Summary: The game play is simple enough for a 6 year old but is not horribly tedious for an adult to join in. The solo mission is shorter than I thought it would be. Then you're stuck just putzing around with various side games. The interchangable characters that can and almost must be additionally purchased are a brilliant if devious marketing scheme.
Summary: My 6 year old fell in love with this game. We now have about 50 skylanders and all the games. SWAP force is clearly the best game as far as graphics and production although I liked the sky stones in Giants which are unfortunately absent here.
