Disney Infinity, more like Disney Limitee
on 2 February 2014
I bought this because my children already had Skylanders and I thought it would be similar. It's similar in the fact that you can change the character you are playing by swapping a small figure on a base. As a game on it's own, without comparing it to another it is a big rip off. When you buy it you get the CD with the game on, three figures: Mr Incredible, Sully and Captain Jack Sparrow you also get a small plastic model that allows you to go to three different worlds: The Incredibles, Monsters University and Pirates of the Carribean.
It's advertised as being a free play, called Disney Infinity because the possibilities are endless, they're not. There is a home world called the Toy Box, where two players can play, it's quite limited and mostly for collecting coins.
When you travel to the different worlds one player has to drop out, a source of endless frustration for my children. You can only use the characters belonging to that world whilst there, also frustrating to the children as they wanted to swap the characters and use all of them everywhere. I bought two of the boys a Playset Pack for their birthdays these allowed the children to travel to two more worlds: Toy Story and The Lone Rangers. Again they had to play single player while there and couldn't swap to characters from different films. The children also chose to spend their birthday and spending money on different characters such as Wreck it Ralph, Elsa and Jack Skellington. These come in between £10 and £20 each but don't have their own worlds and so can only be used in the Toy Box area where not much happens, Another source of frustration for my children, I've had them in tears because having spent their hard saved spending money (they only get 50p a week so they've had to save for months to amass that much) on a part of the game that is so limited in its use.
My advice keep your money spend it on something that your children will enjoy.
