Disney Infinity looks like a toy-collecting, world-creating good time - GameZone Preview

GameZone's David Sanchez writes, "I was pretty skeptical when I walked into the El Capitan Theatre in LA to check out the big Disney Infinity presentation. I didn’t know what to expect, but I had heard plenty of rumors about a Skylanders-like IP with Disney characters. It seemed like a cool idea, but no one knew for sure if that was going to be unveiled. Epic Mickey 2 left a bitter taste in my mouth, and that's exactly the reason I was so skeptical about this whole thing. After Disney Interactive’s big presentation, however, I was glad to walk out of the theatre completely stoked for what seems to be an awesome project." (3DS, Disney Infinity, PS3, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360)

I was looking forward to this game until they revealed that it would be a toy collecting game ala Skylanders. I know that it's ignorant of me to dismiss a game just because of one reason, but I'm not about to drop $60 on a video game, just to have to pay for any character I want to play as. At $60, I expect enough content to suffice as a full video game.

EDIT: If this game (and Skylanders, for that matter) was a free download, with every character costing money themselves, that would make more sense. I wouldn't mind getting Skylanders for free and then $30 for three characters and the portal. Same with Disney Infinity.

Bad for parents, endless fun for children in collecting toys.

That's why Skylanders sells a lot.

That's kind of a cynical way to look at it though because those separate characters have their benefits. You keep your save in the figure, not the game, so you can take it to your friend's place and play it on their system if he owns a PS3 and you own a 360. I don't know, I find that feature to be really convenient.

Plus, at the very least you can keep the figures as little collectibles.

@ForgottenProphecy

That's a good point. I would argue that playing as all the different characters in DI or Skylanders is not as rewarding as it is in a Smash Bros. game, but having to buy each character for those prices is certainly a viable complaint.

I wouldn't want to own the entire set either way lol. Just a small handful of characters.

True, but the prices are still steep. Imagine playing Super Smash Bros Brawl, but having to buy the toys to play as each character. Each character (besides the obvious clones) brings their own thing to the table, and it's not the full experience without them all.

Like I said, for $60, I should get a full game. Sure each character can have save data on it, but there aren't really many situations where that comes in handy. The one you mentioned is probably the only one.

sky landers never really interested me but this does, maybe its the graphics style or that it's Disney characters.

either way I'm interested.
