Skylanders Trap Team Review (Activision)

Skylanders Trap Team
What It Is

Skylanders: Trap Team is the fourth entry in the Skylanders series, and once again, Activision has found a way to completely reinvent the game. With the past three games, you placed a toy figure on the portal to zap them into the game. In Trap Team, you pull a villain character out of the game and trap them in a toy crystal. Once you have trapped a character, you can play as them in the game, just like you do with the figures. In addition to trapped villains, there will also be a new cast of hero figures known as the Trap Masters and new core figures. These figures will enter the game on the new Traptanium Portal, just like the figures for the past three games. Since the game has you trapping and playing as villain characters, Trap Team will allow you to play as Kaos for the first time ever.

Is It Fun?

The game itself is a blast to play and we think kids, and adults, are going to love trapping villains. When a villain is trapped, a speaker in the portal makes it sound as if they are speaking from within the crystal, which is hysterical.

Who It’s For

This is a must play for Skylanders fans and a great entry for anyone who has never played one of the past games.

The game is rated E10+, but is suitable and playable for kids as young as 6. The toys are for ages 6 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

All of the characters from the past games will work in Trap Team.

The game is available on October 5 for all consoles and the Nintendo 3DS. There's also a tablet version.
