While on a special mission, a team of Skylanders discovered a secret lair where Kaos was experimenting with a new discovery - Petrified Darkness - which he intended to use to take over all of Skylands! In the fight to stop Kaos, the lair exploded, releasing a cloud of pure Darkness! The Skylanders knew they could not let it escape, so they absorbed the dark energy, transforming them into dark versions of themselves. Fortunately, Spyro had learned to tame the darkness within him long ago. So with his help, these Skylanders now have also learned to control it - combining its power with their own to fight Kaos and the forces of evil.

Review 1 for Skylanders SWAP Force GameStop Exclusive Dark Edition Starter Pack
Improved where it counts.
Location: Nashua, NH
This game is perfect for: kid gamers
I bought this version for my nephew and play it with him occasionally. I have to say that the improvements made over Giants make sticking with this franchise worth it. That is of course, if you can afford it. LoL. Anyway... I love that the Heroic Challenges are gone, and that stats are boosted by Portal Master Level and the Legendary Treasures. Running each Skylander through the challenges over and over got boring. The obvious addition of the 'jump' button opens up so much more game-play variety. Then there are the Swap Force characters. With 256 different combinations, you and/or the young one in your household will have TONS of fun. The are many other improvements, but rather than go on I say just pick up the game.

Does lightcore hex come with this pre-order as well? The standard starter packs have it clearly marked on their page as a "bonus" but this pack does not even though the advertisement on the main page seems to pictures the dark edition in the same image as the promotion for the lightcore hex.

Already preordered this back in august, just waiting now, Though the order page says they are charging for the 'free' lightcore Hex. Hopefully thats just a glitch they will fix before charging me. I'll update this when they charge me, or when it arrives.
