DISNEY INFINITY 3.0

Disney Interactive



A long time ago, in a magic kingdom up, up and away...

Well, that would have worked if Disney had assimilated DC rather than Marvel. How selfish, ruining a perfectly great opening line for us!

They’ve been anything but selfish in the sheer scope of what’s offer in this third iteration of their bulgy-wulgy play centre Disney Infinity, however. First we had Disney and Pixar stuff. Then came the Marvel universe last year, and now, of course, Star Wars enters the fray – which we predicted within about one poofteenth of a second after hearing that George had sold the farm to Walt.

What does it all mean? More pop culture collisions than Andy Warhol in Funko’s factory. Imagine plopping the Hulk on your DI base, having him leap onto a TRON cycle and then smash his way through the Death Star. The possibilities for mixing and matching are mind-numbing – and exactly the sort of thing to make any kid (of any age) happier than a pig in sh...

It all takes place in the new, vastly improved and (finally) hub-infused ‘Toy Box’. Here you can play myriad prefab adventures – of which there’s enough content to keep anybody occupied for days - or get your Minecraft-like creativity on and build your own. Racing games, platformers, dungeon crawlers, beat-’em ups (with mucho finessed combat) and more are possible – and easily shared.

Oh yeah, Star Wars! The main DI3.0 set includes Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tanbo figures, and the ‘Twilight of the Republic’ playset. It’s also the most enjoyable Star Wars game in years. Platforming meets space flight interludes and a burning desire to buy the Yoda figure, separately sold which is.

Disney Infinity remains a money pit for the weak of wallet, but the figures really are stunning. With added Star Wars goodness and near endless creativity options, it really has become a Force to be reckoned with...

take me back to the start...
