Disney Infinity 3.0: The Force Awakens: PS4 Review
Released by Disney
Closing following the highly secretive plot of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the Disney Infinity set is likely to be a family favourite this Christmas with kids both young and old.
You will of course need the original Infinity kit to get this started, but given that, the game itself and its lovely styled figures are worth investing in and in no way constitute a quick cash in on the franchise.
Playing through the game will see you taking on the majority of the film's key moments (it's still too early for spoilers, so nothing to see here, move along) and it all kicks off on Jakku. You get to play as Rey or Finn and it's clear these characters are here to stay in the series, with chances to level up fairly quickly and easily on hand.
With slight variations on what you've experienced before in play sets, it's clear that this latest is trying its best to ensure you don't feel it's a rushed job. It's certainly brief, but given that you get to pilot X-Wings and the Falcon as well as laying into Stormtroopers on Jakku, this is definitely aiming to give you a flavour of the film rather than the full course, but the youngsters the set is aimed at will not care.
Three hub areas provide extra missions as well so even if the main storyline has brevity, there's still the chance to get involved in side bits and to keep minds and fingers occupied.
Ultimately, Disney Infinity 3.0: The Force Awakens is a nice solid tie- in.
It does what it needs to, is respectful of its Force material and will keep the kids happy during the summer months. There are signs these sets need to do something a little more radical in future, but not veering too far from their MO and keeping the charm dialled up to 11, Disney Infinity's latest foray into a galaxy far, far away shows this series is rightly here to stay.
