Toy Story Mania Review
- Soundtrack, while the same song, changes according to the different level themes.
- Family friendly content featuring Disney characters.
- Easy to use and responsive controls.
- This is a very simple, kid-friendly game and might not be everyone’s cup of tea.
- Steep price for a kid’s game.
Think hard about who will be playing the game by before committing to the steep price. If it’s for anyone who may be too old for a series of Toy Story mini-games, then it may not be worthwhile.

Toy Story Mania is mix of different arcade style mini-games features the characters of the Disney and Pixar film Toy Story. There are 5 mini-games to choose from, 4 of which are arcade style shooters, while the last game is a Ring Toss. Each level has a different theme according to the character in charge of the game.
Controls for each mini-game are different; but they all incorporate either flicking or tapping the screen. Players are given instructions on how to play with a diagram before each game. They are usually similar but are all individual to each character and their mini-game.
The visuals are all 3D and are visually friendly. The sound is quite good as the music changes in each level according to the theme of the game and levels are filled with fun sound effects. The game is single player only, with a local highscore board for each game.
Toy Story Mania is a mixed collection of mini-games that would be great for kids and families. The safe Disney content and easy to use controls make for fun gameplay and accessible to almost all ages. The game might be limited in that though; if you’re not into the more child like, simple games then you might want to reconsider buying this rather pricey title. However, if you want a fun game to play with your children or younger siblings, then look no further.
