The Play Sets let players explore, mess around in mini-games and take on missions set by an abundance of wonderfully recreated Disney characters. The missions are bread-and-butter affairs - climb some platforms, bash these things x number of times, that sort of thing. It’s breezy, accessible, depth-free stuff not far removed from the popular Lego games, but for older Disney fans it can be repetitive. On the plus side there are loads of neat things to find, such as the create-a-monster hut on the Monster University campus.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/_bmUploads_2013-07-17_620_ToyBoxIncredibles6.png?1378227861" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Chess.png?1378227861" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Toy Box </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>If the Play Sets are a bit shallow for older players, the Toy Box is a much more tempting offer. This mode lets the imagination run riot by allowing players to mix up elements from different Disney franchises and use a wide range of items - from palm trees to character-slapping fly swatters - to mould virtual playgrounds of their own design that can then be shared with friends.</p> <p>What’s more, pulling out the objects you want to use and sticking them into the grid-like structure of the world is easy peasy.

That does feel restrictive early on, especially given that the Play Set missions are less compelling than the chance to mess around in Toy Box mode.

The £50-odd starter pack gives you one Play Set, three figures and one power disc that lets players access a bunch of extra items and features. Want another power disc? That’ll be £3. Want another figurine? That starts at £12 per figure going up to £25 for a pack of three. And another Play Set to play will cost you £30. So while <em>Infinity</em> offers the prospect of having always something new to play with, it’s going to do serious damage to your bank balance – especially if your kids have honed their pester powers to ninja-like levels.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Cars_1b.jpg?1378227861" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/_bmUploads_2013-07-30_677_POC___Base_w_discs.jpg?1378227861" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-3"> <div class="field-label">Image #3:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_3" width="1200" height="900" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Francesco_1.jpg?1378227861" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-5"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Verdict </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><em>Disney Infinity</em> takes the raw figurine-collecting appeal of <em>Skylanders</em> and enhances it with a wonderfully accessible world-creation tool capable of enchanting young and old(er) alike.
