Skylanders SWAP Force Review | GIZORAMA

GIZORAMA - Shameless money grabs are enough to make anyone sick and this generation of consoles have had their share of it from horse armor to on disc DLC. The Skylanders series is undeniably another money grab but it is one I don’t mind so much. Kids love collecting things so why not give them a series of games that they can collect toys for and use in game. I am sure parents feel a bit different about it though considering the near yearly release that comes with a new series of toys to collect.

The basic concept behind Skylanders is that players buy little figurines that can be placed on a “Portal of Power” and played in game as long as they stay on the portal. These toys fall into elemental categories that are used in game to determine access to various gated off side sections though the majority of the game can be completed with toys that come in the starter pack with the game. The cool factor is that the toys store the in game characters stats, abilities, and inventory. This means that a toy is not tied to a save game so it is easy to hop into someone elses co-op game and still progress a toy. (Skylanders: Swap Force, Xbox 360) 4/5
