I really cannot praise Skylanders: Giants enough. Last year's beginnings were just that, a launch pad for what was to become one of the most sought after collectibles of the 2011 holiday season. With tons of new and exciting things to do, new figures to collect, and the ability to use your previous Skylanders, it feels like someone finally got everything right when creating a sequel. Now excuse me, I need to make sure my wallet is where I left it.

If your kids loved the original Skylanders game, than they will love this new incarnation of the series as Giants adds new characters, abilities and worlds to this franchise. With almost flawless gameplay, a great control system and some really decent looking action figures, there's very little to complain about this game. Recommended!

Skylanders Giants improves the formula set out by the first game in a number of small but meaningful ways. The Giants are fun to play with and mix things up. The increased level cap and loads of new items and upgrades to buy make it fun to jump back in, as do the addition of new toys to collect. Only supporting two players and no online play still feel like misses, as does the inability to jump. The package, as a whole, doesn't push the genre or the Skylanders universe in radical ways, but the additions are welcome and ultimately great fun.

Skylanders Giants marche exactement sur les traces de son prédécesseur, en introduisant simplement la notion de géants, qui sont sympathiques à utiliser, mais ne bouleversent par le gameplay. Ceci dit, le titre est complet, bien calibré pour le public visé, et conserve ce concept très accrocheur de figurines (vendues cher séparément), qui raviront les enfants. On espère simplement que cette licence nous proposera un peu plus de fraîcheur lors de son prochain opus, sous peine de lasser les joueurs...

It’s safe to say that regardless of what I write here, your child is already planning on hogtying you and stealing your wallet anyway. A parent might say no, but kids are smart! They’ll just ask the other parent… or the grand parent… or the aunt and uncle…. The reality is that Skylanders: Giants is age-appropriate fun that harkens back to the delight you had collecting Pokémon cards or mashing your way through a dungeon crawler. If you’ve got little ones, then you already know the verdict here. It’s hard to say no.

Ich habe nicht mehr das Gefühl, allgegenwärtig auf eine Reklametafel in Form von Leveleinschränkungen zu stoßen, die mich dazu animieren soll, mehr Figuren zu kaufen. Es gibt viel zu entdecken, viele klassenunabhängige Herausforderungen zu bewältigen und die Story hat ebenfalls einen Schritt nach vorn gemacht. Sie ist zwar plakativ wie eh und je und ähnlich überraschend wie eine Milchtüte, wird aber sehr sympathisch sowie im Falle der schicken CG-Sequenzen überaus witzig erzählt. Skylanders Giants versteht es besser, das „Mehr-Spaß-Für-Mehr-Geld“-Prinzip in den Hintergrund zu rücken, so dass die gelungenen, wenngleich hinsichtlich des Schwierigkeitsgrades stark auf ein jüngeres Publikum zugeschnittenen Inhalte stärker zur Geltung kommen. Ein leicht schaler Beigeschmack bleibt allerdings weiterhin.

Even though the figurines are fantastic, Skylanders: Giants struggles to realise its full potential. There’s very little depth to the character progression, and the narrative is pretty poor. However, it's tough to shake the appeal of the toys, and while the game is flawed, that's not going to stop the sequel and its catalogue of collectibles from commanding a spot at the top of most kids' Christmas lists.
