Disney Infinity is the latest in Disney’s every growing library of video games.  This entry is a mashup of a bit of another toy/video game cross over,with some clever Disney characters and designs, sprinkled in with some Disney magic and player creativity.  The result is a fun family friendly game that child and parent can enjoy.

Disney Infinity is at its core a toy box.  This toy box has as few or as many pieces in it as you may like.  Starting with three characters and three play sets the fun begins.

Each play set revolved around a popular Disney film included in the starter set are: Pirates of the Caribbean, Monsters University and The Incredibles.  The characters included are Sully from Monsters University, Captain Jack from Pirates and Mr Incredible from The Incredibles.  With character and setting in place the player can pick to play in the play set.  Lets say you’d like to play Pirates.  Grab Captain Jack and put him on the Inifinity base along with your play set then hop into the game.  As Captain Jack you explore a location from the film, Tortuga.  While there Jack finds himself rescuing, battling and exploring the battle ravaged city.  As Sully you explore the campus of Monsters U find tons of hidden items and a plethora of fun missions to clean up the campus after a rival Fear Tech trash it.  Last but not least we have Mr Incredible battling his way through the city of Metroville, protecting its citizens from the Omnidroids.    All three play sets are a blast to play in and are wonderfully more fun with a second player in co-operative play mode.  The second player having the ability to drop in and out of the game as they please, prefect for a younger sibling or a busy parent.  The biggest drawback of the play sets though is only characters from the play set can be used in it.  Sorry no Captain Jack visits to Monsters University.  This can be a pain on the first playing of the game with siblings, but is easily remedied with the addition of additional characters available everywhere the game itself is sold.

These play sets are not main portion of the game.  The big open fun part of the game is the toy box.  This is an area that is customizable and is limited only by the player’s imagination, from flying dragons to zipping cars and shooting ray guns there is destined to be something to tinker with for hours on end, only to find something new the next time around.  Exploration is rewarded with unlocking new items, terrain, and objects to make your toy box truly unique.  The toy box is constantly expanding with new items and add ons, most recently the flying city from Bioshock Infinite and the flying dragon from Disney World.

As with all Disney entertainment the details are astonishing, this is not a slapped together product meant to simply be another way to push Disney licenses on kids.  This is a new way to play, with complete new play sets and toys.  The figures themselves are well made hard plastic and are the perfect size for little hands, from about 5 inches to 8 inches tall.  With the ever expanding and available properties of Disney the limits of this game really are your imagination.  Available now are play sets including Cars, Toy Story and Lone Ranger.  With upcoming sets including the new movie Frozen and Nightmare Before Christmas.

Disney Infinity is available on Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Wii U, Wii, and Nintendo 3DS.
