Disney Infinity 2.0: Marvel Super Heroes features more than 20 new interactive figures from across the Marvel universe, original storylines penned by award-winning Marvel comic writer Brian Michael Bendis, and an all-new Toy Box mode that makes it easier for players to create and share their one-of-a-kind levels and mini-games with family and friends. In addition, all characters and power discs from last year’s release of Disney Infinity will be compatible with the Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes Toy Box.
Players can easily swap between characters and adventures or add items to their gameplay simply by swapping out what is on the base. Adventures are pure fun and simple. I caught myself saying “Wow!” the first time I soared through the sky with the Iron Man character. Each adventure comes with roughly five hours of story-driven gameplay, with challenges and collectible game unlocks providing a seemingly endless challenge. Mix that with different characters, each with their own unique powers and feel, and you’ll find yourself lost in their world.
For those avid fans that have already invested heavily in the original Disney Infinity, the good news is the older figures and accessories are all compatible with Disney Infinity 2.0, with the exception of the original play sets. Having pretty much all of the 1.0 characters, I was happy to be able to play the characters in the new toy box worlds including my favorite, Sorcerer Mickey.
In the new Toy Box Mode, players can now build rooms and theme them to their favorite characters using hundreds of furniture pieces and decorations based on iconic Disney and Marvel properties. In addition, players can create any type of game with incredible detail.
It’s a safe bet that kids who are fans of Disney, Marvel and video games will love the new characters and worlds in Disney Infinity 2.0. Older teens and adults will enjoy collecting the physical figures and Building new worlds in the Toy Box mode.
