"It was hard to know what to make of Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure when it was announced last year. A loose reboot of the struggling Spyro the Dragon series combined with a unique character system built around physical toys, the title’s crazy concept seemed to many a gamble. And yet the final product was a fun, accessible and replayable action RPG of sorts; almost a kid-friendly version of such games as the Diablo series. Both the game and the accompanying toy line were major hits for Activision, so naturally, they have quickly followed it up with a full-fledged sequel in the form of Skylanders Giants. And while gameplay hasn’t been changed very much, some new touches of polish and personality do make it an improvement over its predecessor."
