Summary: I overall like the game, however, I am having an issue where after a game is saved, when you go back to it later, all of the missions are gone or the game play is messed up in one way or another so that you cannot play a mission. I plan to do some research and see what I can find out. I do like the idea that each character has its own game and the other characters to add on are a reasonable price too.
Summary: It's hard to think of this as a single game since it offers so many options. But the options are also the limitations of the starter pack. The figures join the game when they are placed on the pad, and interact with the appropriate world. Since the game makes use of the options through what appears to be some sort of RFID technology it allows the game to be expanded. The most important factor is the level of fun.
Summary: I always loved the idea of Skylanders, the concept seemed fresh and origingal. However, I could never get into the game. There always seemed to something lacking in the gameplay. Then I saw the announcemet for Disney Infinity. I saw all the videos for Infiinity. I read the articles. Infinity from Disney, yea, that seemed like a fantastic idea. I finally broke down and purchased it for me and my family and we quickly grew in love with it.
Summary: I'm a gamer, and have a collectable hobby for vinyl figures. Disney Infinity fills both of these hobbies. Syndrome has been my favorite pixar villain, so it was a necessary purchase for me. The levels for Syndrome are fun and I feel like I had more than $12 worth of entertainment from this purchase. I'll be collecting more of these.
Summary: QUICK SUMMARY: A decent game, especially for children ages 6-10. Can become a bit repetitive, and the building/creation aspect is more limited than games like Little Big Planet. It is very heavy on the Disney theme, making you feel like you are really playing in the Disney/Pixar universe. The artistic direction can be a little "childish", with a lot of the NPCs/Enemies having a Little Tikes look to them. Production-wise, very good.
Summary: I have played hours with my 2 oldest daughters. The pro's is the game is fun, challenging, addicting, and has a lot of great different playable characters. The con's...well if you want to play 2 player in Monsters U, The Incredibles, and/or Pirates you do need to buy a second character that correlates with given title to team play. In other words I had to purchase Violet to play 2 player in The Incredibles, and Davy Jones for Pirates.
