'Disney Infinity 2.0' Review in Progress

Disney Infinity was a game I played and played and played... For me, a diehard Disney fanatic, it was a dream come true. It was a game where you got to play as several different Disney and Pixar characters, but you also got to build your own Disney worlds and do tons of other things...
