Toy Story 3
I just bought this game today (6-29-12) & it's so cool it's way better than the Wii version, so I reccomend buying it, it's a great game for a great price! ;)
A pleasant experience
I have played games my entire life. I have played games that had me ripping the heads off minotours and games that had me decorating my dream house, but very few have had me feeling like I was six years old again. As I rode around my wild west sandbox, in a fancy sports car, the screen went dark for a second before a short cinematic played out telling me I now had access to goo that could either shrink or enlarge anything it touched. My eyes widened as I rushed to go play with my new toy. I made my sports car into a monster truck then I shrunk bullseye to the size of a mouse and zipped around the world like a bee. After hours playing in the games sandbox mode I tried the story mode. What I found was a weak reinterpretation of the movie redeemed by exellent level design and coop options. This game is probally not for the person who wants to mow down terrorists or teach their level 69 mage to blow up a small land mass, but for some one who wants a experience filled with nostalgia, dumb fun, and a little bit of discovery this game is for you.
Wow this is a Pretty Awesome Game!
Wow i thought this game was going to be really bad and dumb or something but this game actually isn't half bad. The most Exciting part of the game was Woody's Roundup or as it's known in-game, Toybox. I just thought that it was amazing how you could just explore the toy story world from the movies. My Friend about 10 years or so ago got the game toy story racers but that wasn't actually anything to talk about. This was a nice change with Viva Pinata and some other things to play other than G.O.W. 2 or Battlefield Bad Company 2, Or maybe even Halo 3. It's actually a nice change from all the blood and gore in the world, have something good to talk about. Overall I though this was a really great game to play and my friend thought that the Trophies/Achievements were a piece of cake, but i don't just play games for achievements. I play games for fun.

Decent, but not that Great
Toy Story 3: The Game is not nearly as good as most reviewers make it out to be. The game is short and overly-simplified for kids. The graphics are decent, but there just isn't enough to this game. I was hoping for something that I would enjoy as much as I enjoyed the Toy Story 2 game, but I just didn't. This game may be great for younger kids, but if you're considering buying it for a teenager or an adult...Don't. I was able to finish this game within a few hours, and the "Toy Box" mode I had heard so much about turned out to be extremely boring and unintuitive. Believe me, I REALLY wanted to like this game... The voices for the characters are decent, but they just weren't the same as the movies, so I couldn't stand them. So, if your looking for a good game for kids, get Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga or something. Don't get this.
What Happened Here?
My family and I are very huge Toy Story Fans. Saw all three movies, bought the toys clothes etc. We saw this game and we thought we would have a blast playing it. All I can say is save your money. Very disappointed in this one. The only thing somewhat decent was the graphics. None of the characters inn the game were voiced by the original actors from the movie. The controls are awkward all together. My wife and I thought this would be great for all of us to play together. Once the screen splits in two for 2 player mode, good luck seeing the characters. This was not a well thought out or put together game. Save your self the money good take your kids to see the movie in the theater and then buy them a Toy Story Toy...it would still be cheaper and probably more fun. Sorry Disney
Not just a quick money grab.
I really thought this game was gonna be another "quick money grab" game. But for once I was wrong, although the game may not reach out to those hardcore gamers. The game shows some respectable quality. I myself is a hardore gamer, but also an open world player. So I decided to grab this one along with red dead redemption, which by the way was amazing. Anyways great graphics, good storyline everything seems to be in good check so far. But the challenge, not so much because one thing I did notice wrong was that the levels where a bit repetitive, and to simple. But another thing I believe about gaming is that no perfect game has ever been made and I thing we are a long way from that golden *game*. So all in all this game belongs with the rest of those suprisingly good games. 8/10
Best Movie Game Ever!!!
It is about time someone figured out how to make a movie game tie-in! This game is awesome, endless playability in Toy Box Mode! I would play this with my kids and play it on my own. nice to see a company get at the heart of a beloved franchise like Toy Story and give you a unique experience instead of a boring, poorly executed version of the movie. Toy Box mode is so much fun - let you actually play the way you want with Buzz and Woody. Roam free or follow missions - either way lots of fun. It feels like GTA, without the violence! Nice to have a game I can play with my kids and enjoy myself. Easy enough for them to pick up and play and deep enough for me not to get bored. highly recommend this one for kids and adults alike!
Ahhhh maybe Yes but maybe Not
K first, this game has some pretty good graphics and good sound blah blah blah...let me tell u this, u get really bord of this game in about 2days!...this a good game for kids 12 and under, but any higher its WACK...it does not have a very long gaming experience, i finished the game in about 37hours total (not including *toy box mode). the toy box mode is pretty fun untill u like bought all the things for ur town in the Al's toy barn shop, it aint worth $49.99, or $39.99, its about worth $15.99...go ahead and buy it but ur gonna regret spending the money on this game! but then agian im 14 and i like toy story but this game is boring after about 2days...i would recomend this game for kids under 13 but not any higher...
I was disappointed.
I bought this game because of all the great reviews saying how great it was and was terribly let down. I did not like the missions at all. They were too stressful and irritating. The toy box mode was sort of fun but my game was glitchy. Wish I would've bought a different game instead and saved my money.
As far as kids games go, this on is alright
I'm a hardcore gamer, I have about 30+ M games. But I still found Toy Story 3 to be an alright game. It's fun, and has some interesting gameplay, but there are a few things that hold it back.
First of all, the music, is painfully repetitive. When ever my little sister is playing, all I can hear is the same annoying music over and over and over again. Though it's really only a problem in the Toy Box mode.
Now let me talk about the Toy Box. It's nothing like I expected. I'll admit, I had some fun with it for a while, but after that I was so tired of it. It has minimal customization, terrible music, and repetitive missions and character dialog. Until about 2 to 3 hours on Toy Box mode, you really have nothing to work with. But by then, you're likely bored and sick of it.
The story mode is pretty good. It's your basic 3D-platformer with Toy Story painted over it. It has minimal glitches, and it's got some good variety to the levels. I never saw the movie (loved the first 2 as a kid) so I really can't say anything about accuracy. The controls work well, and the character abilities usually work fine. But the SunnySide Level involved some incredibly annoying controls and challenge. I hate that level.
Other than the lacking Toy Box, some annoying dialog, and some stupid game moments, it holds up pretty well. I'd recommended it to little kids, but anyone older that about 12 should leave it be.
