Summary: We bought this Swap Force pack for our grandson. It's been a few months since buying it since we were saving it for him. We just now tried to plug it in and it doesn't work. We've done all the troubleshooting involved and it still doesn't work. What a waste of $35.
Summary: I bought this for my 7 year old brothers birthday, he loved it beyond words, he had been wanting it for months. But alas, his joy stopped when we were greeted with the error for a scratched disc, after this we had to go to the store and spend twice as much as your busted disc. I can't believe you would crush a child's dreams. Never trusting you or Amazon again. Send the proper money to the paypal account firstname.lastname@example.org pronto, apologies for the delay on the review.
Summary: My son asked his aunt for this game for Christmas. I knew that the new portal was needed but how would I know amazon would sell it separately when everywhere else had them together. His aunt has no little kids and had no way of knowing. Amazon should have had it clearly stated. Disappointed little boy..... Irritated mom that now has to find a portal.
Don't buy if you don't have the portal! Waste of my time and money!!

Summary: **Item description should be updated, the new portal is required for this game!!!** Bought game for my son for Christmas. He opened it and was in love! He really wanted this game and we bought extra figures. Too bad that it wasn't stated that you can't play this game without the new portal. The other Skylanders and swappable with the same portal.
Summary: Got this for my son as Christmas present. By end of Feb the disc could no longer be read by xbox, googled this and apparently a very common problem whatever the platform. So annoyed as cannot return and also cannot just buy a replacement disc, only option is to buy the identical full starter pack with 3 identical figures .... ahhhhh such a WASTE of money!!! Plus game no different from Giants anyway .... but Minecraft instead - it is SO much better!!!
Summary: Sadly this seems very much the same as the other Skylanders games, and when they cost as much as they do, I was reluctant to purchase it for Christmas. But as my son has the other ones, he just had to have this one, and two months on I can honestly say he has hardly played it.
Summary: Christmas present for my son to go with a new X Box 360. Like others, it was the one present he really wanted and after 2 goes, the error message came up with unreadable disc. Checked on the net and it does seem that this is a common problem. All other discs seem to work fine so I'm wondering whether this is an inherent problem with Skylanders Swap Force?
