Synopsis

Embark on an exciting new adventure with the Skylanders and the Swap Force. For generations, the Swap Force protected the volcano that replenishes Skylands' magic.

  • The Swap Force Skylanders characters have the ability to mix and match their abilities and powers.
  • Separate the figures and snap them together in new combinations. Collect all of the characters to experience a whopping 256 unique combinations in total!
  • Battle Kaos once again in an epic battle to save Skylands.

Box Contains:

  • Skylanders Swap Force game

5.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable adventure awaits 11 Feb. 2014
By Darren
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii U|Verified Purchase
After completing Skylanders Giants, it was with some child like pleasure that I picked up the latest Skylanders game. All your characters from the previous versions are compatible with the only difference being that if you brought series 3 types they have a higher level than the original figures.

Anyway Swap Force introduces the new Swap Type Skylanders which allow you to swap out the legs and torso with the top half to make a different type of Skylander. Some areas now only open if you can make the correct Swap Force Combination or you place 2 separate skylanders of the matching sets on the portal of power.

The other major addition is the JUMP ability which has been absent for the previous games. Supposedly because children found it to hard to manage Jumping when combined with the other attack buttons anyway the game plays in a similar fashion different bad guys, beat boss characters, steer some boats and anything else it throws at you.

What you may notice is that this finally feels like the game is taking advantage of the hardware with more animation, better texture work and better rendering. There are occasional moments when loading seems to take slightly longer than you would of hoped but not enough to take away from the overall pleasure of the game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for adults and children alike 20 Jan. 2014
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii U
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As a grown adult I would give this four stars, but as a father of a child it has to be five!

Our boy absolutely loves the Skylanders universe - not just the games but the books as well, and he loves "old school" playing with the figures. We really wanted to get the new Skylanders game (we have Giants on the old Wii), and getting the superior Wii U version was one of the main factors in buying the new console.

A big step up from the Wii game graphically, of course (although my son wasn't bothered by the slowdown when things got hectic on the Wii), I wanted a machine with more grunt (Gill Grunt!) to render those wonderful environments and fauna to perfection. Definitely worth the outlay!

It may be a lot of money especially if factoring in the characters that you'll inevitably want to buy, but money well spent given the way that the characters come alive within the videogame (which conversely makes the physical characters feel alot more real). Very well made as well.

Most of all, its FUN! Ridiculous battles and lots of collecting, good acting with funny characterisation.

Two player cooperative mode is great fun too - especially for a parent wanting to spend quality computing time with their child.

The grandchildren were over the moon with this present and we had a job to get them off it, they even resisted our
offer of chocolate if they had a break !. Unfortunately granny and myself couldn't work out what was going on, so
we had the chocolate instead !!

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, Skylanders can jump! Fun for the Wii u. 29 Jan. 2015
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii U|Verified Purchase
We previously had the first skylanders game on the Wii but recently upgraded our console to a Wii u. So jumping to Swap force on a higher spec machine was fantastic. Visually it's gorgeous. Lovely colours. The gameplay is much improved too, jumping makes a big difference. Fun levels with lots to do. Only downside is that my kids finished the game in just a few weeks. There is still plenty of little games to go back and do but the I was surprised how quick they finished the main game. Saying that I got this for a bargain price of £14 so can't really complain. A handy money saving tip is when you come to the new swap force gates, when playing two player, you can go through them with regular skylanders of the matching element target than it having be swappable swap force figure. This only works with two players but saves you buying loads of new, expensive figures!

4.0 out of 5 stars purchased for £15.00 25 Jan. 2015
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii U|Verified Purchase
very good price but i believe theres a reason why the starter sets are reasonably cheap. you can complete the main story with what you get but if you want to unlock certain areas you will require several more of these "physical DLC" toys to complete it fully. activision certainly know what they are doing with this cash cow. dont get me wrong its a fun platformer to play with the kids but it can also be an expensive one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great loved buy 31 Dec. 2014
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii U|Verified Purchase
This was brought for my 6 year old grandson for his new wii u he loved it. It was the prefered game on the new family wii u box. (whic was loved by all young and old) the portal was very easy to use and looked well worth the money . much easier tan the angry bird portals to use. The figures would look great on any boys shelf when not i use. Delivery was fast and simple.
All in all great service and buy.
