Are you ready for the next edition of the famed game, Disney Infinity? We spent the last several days digging into the game, writing notes, cataloging power discs and even have a few tips we wanted to pass along to you. Read along to learn about the Marvel Play Sets, the Disney Originals Toy Box and everything you need to get started in Disney Infinity 2.0.
HOW DOES IT WORK?Like the first Disney Infinity, the 2.0 edition combines the game disc for your console (PS3, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, WiiU) along with the beautifully designed figures which, when placed on the included Disney Infinity 2.0 base, appear in the game. Be sure to check out this video uploaded to the official Disney Infinity YouTube channel for a great overview of how the game works.
DISNEY INFINITY 2.0 OVERALL REVIEWThe enhancements to Disney Infinity 2.0 are seen, felt and experienced from the moment you get started. Most notable is the addition of the skill tree which can be individually built for each character. Like before, as you find capsules and beat missions, your character gains experience points and are "leveled up". As the characters achieve a higher level you will be able to assign individual skills in the skill tree which enhance that character's in-game ability. The reason I find this to be the most significant enhancement in the game is that not only does it give you an incentive to level up your character, but you can also build out your team to be balanced - using the best character for the mission at that time. For instance, while you may choose to build Thor's skill tree to make him extremely powerful, you could choose to build Captain America to have super speed and extra health.

Other areas which really caught my attention when playing were:
- The time is takes characters and power discs to appear in the game after you've placed them on the base is about two-times as fast as before. Although I never really complained about it before, it's a great addition to the game as you'll be switching characters a lot more often with the skill tree.
