Beautiful environments ; Great concept ; Tons of great references for Disney fans

Sluggish controls ; Cumbersome camera ; Subpar combat

When Epic Mickey was announced, fans of classic Disney were overjoyed. The prospect of a dark, twisted take on the world’s most famous mouse from the depths of the mind that brought the world System Shock and Deus Ex seemed like the ingredients for a...

Tragic Kingdom

Interesting concept; great story ideas; tons of classic Disney references; plenty of extra content and replay value

Unpolished, sloppy, and dated; narrative gets lost in busywork tasks; terrible camera; unreliable controls; boring quests; shallow morality system; unfulfilled promise

The moose is loose in the hoose.

do with Mickey Mouse. But it really sounds like Spector and his team "got" it, and treated the character with such care that Disney didn't keep them on a leash. In fact, the one thing Spector says Disney brought the hammer down on him for is "Mickey...

Epic Mickey (Wii)

 

The enemies are typically blot or robotic in origin. Most of the bosses are various renditions of Pete whom you can either destroy or make an ally. I love how this game teaches forgiveness and has an option to redeem your foes. Your capacity for paint...

Unique artwork; enchanting story; fun and challenging game play

The camera controls are annoying at times but mostly work

Review: Epic Mickey

 

Epic Mickey is an ambitious title that looks to bring Mickey Mouse into the modern age. In the opening sequence, mischievous Mickey accidentally tinkers with some magical paint that has epic consequences, turning another world into a wasteland. After...

Epic Mickey is built on the premise that Mickey uses two important things: paint and paint thinner. Mickey can erase or create elements that he shoots from his magical brush (like making a platform step appear out of nothing) in the wasteland. Paint...

What will make or break this game to most players will be the camera system. The game uses mainly the D-Pad to control the camera movements and it feels like a nuisance as you constantly have to adjust where you want to look ? problematic given all the...

Epic Mickey has charming moments and will probably be more enjoyable for a Disney fan than a core gamer, but there are issues that prevent it from meeting its high expectations.

Games review - Epic Mickey is not so fine

 

Is Disney's long-awaited Wii exclusive an epic adventure or an epic failure? GameCentral uncovers the characters, and game, that time forgot.

A lot of work has gone in to the game, with a treasure trove of Disney references and some occasionally clever puzzles. Attractive cut scenes

The platforming feels a decade out of date and the moral choices and paint/thinner options don't go nearly far enough. Glum, miserable atmosphere and graphics

A bad idea poorly realised, with some below par 3D platforming married to mismatched graphics and a vague and unsatisfying morality system.

"For Disney fans old and young alike"

 

To be thrown into a world created from ideas and characters from the Disney archives and see it all come to life is amazing. This game is a tribute to everything Disney. You'll see characters long forgotten and visit places based on real world...
