Skylanders SWAP Force
We’re not sure when it became official but is there any doubt that Skylanders is a mega-hit of mega-proportions? The frenzy to play with this newest version of the wildly popular game in our testing centers was intense. The popularity is clearly off the charts but more importantly, after spending time with the game, parents say that it is all for good reason. Skylanders is the shining example of what can happen when creative video game designers really think outside the box. If you don’t know by now the genius of Skylanders is the portal that plugs into your XBox, Playstation or Wii. There are an assortment of excellently crafted character pieces that your child puts on the portal and like magic the character appears on the screen ready to go in the game. Each character has unique powers so depending on the situation you are going to want to swap them out. It is truly ingenious. This years release features characters who themselves can be swapped (their tops and bottoms), so that your child can truly customize the play, the powers, and the fun.
