Toy Story 3 is great because it manages to transcend the stereotypes built around licensed games and becomes something worth playing regardless if you have an affinity for Pixar or not.
The game is split in two parts, your standard story driven levels and something that's called the toy box.
The standard game revolves around you taking the cowboy, Jessie and Buzz Lightyear through Hamm's interpretation of the movie plot. It falls a bit flat in it's prose most likely so it can dodge having to adhere to the movie; but it makes up for it in clever level design, flashy presentation and variety. Sometimes you're chasing after someone on a horse; others you're sneaking though a daycare trying to rescue your friends in a stealthier level.
It's on the short side, and the last level disappoints because of it's tacked-on nature; but it's still a lot of fun.
The toy box mode is unabashedly awesome. It's an open world in which you help build a town by running errands for folks, earning money to buy things or your typical collectible gathering. The area is a blast to explore and there's oodles to do and find. There just aren't enough characters for me to convey all the wonderful things you can do, but I'll just say that there's enough to do to keep you busy and happy for a long time.
The best part of all is that the entire game, both story and toy box modes, can be played cooperatively. It's even more fun when you can play it with your kids or for them to do so with a buddy. There's also a neat hint system that will help you when you get stuck or even just spoil how to do it for kids that are having troubles.
All in all, this is a wonderful game that does a lot more than most people expect out of a game based on a movie. I'd give it my highest recommendation for families.
Although game was fun,it wasn't long enough,it would be good to if it was 3 player because there's 3 MAIN characters.Also,the achievements are pretty lame,believe me I love Toy Story but there were like 40.What are you achieving?The story was good,not THAT much changed from the movie,and the graphics were 50/50.I <3 Toy Story though!
