What Makes The Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes Video Game Starter Pack 2.0 a Smart Buy?
Disney originally released an Infinity starter pack with characters from Monsters University, Pirates of the Caribbean and The Incredibles. That original Infinity interactive playset was so popular, they have released this second edition. Jack Sparrow, Sulley and Mr. Incredible from that first Infinity kit are compatible with this system, but only on the 2.0 base.
Here is how it works. When your child places one of the 3 included Marvel superheroes on the Infinity playing surface, that character appears on your TV display through your gaming system. This allows for interactive story creation with your children controlling their favorite Marvel characters.
Thor, Iron Man and Black Widow Marvel superhero characters are included. However, extra characters can be purchased. This allows your children to mix and match superheroes and movie characters, inventing whatever virtual universe their imagination can create.
Buyers of the original Disney Infinity system have noted that version 2.0 is a big upgrade in software. Your children have more customizing abilities with the characters. For instance, focusing on the different flight capabilities for Iron Man is a feature your kids will love.
You just set one of the characters onto the Infinity base and presto, he is on your TV screen. There are different pre-loaded environments on which your children can virtually control superheroes and movie characters. And with the ability to mix and match your children’s favorite heroes, there is really no limit to the game play scenarios which can be created.
Disney and Marvel collectors have definitely got to get their hands on the Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes Video Game Starter Pack 2.0. It also makes a smart purchase for parents of young Disney and Marvel fans. Compatible with Xbox 360, PS3, PS2, Xbox One and Wii U and available in a standard or collectors edition, this interactive video game is sure to be a hit with your kids.
