Positive Early Impressions of Disney Infinity 3.0
Disney Infinity 3.0 launched this weekend in North America, and if my local Best Buy was an indication, the positive reception from many media outlets are sending people to stores to plunk down hundreds of dollars. By 6 PM local time, the Disney Infinity shelves were nearly empty as fans flocked to the store to grab as much as they could. Good work Disney! Your game has received so much positive attention that people are forgetting the (minor) downfalls of 2.0 and jumping right into an other experience.
No, I’m not being sarcastic. The shelves at my local Best Buy were emptied, and I am surprised that people latched onto 3.0 so readily. At the same time, I’m not surprised. I follow at lot of Disney Infinity fans on Twitter and have been a long time listener / watcher of the Disney Infinity TV team – check them out for yourself here. I respect the opinion of these individuals because they have been honest with each and every game release, toy box release, and character release. I also don’t think Disney is lying to themselves and they should be happy with the early success of 3.0; Disney Infinity 2.0 was lacking in innovation after the very successful initial title, but with 3.0, it appears as if the developers have pulled out all the stops and delivered an excellent product. Attaching Star Wars to the packaging probably is not hurting either!
We hope to do a review of Disney Infinity 3.0 within the week. I made sure not to miss out on the extra characters and play sets (there will always be starter packs available). Stay tuned to Games Reviews for a comprehensive breakdown and review of Disney Infinity 3.0 starter set and additional play sets and figures in the near future. Until then, check out Disney Infinity TV; it wouldn’t suprise me if they sold you on a play set within the first few minutes of the first video you watch!
