Toy Story 3 isn't just fun for kids, it's fun for anyone and everyone! There are so many quests, unlockables, and games that it becomes hard to count them. You can play as W00dy, Buzz Lightyear, Jessie, or Zurg (who is exclusive to the PS3). You are a sheriff in a place known as W00dy's Roundup, there are many missions and games to play. You can unlock new missions and areas by buying more toys for the regions in W00dy's Roundup. What really makes this game fun is the level of customization. You can customize the town's buildings, people, and just about anything your little heart desires. Also, you will recognize many familiar faces from the Toy Story franchise throughout the game. I grew up with Toy Story so all these nice little touches really make the game shine.
I don't want to go into further detail about the game because you need to experience it for yourself! Overall, I would say buy/rent this game and if you don't you are truly missing out on some over-the-top arcade action.
p.s. Sorry about W00dy with zeros as Gamefly blocks it with the O's
"Toy Story 3" should have been the perfect playtime experience. Sadly, issues, especially in the Story mode, keep things from being perfect. Poor camera angles and slippery controls lead to far too many restarts. Repetition is not fun. Tighter controls or even better placement of level checkpoints would have aided this greatly. Even with the issues, most of the missions are somewhat fun to play. Where this game really shines is in the Toy Box mode. Here you play in W
oody's Roundup, an old Western town where the inhabitants give you assorted missions to tackle. The missions are varied and even on the simple side, but they're always fun, making it like we were kids again playing with all the toys in the toy box. This mode makes this game definitely worth the rent, even if you completely ignore the story mode. Just remember the more you do, the more you unlock, and there is plenty of unlockables to be found. Jump in and play this one. you'll be glad you did!

Toy Story 3 definitely stands out among PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 games. When you think about PS3 and Xbox 360 games, you may think about games like Call of Duty, Assassin's Creed, and other non-child-oriented games. Also, the few child-oriented games for PS3 and Xbox 360 usually aren't very good quality games in my opinion. But, not only is Toy Story 3 a child-oriented game for PS3 and Xbox 360, it is also a very good game in my opinion. The story mode sticks to the storyline of the movie fairly well, but don't forget about the Toy Box Mode. In Toy Box Mode, you can create your own Toy Story in settings such as the Wild West, Space, or something completely different. So, to sum it up, Toy story 3 is a change in PS3 and Xbox 360 games.
