5.0 out of 5 stars Disney Infinity is brilliant,, 24 Aug 2013
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Disney Infinity Starter Pack (PS3) (Video Game)
Disney does Skylanders.
The concept of have a figure that comes to life on a portal was first introduced by Skylanders, Disney have cleverly introduced a version of their own using Disney Characters. If you played Skylanders then Infinity is pretty much the same, place a figure on the portal and that figure comes to life in the game.

My boy of 9 loved Skylanders, wasn't as keen on the second version called Giants as it was to easy, he was bursting with excitement to get his hands on Disney's Infinity.

The Starter pack has three figures Mr. Incredible, Jack Sparrow, and Sulley which are very detailed figures.
You have the Infinity base, Play Sets for Monsters University, Pirates of the Caribbean, and The Incredibles, which I tell you about in a bit. and one Disney Infinity Power Disc (Xbox 360/PS3/Nintendo 3DS/Wii/Wii U) which is a blind pack that unlocks different features in the game such as a new vehicle on toy etc.
The play sets open worlds, the pack comes with one which opens the Monsters University, Pirates of the Caribbean, and The Incredibles worlds, to open another you need to get your wallet out and buy another set of figures, we purchased the lone ranger pack, the figures are very detailed.
Game play is brilliant, you get to Battle the enemies, plenty of doable puzzles, overcome obstacles and complete a variety of other unique quests, the more you play the more features get unlocked.

They are a few packs to buy,Disney Infinity Sidekicks 3 Pack (Xbox 360/PS3/Nintendo Wii/Wii U/3DS), Disney Infinity Villains Figure Set - Davy Jones, Randy and Syndrome - Pre-Order, these do not come with a play set to open a new world, I guess more packs will follow. We purchased the Disney Infinity Lone Ranger Playset Pack (Xbox 360/PS3/Nintendo 3DS/Wii/Wii U) at the same time

Out favorite worlds are Disney Infinity Lone Ranger Playset Pack (Xbox 360/PS3/Nintendo 3DS/Wii/Wii U) and the Pirates, although the Monsters and Incredibles are really good.

This is going to probably knock Skylanders off the top spot, the thing that is great is you know the characters, with Skylanders they were always a mystery until you unlocked them.

Disney Infinity is brilliant, its going to cost to buy the play sets the power discs, but what doesn't.

Fantastic review, and I can't wait to get this. Much like your son, I wasn't much of a fanatic for Skylanders: Giants, but the original one was terrific. I've been looking forward to seeing some reviews and yours is the first so far. I'd also like to add that this game is by the same company that made Toy Story 3: The Video Game (Avalanche Developments), who made one of the best movie tie-in games that wasn't a sole cash-in this generation!

+1 voteup from me! ^^

Thank you, the more my son plays this game the better it gets, It seems to have no end of places and things to do, the one thing I do like is there is no Zombie's to kill, or people to stab which seems to be the general games requirement.

I haven't played Disney's Infinity, but I have to question your statement...

"This is going to probably knock Skylanders off the top spot, the thing that is great is you know the characters, with Skylanders they were always a mystery until you unlocked them."

Skylander's is much more well established, with three games, hundreds of toys and much more originality.

Skylander's offers regular characters, giants which are massive and swap-force characters which can be pulled apart and interchanged.

Each Skylander game offers a LONG, main storyline which any character can be played through compared to (and I may be wrong here) Disney Infinity which only offers confined story lines per play-set which may last an hour or two?

Skylander's has dozens of battle areanas, side challenges and missions to complete.

Skylander's is also the cheaper option because Disney Infinity asks you buy those small discs to unlock vehicles and weapons and I understand there are dozens of those? Disney Infinity also looks to lock away a lot more DLC then Skylander's does.

All the customization items in Skylander's are built into the game (i.e "hats") and there are only a small handful of extra zones which require "adventure packs" to unlock. 95% of the Skylander content is accessible with just using the provided start characters.

I could be wrong on all of that, but that was my understanding.

There both good, people will enjoy both, I think Disney has a potentially longer shelf life, Skylanders is great, my lad has them all but like most things he ties of them, with Disney you have new worlds to unlock like the Toy Story world which is due to be added to the game, Skylanders doesn't grow, you can change characters but not open new worlds

Hi, apart from the usual controller, is the game PS Move compatible?
