I am still have a great time playing Disney Interactive’s “Disney Infinity” for the Wii U.  I bet I play about five or more hours a week by myself and about two to three hours a week with my daughters.  We love playing in the “Toy Box” and also playing with the many different play sets that are available.

I just received a review “Sorcerer’s Apprentice Mickey” which is the latest new figure that is available for “Disney Infinity,” and I think it is by far my favorite one in the set.   

The figure looks amazing, and it sculpted beautifully.  It is very detailed, and Mickey stands on a stone floor from the wizard’s castle.  I really think that it’s cool how there is a unique base that each figure stands on. 

Mickey is a lot of fun to play with in the “Toy Box.”  He has his own unique catch phrase when you put him on the base, and he also has his own special powers.  Mickey can shoot magic out of his hands, and he can also throw magic, and it will act like a homing missile.  Mickey also has another really cool special attack where he can summon magic brooms, and they will attack enemies which looks awesome.

There is also a special adventure called “Mickey’s Magical Escape” toy box adventure. This is really fun, and I know people are going to love this.  Each character has a unique special level with a challenge.  In “Mickey’s Magical Escape,” you have to try and get out of a castle as fast as you can while dodging traps.  I had a lot of fun playing it and thought it was pretty challenging.

I really think that Disney Interactive’s “Sorcerer’s Apprentice Mickey” is awesome.  I feel that this is a must have for anyone who has “Disney Infinity,” because Mickey really adds fun to the game play. I also think that it’s great to see another classic Disney character in “Disney Infinity.”
