Skylanders SWAP Force

The Gamers Temple
7 December 2013
  • Excerpt: Skylanders SWAP Force is the third iteration in the game series that turns real-world toy figures into in-game characters, but there's more to this game than a whole new set of figures to buy. The first thing that's new will be obvious the first time that you fire up the game. SWAP Force is built on a new graphics engine, so it's the first Skylanders game on the PS3 that actually looks like a PS3 game and not a Wii port.

Skylanders SWAP Force

High-Def Digest
8 November 2013
  • Summary: In October of 2011, developer Toys for Bob, backed by the publishing powerhouse that is Activision, released 'Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure'. It was an experiment that seamlessly blended a physical toy line with the video game universe of the same name. Individual Skylander toys are placed on the 'Portal of Power' and are magically brought to life to be fully controlled on your television.

Skylanders: Swap Force

Playstation Illustrated
7 November 2013
  • Excerpt: I can say that I was lucky enough to get to see the first Skylanders even before they were released. From that moment, I knew that they were going to be a huge success. The concept of merging actual toys with videogames is pure genius. I was wondering how they would continue to improve, but they have managed to do it, yet again. The characters in the new Skylanders: Swap Force come apart at the waist so that you can mix and match them.

Skylanders Swap Force PS3 Review

About.com

  • Conclusion: Skylanders Swap Force Image © Activision You’ll have to set the limit for yourself or your kids as to how deeply you want to get into the world of “Skylanders Swap Force” before you get started. To play every character and access every level will cost you more than double the standard price for a new game. You can practically get a PS4 for that amount of money. I wouldn’t recommend spending that on ANY game.

  • Excerpt: In a lot of ways, Skylanders Swap Force feels like the sequel the original game deserved. It makes visual upgrades and mechanical tweaks that were really needed, and brings in the fun new figures to try out as well. Unfortunately, it has a bit of a higher bar to clear after the momentum-slowing Giants , so these advancements may not be enough for everyone to overcome the inevitable fatigue of the formula.
  • Pros: Swap Force figures are fun, visual upgrades are nice, jumping is fun
  • Cons: Still suffers from tedium, consumerism hooks feel like too much

Skylanders: Swap Force Review

VideoGamer.com
23 October 2013
  • Excerpt: In the face of strong competition from Disney Infinity, Skylanders really needs to be on its A-game this year. Yet series creator Toys For Bob has taken a back seat, handing the keys to Vicarious Visions. No matter: Swap Force doesn't suffer one bit for the changeover. It’s the best Skylanders game to date, and a clear step forward for the series. Or should that be a leap?

  • Excerpt: You've been hankering to send a team of elite heroes to fight the forces of evil. Luckily, Skylanders Swap Force, the third game in this charming series, has arrived to sate the needs of returning collectors and newcomers alike.

  • Cons: Requires additional (and sometimes expensive) Skylander figures to unlock all game content, Some modes are either too boring or too punishing, Camera angles aren't always ideal
