10/24/13: Disney Infinity Must Have Holiday Gift

Our family loves anything Disney.  Disney Parks, Disney toys, Disney on Ice, and Disney Video Games.  We were lucky enough to receive the Disney Infinity Starter Pack and it is my next item on your "must have" Holiday List.  My son, daughter and husband have been playing it every day and love it.

We have had many Disney video games including Epic Mickey, Cars Race-O-Rama, Mater's Tall Tales game, Toy Story, Toy Story 2, and Just Dance: Disney Party.  As much as we have loved those games, this by far has been our families favorite.

I love that it incorporates many different beloved characters from Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios' most popular films.  The "Disney Infinity Base" activates original, story-driven adventures in the game worlds, also known as “Play Sets,” of "Monsters University," "Pirates of the Caribbean" "The Incredibles," “Cars” and “The Lone Ranger.”  The starter set comes with Captain Jack Sparrow, Sulley and Mr. Incredible.  

As you advance through each adventure you can collect gadgets, characters and upgrades to save to a virtual "Toy Box".  It allows you to create your own adventures.  
Characters can exist outside of their regular scenes and work together. 
 I find that Evan loves playing with Captain Jack Sparrow.  He loves boats and loves playing where he can steer the ship and shoot canons.  He is constantly asking me to come see the cool things he is doing in the game.
I love the arena area.  All of the backdrops and graphics are really amazing.  We have the game for PlayStation 3 and it looks phenomenal on our TV.
I love that the game gives you infinite possibilities in game play.  Especially as they expand Play Sets.
Love it!
Initially there will be 40 interactive figures including characters, Play Set pieces and power disks.  They will be releasing more over time.  With the Play Sets and figures it will allow you to evolve the game over time and get your child's favorites.  Here are all the characters.
Mr. Incredible is pretty fun to play with.  Evan likes his super strength.  
He also really enjoys playing the Monsters University scenes of the game.  Sulley can go around campus and pull pranks and try and scare people.
We love Cars!  The movies are amazing and I think my son owns every single Cars vehicle that was ever made.  We were extremely lucky to receive the Cars Play Set also with Lightning McQueen and Holly Shiftwell.
Evan got right to racing with his sister with this game.  He absolutely loves it.  I asked him to compare it to his other Cars video games and he said he loves this one more as he can do more.
He has his race face on.
He loves seeing additional functionality unlocked.
Radiator Springs is beautiful.
I often time seeing him playing with the figures also.
Infinite Possibilities, Infinite Fun!
It works on Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft, the PlayStation®3 system, Wii U™ system, Wii™ system, Nintendo 3DS™ hand-held system, on smart devices including tablets and mobile phones; and later in the year on PC.  The Starter Pack: is $74.99.  A Play Set Pack: $34.99 and Figures: $12.99.
This game is going to be a Hot Gift this holiday season and one you will want to buy early along with Play Sets and Figures.
