Excerpt: It’s hard to blame Disney Interactive for going the game-meets-toy route à la Skylanders . The fact of the matter is that there’s loads of money to be made there, and with properties as massively popular as Pirates of the Caribbean, Toy Story, and Cars, it’s obvious that Disney Interactive can get you to raid your wallet and bank account and get you to utter the old “take my money” adage.
Summary: With the success of Skylanders and Skylanders Giants , it was inevitable that someone would challenge the concept of marrying toys to videogames on such a large scale. So what better company than the juggernaut that is Disney, who was able to sink $100 million dollars into research and development for the project, titled Disney Infinity . But Disney Infinity isn't exactly the same as Skylanders beyond the concept of toys as DLC.
Conclusion: There are endless amounts of hours waiting for kids in Disney Infinity's worlds. If kids want to build worlds, boom. If kids want to play adventures, boom. If kids want to spend time with each other and share Toy Box creations, boom. There's so much in one package that younger gamers will absolutely have a blast with it. It literally has everything for them and it's a worry-free environment to play in. What more could you ask for as a parent from a single game?

Excerpt: I knew I would both like and love Disney Infinity the moment it was announced earlier this year. I am a massive to the point of obsessive Disney fan, and I loved both Skylanders games, so a combination of the two seemed like a win. Toss in the mention of Toy Story 3: The Game ’s stellar "Toybox Mode" and we’re on the verge of "Ricky’s Dream Game!" Disney Infinity delivers on nearly every front and I couldn’t be happier.

Excerpt: When Toy Story 3: the Video Game came out back in 2010, Avalanche Software probably didn't predict just how popular their secondary Toy Box mode would have become. Straying away from the events of the movie, Toy Box allowed players to venture into the wild west as Woody, Buzz or other Toy Story cast members, where they could complete quests, race on toy cars, customize the buildings, and much more.
Excerpt: When it was first announced a couple of months ago, Disney Infinity shook up the landscape, giving the company the opportunity to introduce a Skylanders -like play model featuring figurines and "power discs" for each of the respective Disney franchises, while at the same time opening up a "sandbox" where players could put together their own levels however they see fit. This past week, the company invited us back to get a closer look at one of the expansions it'll be...
Impressions: Disney Infinity looks like a toy-collecting, world-creating good time

Excerpt: I’m going to be completely honest here: I was pretty skeptical when I walked into the El Capitan Theatre in LA to check out the big Disney Infinity presentation. I didn’t exactly know what to expect, but I had heard plenty of rumors about a Skylanders -like IP with Disney characters. It certainly seemed like a cool idea, but no one knew for sure if that was going to be unveiled.
