Summary: My son is entertained for months. It does come with several starter characters but you will need much more. I didn't care for having to go back to the store and buy more. However after awhile I realized that obtaining new characters refreshed the game in his eyes.
Summary: It's a great game just a little short. I wish there was more levels since there are so many different skylanders to buy and add to the game. I do like that there are different characters but hate that it costs so much to get additional ones.
Summary: I bought this to see what all the hype around Skylanders was all about. There's really two components to the product so I talk about the game and toys separately. The Game: Skylanders is targeted at children, but the gameplay is compelling enough to keep adults interested.
Summary: Last year saw a surprising hit in video games, Skylanders Spyro's Adventure. It became a virtual juggernaut with individual characters flying off store shelves (and subsequently appearing on 3rd-party sites such as EBay).
