Skylanders Giants?

Do your children have this game for their gaming system?  Would you recommend it?  Why or Why not?

Our son really wants this game for Christmas for the XBox 360 but I know nothing about it.  Really could use some help here before I got to buy it.  I see that Walmart is having a good sale on it Thursday at 8:00 if I can get there, so just wanted to get some opinions first.

DS has it as well as the original skylanders game. He loves it and I personally think it's worth buying. The only down side to it is you have to buy the characters to play (when you buy the starter pack you'll get 3). The characters will be hard to get as it will be a popular game so if you can get them i would start picking them up now.

My DS has both games for the 360. DH took him to get Giants the day it was released. We have all the characters for the original game so now we're adding the new ones to our collection. It was very hard to find the original characters when the first game was released. I think they realized that and have done a much better job at having plenty of them out now. The game is a lot of fun and I definitely think it's worth the money.

we have the original skylanders, I HATE that damn USB connection, we're on our second one because they keep loosing the damn thing.


But we're on our second one because they LOVE the game.  Whatever, they can play without fighting.

 My kids have skylander and skylanders giants. My kids enjoy the game but the thing is costing me a fortune .

 I paid 75 bucks for each starter kit and a 10$ minimum for each skylander. I comes with 3 to start. We now have 40 so you can imagine what this is gonna cost to complete both collections

Ok I put this on layaway last night, the guy at the counter said since we have the original skylanders, we do not have to buy the new portal?? all we need is the new game disc and the giant figures? He also said the giant figures work in the original game?

We have a TON of the original figures so I'm annoyed that they came out with a different version of it...

My son is 5 and LOVES it he has the first game then he has  giants for his wii and his ds. My 3 year old DD loves it as well so they share the ds version since all the figures work . We bought the special charger since the batteries are constantly going dead. The games totally worth it if you are willing to pay for  the little figurines.
