IGN: Epic Mickey Review

Mickey Mouse just isn't the icon he used to be. Though once the star of countless animated films and shorts (and even several great video games) Mickey has seen his reputation slowly taken away. He is featured in fewer stories and on more merchandise these days, almost becoming more of a corporate symbol than a living, breathing character capable of supporting a grand adventure...

Not exactly the score I was hoping for but it seems solid nonetheless. Between this, Donkey Kong, Kirby, Cave Story and Mario Galaxy the Wii has been a great home for platformers this year. Pity Super Meat Boy didn't make the party on-time.

I dont see what the problem with an 8 is. It looks like a fantastic game and I can't wait to get my hands on it. An 8 is a very respectable score.

8 is great, was expecting higher, but it's still great.

Gotta say, the Wii is king of 8.0 scores this year lol. All their major releases seem to be varying 8.0 scores.

despair2045d ago

the 8 is not the problem its why it got an 8, even if it is IGN, I mean when the actually gameplay does not live up to the quality of the story and presentation, even the mechanics it really does suck. I started off very skeptical of this game but more I saw the better it looked, so for me the 8 score is disappointing.

"All their major releases seem to be varying 8.0 scores."

There, there, Galaxy 2. Don't cry. *I* won't forget you.

I wonder if this game is easy enough for my nephew to play it.

8/10 is not a game's problem. It's a gamer's problem, with their absurd standards.

"Not exactly the score I was hoping for but it seems solid nonetheless." /facepalm

visualb2045d ago (Edited 2045d ago )

come on. This gen has been saturated with 9's and 10's

8/10 on my book = if you can, BUY THIS GAME.

its for wii only, but its good to see a proper disney game that isn't kingdom hearts =)

@ PS360 - exactly

people expect all "good" gaems to get 9/10, and if it doesn't, its a "flop" or its "ok"

so what, 7/10 is a crappy game? then whats 5/10? unplayable?! then whats 4/10? broken? then where do 3,2 and 1 fit in?

its like the mentality is:

10/10 - awesome
9/10 - great
---- fails to meet day 1 quality standards----
8/10 - good
7/10 - ok
6/10 crap
5/10 broken

4,3,2,1 / 10 - doesn't exist -___-

IGN cant be pleased lately.

AngryFork2045d ago

Unless it's a 360 exclusive.

Dsnyder2045d ago

Or they get a nice big check lol.

Pirateogta2045d ago

What score would a game have to get for IGN to be "pleased" with it? "8.0 - Impressive" sounds pretty pleased to me.

ReservoirDog3162045d ago

It is better than every game getting an instant 10/10 though right?

Either way, can't wait to play this, on christmas.

RustedMan2045d ago (Edited 2045d ago )

I know in some weird way, had this game scored higher than Grand Turismo 5, someone would have the balls to compare the two.

EDIT: too bad I don't have a Wii, this game looks...gasp..unique. and original. and fun.

T9X692045d ago

Well they did give the new NFS Hot Pursuit a higher score.

despair2045d ago

and very soon I'll be in a perfect position to compare the two, well to the PC NFS anyway, and if my GT5 copy will just be delivered already. But that's off topic though :)

the game looks great, it reminds me like Kingdom Hearts that you can have a pretty damn cool and even at times a badass Mickey Mouse.

christheredhead2045d ago

there have been a ton of great wii titles in the past few months and im glad the game scored pretty good. hopefully ill have some cash to buy this as soon as possible.
