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.
Summary: I have 2 boys 4 & 8 years old and they loved it, but be prepared to buy more characters if you want them to enjoy the game. The base comes with USB cable so you don’t have to worry about rechargeable batters
Summary: Probably the only thing I didn't like was that even on hard mode it was still pretty easy. Though this is a kids game (which I realize why hard mode is easy) it was still a lot of fun and kept me playing!
Summary: I'd recommend this starter pack not only to parents, but also to kids of all ages. As an adult (with a healthy inner child!) I'd have to say that not only is the game fun to play, but you may very well see yourself sticking with a couple of the starting characters long after you've expanded your Skylander collection. One caveat: this game is extremely addictive :) My nephews who are between 5 - 10, have enough Skylanders to cover a 6 seater dinner table. Have Fun!
Summary: I bought this game as a gift for myself and my boyfriend, as we've started playing fun video games together. I'm not one for the gore stuff and prefer kid-like games. Skylanders is definitely that, but with so many options in characters and hidden secrets that it's a challenge for adults as well! The multitude of Skylanders will have me buying and playing with them for months to come (yeah, say goodbye to spending money because the Swapforce Skylanders are $$$).
