The sequel to last year’s sleeper hit Skylanders propagates the Skylanders schtick of bringing physical and digital gaming together by requiring you to purchase an actual Skylanders toy, which you must use to pursue adventures in the world of the Skylanders game. Skylanders: Giants is totally compatible with the original Skylanders, and you can import your old characters using their figures, but the real draw for younger players (and even a few older ones) is the new Giant Skylanders, bigger and badder monsters that are twice as big as the previous generation of Skylanders and that come with all-new abilities and challenges to overcome. Skylanders: Giants seems like an excellent game for the younger players on your holiday gift list, but even seasoned PC gamers may be surprised by how much fun they have with this seemingly simple character adventure game.
