Reviewer Steve Wright writes, "Warren Spector was contagious at this year’s Game Masters in Melbourne. He wasn’t spreading some illness from the plane he’d taken from America, but instead was infecting gamers with enthusiasm and joy.
"It was obvious that Spector was excited about his studio Junction Point’s upcoming game, Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two. Not a huge fan of the first game, I found myself ridiculously excited for its sequel, as Spector spoke of his team’s efforts to correct the things done wrong in the first. Spector called out flaws like overly silent characters, a failure to bring the game’s RPG elements to the foreground a lack of musical elements that are constantly found in Disney movies. Not only did I believe Spector that he’d been successful in fixing these issues this time around, I wholeheartedly wanted him to be."
