I don't know why this game is getting such a bad rap. Sure, the play control is not great, but certainly manageable and not enough to ruin an otherwise great game. Based on reviews, I was prepared not to like it, even to let that knowledge skew my opinion, but I found myself unable to stop playing and finish it to the end. Super original, puzzles that retain your interest even when stuck for a time on an area. Collectables galore, and you don't feel bad whether you decide to get 'em or skip 'em. Try it! Fun game!
The original "Epic Mickey" was a mess. The controls were clunky, the camera was broken, the environments were drab and dreary, and, perhaps most incredibly, there was absolutely no voice acting. "Epic Mickey 2" does a serviceable job of correcting most of these problems, and is definitely a better game than its predecessor. Make no mistake, however; despite these improvements, it's still a very mediocre game. Though the game is actually playable this time around, it remains repetitive, largely uninteresting, and short on substance. Worth a rent if you're a Disney fan, but nobody should be blowing sixty bucks on this.
Now this game is not batman arkham city black ops 2 but i seemed to play this more than them i dont understand the bad rating it is probally people putting a review without playing but i would deffinitly reccomend this game

Please be informed that this WiiU version forces you to use the GamePad to control Mickey. You use the Right Analog Stick to move the aiming reticule. If you enjoyed the natural aiming controls in Epic Mickey 1, this WiiU version is virtually unplayable.
