CGM Reviews - Mickey: Power Of Illusion

With freshly pressed discs of Epic Mickey 2 currently spinning in every platform known to man, Mickey’s first sidescrolling platformer since the ancient 16-bit days has slipped onto shelves with little notice. Since it’s also got Epic Mickey in the title, I’m sure most people assume that it’s a 3DS port. Well, not so fast folks. You are severely underestimating what the good people at DreamRift have whipped up for us. While this game puts a magic paintbrush into the little mouse’s hands, more than anything else this is a throw back to the beloved Sega Genesis classic Castle Of Illusion. The designers nimbly mixed together elements from Mickey’s two most prominent video game outings in a product dripping with fan service and Disney references. Playing the game will instantly transport the most jaded of gamers back to a simpler time when Disney magic still had some impact on their now shriviled Grinch hearts. It’s a must play for anyone who has a 3DS and a childhood marked by the Disney empire. Unfortunately it feels like this game may have been rushed to shelves to come out alongside its console brother, which is a shame and a missed opportunity. Epice Mickey: Power Of Illusion comes oh-so-close to being one of the top 3DS games of the year, but instead is merely a strong Christmas release for Disney craving children of all ages. I suppose that’ll have to do for now….sigh… (3DS, Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion, Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion) 78/100
