I understand this game has gotten low reviews. Most of these low reviews are because of the camera, too dark to see at times (Turn up your TV brightness), and repetiveness okay well I cannot argue with Hardcore gamers who are spoiled and need almost every game perfect waste of time. I will argue though that the camera can be frustrating but not at all game breaking, learn how to utilize the camera right and you will be fine. It being too dark well like I said turn up your brightness or get better eyes lol. Repetiveness is in every single game out there IMO and this game has great replay value cause of the moral choices you make with the paint/thinner brush.
This game is just full of fun adventuring into 80 years worth of Disney and just for that I really appreciate this game. It utilizes the Wii very well and pretty much one of if not the best graphics for a 3D Wii platformer next to Mario Galaxy series. If you love Disney and Mickey Mouse get this game, I will warn you though this is not the happy go cheery bright Disney you are used too it is dark and has a gothic feel to it. I just think this game is really cool and I consider myself a pretty hardcore gamer with the PS3 and 360 games. I just love video games in general and this game has really stood out there. Now for difficulty I would say for anyone 10 or older and has a grasp on platformer games in general and with good reading skills. There is a quite of bit of reading to do but nothing over the top. Kingdom Heart fans should really enjoy this game as I am one of them, you will not be let down by this game unless you are a spoiled gamer and nit pick about the littlest things. Go get this game A.S.A.P

This game looks like it is packed with fun not just for a certain audience but everyone! Before you know, Mickey might be the next big thing besides Mario in video games.

I adore this game. The title does sort of make you hesitate, and make you think that it's a game for children. However, that is not necessarily true. I believe that this game is perfect for all ages. It is a pretty dark game - sure, mainly visually(which can sometimes be bad. It's best to play this when it's not very sunny outside, because the sunlight on the screen can make it very difficult to see the game), but the plot is also on the darker side of neutral. I find the game pretty difficult, especially the second-to-last and final boss battles(I actually had to have help for one of them. It's a bit hard to figure out what to do on the second-to-last one). The music alternates between very Disney and dramatically scary. I have heard several people complain about the camera, and I have to say, it's not very good. However, during this game, the angles that the game automatically sets are usually good enough. Overall, this is a very fun and challenging game that is great for all ages!
Rated 10 out of 10 by huntingpaul A masterpiece created by the unlikely!
Disney has created many not well done games so my expectations for Epic Mickey were not exceptionally high. Sure they did Kingdom Hearts (which was VERY good... the first one at least. The others were just a little above average) but that was created by SQUARE, not Disney. Disney just provided characters and voice acting. This game is true to it's title though. The game is truly epic and as a big Disney fan I was astonished. It is the best Disney Interactive game ever. The visuals are smooth and very "cartoony" feeling. The sound is nice and crisp. But most importantly the gameplay is some of the best I've seen on the Wii. The world around you can be altered at anytime to your liking with the paint brush. You can either use thinner or paint to solve various puzzles to progress through the game. Oh yeah did I even mention how much there is to do? For a game world that is not incredibly large there is plenty to do in Epic Mickey that will keep you entertained for hours after the game ends. Overall, great job Disney!

