Skylanders Giants

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Skylanders was one of the biggest surprises of 2011. Pretty much everyone expected it to be a cheap cash-in of 90s nostalgia to sell toys to unsuspecting kids -- and boy, were we wrong. It was actually a pretty fun, serviceable action game, and the toy craze took off like wildfire. Now here we are in 2012 with the sequel, featuring even bigger Skylanders and even more toys. In light of this, I have bad news for you folks: it's time to break out your wallets again.

Skylanders Giants PS3 Review

  • Conclusion: Skylanders Giants PS3 Image © Activision The person who conceived the "Skylanders" franchise deserves the raise he or she probably received. It was a brilliant concept to blend toys with video games and allow kids to collect characters that they can watch come to life. The fact that parents will have to spend WAY more than the initial purchase price to satisfy kids who love this game may not be too happy about it but one can't deny its genius -- at least financially.

  • Summary: If you have a kid or know anyone who has them, chances are you've heard of 'Skylanders'. The game, which combines toys and video gaming into one wallet-depleting package, was a huge hit that sold over 30 million copies. The game requires that you purchase figures before you can play with that character. The cynic in me feels like this is nothing but a cash grab. Playing through the new title, 'Skylanders Giants', only reinforces that impression.

  • Excerpt: One of the most innovative games of 2011 is back with Skylanders Giants ! The idea of the original Skylanders was ingenious, combine action figures with a video game via a special "Portal of Power" and voila... you had a true interactive gaming experience with the real world. Best of all, the action figures that came with Skylanders looked impressive and additional toys could be purchased with each figure having different powers and abilities that affected the overall...

  • Excerpt: Last year, Skylanders: Spyro's Adventures burst onto the scene and created an addictive beat 'em up series that parents could enjoy with their kids and young gamers could appreciate more than anyone. The game utilized many unique ideas to create an appealing title by offering in-game characters as toys that could be purchased in retailers nationwide, would save data directly to the toy to take data with you wherever you go, and offered the ability to play the game on any...

Skylanders: Giants (PS3) - Review

VGChartz
24 October 2012
  • Excerpt: There is a good chance you have heard of Skylanders . There is a decent chance you have seen the huge Skylanders display in the electronics section of a retail store. Given how successful the first game was, there is an equally good chance you already have a small army of these plastic fantasy figures standing guard around the gaming consoles in your home.
