What is Disney Infinity 3.0: Toy Box Speedway?
Disney Infinity 3.0: Toy Box Speedway is an expansion pack for Disney Infinity 3.0 that adds a racing mode to the game. As such, it requires a copy of Disney Infinity 3.0 to run. With nine courses to burn rubber around, each themed around a popular Disney (or Star Wars) film, from Guardian of the Galaxy to Frozen - and, of course, a great recreation Sugar Rush from Wreck it Ralph - there's a great range of courses on offer here, and a track everyone will love.
How do you play Disney Infinity 3.0: Toy Box Speedway?
Each of the nine courses can be played in one of three modes - Time Trial (which sees you racing against a CPU ghost), Race (standard races against five other racers), or Battle Race (which is essentially the same thing as Race, only with added weapons), giving you plenty to get stuck into. Race and Battle Race also further divides courses up into single races, or tournaments, which let you take on a group of three tracks back to back, with your score tallying across all three.
A little bit like Mario Kart, some races in the Toy Box Speedway let you pick up weapons and power-ups, while others are more straightforward affairs focussed purely on getting the best racing line. You'll be racing in vehicles you've unlocked by playing through the main game, and can play in split-screen with up to two players, or play with up to four online. Still, where else can you come into the final corner in Tony Stark's sports car, only to be overtaken by Chewbacca in a Sandcrawler...
How easy is Disney Infinity 3.0: Toy Box Speedway to pick up and play?
In terms of accessibility, Toy Box Speedway can be tricky to get into. The enemy AI puts up one heck of a fight, even on the easiest settings, with computer controlled racers that know (and will take) every shortcut, and will pull out every trick in the book to leave you standing in the dust. What this does is create a very steep learning curve that'll see you placing in 5th or 6th for your first few races, until you've got the hang of the drifting system (hold the left trigger to drift and charge your boost meter), and the boosts (flick the right analogue stick forward to boost). Once you've got the hang of it, there should be few issues - but it's certainly a bit tricky for the first few races.
While the game does allow for online play, you can only invite people who are on your friends list, and there's nothing in the way of online matchmaking, minimising any potential interaction with strangers.
With nothing in the way of swearing, violence or sexual content, there's no mature content in the Toy Box Speedway add-on.
