Family Fun with Disney Infinity: A Review
With a household of four, including two adults and two young kids, it can be very hard to find a game that satisfies everyone's various interests. Disney Infinity has been a game that my entire family can enjoy, from my youngest daughter all the way to my husband. Disney Infinity has been on practically every moment since we got it on Christmas Day.
Ease of Use
Disney Infinity is rated E for Everyone and that is absolutely true. I recommended 3 and up since kids need to understand what buttons to push on the controller. I've found both my girls (one of them being 4), as well as my 3-year-old nephew, have had no issues learning how to control their character while playing.
Disney Infinity has different modes to it, such as Story Mode and Toy Box mode. Story mode works best for multiplayer if you have more than one character from the same scene. Unfortunately, you can't take Sully to Mr. Incredible's board. So if you just have the starter kit, story mode at that point is single player only.
In Toy Box mode, you can play any character in single and multiplayer modes. Multiplayer works through the traditional split screen environment that we are used to. This is the mode my kids like to run around and play with together. They take their creativity beyond the game. They will build up a set in Toy Box mode and then run around playing out scenes they act out by running around and talking to each other. My husband likes to join in by adding things to the scene, such as enemies..
The Whole Package
So far, gameplay has been as flawless as can be expected. We have the Wii U version and have yet to come across any bugs. Graphics are great and load times are good. The game has truly been a joy to play with as a family and to watch my children play. It encourages imagination.
