    What's the difference between swap force and the others?

    Like, I really wanna update because I have all these skylanders and pretty much NOTHING left to do in Giants. (Except the same challenges over and over again) but if this is gonna be another Skylanders game that doesnt really offer anything outside the main story mode and a battle mode you need another skylanders fanatic for then I'm not sure if I wanna keep going with it.


    On the other hand, that Dark Starter set looks beautiful...

    What is the dark starter set?

    Swap Force's only REAL difference is the 16 figures that can switch parts, like tops and / or legs and they make new powers. The graphics look to be better but that's really about it. I'd love them to make online multi player. That would be awesome.

    I have a feeling that it's still only going to offer the Story and Battle Modes. What else would you want?

    As for what's different... They've definitely added new game mechanics. For one, the character can now jump... which makes this more of a 3D platformer. The swappable characters also will have some special "bottom" abilities -- like climbing, speed, floating, teleporting, etc. that will add something new....

    Then there's the Swap mechanic which means that you will be able to create over 250 different Swap characters (from the 16 -- i.e. 16 x 16 = 256).

    yeah, but there's gotta be like... SOMETHING else. I mean, Something to add more replayability... Replaying the same levels with different skylanders wasnt different enough for me...

    It's so sexy and it even comes with LORE. THERES A REASON THEY'RE DARK IT MAKES ME WANT IT SO HARD

    Damn you people! You brought the dark edition to my attention and I just had to buy it! Countless more dollars going to Swap Force now. I'll likely just buy any new characters and the swap force characters of course.
