I do have a few questions before we get the game though. I've been waning the Wii U version but after reading reviews, I'm not so sure.

-Are there real frame rate issues with the Wii U version?

-Does Mickey has to use the gamepad instead of a Wii remote, and if so, how are the controls (I ask this in part because I did play the original on the Wii, and I'm not sure how the paint brust would fell with a control stick instead of the Wii remote?

-Do you have a personal recommended version of this game?

I didn't play the first one but got number two last week when I got the U. Traded it in yesterday because after playing it for approx 2 hours I lost the will to live, I was that bored.

I've heard that same problem from other reviewers...I still want to chance it with us being pretty big Disney fans myself....just not sure which version to get. From the sounds of it, the Wii U version has been the worst....Wii or 360 then?

Just finished the Wii version and I really enjoyed it, about as much as the first. I'd say it's a bit shorter than the first game in getting to the final boss, but you can at least carry on afterward, which is a big plus in trying to complete it. It does have a few issues still - I'd hoped the camera would have been improved a bit more - but there are improvements to speak of as well, and it's just as charming as the first.

Hoping to try the Wii U version at some point - I've heard bad things, I'd just like to know for myself how much worse it is than the flagship version.

I don't know why this game is getting such hate round the web. I'm enjoying it very much on the Wii U.

It sucks you can't use the WiiMote and nunchuck when playing alone, though. The gamepad controls are fine, but not perfect. Aiming your paint or thinner stream can be difficult and the segments where you have to walk very slow are frustrating.

BUT, the rich world of the first game carries through. There's a ton to do in every scene and I find myself just slowly going through the game (I've had it since launch but only on Chapter 3) enjoying the scenery and the atmosphere.

Glad to hear it. I'm wanting to get the Wii U version honestly...the buggy issues i've heard of just scared me.
I did hear a friend that has the Wii U version say he was able to play as Mickey with the Wii remote when playing with someone else somehow actually. Don't know if it's true or not.

I just got it on Wii because.
A.There wasn't nothing new added to this version to extend length
B.The Wii version was half the price of the Wii U version.

Look forward to trying this on Christmas day,hopefully it isn't as bad what people say it is.

Also what are the musical songs like?

The game is way, WAY worse with the Wii U GamePad.
I'm getting this on the Wii despite the worse graphics, but at least it's fun to play.

I got it for the original Wii,and I'm pretty impressed with it.
I notice there was some frame-rate problems with the Wii version playing on the old Wii,but poping it into my Wii U,the problem went away.

So what's the deal with the paintbrush you can get for the wii and wii u version what does it actually do

I almost forgot about this game. I decided to rent the sequel on the Wii. Not sure why this is getting a lower score than the original. The Power of Two has improved on pretty much everything found in the original Epic Mickey. The first game had spots where the camera was locked and you couldn't reposition it. Which was just as annoying in Epic Mickey as it was in Mario Galaxy. I haven't seen any of that so far. The level design is better too--it feels more like what I'd expect from the guy who made Deus Ex. The platforming puzzles are better, you might actually have to stop and think where you need to use paint and where to use thinner. The fetch quests are more varied and fun. There's voice acting now like there should have been before. The pins you collect aren't worthless anymore. Mickey can finally interact with his environment. He has new ink power ups. Sketch abilities are more useful. There are alternate costumes. You also have a little bit more ability to backtrack. There are more game altering choices this time and they have lasting consequences. For example, I was asked to help clean up some thinner overflow. I took a shortcut and ended up destroying Ostown (now I know what it feels like to be British Petroleum). Another time I destroyed a shop's generator to get to a treasure chest. When the shop found out they decided to charge me double in the store from then on. And of course there's also co-op added in Epic Mickey 2.

There are things they kept, added, or scrapped from Epic Mickey that I don't like here too. Things like, singing. Also Mickey's actions no longer change his appearance. A lot of atmospheric music sounds like it's been ripped and reused from the first game and it feels like it's out of context at times. The projectors and side scrolling levels are back with a vengeance. Those oddly animated cut scenes that don't fit the rest of the game's CG style make a return. Autosaves . Lastly, I miss Mickey's goofy tiptoe animation.

All things considered, Epic Mickey 2 is really not a game that deserves a lower score than its predecessor unless you hate campy singing brightening up your wasteland. In which case, I feel you.

Nothing at all. I don't have one, but the paintbrush and Oswalt's remote are basically just a modded Nunchuck controller. It does the same thing, but looks cooler. Wouldn't mind getting one (Well, Oswalt's is all I can get due to WiiU version) but they're expensive. I love this game though. Wish it had off-screen play and split-screen multi-screen, but it's still amazing. Just as good as the first.

Is it true that you can use the classic controller with this game? According to Wikipedia you can, but I can't trust them.

Should I get this for the Wii or Wii U???

Only played the Wii U version but it's not that bad. It depends if you prefer Wii remote controls to GamePad, or if you care about HD.

In the end I decided on Wii U so I could experience Wasteland in HD.

This is such a huge 2-year bump and no one realize it :>

I'm a Danish gamer, but I mostly play on Nintendo hardware. I love gaming local co-op, and playing Mario Kart with my cousin (she's owning me btw!)
My favourite game franchises are Super Smash Bros. & Sly Cooper.
