here comes the giants

Skylander giants is a really fun game! There is only one thing that parents should be aware about...the consumerism, to get new character you need to buy the action figure which could cost about $10-$15.If your child wants to play this game let him play!!!!!!!!!

Extremely Expensive and Childish

The game itself is extremely expensive to buy and then your children will be pestering you to buy the Skylanders figures for the 'Portal of Power' which will also cost you a great deal. The game is quite childish and not very violent at all. I would say the game is definitely too comical for kids over the age of 10. Kids that are growing up into teens will not like this game and will possibly get bored of it. Perfect for children 6-9 years old but extremely expensive.

Not good for little kids

It is too violent for under 10's because they act the violence they see. I have seen a direct link in 3 children. But it is fun to play - but only until you've beat the game, then you lose interest.

Little violent good for adventurers for justice

This game is epic. Several characters of the worlds elements have grew and smashed. Some settings may be upsetting including a crypt and battlefeild. Also skylanders release flashes of light when they take damage and have a health bar. They need a rest when run out of health and can't be used for the rest of the level. But it's easy to play and his really fun.

Great game folks!!!

I love to play this game with my little brother. This game is fun, clever, and well-written. I hated the spyro's adventure thingy, but I love giants, because giants is much more fun and clever, while spyro's adventure was just kinda boring.

One of the best kids games out there

This game is really addicting and fun, and I highly recommend you should buy this for your kid(s). The only problem about this game is the fact that your kid(s) WILL, trust me, WILL want to buy more characters for the game. The characters range from about $10 to $20, and some of the more rarer characters can range to over $30 on Amazon/Ebay.

You collect different toys to put on your ''Portal of Power'' so you could use them!

Its typically a game for younger kids!

Probaly the best Skylanders game, but pushy for some.

The developers have done a good job with Skylanders:Giants. But parents, be warned... this game is one of those beat-em'-up RPG games with plenty of violence that includes spears, fire, gunfire, swords, knuckles, bazookas, but at the same time, violent humor. The result? Well, this makes it more violent than the first game. But it is a great game, it really is. But yet again parents, you've been warned...

Amazing.

Even better than Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure, although, not as creative.

Great game with some mild cartoon violence.

Even though the game is suitable for a 6 year old and up, the game is still fun for all ages. You will want to buy more skylanders along with the game witch could cost much money. Also, one character has a power where he drinks a potion, ans then enters "Beast mode." This probably won't matter much because the game didn't mean for it to be a drug reference and.

An addition to the SKYLANDERS series, which is overrated and not recommended to buy figurines

SKYLANDERS GIANTS is alright as far as graphics go. The gameplay is well designed except the player is unable to jump without jump pads. The game is fun, but can be time consuming and does become boring eventually. The main problem with the game, is its encouragement to spend money pointlessly. You can purchase many figurines which cannot do anything except in game and usually cost up to $25 each. The gameplay is not effected if you don't but them, but you simply can't reach the majority of the in-game bonuses. The multiplayer is OK, but can become frustrating for you can get players stuck because of the games' lack of split screen. When the players get too far apart, they can't go any further (like an invisible cord) and often gets players stuck. Overall, the game can sometimes be fun, but encourages wasting money, lacks split screen multiplayer, to can't jump and doesn't have good voice acting.
