Disney Infinity 3.0 Thoughts: “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” Playset

TFA Poster-X2
Spoiler Thoughts:

Warning:  Potential spoilers for the film “Star Wars:  The Force Awakens” as well.

  • Wow, I am controlling this tie fighter in the intro as much as I always thought I was on the motorboat ride at Disneyland.
  • Well this was a succinct way to summarize the first half hour of the film.
  • Ok, taken ownership of Rey.
  • The first skill I always upgrade is health, because I tend to die a lot.
  • The second skill I upgrade is ranged attack, because personal bubble.
  • BB-8 is so kawaii in every incarnation.
  • Ugh. I can’t find the holding pen for this mouse droid.
  • I must say, I think this Playset is doing a better job of demonstrating the basic commands than the previous ones.
  • Or else, I was too confused to notice last time.
  • So far the beginning money/salvage collection mission is pretty similar to the beginning of the others.
  • I am a pretty poor shot as a starship gunner.
  • Like Henry Jones Sr. bad.
  • HAN.
  • Wow, Han got older looking digitally than in real life.
  • Poor Emo Vader.
  • Han took us to Takodana. Where, judging by the appearance of the building, we’re going to go eat at the Rainforest Cafe.
  • Oh, already died. Finn’s up next.
  • Oops, Finn was apparently poorly trained for this type of combat.
  • …The flailing around, button-mashing combat, that is.
  • Ok Kylo. Your turn.
  • Wow, Kylo darts around like a rabbit on speed.
  • There’s something pretty satisfying about seeing Kylo Ren dig around in the garbage, salvaging.
  • Hm. It appears you can’t do all the missions with every character. Kylo Ren can’t do this hacking mini game.
  • Oh man, this land/water speeder steers like the Mako.
  • This is a lot of stormtroopers.
  • Sheesh, the stormtroopers keep coming.
  • The stormtroopers with shields are pretty crappy.
  • I like how I can shoot a guy nine times and then suddenly Rey will decide she’d rather aim at a wall or a hapless bystander.
  • Ok, I can only hit these tie fighters if they actually fly into my shot.
  • Fortunately I can use that against them, because the only way I can hit the target areas is to fly into them with my ship.
  • Oh man, I cannot figure out how to get up to this ledge.
  • I’ve destroyed everything in this room nine times over.
  • Ok, finally got to the ledge.
  • Oh, the big platforming sequence.
  • I totally suck at the platforming sequences.
  • OMG, I hate this jumping segment.
  • Died as Finn.
  • Died as Poe.
  • Actually, you are better off dying than missing the last jump, because the last one puts you back at the beginning again.
  • Oh hey, turns out I actually did not know how to activate the super jumping ability.
  • So, a little easier with that.
  • Kylo Ren, you are one Pain in the Force.
  • How many times do I have to kill you?
  • Died as Rey.
  • I could not kill Kylo Ren with Kylo Ren.
  • Died as Darth Vader.
  • Ok, maybe you can’t kill him conventionally.
  • Finn, you’re back in the game.
  • Finn is doing a lot of dodging.
  • You might not be a Jedi, and you might still be level one, but you got the job done, Finn.
  • Yay, we won this battle!
  • Hm…wonder where Han went. Oh, he’ll probably turn up eventually.
