4.0 out of 5 stars Play With Caution, November 6, 2011
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Disney Universe - Nintendo Wii (Video Game)
My nine year old son and I got this game and started playing it this weekend. We like it - it's fun, however playing the game frustrated us both at first. The game is best played if you understand that it's really a competitive game and not a cooperative game. It's too easy to accidentally kill the other players. The consequences of dying in the game aren't severe - you respawn almost immediately, only having lost some gold coins, but it's annoying if the person you kill is trying to accomplish something. And really, that's the point of the game - head to head annoyance, but in a cute way.

The game plays like an expansive world of minigames. The levels are small and linearly sectioned so each part seems like it's own little minigame. There are some puzzles, but most aren't too hard. There's a lot of button mashing. And then there are some little arcade-ish minigames interspersed.

The game is a cross between the Lego series and Little Big Planet, but beyond some Disney magic, it lacks the depth and interest of those. The music is fun, though, and the background art is beautiful. The collection of different costumes keeps us motivated in playing, and replaying.

We just need to take turns instead of trying to co-op. :)
