Disney Infinity: 3.0 Edition Reviews
Disney Infinity 3.0 is the most polished, cohesive and enjoyable game in the series so far.
A potent nostalgic mix, but despite improved combat, older fans will likely be left bored.
A surprisingly strong effort at turning around the disappointment of last year's game, with the best Star Wars action this side of Battlefront.
The Toy Box has always been fun, but it's once again safe to venture back into the play sets
This is the best Infinity's structured play sets have ever been, but the Toy Box remains a wonderful, awe-inspiring and simultaneously overwhelming experience.
Disney Infinity 3.0 strives to do many things well
Combines cool toys, a fun video game and a world of opportunities for creative little minds
Disney Infinity suffers from some very short-term flaws (that interface, ugh!) and long-term challenges (the price of the game adds up quickly). If you're willing to grapple with those issues, however, you'll find an excellent, expansive, and remarkably well-crafted action game brimming with variety. Dabbling in nearly every genre imaginable in addition to its baseline sandbox mode, Infinity 3.0 has appeal for players both young and old—that is, whether you grew up with Luke Skywalker or just cut your teeth on Anakin and Ahsoka.
Disney Infinity 3.0 is the best of the series yet, with the excellent Twilight of the Republic starter set, and the general polish of the game overall is extremely refined with gameplay feeling much more responsive. The Toy Box feels much more like something you could actually build game content in now as well, with greater detail in the design-by-numbers features.
Just like its predecessor, Disney Infinity 3.0 feels a bit limited by the lack of variety in the Starter Pack, but the good news is that the studio is still on track with its core mission to create an action game for all ages. Twilight of the Republic is still a fun way to spend your time, and the Toy Box Mode should keep you busy even if you don't intend on buying any more pricey add-ons.
Any purchase you make in Disney Infinity will reward you in many ways, and between the Toy Boxes you build for yourself, the ones packed into the Hub, and those you download online, there's a crazy amount of levels. Few games today receive this much support throughout the year, and have such a dedicated community of people giving users more and more inventive creations to enjoy. If this year of Infinity is anything like the last two, 3.0 is something that kids of all ages will want to be a part of.
Disney Infinity 3.0 steers the series back on track after last year's small spanner in the works. It's a fun and enjoyable game that never outstays its welcome while also striving to innovate within the existing framework. To say 3.0 is without its own shortcoming would be a lie, however. Disney Interactive and its patchwork of studios have yet to forge something that feels truly cohesive and consistent throughout.
Alongside substantial improvement to the game there has been considerable effort to improve the value here with the lower price starter pack. Disney Infinity 3.0 will be hard to resist for fans of the film and families looking for this year's toy-to-life video-game investment.
While I wish the combat had undergone more dramatic changes, better combos do help it inch its way towards a more naturalistic feel, and the achievement of combining it with a flexible platforming engine makes any omissions pretty forgivable. The Inside Out and Toy Box Takeover sets are the standouts for me, and show a promising future for this series.
A step in the right direction, Disney Infinity 3.0 proves that the franchise still has legs, and isn't out of fresh ideas just yet.
Even with the high cost of entry for the full experience, the Star Wars based gameplay transcends what you usually expect from a Disney Infinity game, with the Toy Box continuing to be a hub for creativity to thrive in Disney Infinity 3.0.
The Disney Infinity 3.0 Starter Pack is a great introduction that will keep kids and kidults alike entertained for a long time.
The new Disney Infinity gives us less than ever before with the promise of more for those willing to pay for it
Disney Infinity 3.0 improves combat, adds space combat, and couples it with the most storied franchise in history to create a hit. The story is worth playing, and (most) of the vehicles are a great addition to the formula. With dozens of hours of content on top of the Toy Box's modes virtual sandbox, this year's iteration truly has the potential for infinite fun.
Disney Infinity 3.0 does much more than just rely on Star Wars to sell units, though. Enhancements to combat, toy-box tools and vehicle handling combine with the new space dog-fights, racing and more generous cross-over characters to deliver just what fans of the series have been asking for.
