looks like crap if you ask me. I was Expecting something in the likes of Kingdom Hearts.
I think it look's good for a wii game. It's smooth, clean and colourful.
looks like a kiddie game, its on the Wii of course
Looks like Rayman.
im pretty sure that if it was a ps3 exclusive it would be hype has much has it is. but now that its a wii game its a kiddie game?!
While I liked the sound of the game, the actual screen shots are a mild let down. I was hoping for that dark twisted world shown on the magazine (EGM?). The screen shots don't capture the feel that the preview art had. Either way I will still keep track of this game.
for expecting Kingdom EMO-KIDS-FAVORITE hearts
I'm with Vicious on this, kingdom Hearts was kiddy at best. However, I won't judge this Mickey title until I play it myself.
LOL I guess you didn't even bother looking at the concept art... wich was what had everyone excited
After seeing that AMAZING concept art, I'm sort of let down by these screenshots. They really fail to capture that strange, dark, moody, and even creepy atmosphere that the art had. I mean, for a Wii game it does look decent, but the ATMOSPHERE is not there.
...Mickey Mouse doesn't have as much clout as people think. I have nieces and nephews that have no idea who Mickey Mouse is. Likewise if they're expecting the usual Wii crowd to buy this game they are sadly mistake. Sales for this game will suck and people will complain and b!tch about how no one buys non Wii-Fit games. Mark my words and bookmark this page. They should consider releasing this game as a PSN Live game to recoup their loses now.
"I have nieces and nephews that have no idea who Mickey Mouse is." That's because Disney is pushing tween idols down kids throats with crap shows like Sunny with a chance. Mickey Mouse is dead in Disney. Long live Hannah Montana for them. I remember as a kid with Disney stuff like Donald Duck, Animated movies, and of course Mickey Mouse. In this generation, it's all about money.
can't wait :) [really] :)
it's really too bad they choose to go wii-exclusive... sounds amazing, but given the recent trend of 3rd party flops on the console, i wish they'd reconsider.
You think a Mickey Mouse/Disney game is going to flop on the Wii? I don't.
"You think a Mickey Mouse/Disney game is going to flop on the Wii? I don't." Well "given the recent trend of 3rd party flops on the console." It may or may not do well because Mickey Mouse is NOT Mario.
Ahhhh wasted on the Wii...looks like a movie spin off game, yeah that bad.
Actually looks pretty cool.
I hate it that people compare Epic Mickey to Kingdom Hearts. Both are different games people, seriously. Also something i find funny is that people claim a game sucks and it's going to fail in sales when it hasn't even come out yet, that's just funny people. Anyways, cant wait for this game :)
the thought of someone dropping $50 on something like this is crazy. Well I guess your that someone. Have fun with your game ^_^
epic at all.
Oh dear, my expectations have gone down a lot.
I'm agreeing with you. The lighting, art work, modeling are all sub par with even the mediocre Wii platformers out there. Hopefully they hire in some new artists and do something with the game engine to make the lighting better, or else it will be named Epic Fail Mickey.
Looks like sh!t
Looks better than halo and you must be looking in the mirror if you think it looks like sh!t.
Compared to PS3/360 games, but it looks pretty good for a Wii game imo. Definitely worth checking out, as for Halo you obviously haven't played it. It's been out for 2 years and it still looks fresh.
Fresh what are you an mc from the eighties hip hop era who uses that word. Might as well call it dope or hype. And yea I have played halo 3 and it looks like a fresh poo. Word to your mother.
dear cyborg, You're an idiot. The game looks like complete garbage. If i was buying it for my n64 i might be excited but this game looks bad even for wii standards.
Dear douche bag above me have you seen the game running and if I think it looks good that's my opinion, Which I never stated looked good in future please read the post for correct belittling. That doesn't make me an idiot. Maybe I broke your little heart about the halo comment and to that I am not sorry. Please do the world a favor and swallow your tongue.
well here it is geniuses. concept art is called CONCEPT ART for a reason. looking at Donald and the other steam punk based imagery they aren't that far off from the original concept art. except IT ACTUALLY HAS COLOR NOW.
On the other hand, what's wrong with expecting the game to reflect the mood of the concept art? It's not like all the concepts were in b&w either. There are some on that very page in color. It looks surreal enough...But looking at the screens it's impossible to tell this is supposed to be steampunk or post-apocalyptic or anything else they talked about. I guess we'll have to look at this as a progress report. It has to get better though.
whatever helps you sleep at night the game looks awful
these are not the first official images there was screens on N4G what like over a week ago showing the first screens
That people here feel they know everything from looking at charcter models and various screens. Alot of these look great. I think people need to take off their anti-wii sunglasses and look again. You cannoth possibly tell me you can judge a games atmosphere or mood from character models and screenshots. In the end it's the storytelling, music and gameplay that determines how a game really feels. Though i need to stop reading comments from these people on this game. It's okay all the games that kick ass for 360 and ps3 are coming to wii 2 anyhow the second it comes out. So maybe there will be a directors cut for wii 2 to appease all you whiny hd kids.
what's even worse. HD wasn't even a requirement until MSFT and Sony told them it was. HD was just another step in gaming. I try to tell my nephews about games like zelda oot, mario 64, ff7, skies of arcadia, half life. First thing out they mouth is those games don't look; and I have to remind them you're looking at these games from a 2009 perspective. Stop counting pixels and actually play the games and judge the gameplay, etc,.
blah, yes graphics are overrated when it comes to gameplay, but the wii is a horrible horrible system. I find it funny that you bring up old games to your nephews yet you sit here and defend the wii. The wii is easily one of the worst consoles of all time. Nintendo not only dropped the ball, they tripped over their feet at the 1 yard line and fell on their face. Yes the consoles are selling like hotcakes but at what cost? 90% of the games on the console are complete garbage and motion controls have not panned out the way people expected it to. Sure they work good for metroid prime but everything else is a waggle fest. The wii blows. Buy your nephews a super nintendo if you want them to get associated with classic nintendo gaming.
am i the only one that finds it a little crazy that wii-only owners are hyped for a mickey mouse game? not to mention the game looks like rayman 2.
