    "OK, I was originally introduced to Skylanders by two of my nephews, who have been playing it for quite some time. I was fascinated by the way that you could get extra characters and put them on the “portal” and voila, there’s your new guy on screen. Wow. Multiple characters for masses of playthrough and whilst I’ve been the sort of gamer that tends to wait for prices to go down on a few things, this was something I got into very quickly.

    By: Amazon Customer, on October 13, 2014
    Pros:
    Cons:

    "The most expensive Skylanders edition yet as not only do you need to buy figures (minimum of 9 trap masters needed to open all gates ie access all game content) but also sufficient traps (again at least 9 - one for each element but if you want to trap extra villans you'll need more traps plus a special trap for chaos). Availability of figures and traps seems poor but expect to pay ?13-15 per figure and ?5 per trap plus the game and it all adds up, perhaps more if some figures/traps turn out to...

    "My sons *love* Skylanders, especially Giants and were very keen to save up for this.

    It's a great game series for children and I especially like the co-operative 2 player element. The physical toy element however is pure evil genius, so if you are unfamiliar with how it all works, here are the basics:

    - You buy the game in a pack like this which comes with 3 characters in the form of toy figurines. You also get a little platform called the 'Portal of Power' which lights...

    "To be honest, I'm not the one who should be reviewing this as I have no interest in this kind of thing at all. BUT, my 8 year old grandson loves it! It was given to him for Christmas (on the recommendation of his mum), and he was delighted. He's still playing with it, so it must be pretty entertaining. I believe there is now masses of stuff to add on to it, so that will take care of pocket money and treats. Personally, I'd rather have a good book. But then I am very, very old! Judging by the...

    "Swap Force is a fantastic update to the Skylanders series.

    There are now absolutely loads of things to do in addition to the main story line such as many different puzzles and mini games. The puzzles are varied and enjoyable and the mini games, which take elements from other popular games, are very enjoyable. One minute you have a 2D platform level like Mario, the next you are sliding down a rainbow collecting coins like Sonic, the next you are blasting baddies with a very fast gun...

    "My boy of 9 has the last two Skylanders and wanted this one desperately (his words). He hasn't played the giants game as much as the first as he thought it two simple without enough levels, I was reluctant to buy this one but succumb to his pleading.

    The big difference is the characters can be body swapped, legs and heads can be swapped so the skylander can perform different, i.e quick legs mean the character will move quicker, simple. Not all the characters that you buy are...

    Cons:

    "Ordered the full set to get the extra characters. The portal is connected to the wii console via USB cable rather than being wireless, which has good points and bad. You don't need batteries! but although the cable is quite long you do have the limitations of the wire connection.
    The game is excellent - as expected. My children love the game and really like the giants. They can be quite slow but have the extra power, so they are using their tactical skills to choose who to use when...

    "Before reading any further, if you are trying to decide between the "starter pack" or the "booster pack" take one major thing in consideration!


    The new Portal of Power which comes with the Skylanders Giant's start pack is a USB CONNECTED and DOES NOT require batteries at all and DOES work with the first game too - making it a massive reason to upgrade!!!


    I absolutely loved the first game and only stopped playing for ONE simple reason - the batteries kept running out...

    "Hi i got this game for my sons birthday and he loves it , if he was writing this he would have gave it 5 stars but i think the game is ok but not long enough . It took him only 2 days to complete (not all day) it so now he justs wants all the characters that go with the game but the new characters are more exspensive than the last skylanders . Overall not a bad game but it will cost you a fortune.

    "I agree with another reviewer they are hard to get hold of, but the waiting makes it even more exciting.
    Wrecking ball was the skylander my son had been wanting for a while. He's one of the 'jokey' skylanders of the bunch which I suppose makes them more appealing especially from my sons point of view. He's not one of the strongest for attack but wrecking balls defence is fantastic being 90 out of 100. He zaps out his tongue to kill enemies and my son thinks its hilarious. Another great...

    "The pack is presented very well, you receive a Portal and three Skylanders Dark Spyro (exclusive to this pack), Ignitor and Stealth Elf, and the game.
    Setting up was easy the portal works wireless so not need to worry about cables.

    The game is not the same as on other platforms (we also have the xbox360 game)

    "We (8-year old boy and his mum) purchased Skylanders for the xbox just over two weeks agao and have so far had an great amount of fun playing the game.

    The story (very briefly to avoid spoilers):
    The Skylands have been taken over by the evil Kaos and the Core of Light destroyed. The Skylanders were blasted into space and shrunk and landed on Earth, becoming the little figures and they now rely on the player (the Portal Master apprentice) to bring them to Skyland via the Portal so...
