Skylanders Giants Video Game Review

Thousands of years ago, the Giants fought epic battles in Skylands but were banished to Earth. With a new 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!

Battle is what we did! We recently had the chance to play Skylanders Giants, and if you have young kids in your home, then you already know this is one of the hottest games available this holiday season. Skylanders Giants once again merges the physical world of toys with the virtual world of games through the portal of power. It’s am eye catching and clever game, filled with stunning graphics and a lot of action. The game is rated for ages 10+ by the ESRB, but I got to tell you – it was a lot of fun even for me. I’m not a big gamer, but this is one I wouldn’t mind playing again with granddaughter. Looking at how affordable the game is, something tells me that I’ll have that chance on Christmas morning.
The Skylanders Giants starter pack includes the Portal of Power and three Skylanders toys. A big bonus is that the toys can be interact and be played on all consoles. Making it easy for friends to take their Skylanders and play the game at each others house, no matter if they have a Wii or an Xbox.

  • Nintendo Wii
  • Ps3
  • X-Box 360
