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.
