GamesBeat's Mike Minotti: Power of Illusion is a delightful, engaging, and clever tribute to one of Mickey’s greatest games. In many ways, it surpasses the original Castle of Illusion. In fact, this is the best title starring Mickey in years. Ah, the hell with that. This is one the best 2D platformers I’ve played in a long time. Yes, that includes any with the word “Mario” in the title.
