The Skylanders Story

For generations, the Skylanders -- a diverse group of mythical creatures, each with their own powers, personality and tendencies -- have used their magical powers, weapons and levelable battle skills to protect their homeland, the Skylands. But now, an evil tyrant with the powers of a portal master has frozen and banished them to Earth. Only you, a portal master yourself, can physically put Skylanders on the Portal of Power -- a conduit between this world and theirs -- and bring them back to life in their world where they can battle to save Skylands forever.

Action Figures with Brains

Skylanders are special physical action figures that come to life in-game. Just take a Skylander, place it on the included Portal of Power, which is synched to your game console and a representation of your chosen Skylander will come to life in the video game and do your bidding. There are over 30 Skylanders in total - each with unique abilities and powers (three are included in your starter pack). Skylander action figures remember their in-game experiences and upgrades as they explore the mysterious world of Skylands, battle menacing creatures and collect treasures. Conveniently, it doesn't matter what gaming system your friends have at their house, the Skylanders work on and across all major video game systems. That means that you can take your Skylanders over to your friend's house, drop them on their Portal of Power and your Skylanders will come to life in the game.

Key Game Features

  • Everything Needed to Get Started - The Skylanders Spyro's Adventure Starter Pack contains everything needed to get started including: a game copy for Xbox 360, 3 Skylanders (Trigger Happy, Spyro and Gill Grunt), 'Portal of Power' peripheral, character poster, trading cards, sticker sheet, web codes and batteries).
  • Multiplayer - Put two Skylanders on the Portal of Power and battle with your friend as a team or pick a Battle Arena and go head-to-head against your friend to see who is the best Portal Master. Either way it's a fight to the finish.
  • Battle to Save Skylands - Use your character collection to battle KAOS and his minions. Each of your Skylanders has special abilities and powers. The more you play, the more powerful they become.
  • Adventures, Mini-games and Puzzles - There are different challenges and mini-games waiting throughout Skylands. Jump in a turret to fend off enemies and solve challenging puzzles to find secret areas and earn cool in-game rewards.
  • Play Online - Each Skylander comes with a unique secret code. Show off your collection to your friends and play fun new mini-games.
  • Expand Your Adventure - Pick up an Adventure Pack (sold separately). Each one includes an exclusive Skylander, 1-Location Piece and 2-Magic Items. Place the Location Piece on the Portal of Power to explore exclusive new worlds and embark on new adventures and challenges.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great game for the Kids November 10, 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Length: 3:13 Mins
I hope this video helps.
I didn't give it five stars because it isn't the greatest game ever. But it is a lot of fun. You will enjoy playing it with your kids and collecting the other characters. If you liked the Lego games, you will enjoy this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ridiculously Great October 16, 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Well as I write this my kids (boys, ages 6 & 4) have been playing the game co-op for the last two hours, switching out their Skylanders a lot to try them all. It's an amazing concept and unbelievably fun. They had been saving their money and bought two of the 3 character packs to go with the starter; a great investment. Can't wait to get the rest, seriously, they are really cool.

Some people will look at the cost of the figures and scoff at it as a cash grab. Is it really any different than any of the Collector's Editions you can buy for Gears, Skyrim, etc etc? It is any different than buying a Star Wars figure at the same cost? As a mini alone the cost is reasonable; the fact that you put them in game and they save that data on them makes it an even better deal. So before getting all bent out of shape over the cost, try to put it into context. Plus they made a great decoration in a kids room.

As I was hooking the portal up to the Xbox the kids were playing with the figures on the coffee table and my oldest said "wow these are even fun to play with without the game". The quality of the figures is top notch, very well detailed and all are very sturdily attached to the bases; I have no fear of the figures breaking off at any point. As someone who has dabbled in collectible gaming like Mage Knight, D&D minis and WoW minis I will say they are probably better quality of even the D&D and WoW minis. Each figure comes with a card and a code to play it online. The starter also contains a poster that shows all 32 of the Skylanders and their element.

The portal glows different colors as you play, it switches like some kind of mood lamp. A nice touch that makes the portal seem truly magical to kids.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shamelessly in love with this kids game October 16, 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The developers of Skylanders said that when they first approached a new Spyro game, they wanted something dark, bloody, and violent. After a while, they realized that's not what gamers wanted from another Spyro game, so they went back to the drawing board and came up with the ingenious idea of interacting with physical toys to power a video game. That idea works brilliantly, but as an adult gamer, I can also see where their original desire to create a game for older players shines through, even if only a little bit.

Make no mistake - this is a game designed for kids. But any geeky adult, of either the standard hardcore gamer or the action figure-collecting variety, will likely fall in love with the mechanics in play here. Especially if you've got friends (or your kids have friends) that pick this up, too.

In a nutshell, the game is powered by your physical action figures, which load up your in-game characters when they're placed on the "Portal" pad. The figurines have memory chips, and your in-game progress and awards/power-ups are stored on the physical pieces themselves, meaning you can take one of the figures over to a friends house to hop into their game.
And here's the kicker - it doesn't matter if your friend is playing on Wii, PS3, Xbox, or even 3DS - because the figures store their in-game progress, it doesn't matter what console or device you play them on. I plan on picking up the 3DS version as well, so I can play with my characters on the big screen at home, and them bring them with me on the road whenever I can.

As far as actual gameplay goes, the first hour is slow, but the platforming and puzzles start to get much more interesting after that.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really well done! October 17, 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'll tell the truth, geek dad (me) for once was behind the times on this one. Usually it's me hyping my (now 6 years old) son up for something new and cool that's coming out. We've always enjoyed video game time together and normally we play one of the Lego games, or a movie property (if it's good, ala Kung Fu Panda). So, when we went to the store and he start flipping out of the Skylanders display I wasn't quite sure. The initial investment isn't that much greater than any current top tier game (Mario, Elder Scrolls, CoD) and for 69.99 you get a nice starter kit with 3 Skylanders, the portal, the game, stickers, web codes and a poster! I'll break this down into 2 pieces.

Part 1: The game play, as I was describing it to another parent what would happen if you threw Fable, Gauntlet, Diablo and a Lego game into a blender. I wouldn't put it quite on par with a Lego game (those are far and away the BEST games for a little one to learn on). Each character (more on this later) has an affinity (earth, fire, etc) and 2 abilities to start. You plug your magic portal, which works across platforms as it's standard USB. The only one it will not work with is 3DS which has a unique wireless portal. And it swirls to life with a magical glow. Once you start playing, you place your Skylander on said portal and voila! He's in the game. It's a great concept, and when playing with one person it works flawlessly so far. If you want to choose another character? Simply remove your current figure and put another in its place. There were some problems I've noticed in multi-player, as you have to use the same portal and it has some difficulty registering 2 or 3 pieces at the same time. With a little finesse it works, but I can for see problems when it's just the little ones playing.
