Skylanders Giants for the Wii U is mostly the same as the Wii version, but with improved graphics, and works with the game. The game pad allows you to view your skylanders' stat or your progress in the level. On a side note, if you have been have trouble with your skylanders, it might be the portal itself that is broken, so you might need a new one. I rate this 5 out of 5 stars. By Nick Starceski.
