    The portal part number is exactly the same as Disney Infinity 1.0, September 24, 2014

    If you have the portal from the last version of Disney Infinity, you don’t need this whole Starter Pack. The portal part number in this starter pack is the exact same part as the portal from the last Disney Infinity. You just need the new 2.0 game itself and the new figures. Save yourself some dough if you can and get the figures you want.

    Superb follow up to Disney Infinity. Open world superhero gaming? Incredibles all over again (in a good way), September 27, 2014

    This review is from: Disney INFINITY: Marvel Super Heroes (2.0 Edition) Video Game Starter Pack – Xbox 360 (Video Game)
    The original Disney Infinity was great. Open world roaming? It’s like GTA, but for kids! My son & I loved the Pirates of the Caribbean playset most of all… the pirate ships, the freedom to explore, the swords and pistols – great fun! Looked absolutely amazing on a Xbox 360. The Incredibles playset was a close second with the super powers, and the Metroville environment.

    The DI 2.0 Avengers playset (which comes with the Starter Pack) is like the Incredibles playset in many ways, except it’s Manhattan & not Metroville. And it’s the Avengers instead of the Incredibles. Monster spawning (where you could not take many steps in Metroville without a swarm of bad bots attacking you) is very much toned down in Manhattan, which is either a good thing or a bad thing, depending on your opinion of fighting the bad guys.

    Characters? At our house, we have (as of now) the starting 3 (Iron Man, Thor, Black Widow) plus Captain America. (Father Noel will provide us with the Guardians of the Galaxy set at Christmas.) In some ways, Thor and Captain America remind me of each other with the way the Hammer or Shield works, while Black Widow and Iron Man have similar ranged attacks.

    Each character has their own Skill Tree, which allows you to create different “builds” of their characters. With limited skill points, you can’t do everything well. You have to specialize… hand-to-hand? mobility? healing/party support? ranged combat? All have their pluses & minuses. This is a huge plus in DI 2.0.

    ALSO, DI 1.0 characters like Captain Jack Sparrow & Mr. Incredible? YES, they have skill trees as well! So in the Toy Box mode, you can build them up how you like!

    Other DI 1.0 compatibility issues? Those little plastic power disk? They STILL WORK with DI 2.0.

    Biggest negatives so far?

    This is clearly intended to be a Xbone/PS4 title. Things look more muddy & fuzzy on the 360. Now, there is so much more going on with DI 2.0 compared to DI 1.0, so the fact that DI 1.0 was more visually impressive is not a huge concern.

    The other thing is the load times. Swapping a character in DI 1.0 was very fast, but that’s not the case with DI 2.0, as said in other reviews. I notice the load times for characters now, and I didn’t notice them in the original.

    The least “negative” negative… character death. It’s much more harsh now. You have to rez your buddies. They don’t auto-respawn. The game lets you hot swap to any viable character to continue the fight (and any “dead” characters are resurrected at the end of the fight). This makes boss battles a lot more challenging in DI 2.0. My son needed my help to get past Loki (his sister was not good enough). So if you have little ones, definitely get the original Disney Infinity first.

    EDIT: The starter box also comes with 2 additional “discs” – Assault on Asgard & Escape from Kiln.

    Assault from Asgard is like a tower-defense game (think Dungeon Defenders, Orcs Must Die, etc), mostly built from what looks like Disney Infinity Toy Box bits.

    We’ve been spending the most time with Escape from Kiln, which is a Diablo-like 3rd person adventure RPG game. The camera is set back like Diablo, and you go around and “kill” bad guys, and collect loot to put on your minions.

    What we’re doing now is the “Survival Mode” from Escape from Kiln. This presents you with randomized levels (using, again, Toy Box bits) where you beat up all the bad guys to get to the next level. It’s a good way to score tons of experience sparks in order to level up. I don’t know how they do the randomized thing, but it’s pretty cool.

    What’s more, the Survival Mode is good for your old Disney Infinity 1.0 characters! So if you like overpowered characters like Elsa from Frozen, you’re all set! (Elsa is totally OP, though) The Survival Mode really breathes more life into the Toy Box-only characters from version 1.0, where characters like Wreck-It-Ralph didn’t seem to have a real reason to exist compared to Jack Sparrow and Mr. Incredible.
