Perspective by 7 – year old Ryan
Here at Stoffel Presents, we are extremely proud of our reviews but we like to change it up from time to time. In this case, instead of us reviewing Crayola Scoot on the Xbox One, we decided to pass to give the game to Ryan to see what a child (who fits the games marketing demographic) thinks of the game.
Ryan is a seven-year-old boy who has no connection to Stoffel Presents whatsoever. This is the first time he has ever done anything like this and we greatly appreciate it. Also a massive thank you to his mum for helping him write up his thoughts. Check out Ryans thoughts below:
The opening – really like the opening, it’s very colourful and the music is fun, although it does get a bit annoying after a while. It could maybe do with a change at each level/area. The sound effects when moving around are a good feature.
The graphics in Crayola Scoot are very good. Love all the detail that’s gone into each area. Ryan loves the fact he can create his own player and the way it looks, and that you can choose your own colour paint to ride with.
It is quite easy to learn the moves but it’s a little bit tricky to do the charge jumps but once has the hang of it’s OK. It’s a little tricky also to master the boost, trick or grind combo as it took a while to get past this part on the training area.
I think it’s really good they can go back to the practice area whenever they want in case they are struggling with a trick and want to try to get it right again.
Shop – would be nice to have more options for basics in the workshop when you haven’t reached the next level. Ryan likes the fact you can customise the Scooter in sections rather than just a full Scooter option, and change the outfits. They’re not expensive which means when earning coins in Crayola Scoot you don’t have to wait for ages before changing parts.
Rooftop, colour frenzy- pretty good level. On his first go he came first and his second go he came 6th.
Splat tag – 2nd. He thought it was awesome, he really enjoyed splat tag.
Challenge Dillon- was really easy to beat the combo sets just by grinding a lot.
Enchanted forest- splat tag chase- quite tricky not to fall in the paint.
Graphics pretty good, better than some other games. quite easy to get about and do tricks.
The Tegan tips are very useful to have.
Unless I’m doing something wrong I feel the 2 play vs mode could be better, my son wanted to play with his sister but we couldn’t get his character and her character to play at the same time. The only way they could play it was to use one of the pre-made characters. This caused a few arguments on who would get to play their character. Although I do like that they can play it together it’s just a shame they cannot play VS with their own characters. They really enjoyed playing all the different arcade games together and trying to beat each other.
I also think it would be good if they could split screen on the practice area. I definitely feel this is more of a one person game than a multi-player.
Although Ryan hasn’t got through all levels yet, there’s definitely plenty to keep him interested. The character names are cool.
Crayola Scoot has standard easy, medium and hard levels.
