Even if this is the best game in the world, I'm not buying it. These games which prey on pester-power so that people spend a small fortune on a game - for practically worthless add-on content - really annoy me. Makes me imagine corporate fat cats thinking of the best way to squeeze money out of people who don't know better, pretty shameful if you ask me.

Disney Infinity confirmed for Wii U and Wii - first trailer

Postby aidanpowers1 » 15 Jan 2013, 22:18

I absolutely can't wait to play this. I think Disney have struck gold with this. Skylanders is a fun game but I don't really feel bothered about getting new characters but by Disney having characters people know and love I'm sure a lot more people will buy extra figures.

This pushes me towards buying a Wii U even more! I'm going to wait for Zelda U and maybe MarioKart, and when I do get a U, I'm definitely getting this game! Looks fantastic for something based on the Pixar films and the like.

I see Perry the Platypus in that group shot. Sold.
Trouble is, the people who complain about these extra mini-figures probably buy figures anyway; my shelves are awash with Marios, a Wolverine bobblehead and a Twilight Sparkle i'm particularly fond of. These are collectable, we're cool with them. Figures that are required for a game, however, we dislike because we are being made to buy them, or we're disallowed content. It's a bit like day-one DLC. We sorta feel cheated.
Good to see what could be considered Pixar's 'Golden Oldies' getting a show-in, though. Continuity Cavalcade games are always fun, if not just because you can go 'Oh, it's that guy!' and feel about twelve again.

I hope it's cheaper than skylanders.

I told myself I'd get Skylanders when the price dropped to a reasonable level. Still been sold for full price even with the sequel around.

Urgh! Looks really good, but it's clearly going to cost a bomb like Skylanders does.

Am I the only one that doesn't think that this looks interesting at all? I mean, I'm a fan of Disney's films and animation and all, but the behind all the bright colours it just looks a bit lifeless if you ask me. Besides, what happens when you play the initial three Incredibles, Pirates of the Caribbean and Monsters University levels. Is that it?
People always complain about expensive downloadable content that's already on the game disc or day one downloadable content - isn't that just what these collectible figures are? Physical DLC? No, thank you.

Damn. This looks good but I worry about falling into the trap that Skylanders players are in. So much money...oh so much.

Also, this is the perfect opportunity to please the fans. How about some classic from Disney Afternoon like Launchpad and Darkwing Duck (wishful thinking though...).

I think that this looks amazing. I am not normally worried about games with a lot of add-on content like this but from experience Disney merchandise retains quite alot of value anyway. The interactive and changeable characters and game worlds looks fantastic and the icing on the cake is the sight of Perry the Platypus from the superb Phineas & Ferb at 01.51 of the video.

This is 100 times more interesting than Skylanders,because of the wide range of beloved Disney characters.

While the pay to play really put me of the Skylanders sequel,but this is enough to tempt me to go for it,I just hope it isn't as expensive as Skylanders,but what ever happens this will me a massive money maker for Disney.

Even though I'm personally not that fussed about Infinity, I think that there's more to the game than you're interpreting. I don't think it's just basic level structures, but rather an open toy box where you can create anything from the world of Disney. If you've played or heard about the Toy Story 3 game, then I think it's like that, mixed with the figures of Skylanders, but I don't think it'll play at all like Skylanders. At least that's the impression I'm getting. Besides, it's from the same developersas the Toy Story 3 game.

Yeah, I've not played Toy Story 3, so I wouldn't know. Also, I've never really got the point of that kind of sand box game. I don't even like the level creation mode in games. For me it's like building IKEA flat-pack furnature without the instructions.

I wonder, will this game have Star Wars figures as well?
Also, the NFC reader that you put the figures on doesn't look particularly interesting. I know that it's probably not important, but the skylanders one was all decorated and themed. Oh well. I might get it for 3ds all the same.

Me too, I made a sarcastic comment, expecting everyone else to think it was awful, I was pretty surprised when everyone genuinely said it looked good.

Just seems like a Skylanders clone. It even looks like it runs in the same game engine as skylanders, even without the figure gimmick and Skylanders was a genuinely bad game to start. I don't even have the game, I've played it for 15 minutes in my cousins house, but I didn't enjoy a second of it. Running around linear levels, fighting enemies and solving puzzles aimed to be easy enough for 5-year-olds just isn't fun. I had heard people saying it was a good game let down by the expensive figures, but even without the figures, it was an awful game. Figures just made it worse.

Well that got off-topic a little, but anyway, I can't imagine a Skylanders clone to ever be a good game. Level editor looks alright and I have nothing against Disney, but as for the rest of the game, just no. Gameplay footage looked like nothing more than another average, budget platformer.

Also, expensive figures gimmick designed to make children spend every penny they have on DLC characters.
