The magic paintbrush returns in this video review for Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two.
Ended up getting the Wii U version, just because I wanted to get another launch game. It makes me wonder what GS will give the Wii U version, because it has serious frame rate issues.
Please tell me this isnt the game Warren Spector had been wokring on ? btw Warren Spector is what you call a ghost that haunts rabbits. Yeah my joke is as bad as his game... WHY Warren ??? Whyyyyyyyyy ?
@GetafixOz The guy forged absolute masterpieces back in the day. It's pretty sad to see this coming through nowadays.
I played the first Epic Mickey and I do not recall it being as bad as the reviewer sad, it felt overall smooth to play. The camera was a little weird that was about it. I have a feeling they didn't get paid off enough for a better review or whoever played the game for the review just sucks at playing games. Hopefully a patch can fix this game.
@merigoldsass Where is the dislike button so I can dislike your comment ? This game is a cheap cash-in targeted for the non informed customers.Namely ,parents who buy it for their kids for christmas or whatever.Parents don't go online to check reviews.They just say,hey it's disney,this should be a good game for my kid.That's why they didn't even bother to fix the problems they had in the first game too.
To think they couldn't solve some very basic gameplay problems with the sequel. What a major disappointment.
Warren Spector needs to pull his shit together and get back to what he was doing before, you know, classic like Deus Ex? Dafuq is that? Is he in some sort of mid-life crisis? It hurts me seeing genius dev like Warren ending with games of this calibre. :(
I still want this game, but I'm afraid it's no longer 60 dollar worthy. I had it preorder ,but I guess I'll have to swap it for something else now.
as usual people badmouth the review. the art style looks beautiful but the ridiculous camera angles and the emphasis on 3d platforming (ugh) in spite of ridiculous camera angles is a game-breaking feature. the hitboxes are bad and that little bitch is annoying as hell. this game sucks but it's really bad that it sucks. this is a game that's so beautiful you want to love it but it gives you too many reasons to the contrary.
@ Tom McShea - Seriously is it that bad? It looks like you went out of your way to make the game look worse than it is by playing it like a little girl. I generally like what you have to say on quoted for truth but this is genuinely the first time I've come away from one of your reviews thinking that you were hateful towards the game for no reason other than Disney isn't in bed with CBS/CNET. Sorry if I'm objectively wrong here but I think what I saw and heard (the way you played and what you said) was in direct contrast to what my own years of experience with video games tell me. I may have some personal bias as a fan of Warren Spector, but don't you even think that the children it's clearly designed to entertain would disagree with you? My assumption is the kids that have played polished platformers by the likes of Nintendo wouldn't even rate it that low! I love you guys at GS but this review just seems unnecessarily focused on being bitter about things that have long been technical issues in games, and not on highlighting any of the games merits. Whereas Halo 4 gets a 9 from Watters and he can barely justify why as it's pretty much more of the same stuff from 10 years ago. Peace
@LE5LO My kid agree with his review.
It's not a good game and it's only fun because Mickey is on screen.
So if you're a Disney fan or Spector fan buy it.
I would imagine Tom McShea would destroy a room full of Mickey Mouse memorabilia like a football player. How embarressing!
A damn shame but not a surprise.
As a side note, the audio on this video is a little, rough. Don't know what went wrong but sound levels are all over. maybe take a look at that guys? I only say that because its not the first time in the last couple of months where I've been watching a video on gamespot and the audios been all over.
I don't understand why developers insist on using very narrow FOVs. that's what makes precise jumping so hard.
I kinda thought the demo was pretty good but jeez, Having Oswald help you jump across gaps is a chore in and of itself but IDK, to me everything else seemed to work okay. I'll wait a bit for it to drop in price before getting it.
this kind of trash should've stayed on Wii. This just shows how Wii has its own low standards. the first comes on Wii alone and scores decently. The sequel also comes on hd twins and scores a nice lol but if it was on wii alone it would've score high enough because for its low standards its *good*.
