Great game to play with your kids,
This review is from: Disney Universe - Nintendo Wii (Video Game)
I am not sure about others, but I am always looking for good games to play with my kid. They have to be easy, but not too easy. Disney U game play very similar to Lego (although it is not as good as the Lego games - your kids will probably like it more because you get to be in the actual Disney/Pixar worlds).
Up to 4 people can play simultaneously which is great for inviting friends and so on.
Bad things about the game I don't like (and these are mistakes Lego didn't make by the way, so I am kind of dumbfounded by some of them).
1. it is possible to hurt and kill your coplayers. The nature of the gameplay - a bunch of little bad guys try to jump you all the time - and the 4 players going at once, make it very easy to hurt friends. Among kids, this will tick them off.
2. As far as I can tell, you can't drop in and out of the game at will - in fact, the level needs to paused entirely or quit entirely. so if one kid needs to go to the bathroom (and they will since the levels are long) it can be a problem.
3. the gameplay is quite repetitive. I am not sure if this will irritate anyone other than adults. But basically, there are 3 levels of 3 stages with a boss at the end of each world.
4. I have a feeling you are going to finish it in record time. Unless there is a lot of hidden worlds, and I doubt it, you can blow through this game is a couple of weeks at an hour a day. If I had to guess, it's about 1/4th the length of the Lego games.

Sorry to tell you this, but in all of the Lego games you could kill your partner. They would shatter like legos and then get rebuilt.

Sorry you are right. But there is a difference -- in the Lego games you pretty much need to be trying to kill your partner. In Disney U you will basically kill your partner by accident several times per level even if you are actively trying not to kill your partner.
