But for the first time, Mickey and Oswald will join forces as true partners - Mickey with his magical paint brush that wields paint and thinner, and Oswald with his powerful remote control that allows him to command electricity. This new co-op play combined with enhanced in-game physics will further enhance the idea that "PlayStyle Matters" - a unique approach to gameplay pioneered by Warren Spector where players dynamically tackle different challenges in order to explore all possibilities and storylines, but with consequences for their chosen actions.

    The Vita version of Epic Mickey 2 is a good game. The absence of online multiplayer is a huge loss though.

    With the game being reasonably priced, it's a great choice to enjoy the game on the go if we missed it before. There are not great additions, so if you've already played it you will find the same experience with new controls.

    The PlayStation 3 version of the game was a disappointment and the same verdict applies to the Vita edition. Since this version has its own "improvements", we were expecting more. And granted, there's some neat features involving the touch screen, but otherwise it's the same mediocre game. It's fun for a while, but you have to be able to overlook its shortcomings.

    Seeing as it’s been close to a year since the original console release, one would have hoped that the Vita version had more polish. Sadly, this port only brings more issues to an already imperfect game.

    For one thing, it's a 3D platformer/action game on a system that is sorely lacking in such things. For another, it still looks and sounds wonderful; even though I'm hardly a Disney fanboy, the way the whole world pops off the screen still fills me with feelings of fondness for the game, however misguided those feelings may be. That's not enough to make me go in the exact opposite direction and recommend the game unequivocally, but it is enough for me to say that if you go into the game with no expectations whatsoever, you should, at the very least, find it to be passably decent.
  6. At its core, Epic Mickey 2 is still an enjoyable throwback to the golden days of mascot platformers – albeit an incredibly unfocused one – but it simply doesn’t shine on the small screen. [September 2013, p74]

    There’s definitely some promise buried deep beneath Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two’s surface drudgery, but this needless PlayStation Vita port fails to uncover it any better than its PS3 counterpart. In fact, the underwhelming adventure actually fares worse on Sony’s pocketable platform, delivering a framerate that flirts with single digits and some pretty inconsequential touch screen features.

With great physical and touchscreen controls, charming animation, pretty artwork, and a very reasonable price of entry, Epic Mickey certainly gets this gamers seal of approval.

    On the other hand, the cheap price is pretty good.
