Disney Epic Mickey 2 is out and available for all game machines, and my kids were pretty excited to be selected to give it a try. This is the first game that I’ve known to be as a type of “musical,” but it’s staying true to Disney’s musical past.
Mickey and Oswald hook up as partners in Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two. Mickey has his paintbrush that he can apply and control both paint and thinner. Oswald has his almighty remote that allows him to command electricity.
It kind of reminded me of Sonic at first, where your “pal” follows you around. The only difference is that you can’t switch out characters with a button like in Sonic. BUT in Epic Mickey 2, in hard spots you can push the circle button and Oswald will fly into the sky- you press X and Mickey will hop on his tail and he will help you across.
When you enter into a new “dimension” of this game, the characters will add more to the story by busting out in song that has all original music and lyrics. You go into “Wasteland” where you run into the MAD Dr. and he promised that he has learned his lesson of destroying the town after earthquakes tear up the town.
Wielding the paintbrush, Mickey roams around the town trying to fix the town up. There are also smaller quests that you can do by walking into stores, restaurants, and camera shops and such and talking to people.
The kids thought it was fun. Everyday when my son goes to school Adisyn asks me to play this. She has never had a game for her before, so she was super excited. It’s a little hard for her because she’s 3, but she asks me to help when she can’t go any further.
Oswald has never spoke until this game, he will have the voice from the famous Scooby Doo.
Disney fans, gamers and parents can buy Disney Epic Mickey 2 at $59.99 for PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U, $49.99 for Wii and PC/MAC and $39.99 for Nintendo 3DS.
