5.0 out of 5 stars Portal of power! 6 Mar 2013
By @GeekZilla9000 TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm 32 now, I've seen Pogs, Tamagotchis and Furbys all come and go - I was certain I could see when a mediocre product was being marketed as a craze and the inner cynic in me thought that Skylanders was a ridiculously over-priced concept designed to appeal to kids. Then I was bought Skylanders at Christmas by someone rather amazing. Now I'd defend it to the death!

For those who, like me a few months ago, don't really 'get' how it all works: Skylanders is an action role play game in which you guide a character around a fantasy world called Skylands where you must solve puzzles and defeat baddies in order to progress. A 'portal' plugs into your console, by placing different Skylander figures on the portal you change the character in the game. This is a great strategy game, some Skylanders are faster than others, some have different skills and some are able to unlock otherwise inaccessible areas. You get three Skylanders (2 regular size and 1 giant) which are enough to complete the game with, but to make it more fun and if you want to do all the sub-games then you need more Skylanders, and once you start playing this - you *will* want more Skylanders!

The build quality is excellent, the Skylanders themselves are tough plastic and very detailed. They don't look mass-manufactured and many of the figures are impressive to look at, they won't easily break. The Portal of Power which plugs into the console doesn't require batteries (I believe older versions did) and it has a soothing glow which cycles through various colours. It is very responsive and the moment you remove a Skylander and replace it with another the game reacts instantly.

Before reading any further, if you are trying to decide between the "starter pack" or the "booster pack" take one major thing in consideration!

** The new Portal of Power which comes with the Skylanders Giant's start pack is a USB CONNECTED and DOES NOT require batteries at all and DOES work with the first game too - making it a massive reason to upgrade!!! **

I absolutely loved the first game and only stopped playing for ONE simple reason - the batteries kept running out and they have finally fixed this ONE negative aspect of the game.

So even if you already own a portal of power from the first game, it is actually good value for money to buy the new starter pack again for Giants because 1) You get 3 new characters 2) You get a portal of power which is USB powered and 3) its actually the same price as the booster pack anyway on Amazon at least.

Why they didn't do this in the first place is beyond me?

Anyway the game itself...

The game works and feels almost exactly like the last one except the odd change and mostly improvements.
If you loved the first one like I did, you will love this one even more.

- The story is slightly shorter but its still lengthy story campaign.
- A new max level of 15 with old and new characters.
- More abilities to unlock for old characters.
- The ability to choose the difficulty including easy, normal, hard and NIGHTMARE once you complete the game once.
- Slightly crisper and nicer graphics.
- The in-game movies have been improved a lot visually, but still the lip-syncing is a completely off.
- They have removed the shaking of the stick to open boxes and now its just bashing the 'A' button instead.

This in its own right is a good game and the quality of the portal and the figurines is good. However the whole Skylanders craze is basically like a subscription to an MMO like World of Warcraft. The kids are always wanting more characters (at 10 a go) and certain parts of the game cannot be accessed without certain characters. If you don't mind the investment (and we have spent close to 100 on it so far) then fair enough, but there are far better games out there for less eg Ratchet and Clank. Although part of the fascintation for kids is peer pressure.

Also: there is a Disney version coming out as well as a new "transforming" Skylanders which will no doubt make some of the Giants redundant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Back and Better 28 Dec 2012
By Arjun.P

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this product after being a big fan of the first game. When I owned the first game I finished it and was left bored with loads of figures doing nothing. I sold the first game after a while as well as all the figures I collected. When the second game came out I thought it would be similar and would be a waste of money. I had some money from Christmas so I decided to get it too see what it was like and I made a great decision. This game has improved so much, you can now replay the game on many different difficulties including a nightmare mode which can be unlocked after completing the game on a different difficulty. You can also use your money to buy things like hats. In the new game you can now use treasure for different things. Some treasure can be used to customize your ship, others get you discount on upgrades. The giants are brilliant they are absolutely massive and can do loads of things normal skylanders cant like throw rocks, pull islands and lift large logs. Giant figures also light up like the special lightcore figure which cost about the same amount as giants but are not as powerful in game. The game is good but if set to a difficulty too high for you can get boring when you have to reset the chapter all the time. You are better off getting the starter pack even if you already have the original game. There is about 10 difference between the sets and you get an extra 2 characters and a wired portal of power. The original portal for ps3 is wireless but because of the new light feature the wireless one would use too much battery power meaning you would have to keep changing your battery. The wire for the new portal is very long and can be used from quite a distance. The controls are very simple and can be used by anyone. Read more ›
