As most of you know, I am a huge gamer. If I could spend all day playing video games – I would be a happy mama! My dad used to call me a “vidiot” because of all the time I would spend playing video games. I am not ashamed to admit this at all – I love being a gamer. One thing I am ashamed to admit, however, is that until this month, I had never played Skylanders. I know – I know. How can I call myself a gamer and not have played this hugely popular game. I don’t know how to answer that question except honestly – I am a mom. I wish I had more time to play games but I just don’t anymore. That is why I was so excited about Skylanders – as far as I could tell this is a total family game – and I was so pleased to find out that it is!
In Skylanders Superchargers – the latest in the series – you pilot an unstoppable fleet of incredible vehicles over land, under sea and through sky to stop Kaos and save Skylands! It includes NEW online multiplayer race and CO-OP modes and it is a blast! All four of the members of my family have taken a turn at the wheel and we all love it. My 4 year old is especially good at it (teach them young right) – so much so that we are planning on buying other figures and vehicles for the holidays as gifts. We will most likely be purchasing the other versions of Skylanders out there as well. The Skylanders Superchargers Starter Pack is available for PS3, PS4, XBOX 360, XBOX ONE, Wii, WiiU, 3DS, and iPad/iPhone and includes:
- 1 Video Game
- NEW Portal of Power®
- 2 Skylanders Figures
- 1 Skylanders Vehicle
- 1 Collection Poster
I love open world type games that have mini games in them as well so Skylanders Superchargers was a huge hit for me. In addition to innovations to the series’ renowned on-foot platforming, combat, puzzles, and mini-games, Skylanders SuperChargers’ new vehicle-based gameplay heralds the arrival of aerial, water, and land exploration. You’ll speed through the world and battle enemies in your high-speed land vehicle, explore the depths of the sea in a submarine, take to the air for intense dogfighting with 360 degrees of control, and so much more. I am a true completionist so I love all of these additions to the game. Because my family enjoys playing games with me, I tend to lean toward games with local co-op play. That is one of the major reasons I was very excited to try out Skylanders Superchargers. As fans have come to expect, Skylanders SuperChargers can be a shared experience through local cooperative play, but now, you’ll be able to work together with a friend even as you speed through the sky, land, or sea. During vehicle gameplay, players can take the roles of pilot and gunner, unlocking new combat and exploration abilities. Best of all, you can switch roles on the fly, letting everyone have a chance to fight off enemies or hop into the driver’s seat. That was the really fun part!
