3.0 out of 5 stars Kids love it, but the whole concept is pay-to-play or pay-to-win, 20 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Skylanders Giants: Starter Pack (PS3) (Accessory)
This in its own right is a good game and the quality of the portal and the figurines is good. However the whole Skylanders craze is basically like a subscription to an MMO like World of Warcraft. The kids are always wanting more characters (at 10 a go) and certain parts of the game cannot be accessed without certain characters. If you don't mind the investment (and we have spent close to 100 on it so far) then fair enough, but there are far better games out there for less eg Ratchet and Clank. Although part of the fascintation for kids is peer pressure.

Also: there is a Disney version coming out as well as a new "transforming" Skylanders which will no doubt make some of the Giants redundant.
