Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two: Wii Game Review

The Mad Doctor is back and it's up to Mickey and Oswald to stop him! This week Kidzworld reviews Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two.

The first Epic Mickey game brought paintbrush gameplay that was decent, but troubled with poor camera control and semi-awkward movement and aiming. Epic Mickey 2 promises improved camera, a musical flair, and a playable second character in Oswald the Lucky Rabbit.

The Power of Two

In the first game, Mickey saved Wasteland, where older Disney characters have been discarded, and returned to his world. Since then, the toons and blots have started to co-exist in an uneasy truce. The Mad Doctor has returned, despite being blown up in the first game, and sings a song about changing his ways and offers to help rebuild Wasteland. Oswald and his friends are suspicious of the Doctor and bring Mickey back to help investigate.

Mickey and Oswald make a powerful pair. While Mickey can use the paint and thinner to fill in and remove objects, Oswald can use his ears to fly or throw them like a boomerang. Together, Mickey and Oswald can work together to access certain areas in every level. As such, both characters are always present. If there is no second player, the computer will control Oswald.

Decisions, Decisions

Some toons are still holding grudges against the blots and you will often have to choose between friending blots or thinning them out. The choices and decisions you make can change the environment and affect what areas you can get to. Luckily, there are several ways to complete every level.Overall, Epic Mickey 2 is a great game for Disney fans. There is a lot of random Disney trivia and references. However, the game itself is a bit slow and unexciting. There is nothing outright bad about the game, it is just hard to feel interested and motivated to play the game due to how slow it moves in gameplay and story.

Rating:4

Price: $49.99

ESRB Rating: E for Everyone
