I always wanted to play any of the Skylanders game but never really knew what it was. After playing it I only wished I jumped in sooner.

Some things I learned:

You can use any of the figures from previous Skylanders game with the current game.
If you played the other versions with those characters they have saved memory inside of them.
Buying the additional figures and Traps complements the game play but is not required to play but is required if you want to capture all of the bad guys.

I took advantage of some shopping finds and Black Friday sales and completed my one of every skylander type goal. Now I am 3 traps short besides the choas trap of having one of each of those as well. I quickly became addicted to Skylanders. I love the fact that its just advanced enough to keep my attention but not so hard that kids can't play it. You can also set your diffuculty as well like you could with games like mortal combat.

Capture Evil. Unleash Good.

Kaos has blown up the walls of the feared Cloudcracker Prison freeing the most notorious villains in Skylands. It's up to you and the Skylanders to find and capture them. Using Traptanium, a magic material that can harness the power of the Elements, you have the amazing ability to trap the villains and return them to Skylands to fight for you. Begin the ultimate adventure as you explore Skylands in search of the escaped villains.

Starter Pack includes: one Video Game, one Traptanium Portal, two Skylanders Figures, two Traps, one Character Collector Poster, two Sticker Sheets with Secret Codes and two Trading Cards.

 The game consists of missions to beat the bad guys and take about 10-15 mins per mission. Its a fun game to play after a long day at work and wind down for about an hour before bed. The gamer in your life will love this game as its always changing. Be prepaid to fight the urge to run to the store to buy more accessories!

After reading the gaming manual (that I purchased at Best Buy) I discovered there are other items you can purchase that originally went with Skylanders Spyros adventure that can enhance game play. From anvils falling from the sky to making your skylander move faster.
