Disney Infinity: Toy Story in Space Review: Ride ‘em, Space Cowboy
17 December 2013
Excerpt: It’s no secret that the Toy Story franchise is pretty rad, and it’s easily one of the greatest things to come from Disney and Pixar. If you don’t think so, it’s very likely that you don’t have a heart, because we were all toy-loving kids at some point. That’s why Toy Story is a no-brainer as far as Disney Infinity is concerned, and it’s a perfect fit for Disney Interactive’s massive toy-collecting platform.
Summary: Disney Infinity is an attempt to mash up Skylanders and Little Big Planet but it ends up being far more limiting than either of those games. Toy Box is cute, but unlocking items for it is far too random and aside from Disney branding, there isn’t a lot there to work with unless you want to put dozens of hours in to collecting stars. The figures actually don’t add anything to the game, except to act as locked on disc content.
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: Disney games such as Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse, Aladdin, and the Kingdom Hearts series have one thing in common… they all have magic.

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.
Review: Big Sky Infinity fails to live up to its wide open potential

Excerpt: The PlayStation Vita already has its fair share of commendable shooters to choose from, including the old classic Super Stardust HD and the enjoyable (if tough as nails) Sine Mora, which just came out a few weeks back. Now we have Big Sky Infinity, the latest from VooFoo Studios, which tries to take the context of a twin-stick shooter and mix it up with diverse settings that change each time you play through the game.
