Nostalgia At It's Average.

From what you've seen of the trailers, developer diaries, etc. make this game look amazing. Sadly that isn't the case through most of this game because this is mainly a "Questing" game. Unless you enjoy running back and forth for sometimes meaningless challenges then this game isn't for you. Graphically it was an amazing Wii game but the controls weren't accurate enough for quick aiming and the camera could be a pain to control at times. The story itself is wonderful if you can get past all the meaningless garbage you have to endure and seeing all those disney characters again on screen brings back childhood memories (at least for me). Overall this is a rent and not a buy.

This was a sweet and sour kind of game. One moment it was sweet to be followed by a sour moment. It had an unending sort of quest that blended in with another quest. And with no real guide nor direction on how to navigate around the game it was frustrating on how stay focused on moving forward or even backwards to catch obvious items missed.

It would be quite a great game to have and fulfill many of the slots as you can have old Disney cartoons as your reward. But for me it was attempting to be a little too much instead of being one kind of game. And the paint and thinner element wasn't very well articulated in using more to the figure it out way. As far as I progressed the way it was used didn't hold my interest.

So close but no cigar for me!

I have a 17 and a 12 year olds.
Both kids love the game.
They say it's like Kingdom Hearts meets Legend of Zelda.
They say don't bother purchasing the paintbrush chuck control.
