    Toys for Bob have knocked this one out of the park and have returned with what is possibly the very best version of Skylanders available.

    Quite simply the best Skylanders game yet. New game mechanics and an improved speaking portal makes this more than a quick cash in. Though it will most certainly suck your wallet dry. You will be smiling while it does so though.

    With great character and level design, and so much to do, there is more then enough to keep anyone busy. The new trapping of enemies adds a more immersion to an already busy game.

    Skylanders Trap Team refreshes the toys-to-life magic with new portal tech, charming characters, and engaging gameplay that any gamer can enjoy.

    While not without its questionable qualities — expect to pay $120 to get something approaching an optimal play experience — Skylanders: Trap Team continues the series' tradition of catering to kids by treating them with respect. And the new trapping gimmick more than justifies itself through the flexibility it offers... not to mention the amusing and diverse role it gives the game's villains.

    The few new ideas are welcome but not enough to differentiate it from its predecessors.

    Another solid entry for Skylanders, but the upfront price is only a fraction of what you'll need to play to see all it has to offer. [Issue#118, p.70]

There are millions of both kids and adult collectors who buy these each release, 1 search on youtube would show you just how many lovers of this game there are, that said you've clearly been following the game since Spyro's adventure so you must know this.

    Would expect this to be found under many christmas tree's this holiday season and to bring joy into the start of 2015 for many people both kid and adult alike... hopefully it will continue to bring "hardcore" gamer tears out too as it moves towards its third billion in sales :)

    I own all the Skylanders Games and I also own every Skylander. So needless to say I love this game. It is a game that harkens back to oldI own all the Skylanders Games and I also own every Skylander. So needless to say I love this game. It is a game that harkens back to old school gaming. When me and my friends would sit around and play Nintendo for hours just having Fun.

    This game is not for everyone I will add because even though you can play and have fun with just the starter pack. This game was made to require more than just the starter pack to do everything or go everywhere in the game both Figure wise and Trap Wise.

    That being said if you Owned a Trap Master of Each Element and a Trap of Each Element , and the 2 Adventure packs then you could get everything out of the game.

    The best in the series though by far.
