It has already been a few months since Disney Infinity 3.0 has hit the stores, with the first Star Wars set, set in the middle of the Clone Wars. While this portion of the Star Wars saga is certainly an enjoyable one, most hardcore fans were waiting for the new ‘The Force Awakens’ set, which revolves around the movie, which is currently still playing in theatres all over the world. Today we have the chance to present you with our opinion of this new set, albeit only the set, as the main mechanics of Disney Infinity 3.0 and the Toy Box still remain the same. Our original review can be read by clicking here.


Just like the name of the movie, this play set will revolve around the story of the seventh movie of the Star Wars universe, thus for those who still want to see the movie, we’ll keep things rather vague. Luke Skywalker has vanished into thin air after the destruction of the second Death Star. Nonetheless, there are those who still wish to find the legendary Jedi, and it seems Poe Dameron, a rebel soldier and Finn, an ex-soldier of the First Order, have tracked down Luke. The data has been stored on Poe’s adorable BB-8 droid, which will hold the key for their future adventure. Sadly, the First Order does not want them meddling in their affaires and they wish to claim the droid as their own, while disposing of the duo.

After escaping from their imprisonment at the First Order’s stronghold, their spaceship crashes into a desolate planet, where they will have to gather enough allies and resources in order to complete their mission.

Everything is presented with small cutscenes, but mostly by the use of conversation screens and text windows, which never truly take you out of the game to enjoy a true cinematic experience. Nonetheless, the visuals of this set are quite pleasant and it feels as if some of the rough edges have been taken off the otherwise comical visuals. Sadly though, the typical bugs still remain, where you and your enemies often find yourselves running through walls, notice frame rate drops and see bugged AI’s from time to time.


Star Wars is of course known from its musical scores and Disney did a great job implementing them in this set and made sure the music would enter the foreground at just the right moments. The voice acting is authentic and proves to set the right tone, which the overall flimsy storytelling tends to overlook.

Just like the other sets, you’ll have to occupy yourself with errands and quests for NPCs which are scattered throughout the universe, and are often simple find, fetch, escort and/or destroy. Other than that you’re free to roam around, destroying many things in sight in order for you to collect experience and points which can be used in the Toy Box for you to spend. Of course, experience tends to still be a valuable aspect, as your character needs to get stronger and learn new skills. Sadly, just like the previous sets, the objective markers often don’t appear quickly, making you run around aimlessly for long periods of time.

Salvage becomes an important aspect of this title, as you’ll have to collect as much scrap as you can in order to complete certain quests or fix certain pathways on the map. The latter proves to be rather important if you wish to reach new locations or find some of the secrets stashed away.


Seeing Disney Infinity sets often don’t support characters from other sets, Disney made sure to implement a token system, with which you can unlock the characters from the other Star Wars sets. By doing this, it doesn’t render your other characters obsolete, if you’re someone who just loves to play through the story sets, rather than use the Toy Box.


All in all this new set that embodies the story of The Force Awakens proves to be a fun asset to your Disney Infinity 3.0 collection, and feels like a must have if you’re fan of both the Infinity franchise, as well as Star Wars. While the overall simplicity is still present, and the game is still pestered with small bugs and atrociously long loading times, this ‘expansion’ proves to be rather amusing.
