Overall, SuperChargers is a competent sequel and one that's bound to keep the Skylanders fandom transfixed for yet another year. Where previous iterations have kept the series afloat using fun albeit superficial gimmicks, this latest edition feels more like a genuine step in a new direction. It's great news all around, yet the developers at Vicarious Visions and Toys For Bob will definitely be feeling the pressure in trying to top this latest effort next year.
Overall, Skylanders Superchargers is a very impressive package. Totting up how much extra content you get makes it very good value. Add to that the full backward compatibility support for all the previous figures, new online and racing modes and high end production value and it's a very tempting package. Superchargers is the moment we really see Skylanders deliver on its potential. It's not the cheapest game to play with your family but it delivers a huge amount of value.
The addition of vehicles in Skylanders: Superchargers isn't the most creative new gimmick in the franchise's history, but it's well-implemented enough to make this a solid series entry.

Skylanders may have more competition in the toys-to-life space than ever, but the addition of vehicle-based gameplay sections has kicked the series into overdrive with Skylanders Superchargers.
Skylanders Superchargers is another solid entry in a franchise that has done gangbusters for Activision, and fans will enjoy the new vehicle gameplay and adventure-strewn story.
Skylanders Superchargers is the most diverse and enjoyable entry in the series to date, but it also locks away a lot more of its fun content behind additional purchases. You honestly won't enjoy it as much unless you also buy at least one sky vehicle and one sea vehicle to go with your starter set.
[My daughter] told me several times over the last week that this was her favourite toys-to-life game yet. And speaking as both a gamer and a parent I can't find much wrong with her reasoning. Skylanders SuperChargers has great toys and loads of fun stuff to do. Better still, it isn't (necessarily) going to break the bank. It gets my dad stamp of approval.
Skylanders SuperChargers is hands-down one of the best kid-friendly games on the market, and the most complete realization of the "toys to life" genre to date. The variety of platforming and kart-based gameplay holds charm for gamers of all ages, and while you'll need to buy more vehicles to access the game's full spectrum of content, there's more value to be had in both the toys and the game this time around.
The original toys-to-life series is back with a new driving feature and some neat tweaks to the well-known formula
