Following the Success of ‘Disney Infinity’, Disney Interactive has released ‘Disney Infinity 2.0: Marvel Superheroes Edition & Disney Infinity: Disney Originals’. This game is one of the best games to come out of Disney in a while, and, like the first one, the possibilities are, well…infinite!
This game is mainly Marvel-based. The starter pack for Marvel Superheroes Edition comes with three figures: ‘Iron Man’, ‘Thor’, and ‘Black Widow’. It also includes ‘The Avengers’ play set and two power discs to be used in the Toy Box. This was the play set I was most looking forward to. However, this is also the most disappointing one so far. The gameplay gets boring as the fights are repetitive. The characters though are fantastic! The characters that you can play as are ‘Iron Man’, ‘Captain America’, ‘Thor’, ‘Hulk’, ‘Black Widow’, and ‘Hawkeye’. However, ‘The Falcon’, ‘Nick Fury’, and ‘Loki’ are also ‘Avengers’ characters that are available for the game, but for the Toy Box. Each character has a different power, and they are all worth owning.
In ‘The Avengers’ play set, Loki has caused a problem with Ice…creatures. That’s the first thing that disappointed me. First, there are many, many storylines they could have used that could have created a much better Play Set. Second, they could have tied the Play Set into ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron’ or even ‘The Avengers: Infinity War’, which would have made the fights much more intense, and even introduce a bit of variety. Rating: 4/10.
Separate from the ‘Disney Infinity 2.0: Marvel Superheroes Edition’ starter pack is a whole bunch of characters as well as a couple of play sets. The first that I will focus on is ‘Spider-Man’.Spider-Man is much more fun than I thought it would be. The characters of the play set are ‘Spider-Man’, ‘Venom’, ‘Nick Fury’ (Out Of All Play Sets?), and ‘Iron Fist’. In addition, ‘The Green Goblin’ will be available for the Toy Box soon. In the ‘Spider-Man’ play set, there are many tasks that, even though are a little bit repetitive, are still fun and challenging. I’ve gotten stuck quite a few times in this play set. One thing that I think they need to improve is the directions that they give. In this play set, you pretty much have no idea what to do at some points and that can delay your gameplay. Rating: 7/10.
The final play set that is available as of now is, my personal favorite, ‘The Guardians of the Galaxy’ play set. Characters available for this set include: ‘Star Lord’, ‘Gamora’, ‘Groot’, ‘Rocket’, and ‘Drax’. Available for the Toy Box are ‘Ronan’ and ‘Yondu’ coming out soon.
In The ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ play set, there are many galactic fights that are not repetitive, one of the things that sets this play set apart from the rest, and the characters are great. The story makes sense and the play set is just a lot of fun. Rating: 9/10.
This week, ‘Wave 2’ of the characters for Disney Infinity 2 came out. This series was called ‘Disney Infinity: Disney Originals’ and includes many classic Disney characters that I’ve been wanting to get my hands on for quite some time.
They are all really fun characters to play as and I recommend getting whichever characters are your favorite. The production value of all of them is great! The Toy Box is one of Disney Infinity’s greatest features, and I will be going in-depth on it on a future post in the coming weeks.
One thing that’s important to know is that the Figures and Power Discs from Disney Infinity are also compatible with Disney Infinity 2. Not the other way around, however. Which makes sense, as they want people to get the newer edition. However, Play Sets from the previous game are not compatible with Disney Infinity 2, so if you want to play the Disney Infinity play sets, you will have to have the original game. Looking ahead, there are rumors that in 2015, Disney Infinity 3.0: Star Wars will be released along with MANY Disney characters such as Goofy. That is not officially confirmed however, but whenever we find out what the plans for the future are, we will be sure to let you know!
Overall, Disney Infinity 2 brings many great opportunities to play as your favorite Marvel and Disney characters and gives you the chance to let your imagination run wild. I definitely recommend picking up the game whenever you get the chance. It would even make an amazing Christmas present for any Disney or Marvel fan!
