    Theirs so many innovative ways to make a game like Epic Mickey 2 a gaming experience filled magic, interactive, and like the title says 'EPIC'. However their is none of these attributes to be found here at all. Instead your left visiting a mashed up collage of random levels that has no structure, or magic, and iffy controls leave the game feeling more like a chore, than a magicalTheirs so many innovative ways to make a game like Epic Mickey 2 a gaming experience filled magic, interactive, and like the title says 'EPIC'.

Its a shame to see a potential hyped up title, to fall almost at the first hurdle. Hopefully for a given the planned expansion future titles to come, looking unlikely given the shoddy sales, the dev team will huddle down and find their creativeness. so all in all its worth a play, but just beware the frustrating controls.

    Epic Mickey 2 is an average game. The story is very poor and not at all epic! There are several glitches especially with Oswald, whitch makes difficult to enjoy the game when Oswald doesn't collaborate. The game play is simple and boring, even exploring the Wasteland isn't that fun...like I said is a average game that unfortunately was not that fun to play.

    An engaging, if light, co-op platformer. [Issue#226, p.78]

    Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two has the right idea. It encourages youngsters to work together, that magical Disney quality is prevalent, and the overall design is actually quite good. But a shroud of poor mechanics and outdated technical elements dooms this potentially enjoyable adventure from the start. Bad AI, loose control, collision detection issues, and vague, sometimes boring objectives keep getting in the way.

    Boss battles are tedious and companion's AI is disastrous (which might explain why the puzzles are so basic and repetitive – that dumb rabbit probably wouldn't handle anything more elaborate). And it's not really a game for kids because on occasion it's rather difficult (partly due to abysmal jumping mechanics). Each time I put the controller aside after playing this painfully generic game, I was tired and bored. And I hated my job a little. [1/2013, p.60]
