Top Customer Reviews
People scoffed at Activision for charging so much for their starter pack but many gamers pointed out that the 3 characters that come with the set are more than just figures and the base is an integral part of game play so you really are getting more than just the game disc. What makes Disney Infinity great is the variety of ways to enjoy. I know for a fact there are hoards of collectors that literally want the figures just to have the figures; they're well made and they look cool.
Now a big complaint I've heard is how Disney is money grubbing and I really can't dismiss that since they did decide to drop the afore mentioned on-line games for this model. But the reality is, if your game isn't making a profit, it's not sustainable. My measure of money grubbing comes with the question, "do I need to buy these extras in order to complete the game?" Well, if you have 2 kids then yes, you will need to buy the Sidekicks Pack or Villains Pack if both your kids want to play together in all three starter lands. So $75 + $30 = $105. Do you need the power discs? Nope! The 4 round power discs only offers a percentage chance at a buff or bonus. You really don't need them to play the game.
Each game seems to have 4 to 5 connected areas where you do tasks to acquire more in-game items and toys for your toy box. So I think most people can escape paying over $100 for three relatively fun games that represent about 4 to 5 levels each. See, I'm comparing it to Skylanders that has 16 chapters in the main game. What's missing is you can't have characters from other lands interact in-game so no taking Capt. Jack with Sulley and heading off to Metro City to fight Syndrome. But that's where the toy box comes in. There you can collect game mechanics and make you're own gaming area. I think this is where Minecraft comes in.
The hexagon power discs are only usable in these areas and you can only use 3 at a time. The round power discs are only for character enhancements (you can only use 2 per character) and doubles can be used to increase your chances. However, doubles of the hexagon discs are a waste because you only need 1 to activate a theme or item. I saw that Toys-R-Us have scheduled trading sessions, but seriously, I don't think many people are going to need any of the 4 dupes of Sugar Rush background that I got. Once again, you don't need these discs to complete the game and the shared toy box has premade toy boxes that have many of the backgrounds such as Alice in Wonderland and Wreck-it-Ralph so I really do think you can keep the fun under $100.
I think the problem is we just want it all. With Skylanders my daughter had no problem picking out characters she wanted to play and characters she didn't want to play. With Infinity I just want it all, so be prepared to pay about $400 for wave 1. I bought a few random disc bags and after I got 4 Wreck-It-Ralph backgrounds I decided to look for an alternative. Now people have posted that if you're at a store with a display base, all you have to do is place the bag on the base and the disc information will appear for both discs. I'm not sure I feel comfortable doing that, but I know some employees at Best Buy could care less if you did. I personally just went and found a vendor on Amazon that offered the whole set of commons and a set of rares for a reasonable price. I also bought dupes of the round power discs because we are often playing as a pair and if we want to have heavy damage, we each put two sets of Bolt power discs under our figures for a damage boost.
I noticed one of Disney Infinity Devs posted a trick where you can level your characters to 15 by spinning them in a stunt buggy over a fan in your toy box. It blew my mind that a Dev would offer players a easy exploit to up your game. Oh why level your toons? You get a star for each level and stars are used to spin for more toys in the spin vault that can further enhance your toy box experience. If you have the starter pack that gives you 45 spins (15 stars per figure). I believe you need 150 spins to unlock the entire vault but please don't quote me on that. Stars are also achieved by in-game play so if you only have the starter pack you can get more stars in game....just not sure if you'll have enough to unlock it all. Well, if that's your goal, you would more like have more figures. I like Disney Infinity but I worry about the cost. It's not surprising they split this set up into 3 waves; no doubt to correspond with quarterly reports. But that's the reality, if you're not making money you have no business being a company.
I think if you have a fixed income hold off till Christmas when I believe vendors will start bringing down the price for wave 1. Unlike Skylanders, Disney Infinity doesn't seem to want to mess with people by making some figures rarer, just the power discs which aren't even necessary...only if you're a completionist like me. The one thing that does bothers me is when they show examples of in-game stuff, they often use characters from Wave 2 or I suspect Wave 3. It's a great marketing ploy, but I think that's what frustrates people who aren't familiar with the game. They see Wreck-It-Ralph and think, "Hey, that looks like fun", only to discover you'll need to wait till October to play him.
