Summary: This game was really great and I was very excited about playing it with my children. They had so much fun for about 30 minutes. First we had problems with the disc, the screen would randomly go black and it would take a restart to fix. Then it just wouldn't load. We tried to install it on thee harddrive of the Xbox, but got a disc unreadable error. Then we started having problems with the portal.
Summary: When we put this game into our xbox the first time, it said that it was unrecognizable. We tried a few other times and it finally did read it, but kept freezing up on my son. After many tears and much frustration, I contacted Activision, the software company, who said that they couldn't do anything because Larry's Deals is not an approved seller and suggested I return the game.
I hate it don't buy this until activision gets off it's hind end and fixes the disks

Summary: I bought giants and spiro adventures. Right out of the box read disk error. There is no fix. They tell you to exchange the game- guess what they don't play either. Search the web and find all of the other angry parents.
Summary: I bought this a paid a lot for it because it was advertised as NEW but it was not new when it arrived. It not only did not have the original wrapping on it, with the seal, it had no wrapping on it. I do NOT recommend shopping with this dealer.
Summary: You spend $50 bucks on a game only to find out you have to buy all these figures at about $10 each. Of course the kids want them all so you end up spending hundreds literally on ONE GAME. Now the second game is out and there are new characters to collect. Don't waste your money unless you have loads of it to throw away.
Summary: The way they had it posted made it sound like you was getting the game and thats what i wanted i got some little rubber toy. They said send it back but my son opened it already. So needles to say i did not get the game.
Summary: OK, when my husband and I bought this game for my 4 year old son, we really hit a home run. He loved it. It was" as good as Mario", in his words. He loves it, and can't wait to get more Skylanders! I have one major problem with this game. The battery eating portal of power. What the heck is wrong with Activision. Why would they only make a plug-in version for X-box? They really need to remedy the situation.
Summary: I really enjoy this game but I am getting very frustrated when I change characters and the game freezes. I have to shut down my Xbox in order to get the game back and I have to start the chapter all over again. I have read to fix this problem, clean your disk. My disk is very clean and it is still happening. I see by Activision's support page that I am not the only person having this problem. So I have to send them the disk for a replacement..
