Alright, Duders... Time to fess up...
Giant Bomb sold me Skylanders:Spyro's Adventure and my love for the game continues with today's sequel release. How many of you are returning Portal Masters and how many are coming to it for the first time? Would love to hear some impressions from both sides, too.
Personally, in brief, I find Giants to be a pretty good sequel so far. It improves on little niggling issues like inconsistent framerate and sluggish menu interface along with new stages, a new story, and some new gameplay features. Largely, however, it is just more Skylanders and for me that's just dandy. I'm a twenty-eight year old six year old, that's for sure, and there's no denying that Skylanders is a damn cool toy.
P.S. The figures continue to be well worth the money both as game pieces and as collectibles. I was a little afraid they would skimp on the paint and mold detail on the new series but they are as good if not better. The Giants in particular have some real strikingly intricate detail.
