What Is Skylanders Giants?

Regarded by many as the new Pokémon, Skylanders Giants combines both physical and digital elements to create an engaging, addictive and hugely fun video game experience. Users buy figurines of their favourite Skylanders characters and attach them to a USB ‘portal’ which is linked to their games console. The character is then displayed digitally on screen and can be used to play the game and fight battles. This is where the collectible element comes into Skylanders; the more figurines you have, the more variation and greater choice of characters you’ll have when playing the game. Trading cards are also available, which is another factor responsible for Skylanders being compared to Pokémon.

Who is Skylanders Giants aimed at?
Like other collectible game franchises, Skylanders is aimed primarily at younger children due to its colourful, monster like characters and fantasy style plot. However, Skylanders Giants, which is the latest games in the series, has a slightly more sophisticated system of game play, which has seen it gain popularity with older gamers.
