No doubt it's a great game, and the kids love it.

Just a word of warning if, like me, you're buying extra characters to supplement those which come in the starter pack... The characters in the 3DS starter pack are not "Dark Spyro, Gill Grunt and Trigger Happy" as described on the Amazon listing, but "Dark Spyro", "Ignitor" and "Stealth Elf". Indeed, it seems the characters in each of the different starter packs for the different platforms are different. Suggest you check the photos on the Amazon listing, as the text isn't always correct.

The pack is presented very well, you receive a Portal and three Skylanders Dark Spyro (exclusive to this pack), Ignitor and Stealth Elf, and the game.
Setting up was easy the portal works wireless so not need to worry about cables.

The game is not the same as on other platforms (we also have the xbox360 game)Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure Starter Pack (Xbox 360), the missions are not as clever as the xbox but I don't think that makes it a bad game, the downside is you can't swap a Skylander in mid game, you have to go back to speak to a character who will allow you to change them, which doesn't make it as enjoyable as the xbox where you can swap in mid fight.

I enjoyed this more than my 8 year old son who likes the swapping of the Skylanders, he does like the three new ones that work on the xbox game.

I guess if you never played on a different platform you would know that the game was different, I like it and its a good game for the 3DS

After buying skylanders for xbox as enjoying it I thought I would give the 3ds version a try, and found it to be even more fun then the console version.

Would strongly recommened this game to 3ds owners, plenty of stuff to do and a nice 3d effect. Also the skylanders included in this version are the best!

My kids got the Skylanders game for the Wii and loved it. Like many others I searched for new Skylanders to add to their collection, but with so many shops sold out I looked to the 3DS starter pack as an option for getting some more Skylanders as well as getting a new game, which I was told has different levels than the Wii version.

Now, the levels are different, so is the whole concept of the game and the actions of the characters. In the 3DS version the characters can jump, which is not available in the Wii version. This, for me, is a great plus as is adds a lot to the game play. You don't collect money like in the Wii version, and you can't swap characters in the same manner you can in the Wii version, this unfortunately is a real negative in the game and restricts game play.

The concept behind the Skylanders figures is that they are compatible with all systems (3DS, Wii, xbox, Playstation) so I thought that if I upgraded the characters in the Wii, they would have upgrades in the 3DS. Not so. Also as you don't collect money on the Wii version, you can't transfer money between the consoles. Another down side, but it just makes you work harder and give you more of a challenge.

Portal of Power. The 3DS version comes with a battery powered portal which connects to the 3DS using infrared. This connectivity is only required when changing characters, so no need to have it connected all the time which is great. It also comes with a USB cable to allow you to connect your Skylanders to your PC for online play. Now, I read you can connect the portal to the Wii, which was another reason I wanted to buy the 3DS version. The Wii portal runs out of batteries and disconnects constantly! Costing a fortune in new batteries and frustrating the kids.

We bought the xbox version of Skylanders when it came out and are loving it. We then added the 3DS version to the collection for the portability option of the game and were rather disappointed to find it is a different game. The story is different and the levels are different. The Skylanders are the same and can be used for all the different consoles and as levelling up info is saved in the character itself the information moves with your Skylander. As such the games are both brilliant and they work brilliantly together in the character transfer. I love the concept and the xbox game is awesome (in the words of my 8 year old son) and gets 5 stars, but the 3DS version disappoints. It is a beautiful game, the 3D is amazing and the levels are well designed and plays well. However, there is a time limit to the levels which isn't the case in the xbox game, and it makes some of the levels very hard, especially for kids. To be fair to the 3DS version, if we hadn't played the xbox game first, we may have enjoyed it more. I have taken one star off for the difficulty issue (this game is after all aimed mostly at kids) and another for the fact that it is a different game and that was not clear until we started playing.

I'm almost 20 and I ADORE Skylanders.

WARNING THE 3DS VERSION IS NOT THE FULL VERSION OF THE GAME LIKE ON THE PS3 ETC IT IS A VERY SHORT MINI GAME ONE SO BE WARNED THAT IT IS NOT GOING TO BE A LONG GAME AND CAN BE FINISHED WITHIN HOURS EVEN WITH THE EXPANSION PACKS!!

The game was not how I expected it to be, it's much more violent, it does have some of the old Spyro traits but it also has new much darker elements too. I own on 3DS and PS3 and I adore these games so much, they're just perfect to sit down and have some fun with. The 3DS version can make your hands sweat when trying to fully complete all tasks in the level but as I said the game is short and you will find yourself starting over and over again.

It comes with three characters, Dark Spyro, Ignitor and Stealth Elf which have different abilities to on the console versions. The Portal of Power also has batteries supplied but once you scan your character in don't leave it switched on you can turn it off and leave it off until you want to scan another in and the game stores your scanned Skylander information ON THE 3DS VERSION ONLY!! so if you don't want to change them you can just leave them how they are.
