Best PS4 launch game by far.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Skylanders SWAP Force Starter Pack - PlayStation 4 (Video Game)
Originally I had purchased Knack for my 8 year old daughter so she would have a game to play while I wasn't playing Killzone or NB2K. After knack got crushed in the reviews I canceled the preorder and opted for Skylanders. As it turns out, i'm the one playing this game the most!
This is my first foray into the world of Skylanders and I must say - i'm sold. First off, the graphics....WOW. So very beautiful. The gameplay is also very fun and addictive, it's like a simpler version of Diablo. My daughter loved it right away, i'm sure kids at school had told her about it because she was incredibly excited to play it.
I suppose the only bad thing is having to buy the toys to unlock certain areas. I get it, it's an awesome money making business model, i'm just not used to spending hundreds of dollars on a videogame to get the full experience. There is TONS of replay value here and TONS of quests, unlockables, collectables etc...It's going to keep you and your kids busy for a long long time. Adults - to get the most out of the game, I recommend playing on hard.
I recommend this game to everyone who has a ps4 young or old, its just a solid game.
