My daughter will tell you that Spyro is life. She loves unwinding with these games and she loves that she can play Skylanders on the go.
What I like about the DS versions of the game is that you don't have to lug all those annoying action figures around. After you load them on the portal pad the first time, the game saves them to your current save file so you don't need it or the portal and can play even if you don't have them. Plus, the portal works with all the standard action figures.
This game was interesting to play. I love the lightness of the Lego games. No matter how serious the game is supposed to be, some lego person's head pops off or something equally amusing happens to lighten the mood.
What I liked in particular to this game, was how interactive the player has to be. It's not just button pressing. In fact, you really only use your directional pad in this game, everything else is pretty much the stylus. Whether you have to draw a spell to cast it, or trace the cogs to open something, or play some simply game of memory, you have to be paying attention and have your stylus in hand. This fact made the game fun and way more interesting than most other games I've played. I also liked how to collect all the things needed to "master" a level you had to play as characters other than Harry, Hermoine, and Ron. There are instances where the player will need to be a villain to accomplish something.
I wouldn't suggest this game to anyone without the patience to remember the spells, the higher in level you go, the faster you have to draw the casting designs, which can be tedious if you're in a fight.
All in all, this is a fun game, and even with going back to previous years and levels over and over to make sure I'd gotten True Wizard, all the golden hats, and all the cards in each stage, it took me less than a month to beat it with only playing an hour or two a day.
This is such a cute game. My daughter loves it. This isn't your typical platform RPG game. You have to go through each level four times, one time for each character. It's the only way you can collect everything and truly clear the level.
While annoyingly repetitive to adults, my 9-year-old will spend hours playing.
I loathe this game. I love the franchise, but I hate this game. Everything is done with the stylus, which is frustrating as hell. I gave up after the first few levels because no, I hate having to rely solely on the stylus it takes the fun out of it.
This game plays pretty much like its big console counter parts. If you're a fan of the franchise, you'll love it.
My 8-year-old will tell you this is the greatest game EVER. She plays it almost nonstop. So it's a win in my book.
If you have a child that like dress-up and fashion, this is the game you need for them lol
This one is way more difficult in game play than the first one. It also lost my attention very quickly.
The spells are far more difficult to cast and even if you do them right, sometimes your DS will say you didn't.
All in all, I didn't even finish this game. I got bored of it and just put it away.
This seemed like a cute little fighting game for my daughter. While she does play it, she is more interested in the Zhu Zhu Pet that comes with it lol
As a 90's kid, I love Super Mario 64. The DS version is almost exactly like the original Nintendo 64 version. There are slight differences to the game play like new things to get things done and new characters you can play as (you're not restricted to just Mario), which make the game play a bit more difficult than it used to be., but the graphics are classic and it's definitely a game that will not only bring back tons of happy memories, but will keep in Mario's world for hours.
This game is a bit frustrating, which in turn, makes it boring.
All it is is puzzles where you "battle" other Neopets with strategy games. There doesn't seem to be much point to it and there definitely isn't an adventure that I've seen.
