The resulting creation is the best Skylanders game to date, and a strong competitor to all those upstarts. Even the new Skylander characters, who initially seem a bit over-designed, grow on you after a few hours of play. If you're going to invest a ridiculous amount of cash into games that link up with collectible figurines, you could do a lot worse than Superchargers.
This is yet another awesome game in this series and I am pleased to report that I can highly recommend it.
Skylanders may be facing tougher competition this year, but with Superchargers it's stepped up its game to match.
While fans of the series need no other reasons to buy this, platforming fans who don't mind a few toys on the side will find that this is worth checking out.
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.
This isn't just another update to the Skylanders series, it's the moment the game properly comes of age both from the perspective of top notch gameplay as well as offering families exactly what they want in terms of value. Also, those amiibo-Skylanders are fantastic.
Fans will view Superchargers as the next evolution in Skylanders and I hope to see the vehicles being used in incoming Skylanders titles because it really does add a whole new layer of first-rate entertainment to the mix. Let's rock and ride!
Skylanders: SuperChargers is a great family game with replay value, as long as you're willing to keep buying figurines.
The addition of vehicular gameplay as well as the ability to play online with your friends makes Superchargers a solid addition to the franchise. The high cost required to fully enjoy the whole game as well as the inability to separately purchase the Nintendo toys, however, is a bummer. Overall, though, fans of previous games in the series will enjoy this one.
The writing, humor, and story structure are such that they not only get the job done, but are actually fun to experience, making Superchargers a great option for almost any age. While older gamers might find it aimed at a younger crowd, it's still a great game and opportunity to bring together families and siblings.
