This comes out today, and it sounded like there may be several people taking the plunge, so I figured I'd start a thread for impressions and such. 

So far reviews seem to be mixed, some saying it's a big improvement over the first Infinity, some saying it loses good elements from that.

I think my kids and I might really enjoy this but I don't want to get into the buy figures type games.  They have a friend with Skylanders stuff and it just seems like huge sink hole.

I picked up all my stuff.  I had gotten the Delux PS4 version (which came in a massive box) and picked up all figures except Iron Fist, because I really don't care about him.  Daughter is home sick from school, so she is currently playing it.

I can't even log in.  Some sort of multiple emails thing.  They keep telling me they've sent an email to fix the problem, but I have yet to see it.

My response to this type of thing may well be completely irrational .  It is as follows :  if you can't figure this out, forget it.   I'll quietly laugh while I read about another failed app.

And this as said as someone truly interested in introducing these games to my appropriately aged children.

Yeah, you can still use the figures in the 2.0 Toy Box mode.  Unfortunately the 1.0 play sets don't work, so you have to keep the old disc around if you want to play those.

What are you talking about?  This isn't an app.  It's how you sign into the game.

Did you have an account from the first game?  When I loaded up the PS4 version, it just knew who I was and even seems to realize that I owned the first game on some level.  Not sure if you were trying to create another account with the same email you used before.

I did, but it was on the 360 and this one is on the PS4. Additionally, it's looking at Disney accounts, not just Infinity accounts, and my daughter has one with my email (she only very recently got her own email).

I'm not sure why I have to wait for an email that never comes to fix this problem and choose one to be my primary account. If you're going to set up a system where recovery happens by email, send the damned emails.

I've also written to customer service and haven't heard from them, either.

Oh, forgot to mention I picked up 4 disc packs and was lucky to get Spider Man's black suit as one of the discs.  Also, got the Infinity Gauntlet, which is apparently a rare.

I played the Spider Man set a little last night by myself and after seeing how crisp the Avengers cut scenes looked, the Spider Man ones were really poor.  I guess they put all their effort into the main game on that.  Neat having a skill tree and all that, but the game is pretty basic (which I knew going in), so it's really just a game for my and my daughter to play together.

Yeah, it seems the heroes are really gimped at the beginning so that you can unlock all of the skills to make them actually fun.   icon_confused   

From the start, some of the heroes are just plain annoying to use with really long animations and like 2 seconds between attacks in a combo.  Overall their animations and combat timing is just really unresponsive, but things seem to be improving as I upgrade.  I got the combo pack from Amazon with the starter kit, Spider-man set, Venom, Thor and Rocket Raccoon.  I tried all of them out but about half the characters were totally un-fun.

I am enjoying playing as Spider-man and Iron Man for the most part, though.  I'll probably stick with the Spider-man version of New York (ugh, how similar are these two cities using the exact same buildings?) since I want to play as Hulk whenever they deem him available for non-collector's edition sales.

I believe in a month you can get him.  He's pretty sweet, though.  Heaviest of the figures.

I didn't realize I was missing out on the Hulk by not getting the collectors edition. I'm kinda bummed about that, but a month isn't too long.

I got it working after getting through to customer service on the phone. Overall, I like it a hell of a lot more than the first one. It's not fantastic, but it's fun and mildly compelling to play.

I played a little last night, fairly enjoyable.  There did seem to be a huge discrepancy in power between Black Widow and Thor at level 1.  I guess that's really as it should be based on their powers, but usually these types of games find a better balance.

I don't want to jump the gun, but I'll go so far as to say I might agree with this opinion.   But I'll need more time before I can commit to that.  slywink

Apparently they have now released this as a free download for PC which includes demos of a couple playsets.  Any of the normal/retail characters or playsets you've registered (using the code card) can also be used with the PC version, or you can just buy a cheaper PC-only digital version of any characters or playsets.

I think if I had known this was actually coming this time with the full game and not just Toy Boxes, I would have just waited and gotten this version.  I'd much rather just have digital things and not all of these toys sitting around.

So we're thinking of getting this for my 5 year old.  I have a couple of questions...

1: Is it too old for him?  The marvel version seems more older kid suited.  More violent etc
2: He doesn't really identify with marvel.  He knows spiderman, but that's about it.
3: Is there a disney character version where he could better identify with?  I see there's an disney original version but the starting characters are characters he doesn't care or know about.

My kid is 4.5 but I have the EXACT same questions. Interested in the responses....

If you don't already have it, you might be better off with the original Disney Infinity, which has worlds from Pirates of The Caribbean, Monsters University, and The Incredibles, with Cars, Toy Story, and The Lone Ranger sets available separately.  Disney Infinity 2.0 only comes with the Marvel world, with Spiderman and Guardians of The Galaxy sets available separately.  There are also a wide range of various Disney characters available, but these are only usable in the Toy Box creation mode, which I would think would be too advanced for a 5 year old.
