Excerpt: Regular Games Asylum readers will know that we have a soft spot for Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure. It was one of the first games from Activision in a long time that didn’t feel as if Bobby Kotick had booted the developers’ door down and forced them to create it at gunpoint. Lovingly made with a cast of memorable characters, it oozed charm and creativity.
Excerpt: The Skylands are once again in danger, but this time it will take a giant solution to fend off Kaos. While Skylanders have protected the Skylands for thousands of years, there was once an even more powerful guardian force at work. These warriors were known as Skylander Giants, massive combatants with remarkable strength and abilities. The Giants have been banished to Earth for a long time, but this new threat is potent enough that their return is much needed.
Excerpt: Skylanders is ‘the new thing.’ It’s a cultural phenomenon and, dare I say it, the new Pokémon – it’s definitely a ‘giant’ franchise. Activision recently released Skylanders: Giants, the sequel to the successful Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure, and it’s bigger and better in almost every way than its predecessor.
Excerpt: The greatest trick Activision ever pulled was convincing the world that on-disc downloadable content wasn't such a bad idea after all. It turns out the act of locking away characters and levels is perfectly acceptable as long as you bung in a free toy. That's the cynic's perspective, but the beauty of last year's Skylanders is that it was good enough to make such observations entirely moot.
Excerpt: There's something truly crafty about how Skylanders Giants works. On the surface, it’s a fairly straightforward but incredibly well-made action-platformer where you guide a cutesy creature through 16 stages of collecting, upgrading, monster-bashing, and exploring. But beneath that is a big world of physical DLC — instead of downloading maps or characters, you buy additional Skylanders figurines so you can explore everything the game has to offer.
Pros: + Long adventure with lots of cool, collection-based objectives., + New Skylanders = well-made figures + charming game heroes.
Excerpt: When Activision acquired the rights to the original PlayStation series, Spyro the Dragon, they had their work cut out for them. First released by Sony for the original PlayStation in 1998, Spyro the Dragon was a great game with charming characters, settings, and music. The next couple of sequels from original developers were quite good as well, but the game never found its footing on any of the consoles that came next and soon became mired down in bad sequels and...
Conclusion: In an era where backwards compatibility is seen as an expensive or unnecessary feature, Skylander Giants embraces it. For this notion alone it would justify a purchase from anyone who owns the original game. However, Skylander Giants aspires to be more than a kiddie game by implementing new features and ideas that make it appeal to a wider audience.
