my boys 9 in april, i was considering skylanders giants for xmas...

however, i think he may have passed it

all he seems to play is Minecraft and Arkham City, the Lego games also seem to have taken a back seat

im getting him a wii u for xmas and lego city undercover with it, just not so sure about skylanders now.....

cheers

I am 25 and I like it. But I grew up with the original Spyro games, so they do hold some sentimental value I guess - it was the first game I ever fully completed!

I think it is a little more kiddish than the originals, but I am grown up now, so hard to compare.

I would say a 9 year old would enjoy it.

This.

My sister (12 y/o) plays it and people I work with play it too - and they are in their twenties.

My Local Game did a Skylanders lock in a few months back and there was a wide amount of ages of kids there,from the 5 year olds up to the early teens
