Unravel Trial

I have finally played the Unravel trial on my Xbox One. I was waiting quite a while for this adorable platform game to come out and it did not disappoint at all!

The aim of the game is that there’s this little character made out of Yarn, and when he’s going through the levels he can sometimes run out of yarn and become thinner, restricting movement. So, you have to collect more on your way through the levels otherwise you cannot get any further.

It is such an adorable game and I am completely blown away by the art and animation that has gone into this game. It is just so beautiful and seems to really come to life!

Disney Infinity 3.0 Review

Do you want a game that you can play as several different Disney and Pixar characters, complete levels or do whatever you want? Then Disney Infinity is a great choice!
I was humming and aahing for ages about Disney Infinity.. I really wanted to purchase it, but not for the scary price tag. Luckily since Christmas time, it has gone down in price and a lovely friend of mine ended up getting it for me as he knew I kept wanting it!

You get a portal, that you can put the characters that you want to play as on and they’ll appear on the screen, and then you can place more things down like playset pieces (that are playable levels based around a certain Disney film) and other boosting items (that will improve your health, give you game expansions..)
So, on Disney Infinity there are two choices. You can either play the ‘Playset’ mode or ‘Toy Box’ mode – Playset mode is when you play the levels from the playset that you have on your portal and Toy Box mode is where you can roam the world and do whatever you want, play as any character and combine worlds together (so you can have Olaf inside Star Wars, or Mater inside Aladdin).

I feel like this game is such a great choice, although it can be pricey and this was my only downfall about the game! When you buy a start pack, it comes with the portal, the video game, two characters (the newest one is Star Wars) and a playset piece so you can play the Star Wars levels (not The Force Awakens or the original trilogy).

If you want to play as another character in the game, you need to purchase a character from an actual shop. These characters usually range from £9.99-£14.99 by themselves, baring in mind this doesn’t give you any new levels in the game, you can only play as that character in the Toy Box. If you want different levels, you can purchase a ‘Play Set’ around £24.99-29.99 which gives you two characters from the same film and the level will be based on that film (for example, Inside Out level pack comes with Anger and Joy, and then the playset piece to give you the Inside Out levels in the game!).
Beware, your child might want more and more characters and this can get pricey! But this is definitely a great game anyway.

For me personally, I prefer playing the Toy Box mode as you can do whatever you want to. You can build a house for all of your Disney friends (they have really cute little characters that run around now, and Funko have released what I believe to be the same characters called ‘Dorbz’), you can farm, you can fight, learn to drive vehicles, create new worlds and visit other people’s created worlds from around the world..

There’s so much to do on Disney Infinity and I was pleasantly surprised when I started playing it! I cannot get enough of it yet!
There are also the expansions too, such as ‘Toy Box Speedway’ that turns Disney infinity into a racing game and ‘Toy Box Takeover’ that has more adventure with villains!

I would highly recommend this game, for the Disney and Star Wars fans in the family. You’ll get hours of fun out of this game and they have recently released The Force Awakens playset too, which looks incredible!
That’s about it that I have to say about Disney Infinity for now – I will probably write some updates on how I am going with this game, what I have created and so on..
So keep your eyes peeled!

Xbox 360: Disneyland Adventures (Kinect)

Can I point out how much of an underrated game this is? This is one of my all time favourite games for the Xbox 360 and I always highly recommend it to families that love Disney.
If you’re a huge Disney parks and film freak like me, then this is the ultimate video game for you. No joke.
You use to Kinect (which is a camera for your Xbox 360 that detects your body, so you can control the game by using your hands, arms, jumping, dancing, ducking down..)
You get to walk/run around Disneyland, hug the characters, collect autographs from all of them, ride the rides (most of them have a level built into these, so you have to jump over obstacles, duck under things, move left and right to avoid stuff) and you can do whatever you like! Not to mention, that there’s also Hidden Mickeys in this game. Snap the camera out and away you go!

I really have no idea how this game wasn’t more popular? I have had this game for 3/4 years now and I still absolutely love it. There’s so much to the game and I have only completed about 50% of the achievements and I have been on here for hours!

My only problem that yes, it’s a Kinect game but I get so addicted to playing this game that my arms are in agony from all of the hours that I am playing it! You need to lift your arm and move it left and right to walk, and I am aching the next day but really feel the need and addiction to carry on collecting autographs and hidden mickeys! That is a sacrifice I am willing to take!

Have you played this? I’m so sad that this isn’t going to be reverse compatible with the new Kinect for the Xbox One but this is a game that makes me want to keep my Xbox 360 in the works!

You need Star Wars Battlefront!

Are you a huge Star Wars fan? Or even just a general lover? Star Wars Battlefront is definitely the best video game for the season this year, hands down!
Star Wars Battlefront is the latest craze from EA which is an action game that is either first person or third. You can play as classic characters such as Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Leia, Boba Fett, Palpatine or even the man, Darth Vader himself!
It is seen as a reboot from previous Battlefront games, but the graphics and the recreation of scenes from the older games is just mindblowingly beautiful!

I jumped onto my Xbox One and headed to the store to download the Battlefront BETA straight after work in November and I was not disappointed from what I saw. This took my breath away instantly – from the fact that I could play as Emperor Palpatine to defeat the rebels in a VS match to riding a speeder bike through Endor or even driving AT-ATs and X-Wings.

I would personally say that this game is 90% Online Play to get the most out of the gaming experience, but they do have a few missions and lessons that you can play by yourself where you have to defeat Boba Fett and protect your pods.

Like I said at the beginning, if you love the original trilogy, you will probably fall in love with this game. Travel to Hoth, Endor, Tattooine and fulfil your Star Wars dreams in an instant! The detail that has been put into this game is incredible – although people sometimes describe this simply as a Call Of Duty-esqe, shooter game with a Star Wars front it is still so much more than that for any Star Wars fan.

Why wouldn’t you want to run up to people and fry them to pieces with a lightsaber or force choke them? Also, there is a great achievement that you receive, if you get hit by an Ewok which made me laugh more than anticipated..

Have any of you play this game or are getting it for christmas? I think that this is an immaculate game which I will not tire of easily! It is perfectly timed with the fully blown Star Wars hype at the moment with the upcoming movie and I would recommend this for all ages, as there is no blood whatsoever in this – all friendly ‘shoot and disappear’ action.

May The Force Be With You,
Zoe
