    Epic Mickey is pure magic and makes you realise what we're missing from today's society and why Walt Disney's cartoons were just so good.

    The developers have done a great job in making this universe quite epic as you attempt to colourise this dull and dark universe. Sent there by a bad scientist, it's once again up to Mickey to save the universe and the game gives the player some power in how this will be done.

    There are enough side missions to keep the main game feeling fresh, and enough darkness for Mickey to overcome, once again showcasing his badass side.

    If you are willing to put up with an incredibly frustrating camera and problematic combat in order to experience a rich world and entertaining story then give Epic Mickey a try.

    Marvelous game, stunning animations, RPG motives, multiple solutions to puzzles, stylish visuals, great hero with potential to compete with iconic Mario – all buried six feet under because of crappy camera and controls. [Issue#199]

    Epic Mickey is a game that falls short in the part that counts: the gameplay.

    Nevermind these heightened expectations, though: even on its own merits, Epic Mickey is a platformer that feels about a generation behind, though one with just enough flashes of inspiration to keep you constantly aware of its wasted potential.

    I don't understand why all the hardcore "gamerz" out there believe this title should have been made only for them. My kids love the game andI don't understand why all the hardcore "gamerz" out there believe this title should have been made only for them. My kids love the game and have enjoyed it tremendously. Maybe they aren't trying to be journalists and sound important on the internet for all the other nerds. I'm very happy with my children's enjoyment of this game and I trust Disney. The end. Expand

Having said that, the camera system can be a bit annoying at times and the game play doesn't always provide instant gratification, but I'd say... 9 Expand

    Excellent title for those who love the Disney world, it allows a lot of in-depth analysis in this sense. Playfully speaking it is a goodExcellent title for those who love the Disney world, it allows a lot of in-depth analysis in this sense. Playfully speaking it is a good platformer, the idea of the brush that shapes the game environment is valid and implemented well, but nothing transcendental. The structure of the missions, however, is trivial and repetitive, the camera is not well managed and the difficulty tends too low Expand

    I cannot understand how some people can give this game a 10. I'm a big disney fan and I was expecting a lot from this game. And I'm beingI cannot understand how some people can give this game a 10. I'm a big disney fan and I was expecting a lot from this game. And I'm being objective here, the idea is great. The art is sweet and adorable, totally keeping the 'Disney' feel. When I saw the mixed reviews I still went ahead and bought the game, to make an idea of it all myself.

    But sadly, the level design isn't too permissive and the cameras are horrendous resulting of a very frustrating experience. Sure the first few minutes are fine, but if you keep going it gets tedious fast. I was also a tad disappointed of the lack of voice over, sometimes I didn't have the time to read the text and it was gone. And at some point I was so frustrated of not being able to solve a platforming area because of the jumps, I did hand over the controller to my bf and he gave up as well and was pissed off, then his brother tried and same things, gave up and said it was not enough permissive. So to me, it falls flat... No more than a 6/10.