Oh and one cautionary note! I purchase the Villains pack from Best Buy and found that the Davy Jones character wasn't reading properly when you put more than 1 power disc on him. Best Buy was of course accommodating about the return, but I ended up having to get the entire 3 pack to replace the one faulty figure. So get this, at home now it's Randal and Syndrome that are faulty and Davy Jones is fine. Once again Best buy was cool and said just bring those back and you can take back the 2 I returned earlier that day. So my point is, there's clearly a glitch. I heard about issues with PS3, but I'm on XBOX and Davy Jones was the only figure experiencing this issue until I got that replacement. I did the pre-order for Woody and Jack Skellington, but I worry if I'll get any grief about returning online purchased items through Wal-Mart and Gamestop respectively. Finally shop around; Target had the Lone Ranger and Cars sets at half price and Amazon matched them so don't feel you have to buy it all now. Wait and look for deals. Anyhow, sorry for the length of this review, but hope it helps!
UPDATE: Okay for fun I went to Best Buy and tried the trick with the Power Disc bag and a static advertisement came up regarding what Power Discs do. I placed a character box and same deal, an advertisement about THAT particular figure so either I'm doing something wrong, or other places can in fact read the discs or they created a software update to avoid sneaky customer. So even though I've read in several places about the trick, I personally can not confirm it works. I did however try the easy quick leveling. By hopping onto the fan, I didn't need to use a stunt buggy and I was also able to use the hopping technique with my Cars 2 figures since they can't ride a stunt buggy. So anyhow, I can confirm that works.
One thing I forgot to mention is the detail of each of the lands. I didn't even see The Lone Ranger but I love the play set and attention to detail; right down to pop guns being used by heroes and villains instead of realistic guns and ammo. A nice touch when considering how many younger grade school kids will be playing this game. Another is the music. Since Disney owns everything, they pretty much got a majority of music for each land. The only gap I've noticed is Pirates of the Caribbean, but hey I can just play the soundtrack if I need to hear Hanz Zimmer's score that bad. It's also nice to hear they were able to get a lot of original cast members to reprise their roles or at least pretty good sound alikes for characters such as Capt. Jack. or Mrs. Incredible. Here and there you see little touches of designers developers or artists just going above and beyond to make this game fun and immersive.
My biggest gripe with the Disney Infinity concept is the lack of compatibility between all of the bases/packs/characters/etc. I get it, a company has to make money...that said, it would seem it wouldn't be THAT difficult to still make money by having one, universal base, and separate games/characters that are all cross-compatible with that one base. And if you're going to have each new release have a new base that only works with that release, let's make them LOOK different so you can tell them apart. But maybe that's just me.
The game works just like Skylanders, using a "power portal" that comes with the game to intigrate the figures into the game world. Each set of figures come with a level specific to their film. These are the usual fetch quests, destroy bad guys, find treasure, explore type of fare found in most young adult type games, but it is really fun to mess around in a classic Disney world with the characters.
I really love the figures that this game uses. They are all stylized to fit the same universe, so the characters never look out of place with each other. They are also very well detailed for the scale and quality. The game also features a "toy boy" mode along with the story modes for the different play sets. In toy box mode, you create your own world to explore from pieces you collect through out your adventures. In this world you can spawn enemies or build castles, change the texture patterns to include themes from the movies, or have a go at some challenges or even create your own.
There is a lot going for this game and that would be the one downside. When you are first dropped into the game it can be a little overwhelming with all the options infront of you but you get the hang of it and it really comes down to your creativity level to build some really fantastic worlds in the toy box.
This is a great two player game also, which can be played splitscreen, and online with 4 players.
I recommend this game for anyone who enjoys Disney or Skylanders.
