Skylanders SuperChargers Reviews
Skylanders Superchargers revs up its cyber-engine to offer fans a huge variety of vehicular and action platforming gameplay. After several iterations, this series now offers a surprising amount of depth, but it still lacks a serious challenge. Nevertheless, older gamers won't bemoan having to play this game with their children. In fact, they'll look forward to it.
Try to get over the kids-only stigma Skylanders games might have, and let yourself enjoy playing in this world. Skylanders: Superchargers offers more than meets the eye, and you might find yourself pleasantly surprised.
An injection of speed and creativity results in the best Skylanders game to date.
At the end of the day Skylanders SuperChargers is yet another great entry into the Skylanders Franchise.
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.
While others may be trying to come for the throne, this old dog certainly picked up some new tricks to keep itself in the fight and show everyone how it's done..
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 gets a lot of mileage out of its new vehicles.
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.
Even though some might be groaning at the cost of having to buy all new toys with it (relax, older ones work just fine as well), Skylanders SuperChargers still qualifies as one of the better games in the series to date. It's fun to play whether in a vehicle or running around, and it looks and sounds very nice for the most part. If your wallet is prepared, you'll have no problem reaching top speed with this one.
Skylanders: SuperChargers reinvigorates my interest in the series, and I'd go so far as to say that I wouldn't mind a full-on SuperChargers racing spin-off in the same vein as a proper Mario Kart game (note that the Wii and 3DS editions are racing games, essentially).
Skylanders SuperChargers continues to deliver the fun and accessible experience that the franchise has become known for. The introduction of vehicles adds further variety to an already expansive game world.
Skylanders: SuperChargers is easily the series' most polished and content-packed iteration thus far, making it a must-buy for all fans of the toys-to-life genre.
Skylanders Superchargers is a competent sequel, but it lacks some of the charm of its predecessors by focusing too much on its collection of vehicles.
It's a game for kids, sure, but adults can easily find a lot to love about this game, and the franchise as a whole. It's nice that this time around players aren't expected to buy every single vehicle to unlock everything in the story mode, but seriously, how can you resist Shark Tank?!
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.
Skylanders: SuperChargers ups the ante with interactive vehicles, multiplayer action, and endless fun.
The series is getting long in the tooth, but I still think it has plenty left to offer, and if they continue with the vehicles in future games, I hope they iron out the problems presented in this version.
There's a lot of fun to be had in this year's Skylanders, with the new vehicle content being more than just another gimmick. The inventive platforming and a fantastic Mario Kart-style sub-game also help keep things feeling fresh. On the downside, it's also the most expensive Skylanders yet, requiring an investment of nearly £80 to get the most out of the game. On balance, the generous package and the cool toys make it all worthwhile, but prepare to empty your wallet during the year ahead.
