5.0 out of 5 stars As fabulous as expected
Ordered the full set to get the extra characters. The portal is connected to the wii console via USB cable rather than being wireless, which has good points and bad. You don't need batteries! but although the cable is quite long you do have the limitations of the wire connection.
The game is excellent - as expected. My children love the game and really like the...

3.0 out of 5 stars An interesting gimmick
I can see that the bedroom of our son will eventually be festooned with characters from this series, as it is an appealing gimmick to have the ability to have a physical avatar of the character being played to act as a companion in the room, but with a cynical eye, I believe that it is a marketing gimmick that will cost more than it will return in enhanced play...

The game is excellent - as expected. My children love the game and really like the giants. They can be quite slow but have the extra power, so they are using their tactical skills to choose who to use when. I am a great fan of skylanders and think their ease of use and expandable levels are a huge leap forward in gaming for novices to become experts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!, 15 Jan. 2013

This review is from: Skylanders Giants - Starter Pack (Wii) (Accessory)
Where can I start? My son and I are hooked. We play skylanders every oppotunity we can get. It encourages team work as players have to stick together. Its clever, you place the figure you want to play on the portal (a round castle turret that glows, that is attached to the back of your wii by a usb cable) and he appears in the game. Each figure has different abilities and a different personality. We've planned all the figures we're going to buy. It helps (not essential) to have a figure from each of the element groups (water/fire/sky etc) so that you can do all of the challenges. Its cleverly made so that once you've run out of life your player has to rest, and if you go through all your players in this way, you'll want to buy more to play longer! Bonus, the 'spyro's adventure' figures work on sylanders giants! (But not the other way round).
Worth every penny!

Brace yourself, as a parent, for the inevitable whinge about needing another of the 100+ Skylanders available. Calculate the cost of something that eventually will go the way of the Hot Wheels racing track that always falls apart and brace yourselves for not having the price of a pint (or three) at the pub due to it having been converted into a small piece of garish plastic.

Yaaay. Parenthood, more than a job, it's an experience in avoiding bankruptcy through video games.

5.0 out of 5 stars Skylanders strategy and stomping......., 31 Jan. 2015

This review is from: Skylanders Giants - Starter Pack (Wii) (Accessory)
Love it, keeps the Grandkids amused and me. There is quite a bit of strategy involved with the thrown in bonus of smashing things up. Brilliant idea of the characters not being platform inhibited i.e. if your mate has an X-box and you have a Wii you can still take your characters and use them on his system and vice-versa. There is also four other adventures and to a certain degree the characters can move into these but check first as backwards compatibility (earlier adventure) may be an issue and there are a lot of characters with different "elements" so a bit of research pays bonus for in game strategy.
