Embark on an exciting new adventure with the Skylanders and the SWAP Force. For generations, the SWAP Force protected the volcano that replenishes Skylands magic. That is until an epic battle caught them in an eruption that blasted them apart, sent them to Earth and gave them the ability swap powers. Only you can mix and match their tops and bottoms, put them on the new Portal of Power and help save Skylands.

Starter Pack includes: 1-Video Game, 1-Portal of Power, 3-Skylanders Figures, 1-Character Collector Poster, 3-Sticker Sheets with Secret Codes and 3-Trading Cards

All Skylanders Spryos Adventure and Skylanders Giants Toys work in the Skylanders SWAP Force Game.

I bought this when it was half price. I also bought quite a few characters to use with it while they were on sale for BOGO 1/2 off. I have enjoyed playing the game and looking for more characters. It's a bit of a money pit, but all the characters from the previous Skylanders can be used on the Swap Force portal. My suggestion to parents wondering which characters to buy - the player will get the most use out of other Swappable characters and there are 14 of those (16 altogether). The game can be played with just the three characters included (two Swappables and one not, but eventually, the player will need characters with each of the eight elements (Air, Earth, Fire, Water, Magic, Tech, Life and Undead) and each of the eight abilities (Bounce, Jump, Spin, Dig, Climb, Speed, Rocket and Sneak). They will also need at least one of the Skylanders Giants characters. Having these other characters opens up lots of mini-games and allows completion of the game. The extra characters add a lot of fun to the gameplay. Basically, you will need at least six more Swap-force Skylanders and one Giant. The non-swappables are fun, too, but the accessory packs are a better value (Tower of Time and others). You will probably also want a way to protect the cards and stickers that come with the characters. The cards will fit perfectly into a baseball card album and pages. They are collectible and the stickers can be used to play mini-games on the iPad or iPhone. One of my favorite parts of this game is that the difficulty of play can be set to four different levels according to a player's age or skill. Even the easy level can be challenging. One of my least fave aspects is that you cannot save and exit when you want. The game has an autosave at certain points and you have to reach one of those or else lose some of your progress. Not a good thing when Mom says video game time is over for the day. If you get into collecting all the characters, you will find that there are quite a few variations of the same ones - there are some that were made exclusively for TRU, some for GameStop,etc. Between the Skylanders Swap Force website and Wikipedia, there is a lot of information out there about the characters that can help a new collector make sense of the plethora of characters, cards, accessories, etc.

I enjoy being able to participate in a video game with my son. I like how you can change characters by putting figurines on. The figurines double as action toys so we had fun just playing with those acting the characters out. The animated characters were a little disappointing because they remind me of the same ones Disney has used for 20 years. The personalities (good/bad) look like the predictable Disney with no originality.

This game is pretty cool, my son likes how the figures transform into the game. What I don't like about it is, you have to keep buying skylanders in order to go further in the game, but over all its neat.
