The new Skylanders Giants starter pack did not disappoint. We seriously considered getting a Portal Owner's Pack, since we did have the portal from the original Skylanders game, but the Starter pack comes with TWO new Skylanders characters in addition to the one Giant Skylander that comes with the Portal Owner's Pack. Given that the Starter Pack was only $15 more than the Portal Owner's Pack, and the price of individual figures has risen to $14.99, getting a spare portal AND another figure made getting the Starter Pack a bargain!

Oddly, the portal is wired. The original PS3 portal is wireless. I guess we can still play if we run out of AA batteries, so that's nice, but unless the original portal breaks, I can't see using the wired portal much.

The Giant included, Tree Rex, is a lightcore figure. This means that when you put him on the portal, portions of the character light up. In this case, his eyes, and his Chlorophyll cannon. We haven't gotten any of the other Giant Skylanders yet, but so far, we REALLY like the new direction. Gameplay provides ways of getting through each adventure with or without a Giant in play. You can use your old Skylanders characters, and they can now level up past level 10, but you won't get credit for any of the series one characters in the collections awards/accolades, unless they are brand new. We had a fair number of series 1 characters, but the only one that registers as a collected character is the new Drill Sergeant Wal-Mart exclusive I had recently obtained (before the price increase) and had not played in the old game. He does register as a series one Skylander though.

I bought the starter pack instead of the portal pack, because the kids didn't have cynder and jet-vac. So the portal was free when you add all the pieces together and I wanted a backup portal anyway. The new portal is USB powered only, the previous one was battery and wifi, which is better. No more battery or connection problem when the battery is low. The game graphic looks the same as spyro adventure, pretty rough. I was hoping for a higher resolution for the game. So minus one star.

The Giants eyes and other parts lights when placed on the portal. As for the gameplay, I can't say much, but the kids love it... for now... I remember when I bought them the spyro adventure last thanksgiving, they played on the weekend for about couple of weeks and then it sat there collecting dust till the Giants came along. Almost a year! What I am saying is that you don't have to buy all the skylanders giants or the skyalanders, watch and see if they really like it or not.

My just got this for his birthday and he loves it. The coolest feature I think is that the individual figurines get there levels, gold, and weapons "transferred" to the figurine and you can play your character on other people's systems whether it be PS3, Wii, XBox, etc. Know that you only need one portal as this is only a one or two person game and multiple Skylanders can go on one portal. You should also look into Sidekicks and add on "weapons" as they are fun additions.

One of the things I hated most about the original was that the Portal was wireless and took batteries. This one is USB powered. We would run into problems with the wireless one with the original because they would need changed in the middle of the game and lock the game up and cause us to lose our progress even after we changed the batteries. The design of all the characters in this version of the game look better than the originals. The Giants are huge and the one that came with this lights up when you put them on the portal. Very nicely done I think. The down fall is that Activision Inc. is charging more for all the new series 2 figures. The series 2 figures seem to go up to 150 max stats instead of 100 max stats. My kids all loved playing this game.

Beware, this game will cost you some money. Skylander games come with 3 characters but you end up needing more characters to unlock all of the areas, so you'll end up spending over $125 to unlock everything in the game.

If your kid plays it for months on end, its worth it. If your kid is going to play it for a few days and move on to something else, don't wast the money.

I will start by saying, I am an adult who started off buying skylanders for my little cousin who had never played b4 I introduced him to them. Started off w/ Swap Force cuz that was the new 1 at the time & we got it for an insanely low price for a just released starter kit. He was absolutely thrilled & we played together that Xmas. Found Spyros starter pk for cheap right after Xmas & gave that for his Bday. Again, thrilled. This past Xmas we got him Giants starter pk & a bunch of Giants characters for another great deal. Trap team for bday. We (my parents & I) r officially amazing gift givers.

I didn't get to play Giants w/ him & it left me kinda bummed. Being the gamer that I am, I thought, "If I find Giants starter pk for super cheap, I'm getting it for myself". Well, I did. I love it! I felt kind of goofy for being into this kid's game until I saw online just how many adults w/o kids play skylanders. Why? It's a clever game w/ lots to offer & a genius marketing plan for toy sales. While it seems like overkill to have so many characters, they r really fun to have & experiment w/ each 1's powers & upgrades. It's devilish indeed, but not w/o it's purpose & does add to the game's fun & activities. New characters do help u along & give u more variety of attacks, speed etc. U don't have to buy more than starter kit, but it is helpful to have at least 1 character from each element (life, air, magic, undead, tech, earth, fire & water) to get u into each area. Starter kit comes w/ Tree Rex (giant, life element), Jet Vac (air) & Cynder (undead).

Spyros Adventure characters work w/ Giants game, so if u have any of those, they'll assist u in this game. Swap force & Trap Team characters won't work since they r newer.
