    I was very disappointed with this new version of Skylanders. I enjoyed Skylanders Giants, but in this version, I was very confused and disappointed. The story is the same as Giants, but they changed Giants to swap-force and called it a new adventure. The new figures are boring and they were released in waves, so you had to wait for the ones you liked. Skip it, unless you are under 8.

    Just prepare for a sense of incompletion unless you spend around 70 pounds more than the base price. [Jan 2014, p.74]

    Skylanders will be an influential series in years to come and successfully combines real world collectables with a fantastic platformer to deliver a rich and engaging experience.

    Skylanders SWAP Force may seem like a cash grab in some ways, but the game their figures belong to is just so charming and, well, fun, that this doesn’t really seem like an issue. The gameplay’s addictive, the figures are well-built– screw the haters. I’m a Skylanders fan.
