There's a reason that Skylanders] has survived so long. Even without the Toys to Life aspect of the title, the game is addictive fun whether played alone or, even better, in co-operative mode with a friend. The new aspects added in this latest incarnation add a whole new dimension to the play and it is done very well indeed. The vehicle-based parts of the stages are great and all of the race-based aspects are a superb addition to an already established universe. Skylanders SuperChargers is the best in the series yet and proves that LEGO Dimensions and Disney Infinity still have a yardstick to reach.
This year's gimmick is also the game's downfall
Through its solid workmanship, cool settings, and myriad content, Skylanders: SuperChargers demonstrates Activision's lofty fantasy world is still a fun place to visit. Kids will love it, obviously — and if you're an adult fan of 3D action games who's yet to make a brief stop-over, maybe it's time you did so.
The latest chapter in the Skylanders series shows that this name still has a lot to offer. The amount of content and the adding of vehicles, as well as the presence of guest stars Donkey Kong and Bowser make this yet another significant entry in the series.

If you don't mind shelling out yet more money for the new figures, Superchargers is probably the best Skylanders game yet.
Skylanders: Superchargers is an absolute blast to pick up and play, even if you've never had a single moment of experience with the franchise. The story delivers an opulent variety of different styles of gameplay and adds another solid rung to the toys-to-life genre. I never thought I'd admit it, but Superchargers is one hell of an amazing time.
...a solid addition to an already well established franchise.
Activision has once again dropped a solid, functional Skylanders game. If you're looking for a game to get a child this season you really can't go wrong with Skylanders: Superchargers.
Skylanders Superchargers provides what we've come to expect from the series: high production values, fun for all ages, and reminders that you could spend a whole lot more on additional toys to play with.
Skylanders Superchargers could have been a contender, but the enforced arena vehicle sections mean that it only sputters along in the middle of the pack.
