Skylanders Swap Force Reviews

The Skylander Swap Force video game gives children a chance to set off on magical action adventures and battle dark forces in their imagination.

The kingdom of Skylands owes its magical powers to a volcano that is fiercely defended by the Swap force. But the volcano erupts, blasting the Swap force characters into pieces and rocketing them to earth, where they find they have ability to swap their powers.

Skylanders swap force screenshotsThe game’s aim is to swap the different characters’ powers around to help them reach the Portal of Power and save Skylands. The action figures divide into two pieces so you can swap their top and bottom halves around, so that you can play a similar imaginative game away from the console. This starter pack contains 3 figures, or you can buy them separately.

Skylanders have been described as the Pokemon of the current generation of children, who can become quite fanatical about these fantasy characters. Kids love the combination of battles, adventures, fantasy and magical powers. It gives them a chance to play out their hopes and fears in the safe environment of a game, letting their imaginations run wild.

Points to Note

We’re reviewing the starter pack that contains all the items listed under the “Features” heading above. It’s also possible to buy just the game or just the figures (sold individually or in “battle packs”). See all Skylander Swap Force products here

We think it’s a good idea to get the starter pack including some action figures along with the video game if your kids don’t already have some. It will allow them to continue the game in their minds without being on the console all day, and could save you money later.
