Last week's release of the free-to-download Disney Infinity 2.0 was just the tip of the Disney PC gaming iceberg. Today Disney Interactive has released a whopping 21 titles on Steam, from traditional children's fare to arcade racing action. What's worth checking out?

Pure — $17.99

One of my favorite off-road racers of the previous generation, I'd completely forgotten Pure was a Disney joint until just now. There's some amazing scenery in this game, and some sweet rides to tear that scenery up with.

Split/Second — $17.99

I remember sitting in the Disney Interactive booth at some E3 or another, so excited about Split/Second, the arcade racer where the tracks are constantly blowing apart. The console version was tons of fun. The PC port isn't perfect (locked at 30 FPS?), but it's still a good time.

LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game — $17.99

While not my favorite LEGO video game by a long shot, LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean is indeed a LEGO video game, painting the unbelievably popular film series in a humorous LEGO light. If you're a fan of the movies, you should own this.

Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two — $17.99

This is where people will start throwing things at me. Epic Mickey 2 is nowhere near perfect — in fact, it's a bit of a mess. But it's a beautiful mess, fulled with lovely sights and heavy with nostalgia. If you can get past the horrible AI and clunky mechanics, it might work its way into your heart. If you crave perfection, steer clear.

Toy Story 3: The Video Game — $17.99

The precursor to the toy-centric Disney Infinity, Toy Story 3: The Video Game is one of those incredibly rare movie tie-ins that goes beyond the obligatory and straight on to extraordinary. Come for the story mode, then play in the Toy Box mode all day long.

Tron Evolution

Hahahahaha. Just kidding. The rest of today's releases are a mix of standard children's fare, bad movie tie-ins or games that fall into both categories. Some of these might be great for your kids, and who knows — maybe they'll accidentally slip the mouse from Cars 2 to Civilization V one day, and a whole new world will open up to them.

1) Wow, that's a lot of gamers that are actually faaaar cheaper to buy in hard copy form for a console!

2) Epic Mickey 2 is SUCH a mess. I personally loved the first Epic Mickey and even enjoyed the 3DS spinoff, but the second one doesn't boast anywhere near the same level of twisted creativity and nostalgia.

3) However, TRON: Evolution was totally fun. Prince of Persia: SOT-style platforming plus combo-based disk combat plus visuals based on Tron: Legacy = DELIGHT.
