    The fun platforming, inspired level design, and bevy of character suits all make this a game worth experiencing. Although the formula is a bit derivative, Disney Universe has such a unique style that you won't notice it that much.

    A fun-filled affair, that more than compensates for its simplicity with strong multiplayer support and creative level design. A great title for all the family to enjoy together.

    I think the best way to break Disney Universe down is like this: If you have kids aged nine or above they will no doubt get enjoyment from the game, especially in co-op, but the repetitive nature of the levels will start to grind a couple of hours in. If your kids are younger though there's a good chance they will think this is the best thing ever.

    Has its problems, but it's a solid title bound to please its intended audience.

    With a host of exciting power-ups and a wealth of gruelling bosses, in addition to a selection of back-to-basics retro challenges, Disney Universe is a highly entertaining package. It might not encompass the hardcore appeal required to command a must-have purchase, but it's still a valuable diversion for families and younger demographics.

    Disney Universe is a pretty game for young gamers. Disney Interactive did a good job leaving from the classical tie-in structure and creating something simple but funny enough to entertain children.

    Disney Universe is a misleading title. The game lacks the typical Disney magic and isn't that involved with the franchise. The only Disney related things in this game were a few costumes and the names of a few movies. Only the youngest of gamers might enjoy this.

    Oh, God, what a beautiful, pleasant surprise! I thought this was going to be one of those generic, stupid theme games for kids - and how wrong I was!! I gave this game a chance and it surprises me still. It's like a perfect combination of many genres. Think of it as a mix between Mario Party and the Lego games and you'll get the picture. It's a fun, nice, warmhearted party game that will entertain everyone, every age. It's not too simple nor easy - it actually carries a bit of a challenge here and there. There's tons of stuff to collect and a lot of replay value. And don't be fooled by the fact that you don't actually play with Disney's characters, but as blue guys dressed like them. It totally works and, on the end of the day, this game is a blast! Expand

    Disney Universe is a really fun game! I'm 31 years old and it's an excellent platformer when you need a break from killing people in FPS games. The game has a lot to offer with a ton of Disney-themed levels. I've been having fun playing it and definitely recommend it. Only cons I can think of are I wish you could control the camera with the right analog stick and it would be nice to switch costumes on the fly. Other than that, great game for kids and adults!

    For me, this is the ultimate level two game for anyone between 8-12. It's aesthetically one of the most gripping games in terms of colour and originality, while gameplay combines all the best elements of the LEGO series and Little Big Planet. My only criticism is the simplicity at times and the insistence of paying more for the best content. I also think that the PS3 version is best, and that single player is the better way to go it's annoying have your friends fight you with dumb powers while you're actually playing the game. Expand

    Great affordable fund multi-player platforming game to play with your kids. I wish there were more games like this that I could cooperatively play with my son that don't require blood, guts, foul language or killing people. Overall very fun gameplay experience. I like that all of the classic Disney and Pixar franchises appear in this game. Kids will get a kick out of that, especially with the ability to dress as their favorite characters. Expand

    I bought Disney Universe to play with my 6 year old daughter. She loves it and can't get enough. I too have enjoyed the time I've spent playing with her. The game isn't challenging as there is no punishment for dying, so it's perfect for the younger members of the family. The graphics are cute and crisp. The controls are nothing special but they do their job. The gameplay can be quite chaotic and there are ample chances to stitch over other players for extra coins. Good, clean fun! If you have kids in the 6-10 year bracket, I can heartily recommend this game. If you have kids over 10, however, then you should probably knock a point off the score for each successive year. If you are thinking about playing Disney Universe as a viable single player experience... well, uh... There might be a place for that but certainly not in this lifetime. Expand
