Disney Epic Mickey

 

If you have ever seen an interview with Warren Spector about his reverence for everything Disney, then you would be hard pressed to believe that Epic Mickey was going to be anything but a rampant success on the Nintendo Wii and certainly one of the...

Mickey's new painting adventure is sure to thin your patience.

Engaging story; beautiful and well-scripted cut-scenes; multiple ways to accomplish objectives

Godawful camera; busywork fetch quests; lack of clear in-game guidance; mushy controls

Due to how it plays, Epic Mickey is ultimately a hard game to recommend, but it's an easy recommendation for true Disney fans or players who've been dying to see Mickey in a new adventure. Even though I cursed and swore my way through the bulk of the...

Where's a plumber when you need one?

Lots of choice and consequence; Touching story with surprising moral issues; Paint and thinner mechanics; Great soundtrack and visual style

that could have been more creative; Some dark, muddy textures and environments; Spazzy camera; Terrible collision detection; Map would be more useful as kindling

Tedium and monotony overwhelm Mickey's new adventure, smothering its clever use of the Disney license.

Clever implementation of the Disney license ; Element of choice leads to some welcome unpredictability

Imprecise controls and an awful camera ; Repetitive and frustrating combat ; Tedious objectives lack originality ; Little direction throughout the adventure ; Repeatedly replaying boring levels isn't fun

Unfortunately, Mickey's magic paintbrush is the only gameplay element that is even marginally unique. The rest of the game is a retread of countless games that have come before it. Your objectives are particularly stale. In each location you visit,...

Disney Epic Mickey was no doubt a daunting task, as bringing a game with such artistic creativity to a machine like the Wii likely had its own set of challenges. Overall, Junction Point did a pretty good job; however, the game does have some...

Mickey has not had the attention in the video game world that other world-class stars have enjoyed. James Bond, Sponge-Bob, Spider-Man, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, even the notoriously bad Super-Man games have been more frequent than Disney’s...

Disney Epic Mickey is a game that came in with big expectations. I am not going to sugarcoat it. On many levels, the game disappoints. The source material literally gave the developers a limitless amount of avenues to take this game. For the most part,...

It's refreshing to see a game like Epic Mickey hit a system like the shovel ware-laden Wii because Warren Spector clearly has a lot of passion for the work of Walt Disney, and it shines through brightly here. Disney's creations are shown in ways never...

Epic Mickey is a very-flawed platforming/adventure game. However, it is also greater than the sum of its parts. It achieves greatness through its creation of an incredible in-game world and its atmosphere, but is held back by its problematic camera and...

Disney Epic Mickey Wii Review

 

I've never been a fan of Disney. Not of the classic range of kids cartoons and especially not of the new-age Disney range of teeny shows about pop stars, presidents and witches. They simply don't appeal to me. But one cannot deny the cultural impact of...

Great story and campaign mode ; Paintbrush mechanics are awesome ; RPG elements work very well ; Visuals and style very appealing

Control limitations are frustrating ; Camera issues also annoy

Oh Mickey, you're so fine...

So to sum up, this game is a great use of the Wii’s technology, and combined with Disney characters, art and music themes we know and love, this is a charming game, and it’s not too cutesy for the older kids in your family - although your emo teenager...
