Living in a house full of men I’ve bought and played more than my share of video games. I guess because of my boys’ I am a video game junkie.
My boys’ currently own a Nintendo Wii, an X-box 360, 2 Nintendo DS and a Game cube that gets play time every few years or so.That’s why we were all pretty excited when we reviewed Skylanders Giants video game at our local Best Buy
I realize not all of you are video game zombies like we are at my house so I’ll give you a little cheat sheet. Skylanders in a nutshell brings Toys to life in a video game! You don’t have to be kid to know that’s cool, right?
What are the Skylanders Giants, you ask?
Thousands of years ago, the Giants fought epic battles in Skylands but were banished to Earth. With a new and impending threat looming, it’s time to bring them back to join forces with the Skylanders to defeat KAOS. Only YOU can put them on the Portal of Power to unleash their strength in the ultimate battle to save Skylands.
With just a Preview of the game my youngest son who is 12 and I were pretty stoked about the graphics and the over-all never before seen Powers of the the 16 new Skylanders. While trying the game out we found out this is a sequel so to speak of Skylanders Spyros Adventure, (I guess that one slipped past us.) Another cool feature is the LightCore Skylanders that Glow in the dark when near the Portal of Power! Suhweet! This fascinating game can be Played at Home, On the Go or Online. It’s rated ages 10+ by the ESRB. I’m wayyy over 10 and enjoyed it very much.
Overall, we give Skyalnders a 10 out of 10. I’m sure it’s going to be a very hot commodity and on many a kids Christmas List. My son added both Skylanders Spyros Adventure and Skylanderss Giants to his Never Ending Christmas List, this way we won’t miss a thing he so kindly informed me. The Skylanders Giants and Skylanders Spyros Adventure is available with figures that can be bought separately or with a starter pack.
We probably would’ve stayed and played for hours, but we know the people at Best Buy have families and have to get home, LOL.
