GamesRadar (David Roberts)
“Skylanders Superchargers is a competent sequel, but it lacks some of the charm of its predecessors by focusing too much on its collection of vehicles.”
GameSpot (Randolph Ramsay)
“Skylanders SuperChargers is a fast-paced affair, never lingering in one spot for too long, always offering something new and fun to do. It’s a great game to play with kids, and one grown ups shouldn’t be ashamed to try.”
IGN (Alanah Pearce)
“It’s easy to say that this year’s Skylanders keeps things fresh with its focus on vehicles, but that would be selling it short. While the most obvious change is that Skylanders SuperChargers features a brand-new line of car toys and levels full of fast-paced, Mario Kart-esque racing, it also has some of the most visually appealing and mechanically diverse levels the series has to offer, with plenty of hidden areas to explore.”
Kotaku (Mike Fahey)
“But for the most part Superchargers squeezes all the life it can out of the action platforming genre, using clever mechanics to create some amazing moments.”
Polygon (Brian Crecente)
“…all of the care shown in sculpting toys and crafting code, comes together to deliver an experience that is packed with surprises and never gets dull, be the player a child, a parent, or even a cantankerous teen.”
VERDICT: Start your engines, this one’s a go.
