12/3/15: Skylanders SuperChargers Starter Pack Review

Evan loves to play video games and has been playing Skylanders since the Skylanders Swap Force Starter Set came out.  When we received Skylanders SuperChargers he couldn't wait to play it.  He loves racing around in games and was excited with this addition to game play.
Evan and my husband played it and enjoyed driving around.  They could switch off where one would drive and the other would shoot.  It was easy for them to swap back and forth.  It took Evan a little bit to get used to driving but once he did he was racing along.
There are many different vehicles including helicopters, motorcycles, jet planes and submarines that can race through Skylands and compete against other players for the first time. 
The game also gives you hints too so you know what to do.
I love that there is story telling as you go through the game and puzzles to solve.  It offers hours and hours of game play and keeps kids interested.
There are mini games to figure out.
A positive is that any characters can be used from previous versions but the game features a brand-new class of heroes that is distinct with fresh moves, powerful attacks and all-new weapons. They have special in-game abilities that help Portal Masters fight Kaos.  There are twenty new SuperChargers character toys and 20 new vehicle toys. 
Skylanders SuperChargers has also been named to on the company’s Toys“R”Us 2015 Holiday Hot Toy List.  The Skylanders SuperChargers Starter Pack includes two new Skylanders characters, a first-of-its-kind Skylanders vehicle, a newly designed Portal of Power® and the full AAA game.
It is available for the PlayStation® 3 and PlayStation® 4 computer entertainment systems, Xbox 360™ and Xbox One™ video game and entertainment systems from Microsoft, and Nintendo’s Wii U™ system for $74.99 MSRP.  The Nintendo platforms also include two of Nintendo’s iconic characters reimagined as Skylanders.  Turbo Charge Donkey Kong and Hammer Slam Bowser are available exclusively in Skylanders SuperChargers Starter Packs for the Wii U system, and in Skylanders® SuperChargers Racing Starter Packs for the Wii system and the Nintendo 3DS family of systems.  Plus it has also launched on Apple devices including iPad, and for the first time on iPhone, iPod touch and Apple TV.
