Embark on an exciting new adventure with the Skylanders and the SWAP Force. For generations, the SWAP Force protected the volcano that replenishes Skylands’ magic. That is until an epic battle caught them in an eruption that blasted them apart, sent them to Earth and gave them the ability swap powers. Only you can mix and match their tops and bottoms, put them on the new Portal of Power and help save Skylands.

4.0 out of 5 stars 3rd time is the charm! October 14, 2013
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard
Another year and another holiday release for Activision's Skylanders series. I'll be focusing on the Xbox 360 version (which is what I purchased for my 8 year old son). We have been on board with the series since day 1 and have an extensive collection of basically every game, figure and battle pack out there.

To start with, the gameplay is basically the same this time around. The "swap" style gameplay adds another element to things, but basically it is no different than the different "elemental" affinities from the past games. Yes, it is cool to swap parts and make interesting and funny combos (my son and his friends had a blast doing this). The swap in swapforce really boils down to the legs though. Each swap force toy has a specific base element (climbing, jumping, rockets, etc..) and based upon that determines which mini games they can play. Sound familiar? So now instead of having to worry about having a life Skylander to open a certain area, you also have to make sure you have a swap character with the correct base to complete other challenges. Thankfully the starter pack takes pretty good care of gamers.

As side note, we opted for the Gamestop exclusive Dark Pack which came with 2 "dark" swap force skylanders and 3 non-swap ones. My son slightly put off that 3 of the 5 characters were basically repaints/poses of previous characters. While they appeal to that "gotta catch em' all" attitude, I wish there had been something more, well exclusive about them.

The big change this go around is the portal of power, which receives a need re-design. No more raised edges, which makes it a lot easier to fit on even 2 of the giant Skylanders with ease.

5.0 out of 5 stars Game of the Year! October 19, 2013
By J. Dog
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
I am 32 years old and consider myself a huge fan of the first two Skylander games and now the 3rd release "Swap Force".
I enjoy the playing the games with my kids, they also love it and it has been enjoyable to do something together as a family.

I will gear my review toward veteran players of the Skylander series.

So far so good, at first I was slightly disapointed because I put Flameslinger (series 2) on the portal and the Xbox controller buttons are different from Giants. Now that there is the ability to Jump (A), they reconfigured all the buttons. Instead they could have just just utilized (Y) for jump since it was not used in Giants. My gripe is that Flameslinger's Wow Pow speed boost has to be used by pressing my index (X) and middle finger (B), hardly manageable. On Giants I could just use my thumb (X,A) for speed boost. I imagine this same issue will reoccur with older figures, especially ones with abilities that require multiple button pressing. It is a minor quibble but slightly frusrating since Flameslinger is my character of choice.
**update**Problem somewhat solved: The right upper trigger button will work for speed, then I hold (X) for super speed.

There are a few other disapointments and I'll get those out of the way.
- No more Heroic Challenges. But this is also kind of good considering I don't have to go through 32 heroic challenges to ugrade my character's stats any more. Which makes resetting my character to change alternate "paths" easier, or less painful.
**update** There are similar challenges to Heroic Challenges called "bonus missions" which are fun and very challenging.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best in the series! October 31, 2013
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
This is absolutely the best game in the series so far! There is way more to do in the game outside of the story mode, so it gives you more involvement and adds incredibly to replay value. It finally added a jump feature so now it has more of a platforming/adventure feel to it. It makes it feel less linear.

Also, and this is a small but nice thing, the various lands you go to are inhabited by different races, some of them similar to the Skylanders themselves, so it makes it look more like the Skylanders are just the best of the existing races, and not some strange mysterious mystical god-like creatures that appeared from nowhere.

The new characters also don't seem too forced or dumb: they are just as creative and original as the first and second series (something that can't be said for a lot of games, e.g., Pokemon) and you can still use all your old Skylanders as well.

One downside; you do have to buy a pack with the new Portal as the old one won't read the Swapables, but the new portal should work with your old games so you shouldn't have to worry about switching between hardware all the time (I haven't tried that myself yet, but I've read multiple times that it is the case and if it's on the internet it must be true! Right?)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for old and young alike. October 13, 2013
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
We bought this game (though technically it was the "dark" edition) for my 5 and 7 year old girls on release day. It's been just as great as the previous games in the series. It is a little more cartoonish than previous games(which actually I like because my girls don't get "scared" as easily that way) but still a great game. The new portal is needed though so disconnect the old one for this game. My girls happily share "responsibilities" of swapping skylanders and playing alternately. The only thing I see as a downside is you only get 2 split characters in the game originally and have to buy more separately. It's a good marketing strategy for the company and I'll happily play along if they keep making such great games.
