Holiday Gift Guide Selection
I had the wonderful Opportunity to review Skylanders Swap Force Starter Pack by Activision. I have played the Spyro series and have enjoyed them thoroughly. In fact, I was terribly sad when Spyro was no longer being made as I thought it was a good game that children would even enjoy. However, to my surprise Skylanders came out and is a spin-off of Spyro Adventures. The Skylanders series is designed for the younger generation which unlocks a whole unique gameplay that utilizes a portal and action figures to bring the game to life in your own hands. Now while this is not the same exact game as the fire breathing dragon of Spyro that we all may have enjoyed over the years but this will bring more realism gameplay for the younger children.
If you are familiar with Skylanders you know that by using the portal and characters each one brings something different to make the game unique. Skylanders has evolved over the years from Skylanders Adventures, Skylanders Giants to the new Skylanders Swap Force.
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. That is until an epic battle caught them in an eruption that blasted them apart, sent them to Earth and gave them the ability to swap powers. You can mix and match their tops and bottoms, put them on the portal power and watch them come to life in the game. New powers, new abilities and you can create over 250 new Skylanders. All of Skylanders figures from previous Skylanders work with Swap Force which in turn, will bring another new experience.
Skylanders Swap Force is available on Wii, Wii U, 2DS, 3DS, PS3, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PS4. The starter pack includes:
- Video game
- Character Poster
- Portal of Power
- Trading Cards
- 3 Skylander Figures
- Sticker Sheets with Secret Codes
If your children or a special child in your life loves video games or the Skylanders series this would make the perfect gift this holiday season. You can purchase this game in many national retailers such as Walmart, Target, Gamestop, Best Buy, Amazon and more.
