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 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.

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.

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.

Fantastic price for this starter set - perfect for younger fans just getting into Skylanders, where they don't need the very latest and most up to date games and accessories. Everything you need contained here - game, portal and 3 figures.

A gift for my 8 year old son, who has just recently been itroduced to Skylanders through a friend.
Reasonable quality, withstands his 3 year old brothers interest.
Good mix of characters (or so I am told by the 8 year old authority).
Compared to prices for the same in Asda and Toys r Us (£20 cheaper in one instance) it was an absolute bargain!

I'm more than a little disappointed with Skylanders Giants on the Wii. I bought the Starter Pack and also a Battle Pack for my son at Christmas. I'm of the opinion this is an average combat game made worse by the fact that much of the game is locked until you buy more character add-ons. Great marketing, buying the cute add-on characters unlocks them within the game when you add them onto the usb connected portal, not so great for my budget or in fact the gameplay itself. What you buy is in fact an incomplete game that requires you to shell out cash to gradually unlock more gameplay. I might have been convinced except that my son soon got bored with the concept and the limited gameplay and returned to playing games you can buy complete rather than in expensive parts.
5 stars for the marketing concept and innovative method to rake in cash
1 star for the value to the customer (Maybe pause to think how many complete games you might be able to buy in comparison to trying to add more characters on to this one?).

First off, whoever thought of the skylanders concept is an evil genius, as I'm sure all parents will agree!

The game itself though I find a little slow moving and restrictive - characters don't move very quickly, can't jump, and there are some odd events when they meet the game "boundaries".

I haven't played it extensively so perhaps this is an unfair comment, but my initial impression is that it could have been so much better.
