Andrew Gaskill: "First up, as far as the core gameplay is concerned, there's not much new here. Like we've stated before, you will not need a new "Portal of Power." Skylanders is still a simple action title featuring minor RPG elements that you can enjoy with your child. Two player co-op is supported throughout the game. The new adventure can be played from beginning to end with your standard Skylanders characters. Of course, you'll miss out on tons of extras if you don't have a character for each element and at least one Giant."
