Released in the last quarter of 2012, Skylanders: Giants was a direct sequel to the 2011 game Skylanders: Spyroâs Adventures. As the title suggests, the game features larger Skylanders known as âGiantsâ. It also sports a new gaming mechanics. In fact, Activision released the Skylanders: Giants Xbox 360 Starter Pack that includes the video game itself, Portal of Power, Skylanders figures, character collector poster, sticker sheets with secret codes and trading cards. The Power of Portal is integral to the game as it enables players to bring the character figures to life - at least in the game. Skylanders: Giants is built upon the mechanics of its predecessor. However, it works in conjunction with physical toy figures. A player will connect a character figure to the Xbox 360 using the Portal of Power, and then it will create a respective character in the game. From there, gamers can start their journey to save the Skylands. Aside from the new game mechanics, Skylanders: Giants features a new and improved âBattle Modeâ for head-to-head play, which brings in more areas and gameplay, as well as a variety of alter ego Skylanders. You can purchase the Skylanders: Giants Xbox 360 Starter Pack online for as low as Â£16.00. The character figures, on the other hand, are available for less than Â£15.00 per piece. Remember, though, that the starter pack contains small parts, making the game not suitable for children under 3 years old.
