Reviews Disney Epic Mickey Disney Epic Mickey is an action-adventure platforming game for the Wii console that sends Mickey Mouse on an epic journey of creativity and discovery. As Mickey, the player is propelled into Wasteland, an alternate world made up of Disney’s forgotten creative efforts, and is given the power to wield paint and paint thinner to dynamically change the world while determining Mickey’s path to becoming an epic hero. Through the use of this unique paint and paint thinner, the key components of animation and Mickey’s tools for impacting his world, players will have the ability to shape how the story unfolds as they discover the concept of “Playstyle Matters” – an innovative style of gameplay created by Disney Interactive Studios’ Junction Point, led by industry luminary Warren Spector, where players creatively tackle different challenges in the world to explore all the possibilities and storylines – but with consequences for their chosen actions. $49.99 http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/514FxXihuRL._SL160_.jpg

The storyline of the game mixes reality with fantasy. The leader of Wasteland is a character called Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. Oswald was Disney’s mascot in the 1920s before Mickey Mouse came along. Mickey must capture the trust of Oswald to get the help needed to defeat the Shadow Bot. The use of paint is encouraged a weapon of positivity and creativity, while paint thinner, as a method of destruction, is the quick and easy solution.

Epic Mickey Wii is a fun and visually intense game. The designer’s use of existing Disney characters and beloved locations, such as Main Street U.S.A., as twisted and evil mockeries of themselves has been called daring and innovative. True Disney-philes will love all of the references to obscure characters that many players will not get. Finally, because the storyline is adaptable to game play, Wii Epic Mickey can be played again and again.

Certain aspects of game play for Disney Epic Mickey make the game difficult to play, in parts. Some levels of the game are in 2D scrolling fashion, but the graphics and control of Mickey is too soft for the precision movement necessary to complete the levels without replaying sections over and over. In addition, camera angles sometimes act strangely and are difficult to control.

Fascinatingly, Epic Mickey Wii, allows players to make Mickey act very out-of-character. Although it doesn’t reach levels of evil, it is possible to make him act like a real heel, and the game accommodates the actions with direct consequences. Despite all the fluff, the game is a platformer at its heart that is reminiscent of Super Mario 64. Presentation is visually stunning and the musical selection is well-chosen. On average, game play is around 15 hours.

Wii Epic Mickey is a fun and challenging game, whether you play it seriously or just goofing around. It is fun to make Mickey act badly, but it is more fun to discover creative ways to work through the levels. You will find yourself wondering what would have happened if you acted differently, which gets you play the game again immediately after finishing.
