Still it's better than him being truly dead, it least now he has a chance to get his own game.

And Darkmaster when was Spyro ever not childish and why is that a bad thing?

The original spyro games were for kids, but they weren't childish, I'm sad that this generation is gonna remember spyro as that character in skylanders

That actually kinda depends what you call "childish". It was aimed at kids, had a colorful, kid-friendly palette, the main character was quite childish (crude humor, child-like ignorance, etc.)

The thing you might be pointing at when you say "childish" game is the gameplay, which was rather refined and difficult (at least for the first few playthroughs) for a game (which back then was par for the course but today would be laughed out of the dev room because they want to "make games anyone can play", which seems to be code for "make games too easy for 90% of everyone so the 10% can feel good about themselves and not spread hate about our game")

Re: Official "This game sucks!" thread

-Design sucks
-Having to buy figures to get into areas sucks
-Having a portal that requires batteries sucks
-The name sucks
-The spyro design sucks
-The music sucks


Not to mention this is a PLATFORM GAME SERIES and you cant even jump. Plus, the camera angles are terrible.

I would of enjoyed skylanders if spyro was in his design from classic or Legend look, and the camera was like the first 3 spyros. But no.

Re: Official "This game sucks!" thread

Activision is using a different tactic, having a different developer make Swap Force while TFB works on the possible fourth game.

Re: Official "This game sucks!" thread

I like skylanders...only if im super bored. I only have 3 toys to play with and one game tongue I got it as a gift, not something i asked for but my father assumed because of how much i loved spyro, I'd love this.

So i don't hate the game. But i hate it as a spyro game
(wait its NOT a spyro game. problem solved!)

What really *bleep*s me off is that they just threw spyro in there, disregarding making a proper game for him. I won't lie, I actually tweeted activision asking if they were going to make spyro his own games again, and all they could answer with was ''we have no information on that.'' Go figure. Not that i expected to get a straight yes or no answer tongue

Re: Official "This game sucks!" thread

Putting spyro into the skylanders serie is like putting the tranformers into star trek and making lots of figurines... The results MIGHT be good but you shouldnt mix franchises up for the sake of popularity!

Re: Official "This game sucks!" thread

Toys being put on a portal to be transported into a game was already a selling idea. So did they really need to throw spyro in there too? The game still would have made a hella amount of money and become successful I'm sure tongue If they weren't going to make spyro his own game, they could have at least sold him to another company or somethin who would actually WANT to do something for spyro, rather than just throw him in their own game

Re: Official "This game sucks!" thread

I Hate This Crap...
Skylanders? What The Heck Is That Meant To Be?
Just... You Spend Freaking 70 Dollars For A Battery-Working Portal And Three Toys?
And A Stupid Game, Where You Can't Even JUMP?

Well, That's Why Spyro Fans Shall Make A New Spyro Game.
That What's I Am Planning.

Maybe We Will Win.

Good luck hope it turns out well. And I do think you can jump in Skylander games now.

Yeah, I've noticed that games are a lot cheaper in Poland. On G2A, a Polish version of Dark Souls 2 was selling for $22. I bought mine for fifty dollars tongue.

Ikr. They just tossed him in because they couldn't hire a dev skilled enough to make a decent game starring him. Serously.

Re: Official "This game sucks!" thread

to this day i still can't get over how ugly Spyro's design is whenever i think about this series. who honestly looked at this on the design board, and thought, "my word, this is genius! Spyro is a well-known franchise about a [mentally] anthropomorphic dragon, and i can hardly think of a better way to carry the torch [of the rights to the franchise] than this!" ?

mentally anthropomorphic makes literally no sense. I think intelligent is the word you want.

Re: Official "This game sucks!" thread

I'm gonna play devil's advocate here and say: Are these games even worth complaining about anymore? They've proven to be a commercial success, What with having 4 games under their belt and a 5th on the way. Coming from someone who's played them they're actually pretty fun. The writing is ok, I mean it IS for kids after all, and as for the acting? Dear lord, when your sidekick is Kronk and your main villain is Zim. You know you're in for some glorious over-acting. Sorry if this wasn't the place for this. Just something I wanted to word.

No and no one's really saying much. Anymore we except and enjoy it. I do I'm a huge fan of the series. But yeah no one's saying anything really anymore.
