My grandson has the "regular" Skylanders and loves them, so when the Giants came out, I was so excited to buy it for him. Not only did I buy him this game, which includes a portal and a character, I bought him many other characters, approximately $200 worth. I anticipated him playing with this new game and these new characters for many months; however, he beat this game in only 3 DAYS!!!! It has only 17 levels and none of them are challenging. What a waste of my money and how disappointing for my grandson!!
