Only you can mix and match their tops and bottoms, put them on the new Portal of Power and help save Skylands.

Swap Force is quite refreshing!!!! It has just enough "old" to make it familiar and lots of new to make it exciting again! It doesn't matter if you are new to the franchise or an old fan, a young child or a parent playing along, you will enjoy SWAP FORCE!! I LOVE THE WAY THEY HAVE THEIR CAMERAS ANGLED FOR BATTLES, ESPECIALLY IN 2 PLAYER STORY MODE. You can see the "big" picture (it's not a split screen view) and so you don't hurt your partners in battle because you can see where they are.. Divide and Conquer!;)

OLD vs NEW:
The graphics are more colorful and some of the characters do have a little bit of a "cartoonish" appearance and the lip syncing to words is off(not a deal breaker, read the words you won't notice). For instance, the Chompies are back but their eyes are longer which makes them a little more silly looking. Don't let that deceive you into thinking that this game is a breeze. It has the ability to adjust the level of difficulty like it did in GIANTS. From Easy, to Nightmare Mode it has something to offer everyone. It still has hats, treasure chests, puzzles, Kaos and Glumshanks, Flynn, ability to buy upgrades, quests, battles, two players in story mode, and the same camera angles to attack from. You can use ALL of your older Skylander figures and in fact, if you are new to the franchise, make sure to buy a Giant if you enjoy being able to complete everything. I am early into the game and the first and second levels have an area where you need a giant to unlock a treasure chest worth coins. So it is not mandatory to have a giant, but don't put them away if you already have them. The narrator reads the words on the screen, so a younger child could play it alone or you can play with the sound down.

I am not going to provide a detailed review as others have done a much better job that I would but there are a few points I will share.

Our children loved the first two Skylanders games and as a result we 'invested' in a lot of the figures. They had, however, gotten to the point where they did not play it that much anymore so we were not 100% sure how much they would get into Swapforce.

Let me say, they are into it! They love it and they love playing with both the new figures and the older ones as well. In fact, they don't really care that they only have a couple of new figures and they really don't use the two swappable figures that much in favor of figures from the other two games.

The graphics are a huge step forward with a solid score and good sound effects. There is nothing totally new in this game but there is enough that is different that it makes for a lot of fun.

Also, on the Wii U you can use ANY of the controllers: Game Pad, Pro, Wii and you don't need motion + either.

The parents like it as well but don't tell the kids that :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Here's what the kids think.. October 30, 2013
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii U| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
We all loved the original Skylander game when it came out and then the Giants version seemed even better! Well the kids all seem to agree that SWAP force is the best game yet. As an adult, I even thought it looked really cool when it came out. The idea of mixing the characters is a nice addition to game features. I can't wait to see what ideas they come up with next in this series. We have kids from pre-K to high school all in agreement on this being a five star product!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great next version with some nice visual enhancements October 13, 2013
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii U|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My son, who just turned 10 this month, LOVES Skylanders. We got the first one, Spyro's Adventure, only a month or so before Giants was released, so we got it cheap, and played the heck out of it. Bought a lot of figures, really had fun playing two player together in it. When Giants came out, we got more figures, all the giants, and had even more fun. He likes both versions, so we didn't suddenly not use the first game after Giants was released.

I got the wireless version for the iPads, and another wireless version for his 3DS, and he enjoys all of them.

We just picked up this new version today on the release day, and spent the last few hours playing, and so far I can't come up with a single complaint about it, other than the graphics for swapping characters on the portal seem a little slower than previous versions, so it feels like it's a longer pause when swapping figures here.

Figures work from previous games of course. And it's pretty slick swapping the figures around, getting a bottom that you like and a top that you like, and customizing a character. It works well. The magnets are strong, so there's no feeling of looseness or flimsiness in them - you can lift them from the top half and the bottoms stay.

But it's the graphics that really flesh this out, compared to the other versions. Granted, this isn't the photo realistic type of game environment. But the difference between the original and then the Giants version is just stunning. Even the blocks that you push to allow you to get to another area look better.
