Product Review - Disney Infinity 2.0: Marvel Super Heroes

Hi Guys, 
Disney Infinity 2.0: Marvel Super Heroes is an action/adventure game will take players deep into the Marvel Universe with classic characters and original storyline. The game allows players more opportunity for unprecedented freedom and endless possibilities to create new adventures themselves.
In Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes, players use real-world interactive Marvel figures to activate original storylines (Play Sets) in the virtual game worlds of some of Marvel’s most popular franchises, including The Avengers. In the Play Sets, players are able to take on the role of more than 20 Marvel characters including Captain America, Iron Man, Black Widow, Thor, Hulk and Hawkeye to battle enemies, complete challenging missions, solve puzzles and ultimately save the world from destruction. 

I played the characters of Thor, Black Widow, Spiderman & Iron Man and totally fell in love with them. Each has his own unique powers and limitations so deciding what you want to play with against which enemy is really great. This is great if you want to test some of the rival enemies against other MARVEL Super hero. I am not that good with Microsoft XBOX remote when I tried it but I will be buying the game to play on my Nintendo Wii or whenever I buy Sony PS3/PS4 and get rid of my ages old Sony PS2. I got the Hawk Eye as a gift to attend the premier of the game but I won't be able to use it unless I have the whole Starter Pack. 
Featuring an enhanced Toy Box mode, Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes has introduced new structured, franchise-themed adventures that players can customize and play using any in-game character from across the Disney Infinity universe. Fans also have hundreds of Marvel-themed items, locations, props and characters at their disposal to create their own stories or even re-create their favorite comic book moments. 

MARVEL FRANCHISES Marvel franchises introduce deeper, immersive storylines and Marvel Super Heroes deliver new combat gameplay, more destruction in game worlds, authentic Marvel gadgets and vehicles in Play Sets and Toy Box.
EPIC STORYLINES - Original, character driven stories written by award-winning Marvel comic writer, Brian Michael Bendis.  Authentic, intertwined stories where some Marvel Super Heroes can cross between Play Sets, all set in iconic Marvel locations.

ENHANCED TOY BOX - An all-new Toy Box mode that makes it easier for players to create and share their one-of-a-kind levels and mini-games with family and friends.  Use the new Creator tool to quickly build your worlds faster and easier than ever before.
