Disney Infinity 2 vs Skylanders Trap Team 2

 

 

Cordova, TN; November 3, in the year of our Lord 2014--Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is keeping their word on continuing to analyze the Skylanders franchise versus the Disney Infinity franchise. At this point in time we have played through and completely reviewed both Disney Infinity 2.0, and Skylanders Trap Team. There have been spirited debates about the pros and cons of both franchises. Will Disney Infinity 2.0 remain at the top of the Family Friendly Gaming toy/video game food chain? Will Skylanders Trap Team capture the title? Read on, friends, read on.

There was all kinds of excitement over Disney Infinity 2.0 coming out of E3 2014. Unfortunately some of the things we were told did not come to pass. The one improvement in Disney Infinity 2.0 is the continuous storyline. We know why we are doing different missions. The downside is Disney Infinity 2.0 takes two to three hours to beat a Playset. What comes in the Starter Kit is much less as well. The whole getting to play with any Marvel character in any Marvel Playset turned out to be false. We can only play with certain characters after running all around town collecting all their tokens. The original base in Disney Infinity is still playable with Disney Infinity 2.0. However you still need to purchase the Starter Kit so there is no cost savings there. The Toy Box is still fun to mess around with.

Skylanders Trap Team forces families to purchase a new portal, and Starter Kit. Which is equal to what is done by Disney Infinity 2.0 essentially. The storyline in Skylanders Trap Team is continuous. Well technically all of the Skylanders games have continuous storylines. Skylanders Trap Team (home console) takes around twelve to fifteen hours to beat. So it definitely feels like we get our moneys worth out of the Starter Kit. There are plenty of mini games, and reasons to replay levels in Skylanders Trap Team. The traps are cheap, and allow us to play with enemy characters for a limited amount of time. The 3DS version of Skylanders Trap Team contains its very own story that is interesting and engaging. The 3DS version has also shown major improvements.

So the end analysis at this time is Disney Infinity 2.0 took a step backwards, and Skylanders Trap Team has taken a step forwards. Which means at this point in time we are giving the crown to Activision, Toys for Bob, and Beenox. We see the edge has moved to the Skylanders franchise. Disney Infinity 2.0 is not that far behind. As Disney Interactive continues to release Playsets there is a possibility for this to be reversed. Family Friendly Gaming keeps an open mind about that. The humor in Skylanders Trap Team is one of the things that won us over at this point in time. Can Disney Infinity 2.0 redeem itself in the coming months? Time will tell. If Disney Infinity 2.0 can catch up to Skylanders Trap Team, or surpass it we will work on another update to this toy/video game competition.


God bless,
