent), but will also really light up most kids. Very interactive and original. Can’t wait to see how they expand this franchise.
