Disney Infinity 3.o is the return of Disney’s take on playable figures. Last year’s 2.0 featured Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, The Avengers, and while the game featured some of our favorite super heroes, the story presented just fell short of what could’ve been an excellent game. 3.0 is here and features the biggest nerd franchise….ever, Star Wars. Disney has been quite busy throughout the year with the push on all things Star Wars as we prepare for the release of Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awakens. How well does Star Wars do for a video game like Disney Infinity?
This 3.0 play set is bundled with Star Wars: Twilight of the Republic campaign along side Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano as playable figures. Twilight of the Republic has to be the best Disney Infinity campaign I have enjoyed so far. The game never felt boring or dragged as Disney really took us to new and fresh environments in space and even on planets. The entire story took me about 5 hours to complete without doing all of the side missions and I honestly wish it could have been longer. Now while previous titles forced you to purchase additional characters, you were able to finish 3.0’s story with your stock selection.
Now what makes this title different from the others is the combat system. Which in my 2.0 Avengers review, I mentioned the characters not having enough of a battle arsenal and just repeating the same types of moves. Each character is unique and flows very nicely, thanks to the amazing folks at Ninja Theory who provided the combo based combat system. Anakin used the force, light saber his way through opponents, was in your face, and mad dashed around the area while Ahsoka was a bit more grounded and provided a different wielding style for her sabers. Other characters like Yoda and Han Solo provided new techniques to take down enemies. It made switching characters that much more fun especially when upgraded. This was by far the most fun I’ve had playing a Disney Infinity campaign, bravo Disney and Ninja Theory.
I would also like to quickly add that I played this game with my niece once again, whom I also played 2.0 with and she enjoyed it very much. The game was much more engaging for the both of us this time around and she fell in love with the scenery depicted.
The second portion of Disney Infinity lies within the Toy Box. I was underwhelmed with Toy Box 2.0 so I went in hoping for some new changes and experiences in Toy Box 3.0. While I never fully grasped the customization of creating your own worlds and activities in Toy Box, the new Toy Box Hub offered the best tutorial to get you started. Toy Box Hub took you step by step in guiding you to create massive attractions, but if you didn’t want to build you’re own, the community has uploaded tons of new creations that will keep the fun lasting hours. Toy Box is full of activities to do, and it unites every main crew together in a way I would never have thought of. Marvel with Star Wars, Star Wars and Disney characters, the fun goes on and on.
Disney Infinity 3.0 comes back strong with their Star Wars themed title. A strong and fun campaign, amazing combat system, and endless fun in Toy Box makes 3.0 a must have for Disney or Star Wars lovers. The Starter Pack does come with a bit less than what were used to but I highly recommend purchasing some extra characters to truly see what Disney Infinity 3.0 Star Wars has to offer.
- Enjoyable Star Wars campaign
- Toy Box is at its best
- Star Wars combat is hella fun!
- Short campaign
