Returning to his bed won't be easy, though, because Mickey must first recover the broken mirror pieces that have been strewn about the house by the prankish poltergeist. Just as in a Mickey cartoon, you will have to outwit enemies and pull gags. You will also be able to uncover special souvenirs, such as Pluto's collar or Minnie's bow, which are all displayed in Mickey's room at the end of the game. Expand

  1. Magical Mirror is light and lively fare for those Gamecube owners tired of hacking and slashing through piles of demons but wanting to have a gaming good time while relaxing on their sofas in front of their TV sets.

    The slow pace and indirect control may not appeal to players looking for an action-oriented experience. [Aug 2002, p.142]

    Geared towards a younger audience, Mickey is mind-numbingly simple, and it's a shame that such impressive visuals had to go to waste on such a disposable game.

    It's just plain boring and often tedious. Most kids will find the game as just that.
  5. The incredibly slow pacing and monotonous puzzles will override the Disney entertainment factor for the young as well.
  6. It's a strange hybrid of game and cartoon, but my main problem is that is not quite either. There are sections of activity, followed by long periods of inactivity. If I were five, I reckon it would frustrate me. I'd want to watch or play, not both.
  7. It is without doubt the worst thing on the cube. The Graphics, Gameplay, Sound and Lifespan are all extremely poor, and I still can’t believe two of the most respected company’s in the business have put their names on it. Laughable.

Easy for both kids and adults to enjoy even though the difficulty isn't very high. Enjoy a game with Mickey that isn't long and drawn out by a battle system or isn't demoralizing you because of poor controls or camera angles. Expand