Let me start by saying the game is too beautiful not to love. The movie scenes are very cute and could be in a TV show, or movie. The towns, and designs of the whole game are so intricately designed it's crazy. There's an inspiration behind every thing in Wasteland. Now, the game play in the game is fun. Every one in a while it got tedious with all the "fetch this, and fetch that" missions, but with cool enemies, and places to explore it was very fun. The sound was perfect. The music changes depending on how you act to characters in the game. Each piece was done masterfully. Overall, the game was a success. The camera could be bothersome at times but I personally constantly kept my finger on the control pad so I could just move it myself when I wanted to. I've seen worse cameras. The game may have been easy at times, but in the end, I felt sad the game was over. I'm expecting a sequel to one of my favorite games ever.
Rated 10 out of 10 by blinkar I HOPE FOR A SEQUEL!!
This game is nothing but amazing!! If you enjoy open world exploration, Disney, or both this is the game for you. Graphics: Some of the best I've seen on the Wii. The detail is outstanding. You will definitely know where they've got their inspiration from if you have been to any of their theme parks. Sound: Nowhere will you get a better Disney soundtrack than here. Music is from the actual theme park rides with a bit of a twist to them, to make them sound a bit eery. Control: Easy to pick up. Similar to Mario Galaxy, except with the addiion of the paint brush. Gameplay: Platforming and open world exploration. There is the main story line, but you can take on side quests. Every decision you make will impact the game one way or another. There isn't your boring good ending and bad ending. Every decision you make (or don't) will affect the game later on. OVERALL: This game is amazing. There is so much to discover. Classic cartoons, art work, they even included a badge collecting system (similar to the one they have in Disney World). I hope they make a sequel.
Rated 10 out of 10 by ILoveDakotaFisher Purely Amazing.
I've written a review before, but when i was like, twelve. And what made me want to do another was seeing this game rated as a 7.6? And someone rated it a one? No this game is a perfect ten. I only made the lasting appeal an 8 because once you finish the game, there's no more unless you just wanna replay it (I did, equally as fun) But that still doesn't make this game bad in my eyes. The story line is amazing, and the challenges are fun. And the fact that they're coming out with a second one? I jumped for joy when i found that out. Everyone should buy this game, its not a stupid kids game cause Mickey's in it. I'm not even a fan of Disney. At all. But this game looked appealing and it truly is. It truly is epic, and more of a darker side, and it uses the old style drawing of Mickey-which is my personal favorite. The controls are really easy to use, so no problem there, the graphics are amazing as well as the sound. And like I said, the story line can't get better. Anyone should buy this game, or at least try it from somewhere. Take my word for it, it will not be a waste of money.
Rated 6 out of 10 by ProfessorMoriarty A neat idea but not for the intended audience
I actually bought this game for my wife, who is more of a disney geek than I am ( and beleive me I am a disney geek). I watched her play it for the first time and she struggled on the first screen of the game until I showed her what she is doing wrong and from there she has continued the game and is stressfully managing each test and I am wondering, this is for kids right? So I played it and I was getting into it and caught up to where my wife is and surpassed her in the game and the first thing you notice, as you progress, the game seems to get uglier and higher as in heights (if you are afraid of heights this game is not for you). But the real turn off for me was my wife cussing (she doesn't cuss) trying to get through some of the tough sections and I have to admit, it can be real frustrating doing that double jump that this game requires you to do tediously. My verdict is that if you are great at video games and enjoy mickey mouse or disney for that matter, give it a try just for the nostalgia but if you have a short fuse (like I do) put this game down and never pick it up again.
Rated 10 out of 10 by StokedRider Epic Mickey Is Back and Ready To Show His Moves
Epic Mickey is a truly wonderful platforming game that combines excellent level design, stellar artistic direction, superb cutscenes and storytelling, an incredible soundtrack, and the list goes on. This is the Mickey game you've been waiting for. I've heard many complaints that Disney went too dark with Epic Mickey, but I just disagree. I grew up in a society that wasn't so politically correct. Have you ever seen Fantastia? Have you seen the boatload of old Disney cartoons? They were dark. Believe it or not, those darker scenes were nothing compared to what clogs the airwaves these days, but anyways, that's your choice to determine what is and isn't for you or your loved ones. I just know that Epic Mickey is a game that's fine for all ages, and I think it should be bought by anyone who enjoys Mickey Mouse, old Disney cartoons, platforming games, or all three. Highly recommended.
Rated 10 out of 10 by ILoveDakotaFisher best game ever, story line is ahmazing
this game is absolutly amazing, i knew about it way before it came out from my cousin and immeditaly i knew i would get it. i love how they used the old style of mickey and not the new style cause personally i like it more. entering oswald into the game was my favorite part, i never knew about oswald until this game and i love the story of the forgotten brother and all the cut scenes just make the whole game. the gameplay over all was great. the way to get around Wasteland is these projector screens and they used old cartoons of mickey and oswald to base it off them. that was ahmazin if you ask me. i love how you can choose your path in the game, you could either destroy things with thinner or save them with paint. you also have daisy donald and goofy anamatronics in the game that you resamble. either way the game would basically end the same except for a few key parts with your missions that you do. You can destroy enimeis with thinner of befriend them with paint. game is easy yet challenging at the same time. definiatly worth the money, best game ever, my favorite is the cut scenes, expecially the last one(:
