I admit I have a lot of Skylanders figures and I refuse to apologize for it! Toys for Bob and Activision made a fun game with some awesome undownloadable content. They took the treasure hunt aspect in a lot of games and made it something you can hold in your hand. The game itself isn’t going to challenge Mass Effect or Elder Scrolls in scope or complexity but it’s a solid game that is tons of fun to play with someone else. I’ve gotten almost all the figures available in stores now but this fall I’m going to have a whole new batch to hunt for.
This fall Skylanders Giants is being released. The new game will introduce the (duh) Giants. It looks like the Giants live up to their name in the game. Tearing apart towers, smashing through the ground and pulling whole floating islands together seem like nothing to them. The Giants don’t disappoint in the real world either. They are twice as big as the regular figures. They also light up when near the portal of power. All the current characters, with their stats, will be playable in Giants and the new figures will work with the original portal of power. Check out the trailer to see a little of Giants in action.
