Playthrough: Skylanders Giants – Wii U
Developer: Toys for Bob (Wii, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360), Vicarious Visions (Wii U)
System(s): Wii, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U
Release Date: October 21, 2012 (Wii, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360), November 18, 2012 (Wii U)
Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure was such an enormous success for Activision. Not surprisingly, the publisher gave the green light for Toys for Bob to develop the sequel, Skylanders Giants. The second game in the series adds in the titular Giant Skylanders, which feature powerful attacks and tower above most other enemies. All Skylanders from the first game are forward-compatible with Giants, and there are new Skylanders types, such as Series 2 (returning characters from the first game with new, reposed figures and powers) and LightCore (glowing figures with special in-game appearances and powers). As reviewed by Paul on the site, Skylanders Giants is fantastic.
A version of Skylanders Giants for the Wii U was released about a month after the other versions. The Wii U version features HD graphics (like the PS3 and 360 versions), as well as exclusive GamePad play, a very neat feature. This playthrough is a co-operative one featuring BrittanyDill, and is done in the game’s Nightmare Mode (essentially, the very hard mode). Enemies hit ridiculously harder in this mode, even on Skylanders that have leveled up to the maximum levels.
The playthrough consists of all 16 main chapters, the 4 Adventure Pack chapters, and other content including the Heroic Challenges and Arena Battles.
