Shawn Posted September 23, 2015 Share Posted September 23, 2015 Hey All, So I got the new Skylanders game for my son. I've played a little of it with him. The game is pretty fun. The new vehicle gimmick is interesting. The plane controls are good, the boat controls are good BUT the car controls are HORRIBLE. With the focus being on the car so much it really does take away from an otherwise great addition to the series. The new figures that can "super charge" the vehicles is pretty cool. Any figure can pilot any vehicle but if you pair the right figure with the right car there are bonuses to your stats. It's for sure a money grab but it is fun when you do own the needed figures. Speaking of buying the figures there has been a price hike on all of them. Seems the smaller figures and the bigger ones have both gone up by $2 to $3 each. Previously the vanilla Skylanders where around $12 now they are $15, the deluxe ones (super,ect, whatever) have gone from $15 to $18ish, $20+ after sales tax. So in closing, the game is fun, the controls on the car really should have been better and the price hike is a little hard to swallow. If they patch the controls on the car it would be a solid 8/10 game. As is it's a solid 7/10. Shawn Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
