Disney Infinity was a game that came out of nowhere when it first launched in 2013. To be fair, the Toys to Life genre had already been a big hit thanks to Skylanders, but Infinity took the basic formula and added a little magic. The game played to the emotions of kids from 5 to 55 by taking the properties that are known and loved throughout the world and handing over control to the players to create our own adventures. The final product, while having good core ideas, ended up falling short of the glory it could be. In 2014 Disney stepped up their game with the release of 2.0 alongside a full line up of Marvel figures. Disney Infinity 2.0 improved almost every area of the first game while adding some great new features like Flying and Skill Trees for player progression. Still, the world was lifeless, the missions were bland, and the combat was repetitive. This brings us to the release of Disney Infinity 3.0. Once again we get a new character line up, in the form of Star Wars. There are new combat mechanics, new flight mechanics, new skill trees, and a bunch of new Toy Box features. So is the third time a charm for Disney Infinity?
