Summary: My boys love it. They have been wanting Skylanders for a long time. I didn't get the first one (Spyro's Adventure), but I should have,bought that instead. With the Spyro's Adventure one, you can get the add on (which is the new game with some figures, no additional portal). Now that we have this one, we can't get the game Spyro's Adventures unless we buy the full set that includes the portal pack.
Summary: I bought this for my 10yr grandson, who loved it, but had the game maxed out within 2 weeks. He was very disappointed that the game did not go further. Would like to see Activision expand this game to include older more adept children. The age was 7+ and should have been rated more like 6-7yrs.
Summary: This was at the top of my 7yr olds Santa list. Having previously played Skylanders Spyros Adventures he was excited to get the new version. Big let down as he was able to beat the game in 2 days. I am assuming it is just too easy for him at this point and after sinking a bunch of money into the game and the figures I was really bummed.
