Rated 8 out of 10 by ThatBuffalo A decent Game, but don't go overboard.
I got this game for Christmas 2012, and I thoroughly enjoyed it on the first and second playthroughs. However, you can only go so far in this game without caving and getting more figures. After you beat the game once, you unlock nightmare mode, a much more difficult version of the same game. Once you beat this, however, it falls flat. There is no special dialogue on the different difficulties, the levels are linear, and all you have to show for a nightmare playthrough is a different ending cutscene and a stat-boosting hat. Of course, you can buy more characters to play as, which add a new dynamic to the game as elemental areas are unlocked, and heroic challenges are brought out to play through, but in the end, the characters you really want are packaged in sets of 3 with characters you don't really care for. On the subject of characters, each one does have a distinct feel to them. They all have different dialogue, they all have their own gimmicks that make them clearly different, and you can customize them with nicknames and hats. They should make it fell like a completely different game, but instead it feels like the same world 1-1 with different power-ups. Overall, it is a fun game, but don't go in expecting a particularly deep story or high replay value. Play it at a friend's house, because if you own it personally, it can get very expensive, very quickly.
Rated 0 out of 10 by sonic21 looks sooo awesome!
I loved the first game and cannot wait to get this one, however the price is outragous. Trust me, i would pre-order ASAP because its going to be a nightmare trying to get it as soon as it comes out, along with a few characters. The activision company is probably going to make some of the new characters hard to get and rare to find at any local store. Anyway, sounds like a boss game and cannot wait until it comes out.
Rated 0 out of 10 by corschm Gonna be totally awesome!
The First skylanders was a huge hit! I could barely find any skylanders and i bet its gonna be the same here as well. it kinda sucks that u only get one giant instead of three like in the star pack, but i guess they are trying to make it fair to starters and masters that have played the first one and beat it. its probably not gonna be there the second so id pre-order too.
Rated 10 out of 10 by wreckingballskylander12 I explain how this game explains the Wii's sucess.
The game is awesome! It meets the requirements as Spyro's Adventure. Plus, there is more to do in this game. You will enjoy it! Even if the Wii's graphics is bad, this game's graphics is amazing compared to the other games.
Rated 9 out of 10 by wesyoshi Fun and epic
This game is a real good one.I think it's so epic because
after you beat the game, you aren't close to finishing.
You still have to collect all the soul gems etc., beat all the arena
battles and heroic challenges, and collect all the upgrades.
Rated 0 out of 10 by LegendofLink New Story... Good
I have about all of the skylanders and am getting pretty tired of doing the same exact story to lvl them up and get gold. Good thing their coming out with the new game so it will be a new story... hopefully a longer one too.
Rated 0 out of 10 by R1ck Recommend For U Gamestop
Put a bonus for preordering this so u get more sales and money too because most people would wait since there is nothing special for preordering it or preorder somewhere cheaper so with the preorder bonus everyone would be happy

Rated 0 out of 10 by Epicman326 The collection grows...
This is probably gonna be a good sequel from Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure. Their will be 8 new giants and 8 new regular skylanders. So gonna get this game.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Caspian24 Get this game its great
Skylander wasn't a bad game so I think that skylanders Giants is going to be great. I can't wait till it comes out.
