Five Reasons FFG Is Into Skylanders Superchargers

 

 

Cordova, TN; September 28, in the year of our Lord 2015--Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is giving five reasons why we are into Skylanders Superchargers. I was very skeptical of the addition of vehicles to the Skylanders franchise. I thought it was a bit too close to what the overpriced Lego Dimensions is planning on doing with vehicles. I am happy to admit I was wrong. How many other gaming journalists will admit they were wrong about something? Let alone an editor in chief. As ya’ll know I am real, honest, and honorable. If I make a mistake, I own up to it. Skylanders Superchargers is a mix between Mario Kart, and a Skylanders video game. Want to know something? It works. Let us get into the five reasons we are into Skylanders Superchargers.

1. Amiibo connection to Skylanders with Donkey Kong, and Bowser. This is one of the coolest new things to hit the video game industry in some time. These two figures work with the Skylanders franchise, and they are also Amiibos that work with a variety of Nintendo video games. A little turn of the base allows families to move from Skylands to Amiibo. Families get extra use out of the purchase. Note the Donkey Kong figure comes by itself, and in the Wii U Starter Pack. The Bowser figure comes by itself, and in the Nintendo 3DS, and Wii Starter Packs.

2. Vehicles are so cool in Skylanders Superchargers. The three main kind of vehicles in Skylanders Superchargers are air, land, and sea. Families will need one of each type to access all areas of Skylanders Superchargers. The Wii and Nintendo 3DS version Skylanders Superchargers Racing will loan the player one of those types if your family does not own one. No leveling up that vehicle though. Speaking of leveling up, it is awesome to level up vehicles. It is also cool to supercharge a vehicle by using the figure that goes with that vehicle. Which makes the vehicles even more powerful.

3. Improved graphics are very noticeable in Skylanders Superchargers. Some of the levels were definitely influenced by Mario Kart 8 as up and down can get very confusing. The details in the figures and in the on screen graphics have taken a noticeable step up. There are also many more objects on the screen at the same time. Activision has stepped up as more competition has entered the toy to video game genre. It shows and Family Friendly Gaming is appreciative.

4. The game blending in Skylanders Superchargers works amazingly well. It also keeps the game play in Skylanders Superchargers very fresh. I will admit we were getting bored of punching, and kicking all of these characters in previous Skylanders video games. Skylanders Superchargers mixes racing into the main levels, as well as regular racing levels. At the end of the day Skylanders Superchargers feels like multiple games at the same time. Which helps with the cost of this hybrid video game.

5. The humor continues in Skylanders Superchargers. I love all the different characters in this franchise. As the franchise continues to grow and build we meet more and more characters in Skylands. Skylanders Superchargers expands this by adding in Pandergast. He is a great new character into this franchise. Flynn continues to steal the humor in Skylanders Superchargers. He really adds some amazing class and personality to the Skylander video games. The other characters play off him masterfully well.

It is really hard this year to figure out which franchise we like better. Right now it is a two horse race between Disney Infinity 3.0, and Skylanders Superchargers. We are spending all kinds of time playing Skylanders Superchargers. Over and over again we hear: “This is Awesome!” At this moment in time we like Skylanders Superchargers a bit better than Disney Infinity 3.0. Lego Dimensions has not come close to either one.
