If you haven’t done so already, check out MiceChat.com for the review of the Disney Infinity Starter Pack Review written by me. Here’s a preview of what to expect. Give your thoughts on it here or on MiceChat!
While missions vary on difficulty, one thing that struck me was how much exploration was needed in order to complete various tasks. Each Play Set shared a similar plastic art style, showing that we’re playing with digital toys. The length of time to complete each Play Set varies depending on how involved you get. The main storyline takes roughly four and a half to five hours to complete, while the side missions add another couple hours to the experience. Within each world are toy capsules that can be collected and used in the Toy Box mode. For those who don’t really care about experiencing the Play Sets, this may be the added incentive to play them.
There are a few issues though, as audio seemed to repeat itself at random times and building textures seemed to become transparent sporadically. The camera seemed to cause an issue while in shooting missions. The camera wouldn’t rotate or would put you in odd angles causing a brief moment of loss when trying to aim at enemies. Climbing buildings would get frustrating as the controls would become sensitive or inoperable, either causing you to mistakenly jump off the building or not jump at all. Aside from these issues, the frequency in experiencing this wasn’t that bad and software updates should address these issues if Disney is paying attention to user comments (as I’m sure they are).
