The Nintendo Wii is home to a lot of cute games. These games are very much well received by any child who plays the console. But, it is not only children who enjoy playing Nintendo Wii games; adults are also fond of the Nintendo Wii game titles.
Today, we are going to talk about the Skylanders Giants game for the Nintendo Wii. This is a sequel to the Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure and it also features a whole new line-up of characters.
As you may well have known from the title, this game is about a line of giant toys that are tossed into the video game environment. It focuses on the history of the Skylands and why it came to the present time.
The game has the same villain from the previous title, Kaos. Kaos was transported into the present time and finds himself inside a toy store. In there, he finds a mysterious portal that teleports him back to the realm of the Skylands.
Kaos was transported back to Skylands, but not in the present time, but rather, he was teleported back in time (approximately 10,000 years ago). It is a time where the Skylanders tribe and the giants once roamed the land.
Both the Skylanders and the giants were ruled by giant robots that are called the Arkeyans. In this game, the player must unravel the story of the Skylanders’ pursuit to free themselves from the bonds of this evil giant robot race.
You, as the player, must go to where Kaos is and rebuild a ship so that you can go to a particular place in that timeline called the Lost City of Arkus. You must get there before Kaos does or everything will be destroyed that might alter the timeline.
In the Lost City of Arkus, you are to get an artifact which will help the Skylanders defeat the Arkeyans once and for all.
The gameplay of Skylanders Giants game for the Nintendo Wii is awesome and fun. The game is pretty much an action-adventure game with childish elements to it. This game is perfect for young audiences and people who are young at heart.
You, the player, must control different Skylanders in order to help defeat Kaos and his nefarious plans of conquering the Skylands.
Since you can control different Skylanders in the game, you will have different options. For one, you can use a melee Skylander if you want to deal more damage and go to the battle head on. Or, you can use a ranged Skylander that shoots projectiles towards your enemy. Use either of them according to your preferences.
Story wise, the game is pretty much okay. It is not that compelling but the game is quite fun to play. The game uses the Nintendo Wii’s gamepad pretty well. Best of all, you can import characters from the original Skylanders game as it is forward-compatible.
