Disney Infinity (Series) Review
Posted: 5 months ago.
Author: Andy Robertson.
Like Skylanders, Lego Dimensions and Starlink, this game isn't being developed further. But can still be played and the figures can be found very cheaply second hand. You can still play the game, and create your own experiences in the Toy Box creator mode, but you can't go online or share your creations.
The game was released in waves over three years. Disney Infinity 1.0:
- Pirates of the Caribbean
- Monsters University
- The Incredibles
- The Lone Ranger
- Toy Story in Space
- The Avengers
- Guardians of the Galaxy
- Star Wars: Twilight of the Republic
- Star Wars: Rise Against the Empire
- Star Wars: The Force Awakens
- Inside Out
- Finding Dory
- Marvel Battlegrounds
Rating: PEGI 7+, ESRB EVERYONE 10+
Release Date: 18/08/2013
Players: You can play with 2 players in the same room, but you can’t play it online. Split-screen competitive play in the main.
The game grants access to content and character by incentivising players to purchase physical toy figures. The toys unlock the characters to play in the game. The translucent PlaySet pieces unlock a new adventure in the game and are often packed in with two related figures. If you have 1.0 or 2.0 version of the game you need to check compatibility as newer figures and PlaySet pieces may not work.
The Starter Packs include everything you need to complete its adventures with two players. The figures and PlaySets offer substantial additional (and optional) content. The starte packs can be purchased as follows:

- Disney Infinity 3.0: Play Without Limits (Digital Purchase on Xbox One): Gets you the digital game but needs you to purchase the Disney Infinity Base seperately (or own it from a previous game). You can then use figrues to unlock the content.
