Skylanders: Giants is a video game in the Skylanders franchise that is a direct sequel to Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure, which was released in 2011. Along with other new gameplay elements, it includes bigger Skylanders known as “Giants,” as the name of the game suggests. Eight “Giants”; Bouncer, Crusher, Eye-Brawl, Hot Head, Ninjini, Swarm, Thumpback, and Tree Rex, along with 16 new Skylanders, were also released. This is the last Skylanders game that Vivendi controlled before Activision became a separate business. According to review aggregator Metacritic, Skylanders: Giants earned “generally good” reviews for the majority of platforms. The Starter Pack includes three Skylanders figures: Tree Rex (Giant – Life), Cynder (Series 2 – Undead), and Jet-Vac (Air), as well as the Skylanders Giants DVD, poster of all the Skylanders from Skylanders Giants, Portal of Power, trading cards, stickers, and codes.
