|Hex and Drobot being noobs on Skylanders|
Playing Skylanders in multiplayer mode would have to be one of those rare occasions where I prefer another player on my screen with me. Why? Because I'd be switching characters in and out, left, right and centre.
Like I said in my previous post, Skylanders is one of those games which relies on specific elements to unlock a special bonus section to retrieved awesome items. Therefore in real life, relying on me to switch characters on the portal often. And in even simpler terms, having to move my lazy couch potato butt over to the coffee table and moving the damn character onto the portal myself. It's a task I can't ignore either, I have the need to open these secret areas - I can't just walk past them all hoo haa and pretend they're not there. It's like seeing a massive white puss filled pimple on the middle of your forehead and you just leaving it there... Some things just need to be popped and in this case, opened.
Don't get me wrong, I'm loving this game so far; however I'm just stating it's less effort to play Skylanders with another person around who can lessen the blow of needing to shift characters around - which is a good thing.
Playing campaign multiplayer in Skylanders is very amusing. I like it a lot, and very useful too. Too bad you can't have more that 2 players on the portal at the same time; it's a bummer but probably for the best. Having 2 players on the screen can sometime get a little hectic. Weapons, ammo, all shit possible just flying around hitting monsters, objects etc. it can get so distracting and spam worthy. But eye candy-ish in my opinion, destruction, I love it.

Multiplayer battle mode is a great aspect of the game too. You get to fight each other, race to collect the most gems or play for points. A downside is, you can't play against people online, but oh well. And O M G. The voiceover for battle mode is hilarious! It gets me giggling everytime. Just picture this, you have a kiddy graphics, with an epic Mortal Kombat style voiceover. Epic lolz.
I'm not going to lie, even with the annoying dialogues you can't even skip... I'm loving this game so far.
