We love the video game Skylanders Spyro's Adventure. We play it all the time at our house on the Wii. When we heard about the Skylanders Giants, we had to see what they are all about! Best Buy has this whole area set up to play the game using a Giant, Tree Rex, and some of the other characters as well.
Fun at Best Buy
After waiting for a few kids to take their turns playing the game, I swooped in to try it out. Yes, they were all looking at me, like who's this old creeper in line to play a video game? Can it kids, I happen to be really cool. B)
I ended up going to Best Buy while my kids were at school. They are totally irritated with me that I didn't bring them to play, but that will just make it more fun when they open their Christmas presents! 😉
If you're not familiar with the Skylanders, you can check out a post I did on them last year. The Giants are such an awesome upgrade to an already fun game concept. Using the Portal of Power, the Giants come to life in the game!
The Giants have incredible powers and can attack and defeat enemies with ease. All of the characters from Skylanders Spyro's Adventure are 100% compatible with Skylanders Giants, each of their abilities and upgrades intact. Skylanders Spyro's Adventure characters can even increase their level cap from Level 10 to Level 15 in Skylanders Giants!
The Giants also make battle mode even more fun. Too bad Best Buy didn't have another controller set up. I could've showed those other kids what's up!
Tree Rex is really fun to play with. He seemed pretty indestructible as I was running around Skyland. I didn't take too much time playing in Best Buy because I didn't want to hog the game, so I can't wait to play at home. The game offers new Hero Challenges, more Battle Mode gameplay and advanced integration across console, handheld, mobile and Skylanders Universe™.
