Skylanders Giants: Swarm

Hello Portal Masters,

today I tried to take a closer look at Swarm.

I already posted some of his stuff, but let's try to get the full picture.

So, he is obiously the Air Giant and his toy looks like this:

I do like the insect idea, since that is something new. 
His story though, I don't like that much:

"Swarm was once a prince from a proud race of mysterious insect warriors that had built their entire civilization inside a giant honeycombed pyramid. Growing up as one of the 9,000 members of the royal family, he was never permitted to leave the hive. But unlike his brethren, there was a magical quality to Swarm that caused him to grow much larger than the rest of his kind. No longer able to fit amongst the rest of his colony, the young prince broke the long standing tradition and stepped out into the open world - where his size and strength would be put to good use in the legendary battle between the Giants and the Arkeyans."

It is just a little borring in a way.

But ok, they never do much with the stories anyway. 
So let's look at his powers:

First, he shoots stings:

Ok, that was expected.

Secondly, his second attack is a combo melee thing: 

Hm, yeah, nothing we haven't seen before.

Ok, so what else can he do? 
Well, in the video that is all we see. 

So, that was kind of disappointing. 

According to this, let me rate Swarm:

Looks: 4/5
Orignality: 3/5 
Powers: 1/5
Variety: 2/5
Overall Rating: 2.5/5

That did not go well. He just seems a little borring right now, but I hope that will change as soon as we get to see some more powers (this just seem to be the two basic starting ones).

What do you think?

You enjoy the bee?

Let me know and talk to you soon!



  1. maybe his third power is using his back stinger, or maybe calling some of his bee friends to attack people. IDK... I like the bee, he looks pretty cool, but my favorite giant is crusher. He looks strong.

    1. Yeah, Crusher looks great! I would imagine that his third attack is something that targets everything arround him, since the all seem to have something for that in some way.
      But the bee friends might be a good idea, since he is their Prince.

  2. i thought the last attack was him being able to fly....
    but im so going to buy crusher cause hes fo cool
