Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition now welcomes Star Wars to the ever-growing collection of Marvel, Disney and DisneyPixar characters, stories and worlds. Together new heroes can join forces with characters from previous editions and embark on adventures as big as your imagination in the 3.0 Toy Box! Disney Infinity encourages you to play your way, whether you explore open-world creation in the Toy Box or story-driven gameplay inside Play Sets!
The Star Wars license re-energizes this series, offering enjoyable combat and adventures through the Clone Wars and classic trilogy
The cartoony look works well for the Star Wars property
Some of the voice actors don't line up with the characters they are trying to portray. The selection of John Williams music is great
Combat is vastly improved, and the Star Wars play sets offer plenty of variety
The Toy Box has always been fun, but it's once again safe to venture back into the play sets
The might of Iron Man and Captain America weren't enough to save Disney Infinity from a substandard showing in the Marvel universe last year. The play sets based on The Avengers, Spider-Man, and Guardians of the Galaxy were case studies in repetition and what not to do with open worlds. Disney Infinity 3.0 arrives just a year after that superhero-sized blunder, and once again expands in size and scope, this time adding the Star Wars universe to a growing roster of characters from Disney, Pixar, and Marvel.
After watching Disney Infinity get off to a roaring start with its inaugural release, seeing it struggle mightily with a great cast of super heroes was unexpected and a little shocking. Remember, this is the same video game series and developer that successfully adapted the atrocious Lone Ranger movie into a fun interactive play set. From the sudden shift in quality between series entries, I didn't know what to expect from Disney Infinity 3.0. Would it continue trending downward and fail to capitalize on one of the most beloved entertainment properties in the world? Or could developer Avalanche Software turn this ship around and rediscover the complexity and joy of that first game? I was eager to find out. Within roughly an hour of play, it became clear that Star Wars and Disney Infinity fans alike have little to worry about.
The opening moments of Disney Infinity 3.0's gameplay are filled with excitement and polish, teasing players with brief gameplay snippets stripped from Inside Out, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, and a race between Mickey Mouse and a hilariously out-of-control Donald Duck. This tour of Disney Infinity 3.0's new experiences gives way to a rejuvenated and wonderfully upbeat game that brings back the creative spark that made the series' first release such a wonder to play.
The Toy Box is once again the main attraction, offering a wide selection of fun new props and mechanics. You use them in worlds designed for adventuring, platforming, racing, combat, and whatever else your imagination allows. I built a Rube Goldberg-like machine designed solely to fling Jar Jar Binks into deep space. The Star Wars selection in the Toy Box is a little light - especially given the wealth of toys in the real world - but includes the hallmark vehicles and monsters from the films and cartoons. I constructed a fairly detailed Tatooine, complete with Jabba's Palace, the Sarlaac Pit, and a sprawling Mos Eisley spaceport using all of the available Tatooine-themed buildings and props. My finishing touches were three Star Destroyers hanging ominously in the sky, and a valley filled with as many banthas as I could place without going over the data limit.
