Comment on site articles.

Over 50 new characters to collect in this year's Skylanders game

A few weeks after Disney Infinity was announced, Activision have responded with Skylanders: Swap Force, the third game in the Skylanders series. With a release date set for the autumn, Skylanders: Swap Force won't be going head to head with Disney's game but fans are being asked to collect more than 50 figures in a new Wii U and 3DS game that encourages you to swap parts of the figures.

How many more Skylanders games (aka those games that keep costing you) are they going to release before the parents chuck the little kids consoles out the window?

Well, to be fair to the game, at least this time if you buy 2 figures, you have essentially got 4 thanks to the swapping gimmick. Unless they end up costing a bomb.

I was interested up until I read the word N-Space. Although to be fair, they will be stuck to a strict guideline.
So, in all honesty, I lost interest after the work Skylanders. We've already had too many, and this does nothing to help except reel Activision even more profits, especially since you need to buy the NEW [edit - added lights] Portal of Power NFC reader. Looking on GAME [which to be honest is the only proper game shop open now] the figures are £8-£20, which booster packs costing anywhere from £40-80.
Sure.

:twisted: FUMING :evil:

As a parent of a 6 year old who last year wanted skylanders spyro and had all the characters to go with it, this year he wanted the skylanders giants! He got this for christmas and all the giant figures and all small figures to go with it (44) in all, recently getting the latest thumpback and eye-brawl which we had to get as import from america as they took so long to come to UK, they cost a fortune which i didnt mind untill now. But over £400 worth of skylanders later, hes seen these new swap figures, i thought fair enough, something different....... Then i heard another portal!!!! Are they taking the p*ss????? And also not on the actual wii, has to be on Wii U!!! Very very clever, but im sure you will find it to be a flop and parents in the right mind will NOT be buying this after the others, no matter how good!!!!! ANNOYED!!!! :twisted: :twisted:

An innovative idea gone crazy. a good gimmick with the swap idea, but falls short at price.
