Hello Portal Masters,
When Skylanders: Giants was first announced, only one Giant was previewed. It was the Life Skylander Giant Tree Rex. Today, lets have a closer look at him.
First his art work:
Wow, he seems like a pretty impressive dude. Although he is woody as Stump Smash, he looks really different and captures the life essence quiet well.
His toy also is stunning:
Especially when his eyes light up, he really comes to life. And I think his horns are just cool.
Long ago before the Giants protected Skylands, Tree Rex was a majestic
tree living peacefully in the ancient woods. But this tranquil peace
came to an end when the Arkeyans built a nearby factory to produce war
machines. After years of his soil being poisoned by the magic and tech
waste from the factory, he mutated into who he is now - a powerful Giant
who will crush anything that threatens the natural order of things.
The Arkeyans are really playing a big role in the game.
Ok, let's now have a look at the powers:
First we have hi Giant Right hand smashing the opponents:
Second is his Charge attack.
Ok, so he can crush and charge...
Based on what I have seen in the trailers, he also seems to be able to combine them into a combo:
What is happening: He charges and than jumps to smash the ground.
I like this attack more but I wasn't a big fan of the combos in Skylanders.
They seemed rather difficult to me.
Coming to his last attack (as far as I found it)
He shootsa little light bubles out of his arm, although in other sequences it seems more a beem than single shots.
Who knows... maybe an upgrade?!
Let's go to a vote about Tree Rex.
Overall Rating: 3.25/5
Tree Rex was the first Giant Ever, but in comparison to Crusher, I think his powers are a little Boring, although I like his Design a little better.
But who knows, maybe I will like him more once I actually played him...
What do you guys think? Does the Life Giant impress you?
Let me know!
C U soon!
