Excerpt: Skylanders: Swap Force is the next great addition to the Skylanders family and I, for one could not be happier. From what I can tell a great deal of thought and creativity has gone into the new episode following on from its predecessors, Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventures and Skylanders: Giants.
Excerpt: Even after the return of the Skylanders, including the imposing Giants, Kaos refuses to let his defeats stop his evil plans. Now he has discovered a way to turn anything evil, via a crystal powered weapon he calls The Evilizer. He soon uses this weapon to turn any Skylands residents he can find into his own personal army of evil. This means the Skylanders have to battle not only Kaos’ usual forces of darkness, but some of Skylands’ own inhabitants.
Conclusion: — There’s a lot to like about Skylanders Swap Force, from the uniqueness of swapping characters to the mini-game longevity of Swap Force Challenges. Activision continues to set the bar high for this series. The company may have to pull a rabbit out of its hat to stay ahead of the competition in future outings.
Is Skylanders Swap Force a force for good, a force for evil, or something else?

Excerpt: Bear with me for a bit, because this is going to get ugly. I have some serious reservations about Skylanders: Swap Force. Serious enough that I think they belong at the beginning of any conversation about this game, or “game”, or business model for selling figures. In fact, my reservations have at times coalesced into loathing. But, like many important reservations, they aren’t the full story. And they’re far from the last word.
Excerpt: I might have missed out on the initial Skylanders hype train, but after two years of well-regarded and successful games, I'm finally getting bitten by this addictive franchise. If you haven't heard about how this works, Skylanders is a Disney-styled cartoony action adventure game with tons of cool characters to play as; the unique thing about these games is that you put a toy on a USB-connected "portal" to play that character in the game, and a small chip inside each toy...
Excerpt: Skylanders SWAP Force is Activision Blizzard's newest release in their highly popular toys meets video games franchise. While the previous release introduces Giants that were far larger than any other Skylanders creature before them, Skylanders SWAP Force features a brand new cast of characters that are capable of swapping halves of their bodies with other creatures from the same world.
Excerpt: Der er ingen tvivl om at Activision er konge på denne genre. Visuelt er det indbydende, kombinationen af fysiske figurer og spil er stadig genial, samtidig med at SWAP er med til at gøre det endnu mere legende. Du skal tænke lidt strategisk om det Vand underdel og Ild overdel eller omvendt du sender i kamp i SWAP zoner. Hvis dine børn kender Skylander kan du godt stille dig i kø nu. For alle andre er dette et glimrende sted at starte.
Pros: Det er sjovt, alle tidligere figurer virker og det er på dansk.
Cons: Lidt med kamera når jeg nu skal finde et eller andet.
Summary: Ich mag einfach zusehen, wie mein Sohn vor Begeisterung große Augen bekommt, wenn er eine Skylanders-Figur auf das Portal stellt und auf dem Bildschirm zum digitalen Leben erweckt. Das war fast auf den Tag genau vor zwei Jahren mit Spyro's Adventure so. Dann mit den Skylanders Giants und jetzt auch wieder mit der Swap Force.
