Summary: The Wii version of Infiniti is not the same as other game systems. The features are scaled back, loading is slow, and is not fun to play. Skylanders is more fun. The pricing model is bad for the customer. You have to buy $35 sets just to play another world, then buy more characters. I miss the days of buying the video game and getting the whole game.
Buyers, be informed. I was duped by their prelaunch marketing..

Summary: I preordered the Disney Infinity for the Wii after EXTENSIVE research and pondering. I read everything I could find, put out by Disney and other reviewers as well. Everything seemed to be the same. It was a great game. And I was excited and we couldn't wait to open the box when it arrived. We started playing and then realized that.... there was no 2 player in the story mode. Wait, what? The box says it's 2-player.
Summary: This review contains my initial impressions after one week. (We purchased the game knowing that only one player could play the adventure portion. Even so, Disney and Wii deserve a hand slap for indicating that it is a 2-player game on the box.) The visuals, when compared to the sharp, high-definition screens selling the Infinity in stores, are a definite step down; however, they are comparable to other Wii games.
Don't like wii version NO 2 PLAYER mode in adventure

Summary: Boys played this at a friends house and had a blast on the x-box. Did not know that the wii version would not multi-player in adventure mode boys are not near as thrilled as they were with the x-box version. Also can not use players from one movie into another movie adventure on all versions. Definitely would not buy wii version!! Boys said they will keep it but not real thrilled about it.
Summary: It really is ridiculous that there is no co-op, or 2 player mode, in the playsets for the Wii version of Infinity. My son and I were excited to play Lone Ranger and Tonto in the playset, but I ended up watching him complete activities alone. We enjoyed playing in the toy box, but you have to spend hours playing alone to get toys from the playset. How could the developers get this so wrong? This is a major fail on their part.
Summary: Take note. The Wii version of this game only allows multiplayer in Toy Box mode. In the Play Set area where you complete adventures the Wii version only support single player. According to the Disney customer help website the PS3, Xbox, and Wii U versions support drop-in, multiplayer in both Toy Box and Play Set. The kids are pretty disappointed.
Summary: What a disappointment to find that the box states that it is a 2 player game but it is not for the wii The only time you can use 2 players is in the "Toy Box" my boys now fight over who is going to play because they want to play together. If i had known this info prior to purchasing I would have got it for a different platform.
Summary: We bought this thinking it would be similar to Skylanders and sadly it isn't. The toy box portion where you can build your own game is cool but the kids were easily frustrated by the views when constructing. It was hard to see where things lined up. My daughter was also disappointed in the fact that there are very few female characters. Sadly the game is not played with nearly as much as the Skylanders game.
