5.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable adventure awaits
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars ok, keeps the kids happy
The kids love this game. Bought as a birthday present after the disappointment of not getting it for Christmas. Have to admit that they dip into it and out of it, likely to play more if they have a new character. My youngest will quite happily play with the characters without using the game. They are likely to be distracted as they have some many other games to play...

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
= 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 !!

They are likely to be distracted as they have some many other games to play. I'm happy with it as they like it and they also have characters from the previous 2 games that they can use with this.

Fantastic game with excellent display my 5 year old boy loves it and very east to control with gamepad, will probably cost a fortune on keeping up with all the figures, absolute bargain at 25 quid while some shops are still charging over 50 quid
