Crash Bandicoot 2: N-Tranced remains faithful to its predecessors, comprising dozens of into-the-screen, out-of-the-screen and side-scrolling levels. Crash has developed a couple of new-found abilities this time around including a new rocket-jump and a super-slide. Gameplay is largely the same as other Crash platformers - run, jump, kill enemies, collect apples and smash as many of those crates as you can. There are 40 levels in this outing and an additional three types of crates to expand gameplay that little bit further. The game world is especially varied this time around. The old beach location makes a welcome return, but Crash's adventures will also take him across ruins, caves, Egyptian skylines and even through space. It's a bandicoot-eat-bandicoot world out there - and a mighty playable one at that. In Season of Ice, Spyro and his friends, Hunter and Sparx, are all looking forward to a hard-earned, uninterrupted holiday at Dragon Shores. Some hope! Meanwhile, a lowly Rhynoc spell librarian sees his chance for that career change he's always wanted. Discovering a transforming spell in the Sorceress' magic library, he quickly recites it, turning his slight frame into a huge mass of brawn and brains. Unfortunately - and hilariously for the gamer - the book was upside-down as he read the spell. Grendoc now has two heads, and what's more, two blinding headaches! In typical supernatural style, the only known cure calls for the wings of 100 fairies. He captures Spyro's close pal Zoe, and starts to freeze fairies throughout the Fairylands, sending his Rhynoc associates to collect the frozen fairies. With the last bit of sparkle she can muster, Zoe sends a magic balloon to Spyro for help. So much for the peaceful holiday plans!

Skylanders Giants is the second game in the Skylanders series and the direct sequel to Spyro's Adventure. Kaos, previously defeated by the Skylanders, finds himself in a toy store on Earth. He finds a portal and goes back to an era where Arkeyans, an evil robot race, ruled the Skylands. Like the previous game, it uses figures which through an accessory called 'Portal' allow to play as the character in the game. The original figures are compatible with the game, but new series of stronger characters are introduced. One of the new characters are the eponymous Giants. These are larger than Skylanders, up to twice as big, and have different in-game abilities such as picking-up large objects and throw them to clear a pathway. The character can be changed at any time by switching the figure standing on the portal. The levels consist of platform maps containing puzzles, enemies, breakable objects that yield money and various treasures. Each level has different goals that must be met to achieve a three-star rating. Once the first level is cleared, the player gains access to a hub from which the levels can be replayed to master it and reach every goal. Some treasures will reward the player with equipment items that change the character's looks and improve their abilities. Those changes are encrypted in the figure and will be effective in other games if the same figure is used; the figures can be reset from the game menu. A new Battle mode with new areas and alter-ego Skylanders is introduced for multiplayer versus play. The Starter Pack includes the Skylanders Giants game and the following: A Portal of Power Jet-Vac figure Cynder figure Tree Rex figure Three character sticker Sheets with secret codes Three trading cards A poster Only Tree Rex is included in the Portal Owners Pack. A legendary version of Jet-Vac is also available as part of a exclusive legendary triple pack, and a glow-in-the-dark version of Cynder is included in the Wal-Mart exclusive versions of the Starter Pack.

When the Volcano of Cloudbreak Islands erupts, elementals perform a magic ritual. It is during a battle against the forces of evil who attacked during this ritual that sixteen Skylanders acquired a new power: they are now able to swap their top and lower halves with each other. These new Skylanders now have joined Flynn and the others in the task of protecting Cloudbreak Islands from Kaos, under the request from Woodburrow's villagers. The game starts when a girl from Woodburrow lands on Flynn's ship to request the Skylander's help. The player must first protect the ship from waves of enemies (the ship crashes anyway), then reach Woodburrow, which will act as the game hub from this point onward. The levels are made of branching paths with some puzzles and enemies, in which the Skylander figure placed on the Portal of Power, who now have the ability to jump, explores and gain gold, experience and finds the many treasures needed to get all of each level's three stars. Some of the paths can only be accessed by Skylanders of a specific element, and the new Swap Skylanders can access paths for which two different elements are needed. The Swap Skylanders have specific abilities on both their top and bottom halves; the top has attack abilities while the bottom has movement and defensive abilities. The bottom also has a Swap Zone power, which is needed to access special challenges that will then be available to play again from Woodburrow. Each completed level can also be replayed to find more hidden treasures when new Skylanders are available. Each Skylander progresses by gaining experience and by upgrading their skills in special pods found in Woodburrow or in the levels themselves. The character progress data is then stored in the character figure. The Starter Pack includes: Skylanders: Swap Force game and Portal of Power Wash Buckler Blast Zone Ninja Stealth Elf Three character trading cards Three character sticker sheets A Skylanders: Swap Force collector's poster Some releases of the WiiU bundle had an exclusive green and gold color shift Wash Buckler.

The mutants from the Brotherhood and the X-Men try to forget their differences since a common enemy has appeared - the dreaded Apocalypse. His plan involves kidnapping mutants, and, with the help of the mad geneticist Mr. Sinister, extract their powers and use them to make himself even more powerful. At first, the heroes must rescue Professor X, who has fallen into the clutches of the enemy. However, when Apocalypse kidnaps Magneto's son Quicksilver, the leader of the Brotherhood is determined more than ever to team up with his former foes and stop Apocalypse's evil plans. X-Men: Legends II - Rise of Apocalypse is an action role-playing game and a sequel to X-Men Legends. The player controls a party of four characters, though only one at a time can be controlled directly. Beside switching the characters for combat purposes, the player is often obliged to do so, because some of the tasks in the game require the specific abilities of a certain mutant. For example, Iceman can put out fire, Magneto can generate a metal bridge across a gap, etc.. Most of the time, however, is spent in combat, collecting loot and acquiring experience points. Unlike the first game, items dropped by enemies are random. The character will level up, become stronger, and learn new skills. The player can opt to allocate all the experience and skill points manually. Each character has several different skills based on their mutant powers. These include melee, boost, projectile, traps, and others. Each character can also learn powerful super skill: for example, Cyclops has a super beam attack that can hit multiple targets; Wolverine has a spinning attack that inflicts heavy damage; Magneto has a metal attack, crushing everything in sight by manipulating metal objects in the environment, etc. New in the sequel is on-line multiplayer with both co-operative and six competitive modes. Four players can play on a single console by plugging in additional controllers at any time.
