StickSkills said, "Epic Mickey 2 is a disastrous sequel to an interesting failure, taking multiple steps backward in its refusal to fix the fundamental flaws of the original game. Much like Resident Evil 6, my experience took me from cautious optimism, to general dislike, to active hatred. Pleasant waves of nostalgia are quickly overrun by terrible gameplay mechanics. You’ll get more enjoyment out of this game by simply admiring the concept art. For anything beyond that, it’s not worth the frustration."
