Otaku Dome's: Skylanders Swap Force review:
The Multi-million dollar franchise Skylanders returns this time with switchable action figures, but does this add to gameplay or is it just a gimmick?
Skylanders Swap Force is a 2013 toy-to-game video game that uses action figures in order to expand it’s gameplay and bring more variety to the players. It is available on the Playstation 3, Xbox 360, Wii, Wii U, and Nintendo 3DS, and soon the Playstation 4 and Xbox One.
I’ve long been interested in the Skylanders Franchise. mostly due to the fact that I was a huge Spyro fan growing up, but in recent releases of the game it became clear that the focus was leading away from Spyro himself and focusing on fresh new characters sort of becoming it’s own game. This never made Skylanders bad or unfun to pay by any means, but the lack of Spyro may have upset some fans of the classic Playstation character. All in all though Skylanders Swap Force and Skylanders as a whole is a fun series that has a unique gameplay style, which may see some sparks of competition in the coming years ahead (see Disney Infinity).
