1.0 out of 5 stars Can't get it to work without a controller, 30 Dec. 2011
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure Starter Pack (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
I don't have an XBox style controller and it doesn't seem to accept the keyboard as a controller for player 1. So my son can't play it unless I buy a controller. The options are extremely limited and I can't see any way to change this - and I'm pretty techie. Helpline is permanently engaged, but then it is just after Christmas

2 weeks later and I still don't know how to switch player 1 to be keybaord controlled. I rang customer support and got someone who struggled to take my email address, and certainly couldn't help me. They opened a ticket and I hadn't seen the ticket for a few days so it got closed. I re-opend the ticket ... and a week later they still haven't responded to me. My son loves the game and whn it works it's great and I can see why, but the software crashes ALOT and really basic games controls like switching controlers for player 1 and saving game progress seem messed up. Fortunately he's too yuong to see the problems and doens't mind continually starting again, but I'm pretty fed up. Plus all of the characters have sold out and people are massively price gouging on Ebay ... even Amozon sellers have doubled and trippled the cost of the chatacters. My son wants an undead charachter to get into a special area early on in the game ... he's got no hope of getting one for 6 weeks unless I pay silly money for one, and on the back of their customer support there's no chance of that
