Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two
Shame it didn't use Wii U hardware more
This game is a port from the Wii, just made to use the Gamepad for some things. However, aside from utilizing the Gamepad to show a map and your sketches, and the analog stick to aim, there's no real perk to using the Gamepad. Several times, I wished I could just use a Wii remote and nunchuk to play the game as it was originally intended. The controls were sloppy, the aiming reticule so sensitive yet turning so laborious (possibly something the options would allow to change). If it had functioned more like other third person shooters, such as Lost Planet 1, it would have worked a lot better. As it stands, the sensitivity is almost as bad as the random camera angles it throws at you. Furthermore, the frame rate suffered universally and made those time a gross annoyance. But that is not something a patch can't fix. On a positive note, the game was fun and enjoyable. The musical numbers were so bad they were amusing. It definitely felt like Disney. If they end up making a third, I truly hope they utilize the Wii U capabilities for a much smoother experience.
Got this game the other day and I am kind of disappointed after playing the first one when it came out. It isn't terrible, I actually enjoy it many times, but it still has its problems. Laggy sometimes, repetitive and kind of easy. The boss fights are fun though, and the 2D levels are pretty cool. However, it doesn't really take advantage of the gamepad. All the gamepad is good for with this game is looking at your map, there is no other features they put in. Overall it is average.
played for 2 and a half hours the game was laggy and frame rate was slow and the game was awful. i don't recomend looking at this game
Waste of 60 Dollars
This was a true waste of time. This game sucks badly even the 1st one. I really hate the gamer reviewers because they give good games bad ratings but I agree with them to give this game a low rating. What is everyone 5 or 70 Mickey is dead, played out, very lame. Id play Rise of the Gaurdians before this and that was horrible.
One of the most boring games I've played
I managed to play through the entire game, although it was not worth it.
I really don't need to say much about this since critics have been bashingit sincethe day it was released. The whole game is flawed in all areas gameplay, controls, level design. The only good thing about it is the great story elements that is typical of Disney. It can be charming at times, but it is hindered by the horrible repetitive gameplay. The additional Wii U features feature very little to be excited about. The occasional drawing onthe gamepad does not make the flawed experience any more enjoyable. I regret buying this game, I should have baught Batman Arkham City. or ANY OTHER platformer.
The first game was a modern masterpiece but this one just blows it away! I love the toe-tappin' songs and the amazing plot twist! (Even though I saw it comming :P) Overall this game is truely amazing and the wii u brings it to life even more. Job well done Disney!
What can I say I love platform games
I like platform games, I like the first Epic Mickey. This is not for hard core gamer fans, this is for light hearted casual gaming. It fun to play bot single and two player, good use of controls. The game is a little buggy in places and frustrating when you have to be in the exact right spot to get the jump right. If you like platforms games then this is a must, if you want zombies and guns give it a miss. I enjoy playing it, does not use the wii u pad to any great extent, just a map so far showing hints.
Pre-ordered it at first chance!
I have the wii U deluxe edition coming in (and paid off) and this is going to be one of my first games for it!. I am excited for the HDMI and high quality the wii U is going to bring and am excited to see such a beautiful game played on it. The oswald ears are a very awesome bonus! Can't wait to pick this up day one!!! =D
