Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two Xbox 360 review
18 December 2012
Excerpt: Veteran game designer Warren Spector and Disney seemed like an odd combination, but the original Epic Mickey had some bold ideas and some critical praise. The sequel returns to Wasteland, home to Disney’s forgotten characters including Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. Can Mickey and Oswald together discover the cause of the earthquakes, fix the projectors and find out if the Mad Doctor has really become good?
Conclusion: Epic Mickey 2 is like a wonderful celebratory book of Disney lore where 80% of the pages have been torn, ripped, doodled over or spilled coffee on. On a base level there are numerous things to love, but the actual playing of the game turns that joy into hard, bitter anger. I enjoyed the first game despite its flaws, but the lack of a compelling story and a less interesting world combined with the variety of problems enforced co-op brings has rendered the sequel painful...
Conclusion: BOTTOM LINE: Epic Mickey 2 is an action/platformer whose puzzles are made more interesting by choices you make, you can either paint stuff and make it better or use thinner and destroy, there are some consequences to which approach you take. Gameplay can be frustrating at times, but mostly because of the ineptitude of your companion, its best if play co-op with another person. It won't hook you right away, but it grows on you.
Review: Epic Mickey 2 loses some artistic charm on the Wii U
26 November 2012
Excerpt: I think it's safe to say that Disney's Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two doesn't entirely live up to its premise. As you could see from the previously posted review of the game, it comes up short in many areas, due to Junction Point's inability to address most of the problems that kept the first game from being a true classic, and adding a few others on top of that.
Excerpt: Disney’s Epic Mickey was an interesting experiment, telling a tale of the Wasteland: an amalgamation of Walt Disney's notable, but forgotten characters, worlds, and attractions. While it was full of great ideas and boundless ambition, the Wii-exclusive suffered from a litany of technical and design flaws, threatening to make Epic Mickey as forgettable as the obscure characters it referenced.
Pros: Improvements to the camera, Fun Disney nostalgia, Occasionally strong art direction
Cons: An overwhelming number of uninteresting sidequests, Terrible teammate AI, Difficulty navigating the game's world
Summary: When Epic Mickey first graced the shelves in 2010, it was met with both pleasant surprise and underlying frustration. The brainchild of legendary game designer Warren Spector, this Wii exclusive was certainly not lacking in style, originality or potential and proved to be a bold move for Disney at a time when they seemed to be stepping back from the gaming market.
Pros: Great atmosphere, Interesting characters, Awesome co-op with a friend
Conclusion: Acredito que por esses motivos é que temos observado que Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two não tenha caído nas graças dos jogadores como aconteceu com a primeira versão, fazendo com que o game obtenha vendas fracas e não seja na verdade tão “Epic” assim. O jogo distribuído pela NC Games já está disponível no mercado e possui a opção de legendas em português.
Conclusion: Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two was op de grote consoles in het beste geval een middelmatige game, maar op PS Vita verdient het zelfs dat oordeel niet. Daarvoor schort er op technisch vlak te veel, terwijl de kleine toevoegingen vaak nog onhandiger zijn dan de standaardbesturing. De werelden zijn tenminste nog mooi om te bekijken. Dat is echter niet genoeg, want na enkele levels moesten we ons al met de grootste moeite door de game zeulen.
Conclusion: Für ein Kinderspiel hat der Titel zu viele frustrierende Steuerungsmacken. Als Spiel für Erwachsene funktioniert Micky Epic 2 auch nicht, da der seichte Anspruch kombiniert mit wenig neuen Ideen nicht gerade für motivierende Spielfreude sorgt. Empfehlen kann man das Abenteuer dennoch Eltern, sofern sie das Spiel gemeinsam mit ihren Kindern erleben und an den kniffligen Stellen aushelfen.
