It was not until a few weeks ago that my kids got in to the Skylanders fascination. Last year we got the Skylanders Giants and it sat on the shelf with the rest of the games until a few weeks ago when my son al of a sudden said “Mom can I play this, my friends told me it is awesome” and he played it and fell in love. Then a few weeks later I got the e-mail about Skylanders Swap force, after the previous conversations with Logan I knew that if anyone could give me a good review of this game, how it plays and what they liked about it he could.
When the box arrived and I showed him the game it was instant jumping around, and asking what he could do to be able to play it. The initial enjoyment of the Skylanders Giants game had not worn off yet, which for me is important with any games the kids play. I want them to continue to enjoy playing them long after they have started and not want to find a new game to play.
The Skylanders Swap Force added to the enjoyment he already had with the Giants game. With new characters that he can add to the game, or use the different bottoms and tops that he can change out to make new characters the game enjoyment is almost never ending. There are 16 different Swap Force Characters that you can get that in the end will have you with 250 total new characters! You can also bring your characters with you to your friends house and play with them and have your characters still have everything they have done and earned and they can swap between game systems too.
Skylanders Swap Force is available on the Wii, Wii U, 3DS, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 so no matter what system you have you can enjoy this game.
Ok so I could continue to ramble on about what I like about the game but it is best that you hear what Logan (age 6) had to say ( I do have to add that this game is not just for boys, my daughter (age 8) loves playing it as well but Logan asked if he could do the review to share with you all what he thinks about it) :
The game is a chapter game, every chapter has a different thing that you need to do. At times there are videos when you finish a level and the videos at the end are cool. I like that you can swap the bottoms and the tops of the characters and make new ones. I like that you can put the regular skylanders giants on the portal to and play with them. The one thing I don’t like is when your character dies you have to start the level over or wait to be able to play with them again. My favorite part of the game is when you get new bad guys to fight like firechomping. Some of the bad guys are easy to beat and some are hard to beat.
The Skylanders Swap Force Starter Pack comes with the Game, the Skylanders, a portal and game cards!
