Summary: The concept of swap-able characters seemed interesting to me, which is kind of why I ended up buying this despite my reluctance after the monumental disappointment that was Skylanders Giants. Still, I only ended up paying about $40 for this game (bought it during the Black Friday deals) so I guess I can live with it even if just for the sake of a multiplayer game. Anywho, on to the game.
Summary: I thought I got a good deal, but it turned out that the game (on CD) is bad and unreadable. I just didn't want to return it because it would cost another shipping fee which I'd already paid for ($5) to ship it to me. I ended up buying a new Starter Pack at Toy-R-U-S for just $35!! The seller should've listed the item as "Damaged", not in a "Good" condition.
Summary: This would have been perfect had it come with the correct Lightcore figure in the box. Our bundle arrived with the Star Strike Lightcore character when the box clearly shows the Grim Creeper Lightcore in the bundle. I'm pretty sure it was just a packaging error. My son received it for his birthday (and he LOVED it) and it's the perfect amount of characters to start the game if you don't have any characters to begin with.
Summary: My 9 yr Grandson was so excited to receive his Skylanders but they didn't hold up to his expectations. He was disappointed & actually said " they are a bit rubbish" the earlier skylands he loved.
