It is a lot better looking than anyAlthough I am a bit late to review this and I got it first thing it was released, I am still going to.
It is a lot better looking than any other Mario Kart game although it is still the same base game there are many new tracks and lots of new features. I am glad there aren't bikes in this game and I like how they used the gyro/motion control of the 3DS and you can use it if you want to.
It is also nice that you can now use gliders in the game if you go on blue boosters, it is quite enjoyable and can sometimes show off a bit of the track. The coin system is allso interesting, you can get coins to speed you up more but it is only a small increase in the speed and coins contribute to some unlocks.
Although I don't think that half the game should be retro courses, I reckon it'd be better is there is only 4-6 of them.
The multiplayer either online or locally worked amazingly and had to be the best multiplayer out of all of the Mario Kart games. Although the friend code system can be a bit tedious and would be better if only one person needed to add you then you get a notification saying if you want to add them or not would be a lot better. Other than that it works quite well.
It is quite sad that they removed the VS mode where you can just race against CPU's as practice for Grand Prix's you can still use VS mode in multiplayer with a friend, but even without the VS mode for singleplayer I still enjoyed it a lot, even though there can be a bit of coin grinding here and there.
One final thing; the Streetpass/Spotpass features are quite good, you can race against people you saw online with their ghosts and people you pass by in Streetpass if they have the game and you can do other things too.
Overall great game and I'd definitely recommend this to anyone who'd like to try out a racing game for the 3DS or is a fan of Mario.… Expand
Average User Score: 2.1May 19, 2012This game should NEVER have existed. It makes CoD look almost perfect it's that bad. I feel sorry for the people who actually paid for thisThis game should NEVER have existed. It makes CoD look almost perfect it's that bad. I feel sorry for the people who actually paid for this game as it is a complete waste of money. The face expressions on the characters and enemies always stay the same, the game gives you no idea of what your doing ect. What's worse is that it is virtually a rip off of Left for dead. The enemies are always the same!!!! As well as the NPC's that are with you do most of the work and there arms are always stretched out. There is probably nothing good about this game. The graphics or the game, they are crap, this is like Half life if it was made years before it should have been. There are loads more cons to this game and thats pretty much it. Should not exist END OF STORY… Expand
Average User Score: 5.0Nov 20, 2011Sklanders Spyros Adventure 3DS isn't anything ground breaking really. I have been a long time Spyro fan and this game really makes you goSklanders Spyros Adventure 3DS isn't anything ground breaking really. I have been a long time Spyro fan and this game really makes you go 'wow the other spyro games are way better' which, I reckon is true. It is pretty good but lacked in content. I completed the entire game in 2 hours 32 minutes. As well as that the final boss fight wasn't hard at all just dodging then attacking for a bit then going through a jump course. Plus the final cut scene is pretty good. However when you beat the final boss it just resets back to where you were before the final boss 'Hectore'. ANd to 100% complete it you have to buy all the expansion packs, buy 1 skylander from each element, get all the hats, get all the radiant crystals. The actual toys you buy though only give approximately 1-4 hours of extra play (by the time you level them up) even though the developers said there would be 10-15hrs added through each toy you purchase. I also was a bit sad to see that there wasn't a "pvp" option like in the other versions. It is for younger kids as the developers say so maybe they will enjoy it more. If your planning to buy something that's content wise DO NOT get this game though. I paid $88.00 for this game and didn't feel my money's worth. (Should've spent it on Skyrim). I know this review is going back and fourth with these points and I apologise. So this is a worse version of Skylanders Spyros Adventure, and I recommend getting a Wii, Xbox360, PS3, or PC version instead because it is a lot more fun addictive and more content.… Expand
