Disney Infinity 3.0: Star Wars Rise Against the Empire Play Set Review

When people think 'Star Wars', they don't think about Episodes I through III. They think of the original trilogy — A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi. Because as much fun as Anakin, Obi-Wan, Ezra, Sabine and the other launch day characters are, I've raised my kids to know who the real stars of this franchise are.

They know that Han hot first. They know that you always let a Wookie win, especially Chewbacca. They know that Luke is a Jedi, like his father before him. They know Princess Leia can doesn't betray the Rebel Alliance in the face of evil. And they know Darth Vader is the best villain ever. With all of this knowledge, all they wanted from Disney Infinity 3.0 was a way to play as these characters and experience their story, then go on to make their own.

Alas, we have the Star Wars Rise Against the Empire play set, which comes with an adventure that spans the events of Episodes IV through VI (differently, though), and comes with Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia (Han Solo, Chewbacca and Darth Vader are sold separately). From Tatooine  and Hoth, to Endor and the Death Star, the Rise Against the Empire play Set takes you on a journey through your favorite movies with the characters you love the most. But does it do them justice while fitting in with Disney Infinity?

Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition: Toy Box Speedway Review

Kart racing has arrived in Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition in the form of Toy Box Speedway, allowing players to take their Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars characters into a race track stadium and participate in multiple race types across varying themed tracks. The second of two Toy Box Games (the first being Toy Box Takeover), Speedway should appeal to fans of racing and kart games.

Personally, I always found the driving controls and gameplay to be the weakest part of Disney Infinity. It’s a combination of the controls and race tracks for me, but my kids love it. So I was unsure about how I’d feel about a Toy Box Expansion focused solely on racing. I loved the combat and story of Toy Box Takeover, but would that love translate over to speed and glory?

Let’s see how it fared…
