Disney INFINITY Starter Pack
Good, Just Confusing
The title sums it up--the game is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G, except for the menus. They're confusing. I would DEFINITELY recommend this to a friend.
Best Game Ever! I Pre-Ordered It And When It Came, I Was So Excited!!! I Invited My Grandparents Over And My Grandpa And I Played It For HOURS!!! We Beat The Incredibles Playset! It Took SOOO Many Hours But It Was Worth IT! This Game Isnt Just For Kids, Its For All Ages. Its Way Funner To Play With Someone, Its Fun To Play Alone, But More Fun To Play With Someone. I Recommend This For Everyone! Kids Will Have A Blast Playing It And Parents Will Have A Blast Watching Their Kids Face Expressions. I Say Its The Best Game Ever! I Think Its WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY Better Than Skylanders. So Get It And Have FUN!!
the price :(
its good but i really don't like the price they could just lower it then rise it till more and more gamers get or people wont get it you know kids dont care about the price but parents do cause of child support
5 and 8 yr kids disappointed. My Disney mistake.
I went in to buy Skylanders but was sold on the possibilities of the Disney worlds. The starter pack means it is one player if you want to go on a themed "adventure" because only pirates can be in the pirate adventures and only Incredibles in their world... The graphics are disappointing and the sound is mediocre at best. This game is supposed to compete with Skylanders. I don't have Skylanders but I now wish I did since more than a few free online games are far superior.
Excellent Game - Great Expansion Ability too
Ive read some of the reviews about the Kids who got bored with the game in xx hours - I cant say Id be surprised if some kids did get bored, if they are used to COD, GTA, etc ... Its not that kind of game. Ive played the pirates, monsters and incredibles - I also have the Cars Set but haven't used it yet - The games are fun, theres some puzzles/etc - its not hard, but its not easy. Calling it boring would be like called the Lego Series boring (Not being able to die / etc). The game is fun - The power discs are cool, and I had no plans to get more than a few, until I started - Now I have all of them including the 4 RARE ones (Yes 3 in the set and 1 from Toys R Us). Overall - Its a cool idea, better than Skylander (By that's an Opinion), and if you like Disney at all - You'll love this game.
High expectations meet disappointment
I had high expectations for this game from what I heard about it at E3 and was really looking forward to playing it with my son, so I bought two copies. I now wish I had my money back.
In typical third person fashion I have ran into many areas where you can not see what is happening, or in combat you get cornered and can not see the enemy. This is average from my experience for third person games so it could be passed off as "normal". In story mode, characters will interrupt action with dialog, or stop me from collecting treasure while they go on, and on, about whatever is happening in the story. This is frustrating. Could they at least wait till combat is over?
The Toy Box mode is not very intuitive. Doing the "Mastery Adventures" is highly recommended. I have had better experiences doing Forge mode in Halo.
I specifically bought this game to play with my son that lives 6 hours away. We have yet to be able to join each others games online. The message given does not help us figure out why we can not get together. We are both experienced gamers (my gaming score is 39K+ and his is 15K+) so it isn't like we haven't dealt with these kind of issues before, but this is the first time that we can not figure it out, and there is no help to be found with this issue either in game or on the Disney Infinity website.
Also, very disappointing, is that multiplayer is only supported in the "Toy Box" and not in the storyline modes, although you can do split screen local co op for storylines. Another large disappointment from a major release from a major IP, from a major corporation.
Again, I really, REALLY wanted to like this game, but as much as I try, with about 10 hours of game play into it, I find nothing but disappointment.
not worth it
blocky graphics and slow play. for $80 this game isnt worth it. looks rushed. should have released on xbox one. just trying to squeeze more cash out of dying consoles.
Worth Every dollar.
I saw this game in late June of the trailer of sully and Mr incredible with jack sparrow. Me being 16 years old i found this game to be childish and i might look weird for playing it. as i saw more videos of the game being shown off in its toy box mode it reminded me of one of my favorite games which is toy story 3 toy box mode. it brought lots of the great moments and features. it made me remember the great fun i had on the game. as i was shopping around i saw the game of a pre order edition not sold. i bought it and im glad i did the game has good game play good sound track. and can go into multiplayer lobby's to find people to play with up to 10 player lobby's which if you have ever played the game it would be all out madness which would be good. sure purchasing the player figures could be expensive but you can buy bundles of 3 non popular figures such as mike from monsters inc, a pirates of the Caribbean character (never seen the movies) and the wife of mr incrediable for 30$. or buy a two figures from a popular movie for 40$ with its play set. great game tons of fun wont be mad no matter what age.
Gaming Magic!!! For ALL AGES!
Believe me when I say that this game is magical. This game posses a great thing that not many games today have. Disney Infinity is a game that really does bring your toys to life and shows the Disney characters that we all grew up with. To fully enjoy this game, one needs to understand that the game itself is much more than just one game. It is true that the starter pack is a bit pricey, but you get not one but three different adventures that you must go through. Each 'play set' is like the characters campaign that they must go through to finish their initial story. You could easily play and beat the main story with-in a few short hours but you must look beyond what is given to you and find the hidden adventure inside. By finding these extra missions and fighting extra baddies you unlock more 'toys' and fun. For after you complete side missions you are able to find more stuff to use in the toy box. (Which is probably the best part!) People complain that you have to have another character to match the campaign to play co-op. (For instance, you have to play with Sully and Mikey to play their play set.) But it makes sense! You can't play as Captain Jack in The Incredibles What sense does that make? If you want to mix up the characters and settings you use the creative the magical toy box to do what ever you want!
Others say that this game is boring or to complex for little kids. I say that it just needs getting use to. In the beginning you must complete certain things to get you game running. After about 20 min. of your time they let you do about anything you want. What you get out of the game is what you give it. When I first started I had a little fun with the characters and getting to know what they do and how their unique abilities work. After about a half hour, I got into the game's play sets and started to play with a sense of order. Everything is organized and mission based in a free roam world. You can choose to do the missions or go about looking around and solving problems. But after an hour or so I am itching to run around and fight along side pirates against Arabian Aladdin soldiers. Or go go-karting around the famous Disney castle. While switching characters and weapons and build forts I couldn't get enough. I couldn't wait to play with my friends online or show my brother my cool fort I had built. The game is endless and generates such fun that I was disappointed when I realized I had to eat lunch or I would surely eat the controller. If you have little kids and you are thinking of getting this game, go for it, but I recommend that you play along with them and watch Disney's magic in action and help your child. This game is for any age and is for anyone who wishes to relax and visit the imaginative world of your Disney toys and do what ever you want from racing, fighting, flying, exploring, searching, and of course building. With the incredible space you have of endless fun, get this game if you choose to. Maybe then you will know what I am babbling about.
Waste of money...unless you have a child
I did some research a couple of weeks before the release and was highly disappointed that you needed two characters from the same movie to play co-op in the adventure mode. If we had not already paid in full and told my son, I honestly would not have bought the game simply because of that. Now, my son and I are stuck playing separately or just in toy box mode, which truthfully gets ridiculously boring. He loves it though, so obviously it's good for seven year-olds. I love the actual adventures and found The Incredibles, to be by far the best. He enjoys watching me play sometimes though or playing by himself, but he's definitely not a fan of playing separately often. Overall, it isn't awful, but it's nowhere near what I expected and overall, I am pretty disappointed.
