    Skylanders Battlecast is probably one of the more entertaining turn-based card games that I’ve played. It's quick, addictive and strategic fun.

    A bright and surprisingly deep card game that'll keep you going for a good long while.

    Skylanders Battlecast is an interesting diversion of the main game. The game's mechanics are easy, but they also offer some degree of strategy. The only real problem is the random mana, which can destroy even the strongest deck.

    Look beyond the kid-friendly exterior of the Skylanders image, and you'll find that Battlecast has a very competent and meaty system that fuses pricy but non-essential cards with RPG ideas.

    Skylanders Battlecast can grant many hours of entertainment to kids and their parents. The gameplay is more simple and accessible than the one of other games already known in the genre. Sometimes the randomness of the core of the mechanics influences the matches too much.

    Skylanders brings us another incredible installment in the turn-based battles genre. It offers a great graphic design, but the price needed to get all the cards and its simple gameplay may not be liked by the players of games such as Hearthstone.

    This new installment of the Skylanders franchise relies upon a solid and deep collectible card game. There are some interesting ideas here and there, unfortunately ruined by some over-simplifications in the design, that ultimately make the game a little boring.

    Needless to say, this isn’t cheap spinoff rushed out of the door – Activision has plans for Battlecast in the future and so far it’s managed to create a solid, if imperfect, foundation for them to build on.

    A good start for Activision inside the world of collectible cards. Maybe a little too easy, but the road to improve this card-to-life game is wide and promising.

    Battlecast feels like the card-game equivalent of two kids smashing Skylander figurines together until one of them is declared the winner.
