First reviews are saying the game is not what was expected.

-Broken rhythm thanks to constant stylus painting/thinning

  • 8 to 10 hours but half of them of backtracking
  • Later levels full of cheap deaths and ridiculous difficulty.
  • Lame story

It seems like Dreamrift has repeated the same errors that made Monster Tale an average game and added some of Henry Hatswroth's to round things up.

Good job.

This game had the potential to be a 10 had they completely ditched the Flow breaking Stylus Painting/thinning and got rid of the bucket load of text, because other wise at least in terms of the actual platforming and graphical presentation, it feels like a fantastic follow up to Castle of Illusion...It's even better because of the power jump, StereoScopic 3D and of course better graphics. Too bad it's drenched in unnecassary stylusc ontrols and uninteresting chatter.

Also, Later levels full of cheap deaths and ridiculous difficulty? Now I'm even more interested.lol

7.0 from IGN.
The only main problem with it is that it's too short.

Actually, that's Queen Grimhilde, but I guess after hiding under a boulder for decades, one would be forgotten. /rimshot

Bah, forget Power of Illusion I'm getting Adventure Time
Really though, the paint/thinning stylus mechanic only seems to work well or seems to be more convenient if you have a 3DS XL due to the none retractable stylus(which is akward pulling out of the original 3DS and having to extend it while the game is on) 'and' stylus placement.

Had this game ditched a lot of the dialogue, got rid of the Stylus painting, had more stages & bosses it would of probably been a winner.
Because as is, it looks beautiful, sounds fantastic, plays great and captures that whimsical charming & enchanting feel of the Disney.

Got this and Epic Mickey 2 yesterday, so far I'm enjoying the 3DS game more (got up to the second wing of the Castle).
I like that the original Megadrive sound effects remain, also that the first stage has the same tune as the first level of Castle of Illusion. I've so far not found the paint thinning thing to be annoying, I really like what I've played up to now.

It's really hard to see which age group they were aiming for. With all the heavy dialog it might not appeal to children as much. Older kids and adults might not mind that as much but the painting to quite a few seems really annoying. I for one don't mind it as much as was said above. Also I can't see how this even looks all that great on a 3ds. It rather tiny on my XL so can't imagine how much smaller it would look. Of course it will sell by the boatloads just from name alone but many might be a little disappointed come Christmas this year. I still want it well because I have XLs. . However ill wait for bargain bin prices.

Was going to get this, but I've heard it's pretty short so I've decided to get Scribblenauts Unlimited instead. However, if I ever find this game on sale I'll try and pick it up. I loved the demo, I just don't want to pay the full price for a fairly short game.

It's a great game while it last but it just not long enough to justify the price, its the only 3ds game so far I've felt like I didn't get my money's worth

I have this and it is amazing. Brings back memories from playing Castle of Illusion and has the Epic Mickey feel to it.

This game has only three problems for me, first, its simply too short. Second the second or third stage at world three was nigthmare-ish hard compared to the rest of the game, and finaly spoiler warning the ending with Mickey saying goodby to everyone is filled with bad jokes.
