Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two

5 Overall Score
Story: 7/10
Gameplay: 3/10
Graphics: 5/10

Imaginitive and engaging for the intended audience.

Poor camera angles, controls, and irritating challenges. No clear presentation of objectives.

Why Acceptable?

It’s hard to explain my rating for the game… Why? Because a game rated appropriate for seven year old audience actually did a pretty good job at creating a clever little plot for the audience and while some of the twists seemed obvious my co-op buddy (you know who you are) was deceived by them which suggests that the intended audience might not notice either. Because of that I actually say it did a very good job given the intended audience it was targeting. In contrast the boss battles where ridiculously frustrating and tediously long. In addition to that the camera angles would get stuck in the most annoying manner for no apparent reason, the objectives weren’t clearly drawn out at times and the game had a habit of either giving you too many hints on what to do or non at all. Furthermore the game forces you to repeat annoying segments over and over punishing you for the slightest mistake reminding me very much of Ninja Gaiden minus the motivation of hacking things into tiny cubes. I am actually reminded of one point when I had to repeat a platform segment over and over in the slowest manner possible so that the “invisible paint” wouldn’t slip right off me and get me spotted by the “all seeing eye” or some such thing… At that point my co-op buddy very nearly quit. We actually both did quit right after the boss of the second chapter because that is how tedious it was. Although I accept that this may be because neither one of us is very patient with this game. Graphically I would say the game is acceptable. As in it is just right for its intended audience… not good not bad just what it needs to be.

Total: 5/10 (Acceptable)


Who should get this?

  • Disney Fans
  • Younger Audience
  • Adventure game fans

NOTE: In order to play this game I advise that you have the patience, calm, and perseverance of a Bhuddist monk.

      Hello Rami! Thanks for leaving the comment but as is the case with all opinions a review is subjective to the person reviewing the game. But what you can do to help is leave a comment on your very own breakdown of the game and why you would rate it so! That will allow different readers with preferences similar to yours to get a closer match in reviews.

      Also in my defense… I do not enjoy the Call of Duty Franchise very much. I actually have a stronger preference towards Fantasy and RPG based games (with the exception of the Halo and Mass Effect series)

      Thank you for reading this and my best regards to you,
