Mar 14, 2014Disney Infinity stands primarily on the strength of the Toy Box experience. The play sets are hardly shallow; each is at least a 10+ hour game in its own right, and despite the common mechanics, each feels like a very different beast. But the Toy Box, as a fully-customizable arena meant to facilitate ridiculous nonsense, is incredibly successful, in no small part thanks to the Internet multiplayer allowing up to 4 players to participate in creating said ridiculous nonsense. The Toy Box's free-form nature, combined with the open world of the play sets, offers a very liberating and powerful feeling, which I am sure will inevitably be capitalized on by gamers alternating between engineering incredible labors of love and vulgar displays of silliness. Such is the Internet.
The price of the starter set is good if you consider the extent of everything you are getting in the starter set alone, but additional characters cost more than they likely should, and the game is designed not to ever let you forget that your collection is incomplete. The cash grab feel is a bit of a shock from a company usually so concerned with seeming friendly to its customers. Although the play sets are by no means mini-games, they feel somewhat shallower than the full games they are trying to be, and quality varies significantly. And, of course, since the Toy Box is limited only by your imagination, it's only as good as you are.
A good game overall, though hardly perfect.… Expand
Nov 18, 2013Me and my wife enjoyed all the three starter worlds plus loved the Lone Ranger playset as addition.
The game runs super smooth in Singleplayer and still OK while playing in Splitscreen. Each Playset gave like 5 10 hours of gameplay depending of how much of a completionist you are. We didn´t fiddle around too much with creating our own worlds but could see the potential in that mode. We could create physic based interactions or crazy racing tracks in the middle of the year or just build scyscrapers so high it took a minute to land on the ground when jumping off of it. And all of that was done by simply playing around.
I would recommend this game for playing it together within your friends and family circles.
Especially kids will love the Toybox mode for just experimenting and having silly fun.
I´d give it an 08/10 since it´s a pretty good endeavor and the Disney magic gets to sparkle here and there… Expand
Nov 17, 2013It's a really fun game especially if you played it with your friends or with your kids. each of the playset feels like their own game. in the toy box you can build alot of cool things but the problem is alot of the objects in the toy box isn't really that useful it's just there and look pretty..
The figures is really expensive.. but it looks detail so it's worth the price. this is a really fun game you'll have a blast playing it.… Expand
Aug 25, 2013My kids absoultely loves it, and basically, that's what counts for me with this game. Game is fun, and it's using the same engine as Toy Story 3, which is great in my opinion. You get to build a lot of different things in the toy box, and I see a lot of fun in the different play sets. Figures is of decent quality. PS: The Wii U lets you see the parts on the LCD screen as you build. A nice feature which the other consoles don't have.… Expand
