    This 'LittleBigLego' turned out to be one of the best Christmas gifts for the whole family and a great journey across six Disney and Pixar worlds especially enjoyable in 4 player co-op mode. [December 2011, p.88]

    Without its surreal mix of worlds and characters, Disney Universe would be little more than a fun, but forgettable LEGO game rip-off. However, with enough charm and personality to fill Cinderella's Castle, it's hard not to recommend it to those who make annual treks to Disneyland or catch every Pixar flick on opening day. If that doesn't describe you, but you're an adult looking for a fun interactive romp to take with your kids, Disney Universe is still a great place to visit.

    The game is solidly entertaining, especially when four competitive players get to whacking each other, racing for powerups, and tossing each other off ledges.

    Disney brings its whole universe in a single video game, forgetting to add a nice story and a more complex gameplay to please all the players and not only the youngest ones.

    Disney Universe is a sweet game, as you'd expect from the saccharin mouse. But it's not an ambitious game, and after playing for a couple of hours, the illusion of the dense level design wears off, and you might feel it's a little bit thin. With more going on, and more reasons to go back to conquered levels, this could have been brilliant.

    Disney Universe gets more interesting when you grab three friends (or kids) and play together, but so does just about everything. There's a nice little competitive element in the game, and players can sabotage their friends' efforts by hoarding power-ups and triggering traps. That said, the game is so shallow and repetitive that only the most easily amused will be able to slog their way through to the end credits, with or without companionship.

    This is not a kids game as there is a bit of things to do. Started off fun but found it really hard wanting to carry on as the game got boring quite fast, and the worse thing was to unlock every-thing you have to beat it twice. Expand

    You'll see pretty much all this game has to offer, literally in the first hour, but the game, unfortunately drones on for much longer. You can roam Disney with cute characters. It is pretty evident that Disney Interactive focused this towards children, but they tried to make a good game, hey who can blame 'em? It's a pretty often used business model, make cute characters, toss in the word "Disney" and every kid that sees it will beg their parents for it. If your child asks you for this game, don't give in. Instead (depending on their age), get them a new Sesame Street game for Kinect, it is geared towards little kids and is entertaining, and is actually a good quality game. Like I said before, the game gets boring after the first hour, and if you manage to see the credits, you don't feel like you accomplished something. Co-op does little to ease the pain. You can expect the same kind of co-op action as in Super Mario Bros. Wii (except you won't fall into pits), but the game still remains boring and offers little more than if you were playing solo.
