Blue Striker’s Review: Disney Infinity 2.0

You can play Marvel, Disney and Pixar characters in Disney Infinity 2.0.

You can play Marvel, Disney and Pixar characters in Disney Infinity 2.0.

The game I am writing about is called Disney Infinity 2.0. In Disney Infinity, you can build anything, buy anything Disney, and go on cool missions. I have an even amount of Marvel and Disney characters that I can use. My favorite character is Buzz Lightyear, because he has a super jump. If you upgrade Buzz’s health to maximum, he can almost never die. I liked this game very much, because it is action packed and you can do anything you want. I would recommend this game to anyone and everyone.

Review: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes for Xbox 360

While Blue Striker awaits his Christmas gift of LEGO Batman 3, he weighs in with a review of LEGO Marvel Super Heroes:

This entry is about the video game LEGO Marvel Super Heroes.  I liked the game because it is fascinating and hard, but simple. One fact about the game is that you get to have vehicles.  There are three types of vehicles, boats, cars and jets.  Another fact is that some characters, like Iron Man and the Human Torch, can fly.  The game has only 15 levels, then you get to go to New York City, which is very exciting.  This game has the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier, where you can “spawn” [customize] new characters, and replay levels.  And last, but not least, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes have the Guardians of the Galaxy!
