Summary: The game is too complicated and more over is too dark. You can barely see what the crap is going on. I expected bright colored visuals and fun game with Disney title. No wonder this game tanked.
Summary: The Collector's Edition comes with a small plastic Mickey figure, a DVD, and stickers no one will use. The game itself can go either way. To me, this game is nothing more than a lame platformer with boring puzzle solving. The idea of using a paintbrush to create or destroy certain objects sounded like a cool idea, but to be completely honest, this game is very boring.
Summary: I had high hopes for this game and really liked the art and concept. But overall it just seems to have wound up as a sloppy platformer. I wouldn't just rate the camera as annoying; I'd call it an enemy programmed into the game that you can't defeat. Imagine playing the game with a tapeworm. No really, I think I spent more time fighting with the camera than I did with any of the actual enemies.
Summary: this game had so much potential. some of it was cool. i liked the storyline, the neat paint & thinner brushes idea, it all had an nice disney/magical feel to it. however- the camera angles (and some of the graphics in general) are so awful it makes for a disappointing gaming experience. not worth the time or money.
Summary: Sure it may look great, but the game play is horrible. Your game playing stops frequently (to show "animation" clips) Maybe a younger child wouldn't get annoyed with the interrupted game play, but for an older child and adult it is highly irritating. It's one thing to do that silliness during the training portion of the game, but it continues after as well.
Summary: I was not a big fan of this game. The camera angles often were bad, and hard to adjust. worst of all it seemed like every 30 seconds to a minute it would stop your playing for a cut scene. Its really bad in the begining when they teach you how to play. They teach you how to spray paint at least 3 times, and it got annoying. While a 7 year old might need to be told how to do something over and over its insulting to the older audience.
Summary: While the game is visually stunning and the world is well thought out, The game is VERY linear. Your mickey is dropped into a scene, the door closes behind, and you are given a task to complete. Until you compelete that particular task, you cannot move on. Miss a jump and you typically fall into a pool of thinner and die. Then you get sent back to the beginning of the task to try again. And again, and again, and again. Over and over till you finally get it just right.
Summary: This game had a lot of potential, both for kids and adults alike. Unforunately, it seems as though the developers got to a certain point and said "good enough", and let it go at that. For starters, aside from the opening cutscene, there is no talking in this game. Just occasional noises of surprise, fear, etc. Just a bunch of subtitles. The game gets the look down pretty good. The controls..
Summary: Positives: + It's a generally great looking Mickey Mouse game on the Wii. There's a lot of attention paid to the history of the character as well as the history of the character in video games! + The side-scrolling areas are fantastic! Better than the rest of the game actually! If you liked Mickey Mania, Castle of Illusion, or Magical Quest, then you'll smile every time you get to one of these levels. + The overall mood is interesting.
