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.Read more ›
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.
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 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.Read more ›
