Toy Story 3 Review
Posted: 10 weeks ago.
Author: Andy Robertson.
Toy Story 3 includes both a story mode that follows the film and a Toy Box mode that's a free-roaming western town that can be explored and customised. You play as Woody, Buzz, and Jessie, each with different abilities that are needed to progress. As you complete the Story Mode levels you can go back and replay Challenge modes: Cube Destruction and Time Attack.
The two player split-screen co-operative mode is excellent for parents/carers and children to play together. The Toy Box mode is also great fun for younger players who can mess about and have fun at their own pace.
The DS, PlayStation 2 and PlayStation Portable versions don't have the Toy Box mode. The Wii, PC and Mac versions have more limited Toy Box features with fewer toys. The PlayStation 3 version of the game features exclusive content such as the ability to play as Emperor Zurg in Toy Box mode. It also offers PlayStation Move motion controls.

Some, like colour correction, work with games.
