@Zombrex: That's a good point, and the context can make or break the argument of "offensive language" in this case.
I, however, am more concerned about the technical issues referenced in the review. A number of the comments below are zeroing in on the "objectification of women" and "offensive language" as evidence that the review has no merit, but the "glitches" and "horrible frame rate" sound like issues that make this an objectively poor game.
@whatsazerg: Nah. I don't really think anyone can argue against a collection of last gen games for the same price as a single new release. The problem, in my view, is when they "remaster" a single game and release it for $50.
That said, I feel there have been a disproportionately high number of "remasters" on the current generation of consoles (especially considering they haven't been out for a full two years yet).
So they finally added online functionality. I hear Superchargers also allows you to play through the entire campaign in online co-op, in addition to the Mario Kart-lite racing mode.
Looks the series has made real progress. Too bad the gimmick from the last game (trappable villains) is completely absent, and the ones even further back (Giants and Swappers) have greatly diminished relevance.
@toffifee: To be fair, this one sounds like the least expensive in that regard. With elemental gates gone, you only need to buy two extra toys to see everything (assuming the gates are gone entirely). With the first game, you needed five extra figures (one for each missing element) along with the adventure packs (level add-ons). Swap Force and Trap Team were probably the worst of the bunch, since a couple of the figures you needed weren't even available until six months after release (Stealth-type swappers and Light/Dark trap masters).
That said, you could "finish" any of the games with just the content of the starter pack. The other stuff was extra, akin to finding all the collectibles in another game. Skylanders, however, is probably the worst case disc-locked content in video game history. They get away with it, however, because the "unlock" keys come in the form of physical items (in this case, toys that kids can play with).
