Pros:Innovative Disney Dark, yet able to played by children of all ages
Cons:Camera Angles Jumping mechanics, platforming
The Bottom Line: This is not a rental game. The frustrationlevel alone is not worth it. If you like Disney, buy this game. If not, leave it alone.
Epic Mickey designed by Warren Specter is hands down one of the best Disney Video games in years. However, that statement is really anything to compare things too. Disney's past vetnures into the Video Game world have been lack-luster at best, and Epic Mickey is a step in the right direction. Epic Mickey uses an original storyline following Mickey Mouse on an adventure into a parallel universe where Oswald the Lucky Rabbit takes the place next to Walt Disney that Mickey plays in our world.
The game play utilizes the controls of the Wii well with only some small problems like camera control and awkward jumping mechanics. It is quite common for a player to run off of a platform, jump into thinner, or miss pieces of the platforming puzzle because the camera decides that it wants to watch a wall or the floor immediately infront of your feet instead of where you want to move.
One of the most inovative parts of the games is that your choice to participate in sidequest, help out the gnomes along the way, or to use paint or thinner as offensive means changes the way each level is played.
The game is ambitous and fun for both the casual player and the major gamer. Unlie other Wii games this is not one that you can play for long periods of time, but replay value allows this game to achieve most of the the onjects that was expected of it.
