    Surprisingly fun game. First skylanders game I've tried. the beautiful graphics and assortment of environments in the game really show off the PS4's power. With a bunch of other game modes to try, Post game will keep you sucked in. Only have a few gripes, like having to listen to an npc everytime i want to learn new skills. Story is kind of cheesy and generic but I'll cut it some slackSurprisingly fun game.

    TIP : Buy these franchises a year behind their release. Ive just moved my son into the skylanders swapforce from giants and it has worked out amazingly for us but I know its not the case for many people who have this game. We paid 15 bucks for starter pack and 15 for 4 used skylanders that all looked brand new at Game Stop. By doing this he was able to unlock almost all the content in gameTIP : Buy these franchises a year behind their release.

By doing this he was able to unlock almost all the content in game without need for more money spent. In truth it will be about 60 total by the time he has everything he needs but that's how much a new game cost anyway. Except he didn't get just a disc he now has 7 new action figures tons of stickers and a poster. The game is very fun dungeon crawler style game. Also has an arena mode which has been very very fun. Like if these games were not marketed the way they were you would see competitive PvP grow in this game. Go to your local gamestop find someone who knows about the game and how to make it chapest set up possible and you wont be disappointed with this game. The same set up we got for 30 apparently was around 110 total when this came out in 2013 Expand

  1. Looks marginally better than the PS3 version. That's about it. [February 2014, p83]

    The swappable characters add a nice new mechanic and jumping is finally in. The PlayStation 4 version looks solid with better textures and resolution. It's fun for the whole family, but can be an expensive investment if your kid wants to unlock every level in the game.

    A great and humorous story, colourful environments, deep campaign and swappable characters make this a great game you shouldn't miss.
