Summary: I am so glad I did NOT buy the Value Starter Bundle pack. After going to a popular toy brick and mortar store, I found out that NONE of the additional Skylanders included in the Bundle pack are Swap-able.
Summary: Son loves the game, but beat it in less than 24 hrs and has no desire to get more skylanders to open extra worlds. Thought he'd play it longer than this. I got it for $50 plus another $50 on extra skylanders. Cost a lot for just 1 day of play. I do love that his old skylanders work on it too.
Summary: My 10 y/o son is a hardcore Skylanders enthusiast. Got it for Christmas and he hardly touched it. He found it confusing and the game itself was a big departure from previous versions (which he prefers to play more).
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.
Skylander fatigue sets in - game is ok, but the magic is gone
16 December 2013
Summary: Skylanders 3 is finally here, and my 7 year old was a huge fan of the first two so saved money all summer to get this right when it came out. And he bought it with the expansion pack and a couple of the Swap-able guys on day 1 (total cost ~$150), and by about 15 hours in we had once again defeated...
Summary: This game was disappointing. I got excited by the swappable figures and the new look of the game I wonder how they went so wrong. This game was hindered by the usual skylanders marketing tactic.
Summary: Growing up back east I used to get with my friends after school to play with action figures. The battles we had ranged from Star Wars to GI Joe and beyond. When video games started to get popular I was wondering when someone was going to fuse the two together.
