A few years ago, we bought our kids Disney Infinity to play on our Wii. The reason we chose it, characters they recognize and easy for them to play and follow simple story lines in short bites. My six-year-old preferred to play in the Toy Box. The Toy Box in Infinity is a free play area where the toys you have collected from the storyline quests can be explored. There is no direction and the occasional bad guy to bop on the head.
This suited us perfectly as they were, and still are, learning how to use the controls. When we upgraded to an Xbox 360, we also got a secondhand copy of Infinity once again, allowing them to understand more complex controls.
About a month ago, we opened up Infinity 2.0 which is based around Marvel characters and adds a few other Disney Original characters. There is much more story game play in this version and it’s somewhat more complex with controls. We haven’t played an awful lot of it yet, but from what I have seen, it’s perfectly suited to my six-year-old’s ability and still not overly difficult for my three-year-old. I’m looking forward to having some time to play through it as well.
While doing some research after it was opened, Moo found Infinity 3.0 is due to release later this year. The characters this time: Star Wars. I have a feeling this will also appeal to my oldest, especially as the new movie is hyped more. He already has an interest in Star Wars so that will only grow.
From my research, there appears to be 3 playsets planned, one based for the original movie series, one for the prequel and another in line with the new film being released next year. I am already drowning in figures so I’m not sure we will buy another just yet. Only time will tell and we will see where the kids interests lie when it is released.
Have you or would you play Infinity?
