    Disney Infinity is off to a great start and will hopefully be supported for years to come. The thought of Avalanche Software potentially tapping Star Wars, Marvel Comics, and other properties in Disney’s vault for upcoming sets makes this game’s future just as exciting as spending an afternoon creating adventures with friends.

    The Play Set portion of Disney Infinity consists of average to slightly above-average platformers, with enough collectibles to send players with OCD off the deep end. Things get better in the Toy Box, where the potential for player-crafted adventures really opened up the experience. Overall, Disney Infinity is an excellent addition to the fairly new toy-enhanced game genre.

    A very good game concept by Disney, with a great potential but with a rough start due to some bugs and a quite repetitive Play Set gameplay. Children and Disney fans will love it though.

    Of course the Skylanders paved the way. But Disney Infinity is more than a copycat. With the addition of the Toy Box as a powerful editor and the starpower of Pixar and Disney movies this collection of action adventures can stand its ground.

    So long as you're willing to put up with some rather elementary action gameplay, Disney Infinity is a solid choice for families, younger gamers, and gamers who are young at heart alike.
  6. A grand idea, but needs deep pockets. [Nov 2013, p.94]

    Unfortunately, the core mechanics in each of these campaigns are dull and lack any real depth. For starters, when you die, you simply respawn where you fell. There is no punishment for death at all. This isn't helped by the simplistic combat and the lack of enemy variety. Even in the combat-heavy Pirates and The Incredibles Play Sets, blocking and dodging is hardly required. Single-button mashing for the most part will do the trick with ease.

    First off some of the critics of this game must not have children or have lost the child in their hearts. I have spent hundreds of dollars looking for a game for my five year old daughter. I bought this game for her and I (don't tell mom) I told my daughter she was going to get a new toy and gave her a pack of the power-ups. Extreme disappointment ensued. After she wondered what i was thinking for a bit I pulled out the starter pack. She thought it looked like a boys game and I told her to give it a chance. Within an hour we were back at the store getting a couple of the Incredibles and the Cars starter pack.

    I have been playing games for 25 years and I have never seen a kid so engulfed in a game. The age gap in entertainment value is astonishing. Basic game play without harsh consequences for falling apart (not dying).

    It is going to cost some money ,but if you are looking for a game to thoroughly have fun with a child I would highly recommend this game. Mom, daughter, and I all laughed and had a great time while playing this. We don't need super crazy graphics and over-the-top button combinations to have a good time gaming and this game shows us why.

    The toy box mode is unbelievable you get to construct a world from your children's' dreams and then interact with it. I have only scratched the surface of this game and cant tell you how much fun you will have with a little one or two!

    this game is fun in all, but you get bored with it easily and there is no story mode and you only just BUILD, BUILD, and BUILD! And why make a build game even thought you only have a certain amount of things you can place? And placing only one Disney castle takes up the haft of the build meter? Even placing bad guys takes up the meter? what is that all about? Expand

    If you have kids aged 4 and upwards and they like gaming, they will love Disney Infinity. I've become really annoyed with the some of the poor 'professional' reviews of this game. Some of the criticisms levelled at it have been really unfair, and even a bit sad.

    The first is that the product is only out there to make money and try to get some of that NFC dollar that Skylanders raked in. I don't see a problem with this. If you saw a successful business model and had the capacity to emulate it with a AAA quality product, why not do it? It's just business.

    And while it may be true that some of the character positioning is cynical, nobody is being forced to buy every last toy associated with it. Added luxuries like the Mater to add to the Lightning McQueen and Holly that you got with the Cars playset make excellent suggestions for friends and relatives looking for gift ideas around birthdays/xmas.

    Disney Infinity is also a very honest game. It doesn't promise anything that it doesn't deliver and it doesn't go heavy on the 'look what you could be playing' element either. There's no carrot dangling behind an outstretched empty hand, palm up.

    The saddening element of some of the reviews is that younger children can't be left alone with it, and need help with various aspects of the Toy Box creation Mode, for example. Why is this a negative aspect? Why are points deducted because you have to sit with your little son/daughter and discover this amazing world together? It's horrible when you think about it.

    Disney Infinity is a great game, quite unlike anything you've played before, especially when the toy box is taken into account. My two little lads have been blown away by it, and it's made the whole family laugh at some points. It's genuinely good, old fashioned, charming entertainment.

    I'm really not sure about this game i bought it, being really excited. And the intro to the game lived up to expectation being magical like Disney always is. But when i started to play the play set of M.U it started to get repetitive and boring. But the Incredibles is improving though. Also i found the Toy box not to be as good as I thought most of the stuff to make it an enjoyable experience is locked, making you have to buy more figures. But this game is very nostalgic and brings back great memory's. Expand

    I can not believe that gaming has come to this. From just buying a game and UNLOCKING content to buying a game with in-game figures, with dlc and etc. This game however is well....FUN! The game will keep you busy with hours of content, extra side missions and the playsets are meh to ok. The problem with this game is that it is LACKING variety in Disney characters from the past and now. A Marvel update is awesome but it just seems way too soon for any fan of this game. The playsets are a mixed bag. It is fun but a little boring. I hope this game improves overtime and DOES not become a forgettable gimmick. The PC version is superior/ cheaper! It is a fun game, the toy box mode is it's saving grace and...well...that's it. I am more fond of Skylanders than this game. I just don't see any value in those EXPENSIVE figures/playsets. COME ON Disney Interactive. Yall are WAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYY better than this! We really did not need the figures and the PC version proves that with it's virtual base. Try the PC version and you will be a lot happier. It is hard to recommend the console version because it is EXPENSIVE! I mean seriously? $13.99+tax to buy a @#$%^&( figure??? Really? When most Skylanders are $9.99? Really Disney Interactive? Really? Get it together and step up your game! Expand

    Stupid idiots made the 15 minute intro non by-passable. Makes the game a horrid experience and not worth anything. Intro's that cannot be bypassed and require user interaction to interact with it..... Who thought this was a good way to make people want to play the game? Boycott Disney crap, failtard company that has not had anything original in 60 years....
    Skylanders is a lot better.
