Disney Infinity: The Verdict

tablet_retina_landscape_full_0630movies

Disney Infinity ignites the imagination of gamers of all ages, brings a vibrant glisten of nostalgia for the adult audience, and is a jam packed experienced built on the concept of limitless fantasy, unbounded creation, and true unity across the franchises of Disney. Get The Verdict below.

Presentation: The game looks gorgeous and the animated graphic style works great for Disney Infinity. There are minimal cutscenes but as much is expected for such a broad horizon title. The toy like mechanics to all of the characters add a well defined aspect of adorability to the characters, and wraps up the presentation smoothly altogether.

Gameplay: The Gameplay in Infinity was much different than I anticipated, but left me coming back hour after hour, until I cleaned up every challenge and mission in the starter pack. Between collectibles, currency accumulation, graded challenges, and a exciting yet minimalist story, Disney Infinity racks up hours of play value, but leaves little replay value outside of the toy box.

Story: While each playset has it’s own gimmicky storyline full of corny lines and goofy adventures, the real story behind Disney Infinity is that you make your own story, with limitless materials from around the Disney Universe.

The Verdict: 8 Pizza Planet Trucks out of 10

Announcement: Skylanders SwapForce hits shelves in just over a week, so be sure to keep it locked at Toy Chaser for the best collector’s coverage, reviews, multiplayer madness, and contests!

One of Disney Infinity’s first variant figures hit the store shelves alongside the launch of the game, but only as a limited figure exclusive to Toys ‘R Us. This is a clear variant of the Piston Cup Champion, Lightning McQueen. I recommend you head to Toys ‘R Us as soon as possible if you want to get your hands on this figure.

Disney Infinity Launches

Image

Yesterday was the long anticipated launch date of Disney’s toy-to-game franchise, Disney Infinity. Infinity comes off of great influence from Activision’s Skylanders series, but is determined to make its own unique approach and mark into the recently popular toy-to-game experiences, as well as properly satisfy returning Disney fans.

It will be very interesting to see the rivalry unfold between Skylanders and Infinity, as well how the similarities and differences will compare between the two titles. Check back at the end of the week for my extensive Skylanders VS Infinity article, to see how the game pit against each other.

I’m very excited to spend some time with this game and see just what Disney has up their sleeve, so check back soon, and keep an eye out for my reader contests!

Toys ‘R Us CEO Hints at Disney Infinity Exclusivity

Infinity

In an interview with Family Gamer TV, Toys R’ Us CEO and Chairman, Jerry Storch, had some interesting things to say, and even hinted at the possibility of exclusive figures arriving at Toys R’ Us, just as they had done with the Skylanders Franchise. Andy Robertson with Family Gamer TV posed the question to Storch on how Toys R’ Us would handle the Infinity Franchise, and this was his response:

“Well it’s different and we are the toys authority at Toys R Us so anything big you know you are going to find, and in an oversize special way with plenty of exclusives and excitement.”

Storch seems to be implying that some exclusive Disney Infinity figures/starter packs will be headed to Toys R’ Us shelves with the launch. What do you think? Subscribe and leave a comment below!
