Disney Magical World
What Disney Magical World Is
Disney Magical World, is a game where people can put their Mii inside different Disney themed worlds. You can open up a cafe go fishing, plant seeds, so yeah it's a lot like Animal Crossing with a Disney theme. Except, you can customize your actual Mii, with over a hundred different Disney themed outfits. Your also be able to meet dozens of different Disney Characters, like Mickey, Donald, Aladdin, and more. Don't take this game lightly as one to pass off. The game has been received very positive in Japan, and has sold very well. Imagine Animal Crossing plus Kingdom Hearts, how awesome is that!? Don't take it as just a kiddie game, any die hard Disney fan, or simulation gamer should give this game a thought.
Not what I was expecting, but better.
I bought Disney Magical World expecting an Animal Crossing like experience but found the game is much more of a crafting and resource gathering RPG affair than a straight life sim. This isn't a bad thing. The game borrows more from Harvest Moon than anything else. Disney Magical World lets you create a character (or import a Mii) who moves to a town called Castleton populated by familiar Disney characters and that links to other Disney worlds like Cinderella's Castle and the 100 Acre Wood. You quickly discover that you are the person in town who is going to have to craft lots of things, run a business, grow crops, do fetch quests, and fight ghosts. At the center of the game is a crafting system. Ultimately you are doing things to earn money and crafting items in order to craft new things such as furniture for the cafe you run or new clothing items for your character. While the system clock does impact the game in terms of the time of day and the season this is one where you can progress at your own pace and you aren't tied down to playing everyday, an issue I had with Animal Crossing being a working adult. As you complete tasks you earn stickers which are essentially levels. More stickers means unlocking more things you can do and more things you can craft. The main activities involve running a cafe (including cooking the dishes for sale and choosing what they will be, along with the appearance of the place), fighting ghosts in action RPG style complete with small dungeons, fishing, crafting clothes and furniture, bringing characters various requested items, and growing crops. This is a gentle experience and there isn't a lot of challenge but the gameplay is varied and enjoyable. I'm pleased that the action sequences have more to combat than just mashing one button with multiple attacks and a dodge. My only big complaint is the graphics with some very grainy textures and low polygon counts marring the visuals in some areas. Resource gathering can also get repetitive and dull after a while as well. Overall, Disney Magical World is a solid game for young Disney fans and even some older ones who won't be turned off by lack of challenge. It's bigger and deeper than anticipated. There is plenty here to keep you busy for a good long time.
