Seems like a pretty good game so far - the skill trees are interesting, combat is enjoyable, and boss fights can be challenging.
The toy box seems like it has a lot of possibilities if you're into that.
Big con - at least when playing the Play Set, the camera angle/behavior is bad. My son loves to play with his dad, and the only option seems to be vertical split screen, with zoom being in pretty close. I had some motion sickness problems. Add the fact that the camera "follow" leaves you shooting your ranged weapons at what you *hope* is an enemy, (because there is no camera option to play in true 3rd person and see in the direction your characters is seeing) and you get a pretty sub-par gaming experience.
Skylanders has one approach where you have to be on the same screen together at all times, which creates its own set of problems. Lego games seem to have gotten it right. Share a screen when close enough, split the screen when not. I hope they patch the game at a later date to allow more camera options, at least follow, but I highly doubt that will happen.
It isn't that the game is too complex (it's not), it's that it is not really a game at all. It is a sandbox program that revolves around small, user created content with basic mechanics. Even the material provided by the company itself is not a game, but an expansion pack. Nothing about it is complete. There is an ubiquitous push toward locking content out unless you own certain figures, power discs and play sets or toy boxes. You pay $70 (or $30 on Amazon) and get the beginning of a money draining relationship. And I thought IAPs were bad on tablets!
In all, I fault marketing. It's embarrassing when consumers have to go to secondary and tertiary sources to figure out a product. Sure, it's successful, because it does well what it does. But parents might have a very difficult job figuring out what the difference between a play set, starter pack, and toy box is. Heck, some starter packs are play sets, and some starter packs are just toy boxes; and you can have play sets that need the base game (which is included in the starter pack), and some sets look like play sets but are really just toy boxes (or even just figures: Aladdin and Jasmine for instance). And the tutorials are a little advanced for a younger audience.
It has been posted elsewhere, but here are some basics you might need to know:
You need the base game before you can do anything. This base game comes in a:
1. Starter Pack of your choice (as of now: Standard, Collector, Toybox). Likely you should choose Standard. Toybox has no narrative concept and only has the ability to use the world editor program.
2. Toy box: a world editor program where you can build many different things: castles, space stations, Agrabah, African Safari, recreate Fantasia. Not only can you build a world from scratch, but it has little builder characters whom you plop down and they create the theme for you. Then you can add programming to make it operate in many different ways. Furthermore, you can play your many characters in this world you created. Also, you can play in other people's worlds that have been made public. Some of these public worlds, are rather cool.
N.B. Most of the items you need to create worlds have to be unlocked. Things like buildings, trees etc. They are unlocked by earning blue shards for defeating enemies, or little capsules people can place in a creation/playset. (If you know what you're doing, you can "farm" these within a few hours, it's not a big deal.)
3. Play Sets: these are standalone adventures outside of the toybox editor. However, they are really just an advanced toybox with a set theme and narratives. They are created by the Infinity company have a lot more polish than typical toybox mode. They also contain cutscenes for a cinematic feel. They are short. I would compare them to expansion packs for typical games.
4. Power discs: these do a lot of things. On the physical Infinity tray that plugs into your console, you can place 2 figures and one playset piece. Under the two figures and playset piece you may place 2 power discs each (six total? Unless I'm mistaken about the numbers here). These power discs can change clothing, themes, give cool weapons, give cool objects etc. They change the "flavor" of the toybox you are using. Some discs are actually a toybox already created. It's like a complex toybox straight from the developers. Nowhere near as nice as a playset though, be forewarned.
Having done my research, 2.0 is a big step up from 1.0, at least in toy box mode. It facilitates basic programming staples such as triggers, events, logic pathing and the like. It makes these things easily accessible too, even to a child. But it doesn't explain it well. In fact it's hard to even find the bloody tutorial on it, since they put it in a toybox world with 10-15 little characters who run about 50 tutorials.
While the toybox is a major improvement, the playset side is majorly lopsided. You'd better enjoy comic heroes, and Marvel heroes at that. I don't know who thought it'd be a good idea to make not just the bulk of your playsets only one genre, but in fact ALL of them are of one genre. What do you like more? Spider man? Avengers? (honestly, I'm getting real sick of Avengers, Avengers, Avengers) or Guardians of the Galaxy?
I did enjoy the Guardians of the Galaxy figures. They look awesome and play well in game too.
But Infinity 1.0 is amazing for playsets. Even the 1.0 starter pack has 3 playsets in the base game... yes... you heard that right 3 in the base game. One is superheroes (Incredibles), then Pirates of Carribean and Monsters Inc(or is it University?). Plus, they have a plethora of diverse themes: cowboy, Toy Story, Cars. My daughter was so confused as to why she couldn't do already scripted games with Elsa and Rapunzel, and why Jasmine didn't have her own playset, when the packaging looks just like a play set! Sure, there's user-created content. But user-created content generally lacks the polish of an already created set. How in the heck does Cars get a playset, or Lone Ranger, when Frozen only gets a few power discs? There is remarkably a lack of "girl" themes, as my daughter of five points out to me a lot.
It's one of those things. I think it's a cluster-mess of a "game" while my son thinks it's the best thing ever. You see that in a lot of reviews. Parents who are "What is this and why do you like it so much?", and their kids who can't stop talking about it and playing it. It's for kids, adults may dabble, but they will leave mostly unsatisfied... and broke... can't forget that either.
