Hi guys. I just though I'd start a thread where we can discuss the game's reviews so far. I haven't seen a lot of marketing for the title so far( I live in Australia) but maybe there are ads on kids TV which i'm unaware of.
So far the game is getting some positive reviews which to be honest caught me off guard. The two reviews so far are:
Jim sterling gave the game an 8/10 citing the unique characters, strong art style and cross platform play as strong points of the game.
2. Game informer:
Game informer gave the game an 8/10 as well noting the games 20 hour length, excellent co-op and a strong roster of characters.
7.5/10. The commend the games RPG style progression and the interesting comment. The criticize the game's cost and lack of online co-op.
4. Telegraph UK
8/10. The writer appreciates the novel concept and admits that most parents might enjoy playing the game. The game sparked his kid's imagination as well. He criticized the cost and some difficulty spikes during boss battles.
I'll update this page as more reviews come in. If there are reviews I've missed please let me know.
There is a quick look on the site as well.http://www.giantbomb.com/quick-look-skylanders-spyros-adventure/17-5098/
Kotaku also have a nice video showing how the game works and I won't lie, my inner child really wants this game but i can't justify the purchase so far. The video shows how the portal works and how the characters are represented in game.
Have any of you guys bought the game yet? Does your experience reflect the critics' reviews? Comment below.
