  A surprisingly fun game... even for a 29 yr old!

Ok im not a child, but I still love this game.

Granted the graphics are nothing amazing. Infact they are kind of dated, but the gameplay is spot on. Its a great game to just pick up, play and get an hour or two of fun out of it.The story line leaves a lot to be desired, but its enough to drive the game forward.

The main side being the toy and portal mechanism...

...it works! Its so simple and yet it makes the game so much more fun. You can almost instantly change a different character into the game, level up, collect gold and swap over again.

All the characters have a different feel to them, a different look, element, fighting style and so on. They all level to 10 (pretty clickly) and have a pretty large number of abilities and upgrades to buy.

But you have to accept that if you buy this... you WILL end up buying more toys. If you want to play this game 100% you will need at least one toy of each element to unlock all areas in each chaptor.

It will be expensive... but you have to accept that if you wish to play this game. Its stupidly addictive how the game makes you want to buy more.

You have to give them credit for creating such a simple and yet effective marketting scheme.

Be warned... this is a great and simple game.... which will make you want to buy more. Dont buy it if you are worried about that side. But otherwise its a great game.

Not only do you get an awesome game but you get a wireless portal and 3 starting figures. This is a first in games with its interactive character selecting portal that really brings the collectable figures to life in the game, play through it using different elemental characters to unlock further game areas and special items. Its a fun game that everyone can play even the big kids in us all love it. Upgrade your characters for some special powers to help defeat skylands invaders. I would recommend this game to everyone its rekindled my childhood love of the original spyrpo games that I once played on PS1. A must have! With Great graphics and a brilliant story line this game has me hooked.
