Do you know what the hottest video game was last holiday season? Skylanders. I know we weren’t the only family to get one and for weeks afterwards were trying to get more characters as every store was sold out. It was HOT! I have to admit that even I think it is kind of neat and different.
This year the saga continues and there is another Skylanders game on the market. We headed to Best Buy to see what it was all about.
Skylanders Giants ~ thousands of years ago, the Skylanders Giants fought epic battles in Skylands, but have long since been banished to Earth. Now, Kaos is back and with a new threat rising, it’s time to bring the Giants back to join forces with the Skylanders. It’s up to you to put them on the Portal of Power and unleash their strength. Are you ready for the ultimate battle to save Skylands?
I know my boys are ready to save Skylands! They could have played all day on the great demo that Best Buy had set up. Two players can play at the same time and choose which Skylanders they want to be. Here is the unique part about the game – the characters you play are separate figures you buy. You set your toy figure on the Portal of Power and the game instantly knows who you are. It is very cool and I hope I explained that well. Each different Skylander character has unique powers to accomplish the goal, so of course you need as many figures as you can ~ according to the kids anyway.
