Skylanders Giants has finally hit the retail stores and I for one am exceptionally excited to see the multitude of changes that have been implemented to improve upon an already superbly creative and fun experience in the first installment. The fact that the game now has a difficulty setting was pure music to my ears as I could now play through and experience somewhat more of a challenge as well as getting the pure joy of having well crafted and conceptually brilliant tangible characters with which to play. The most noticeable change is obviously the addition of the 8 new giants representing the various elemental forces as well as 8 new smaller Skylanders joining the already 32 strong army.
The original clan is also back and can all be used within the new adventure, alongside the lightcore characters which have varying glowing properties when in close proximity to the portal. The rare characters have also made a comeback with Glow in the Dark figures already gracing ebays pages and being snapped up by fans and collectors.
