When it comes to video games we look for a game that can offer multi-player opportunities for our kids to play together. And we love games that allow for co-operative play. Seeing as we are already huge fans of Skylanders, Skylanders Giants and Skylanders Trap Team, I knew that Skylander’s newest release the Skylanders Superchargers would be a hit.
Skylanders Superchargers brings another saga of fun
After we were sent the starter pack to try out and share our honest opinion, it wasn’t long before we had it hooked up to the Xbox and ready to go. Now the husband and I always pre-screen each game before we turn it over to the kids.
We like to make sure it’s content is appropriate. Well, Ok, so with Skylanders it’s mostly because we wanted to get in some good game play before the kids took over. We know the content is appropriate. They have always been appropriate.
With Skylanders Superchargers the gang is all back for another expansion of game play. Lord Chaos is up to his evil tricks again. And it is up to the Skylanders to save the day.
Only this time, instead of new Skylander characters; the new game toy are vehicles!
There are new vehicles to collect for each element. And yes, you can ride these vehicles in game! In fact you have to use them in order to unlock certain content.
The husband absolutely loves the new vehicle game play. He loves to ride around Skylands and he loves how responsive the vehicles are to the controls.
I like that even with 1 vehicle, the game is still completely co-op friendly. So our kids can play together and not fight over who’s turn it is! But also it makes for a fun Date night game play as the husband and I can play together as well!
When you have more than one player, then one is the driver and the other is the gunner of the vehicle. So you can drive around and shoot up the chompies all you want. Or you can exit the vehicle and fight them the old fashioned way.
There are new skills to learn, new brain teasers to solve to unlock treasures and bonuses and levels. That is another reason why we love Skylanders, it requires the player to solve brain teasers. It’s not just a mindless game, but one that incorporates strategy and problem solving skills so our kids are learning as they play.
Overall, the new Skylanders Superchargers offers hours of entertainment for the entire family. You have a new storyline to play with different skill levels.
