"Your intellect may be confused, but your emotions will never lie to you." Review of Inside Out on Disney Infinity 3.0

We love the film Inside Out, having watched it last summer - it had just hit the in flight movie timetable on our return journey home from Canada. For anyone who hasn't seen the film, the core characters are emotions experienced by 11 year old Riley when she moves home. So when the lovely people at Disney sent us a Play Set (with Joy and Anger) and a couple of extra characters for Disney Infinity 3.0 we couldn't wait to get stuck in.

Here's nine-year old D's 30 second take on the game:

 You play, of course, as one of the five emotions that dwell in Riley's mind. When she starts to have a bad dream, it is up to the emotions to restore order and save the day (well, night). As with other games for the Disney Infinity 3.0, you can choose which character you play as, and you can either play alone or with a friend.

Each emotion has their own special abilities, and you will need to use more than one character to complete the game. And, being Disney Infinity, you can upgrade each character within the game and make them even more useful as you progress.

And each emotion has their own fantastic characteristics and quirks. My personal favourite is Disgust, as she throws witty and sarcastic remarks as you move around, particularly if the other player in two-player mode drops out.
Early on in the game you get used to popping balloons - they look nice, but are cluttering up Riley's mind and need sorting out. As you progress, you must find core memories and return them to their rightful places, defeat Subconscious swamp monsters, move mind workers around, and battle the terrible broccoli. Being set inside Riley's mind, the landscape is constantly changing and it is simply stunning to watch the game unfold.
You can watch the official trailer for Inside Out on Disney Infinity 3.0 right here:

 Of course, once you have played with the characters in the game itself, they become unlocked in the Toy Box and can join you on your truly infinite adventures!

More information about the Inside Out Play Set can be found on the Disney website.
