Many of you may know that I was an extremely avid collector of Disney Infinity 1. Whilst I didn’t spend an obscenely huge amount playing with the Toy Box or collecting everything in the play sets, I managed to buy everything that there was to buy.
When Disney Infinity 2.0 was announced, I wasn’t hugely excited initially due to the fact that I’m not the biggest Marvel fan. However, once some of my favourite Disney classics were announced anticipation started to build. Thankfully, last week I got to sit down with Avalanche and Disney Infinity Producer, John Day. I spent an hour and a half for the second successive year watching John walk me through all the interesting facets of Disney Infinity. Once I quickly realised just how improved the gameplay was, it instantly drew me back in.
Initially he spent some time showing me through the Guardians of the Galaxy play set. The first thing that I noticed was just how beautiful the game looked on PS4. The first game was always vibrant but lacked that certain level of Disney polish in the graphics department. I’m happy to report that Disney Infinity 2 looks as good as you’d expect from the latest Disney film.
?Not only do the in-game graphics seem to have been improved, it’s apparent to me that the art department have also aimed to put a lot more detail in to the figures themselves. I never felt that the figures were cheap-looking or a bad representation of their actual characters, but now they seem to have an extra level of detail that will draw Disney collectors in like never before.
