Skylanders: Swap Force Review - Swap your Skylanders powers as you jump all over Kaos


Skylanders Swap Force is the best entry in the franchise yet with superb voice acting and great gameplay that everyone can enjoy.

Skylanders Swap Force


It's that time of year again where parents, kids, and those nutty gamer collector types are staking the local department stores for their Christmas toy fix. Two years ago Activision and Toys for Bob released an industry revolution called Skylanders...

Overall, Skylanders Swap Force is definitely worth getting because you really don’t need to buy all the new regular characters, you can just buy the new Swap Force gang, and use all your old characters from the previous two titles (if you own them)....

Skylanders Swap Force: One giant leap for Stealth Elf


Skylanders, the franchise filled with both dungeon-crawling fun and rampant consumerism, is back for a third installment. The second, Giants, suffered from a series of half-steps, from a largely-recycled engine and hastily-put-together levels to...

Swap Force figures are fun, visual upgrades are nice, jumping is fun

Still suffers from tedium, consumerism hooks feel like too much

Skylanders Swap Force


Sometimes you forget that Activision produce other games besides Call of Duty, and then you remember just how much money Skylanders has raked in during its short time on the market. Ostensibly a game that carried on the Spyro story, the series has...

Skylanders Swap Force is at its core a fun filled kids game with a penchant for clever in-game marketing. It would be nice to be able to experience 100% of the game right out of the box, but where is the money in that? Instead you will probably get a...

Skylanders: Swap Force Review


I might have missed out on the initial Skylanders hype train, but after two years of well-regarded and successful games, I'm finally getting bitten by this addictive franchise. If you haven't heard about how this works, Skylanders is a Disney-styled...

Skylanders: Swap Force is a somewhat-fresh take on the franchise with a really satisfying new element of mixing and matching character halves, but let's not pretend that it's going to take the series' fans by surprise. Even with my meager amount of...

Skylanders SWAP Force (360)


As I eased into the third game of the Skylanders franchise, I had a wave of familiarity come over me, as if I just reconnected with an old friend and we picked back up like they had never left. However, the deeper I got into the game, I started having...

Skylanders Swap Force brings back a very familiar game with a few upgrades and a slug of new characters. Those that are huge fans of the franchise will be comfortable with this familiarity, while those that are just getting into the game for the first...

Skylanders: Swap Force Review


A good time to be had by all.

Speaking of melee combat, there’s a much stronger presences of this in the game. For example, in previous installments, the boss fights are more shooter based; this time around, however, the fights are an adrenaline-fueled charge. While many peers have...

Skylanders Swap Force


The latest Skylanders takes a great gimmick and makes a great game

New swapping mechanic works brilliantly ; Better fighting and platforming than ever ; Fiendishly addictive ; Still works with the old figures

Expect further damage to your wallet ; Areas locked ‘til you buy more

We've had our reservations about previous Skylanders, but with Skylanders: Swap Force those have pretty much disappeared. While you'll still begrudge the high upfront cost and the ongoing expense of new figures, it’s a cracker of a family game. With...

Skylanders SWAP Force


The original toy-based videogame is back for another go-around; is it worth a play? We head to the Skylands..

Skylanders SWAP Force Review


It’s very easy to dismiss the whimsical art style, collecting and platforming as a game for kids, but dig a little deeper and you’ll find a lot to like about Swap Force.

Visually rich and detailed worlds ; New Swap Force characters are well designed; Forwards compatibility with all older Skylanders figures; Drop-in Drop-out co-op; Long levels with great variety; Great new enemy design and Baron Von ShellShock needs his...

Loot sometimes falls in areas that can’t be accessed; Cut scenes can repeat in the hub world; Turret sequences are lazy game design in this day and age; Skylander dialogue no longer mimics 80s wrestling and cartoon characters
