    As a children's game, Disney Infinity 2.0 definitely delivers an adorable casual game experience. But as a game solely for grown-ups, it's a little lackluster due to repetition and lack of online play in the current Play Sets available for Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes.

    The new interactive toys are a dream come true for any Marvel fan, and if you're a creative type you'll love the new Toy Box features. It's got its shortcomings, though, in the repetitive stories structure and in allowing us to just play the Avengers Play Set out of the box.

    A truly versatile play experience that should continue to grow. [Issue#254, p.64]
  4. We both thought it was an improvement on the original – not least because it demands fewer up-front purchases than its predecessor (you can now play co-operatively without buying additional characters) – but agreed that there’s still plenty of room for critical gamers like us to kvetch.

    The fact is that most players will just want to hop in and play rather than build. Those players will ultimately be left wanting after play set boredom sinks in. Still, it is an improvement over 1.0 and it makes me hopeful for what we might see out of the eventual successor in Disney Infinity 3.0.

    It's missing some depth, for sure. But the potent editor and regular new playable content and worlds ensure that children especially will always have a lot to play and tinker with.

    Disney Infinity 2.0 is lacking in content, even after you have paid out in excess of £120 for all the available playsets, and sadly what content there is is bland, repetitive and generally uninspiring.

    This game is a significant improvement over the previous installment; however, there are still a few things missing.

    The controls of the
    characters are awesome. I absolutely love using the characters that have flight (Iron Man and Nova) because maneuvering them is easy, fun and provides seamless transitions between flight and combat (gives me hope for a good Superman game to come). However, there are a few things that still need be worked out.

    First, is that you cannot play any of the play sets from the first game. I know recoding it for the new version would be so much work; but, I would love it if down the road it became a possibility. I no longer have my xBox360 and the play sets from the first game just sit now (Great work porting the rest of the game).

    Second, the development tools are still not the most user friendly aspect of the game. I never got into the building part of 1.0 (too in depth) and I am still wishing for a tutorial that makes building a lot easier. Minecraft is very simple, aim...place....done. I still don't understand how logic works and although they are trying to give "infinite" options someone like me needs a dumbed down version.

    Lastly, there are way too many bugs in the game. In going through the tutorial it would tell us to do varying missions all of which were inaccessible. We were supposed to save a princess and when we got there the gate would not open and the enemies to battle did not populate. When we were supposed to do racing challenges the cars for us to race in would not populate and the only way to keep playing was to abort the missions all together.

    My last suggestion would be more characters that older generations know. I love the Marvel line up; but, I would love to see characters like Wolverine, Cyclops and Deadpool and characters like Tron, Baloo, Darkwing Duck, classic Mickey and Goofy and Gizmo Duck. The majority of characters stem from movie releases (I know its good marketing); but, the Disney universe is so much greater than Guardians of the Galaxy which was foreign to most people last year.

    Overall, it really is a good game with a TON of fun and hours of co-play. I have a very man's man (Call of Duty, Battlefield) friend and he even admits to enjoy this new version. We played for a few hours just trying to shoot one another in an arena.

    I highly recommend adding it to your library. Like the name suggest it really is an infinite game and with every new play set release, you have an entirely new game to play with characters. Where can you play as Woody in a Tron Interceptor battling Iron Man in Wreck-It Ralph's Candy Crush land?

    Having owned and enjoyed Disney Infinity 1.0 for some time now, the whole family were looking forward to 2.0 arriving on launch day (to be totally honest, my wife isn't interested in the slightest)

    On the whole, 2.0 has gone down very well with myself and 7 and 5 year old girls - the marvel characters have tons of personality and are a lot of fun, the improvements to the toy box are great and the mini-games are a blast. I can guarantee we'll get a lot of mileage out of 2.0

    On the downside, the Avengers play-through story felt a bit flat and the execution of some of the detail can be a bit clunky. But I'm inclined to forgive a game with such an ambition to have so many possibilities, and the kids don't really notice

    Also, this is not cheap. The figures are great and the pressure on parents to keep buying could be considerable

    This review is based on the Xbox One version. I bought this version for my 6 and 10 year olds because the graphics should be superior to 360/PS3. Unfortunately, graphics are not on par with the best of last gen PS3/360. A lazy port rather than a true next gen game, which is dissappointing. Sound, I have a very nice soundbar and woofer and there is notable crackling and breaking, not good. As to the figures, this year you can share ownership and independently level them up. Toy box mode is greatly expanded, includes interiors and allows for connecting 10 toy boxes. Campaign gameplay is good, not great, there is very little enemy variety in individual playsets. In closing, this is a decent game but fails to meet next gen expectations. Expand
