    Default Epic Mickey (wii)

    Definitely *is* Epic.

    Played 2 hours last night and it was awesome. Everything looks fantastic! It's a very 'mature' type of game as the land is in a dire state and it is clearly due to Mickey from the intro video. There's no 'happy happy' Disneyland music here.

    Every area looks like a Disney park ride set to a theme, but it's in some state of disrepair or chaos based on the level design. The B&W Transport film corridors between these areas are straight out of the source material (Steamboat Willie, etc.)

    Everything and everyone has a name. I've freed around a dozen Gremlin helpers and they've all had names (Pinzo, etc.) I'm sure Disney afficianados would be even more enthralled by things like this.

    Gameplay mechanics are most like Super Mario Sunshine except with paint and thinner to add/erase objects and enemies and solve puzzles. There are some early hints that erasing every enemy and not painting areas has consequences, but I'm not sure where this is going yet. Because of this I'm not sure what the age range on this is supposed to be. 12-14?

    My only 2 minor 'issues' so far: no voice work except the gibberish talk started way back with Banjo + Kazooie. Also there are some camera issues with painting certain items (like a bridge), but you can move it around with + and center with "C", so that solves most things.

    Final conclusion: another definite must-buy for any wii owner.

    Thanks for the review. I've been waiting for this game, and have been anxious to see what other people have to say about it.

    I watched a review and thought this looked cool. It's funny, most people think Mickey and they think it's a kiddy game...but the review made it sound like this game is more complex, probably something a little kid couldn't figure out. Reminds me of the Kingdom Hearts games. They had all the Disney characters I loved when I was younger, but those games had some pretty hard moments in them. I'm still waiting for Kingdom Hearts 3...

    Sorry to change the subject, lol. I've been thinking of buying a Wii, and if I end up getting one, I will definately pick Epic Mickey up at some point. Definately looks like fun.

    I played the game at the E3 and it was kinda of interesting. Thanks for the feedback. I should buy the game in the near future early next year.

    For those wondering IGN gave this game an 8.0

    While it seems like most of you are allergic to the "like" button, I just want to personally say thanks for looking anyway.

    Played 3 hours last night due to the Kings game tonight. Lots of good stuff again... like Mt MickeyJunk where you have to hop over actual Mickey items like puzzles, books and Nintendo game cartridges.

    Got an unlockable... for a 1928 cartoon for Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. The thing is awesome for the time period. Runs around 6-8 minutes. You get it after you play the level in the game as Mickey and they did an awesome job with the game design on it.

    Since the whole game revolves around the Oswald character who came before Mickey, I was reading yesterday that in 2006 Disney traded (among other things) football announcer Al Michaels to get the rights back from Universal.

    Played a few more hours on the weekend, and let's just say the designers drew on a LOT of Disney history. I don't want to spoil anything, but there's a boss stage from a certain sequel that comes out of the 17th. My jaw hit the floor when I first saw it! LOL

    Passed my 19th hour on the game clock last night and I'm still not done. Definitely one of the best games of the year.
