Well, after playing this game for a while, I'm not sure if I can keep playing. It just isn't my thing.

How much time have you put into it? Because if you've put a decent amount of time into it I'd really encourage you to stick it out till the end. The end, truly, is one of the best I've seen, and really made the game worth it for me.

@Kid_A
I've gotten to Tomorrow City, and just stopped playing after that. I still have the game, and I might consider playing it until the end, but so far this just isn't my type of game. The fetch quests and paint mechanic are the things that I don't like. I just found the game to be boring. I'm not saying it's a bad game, it's just not for me.

Tomorrow City is by far my favorite level, so if that's not doing it for you I'd say you're probably not going to enjoy the rest of the game too much. And I agree that the fetch-questing is irritating and really throws off the pace of the game. You gave it a fair shot, I don't blame you.

But I absolutely love this game. I've already started my second playthrough--which I highly recommend to anyone who has beaten the game once. The level of depth in this game is insane; it doesn't really all reveal itself the first time around, but once you hop in a second time and change your play-style, you'll be amazed at the amount of work that went into this game.

Stupid homework. :( It's greatly hindered the time I've been able to put into this game. :(

@Kid_A: I really appreciate your impressions, but I have a few questions to ask.

1. Does the game have any easter eggs or homages to modern Disney movies and cartoons, or is it mainly dedicated to the classic Walt-era Disney? Obviously it has the classic aspect in mind, but I just wonder if it has anything beyond The Jungle Book.

2. How's the music? Does it really sound like Disney music?

3. Are the boss battles good and do all have an affect on the story?

1. There are a few homages to more recent Disney affairs, but they're pretty minor. You're not going to see any Lion King or Princess and the Frog in there. This is mostly because the whole story revolves around "forgotten" Disney characters. The more recent stuff is too...well, recent to be "forgotten," you know?

2. The music is spectacular, and it definitely sounds like Disney music. It's fully orchestrated, and while it's mostly all original, you'll occasionally catch a few bars of popular Disney tunes tucked in there if you listen closely ;) I will say they've taken a few queues from Banjo-Kazooie, though.

3. The boss battles are, for the most part, awesome. There's always multiple ways to defeat them, and how you choose to do so definitely impacts the story; sometimes in huge ways. This is a game you'll want to play through at least twice (in fact you'll have to if you want to collect everything)

@Kid_A - Did you get the collector's edition of Epic Mickey? The figurine that comes with the collector's edition
is pretty good quality.

Possible Spoiler - Is there anyway to deactivate that mechanical bot that protects rocket in Tomorrow City with paint?

No I didn't get the special edition, but now I kind of wish I would have. And regarding that robot--nope, you have to use thinner. It doesn't impact the morality system at all though, so you won't be stuck with a bad ending if you use thinner on enemies that need it.

I'm tempted to agree with you. Because you really don't get a grasp of how well designed this game is until you play through it twice with different playstyles. But if you hated the game the first time, another round probably won't change much.

I think that just one playthrough is all you can reasonably ask of any reviewer who's writing for the average joe. a review hosted on a Mickey Mouse/Disney fansite, sure, tell them they should play through it twice before judging whether they like it or not, but in terms of IGN, Gamespot, and here at NL, once is just fine IMO.

I have another random question: No spoilers please, but do any of the endings leave it open for a sequel? I KNOW they could fix all these problems but storywise I don't want them to just squeeze another one out when there isn't much left to work with.

Well, with most games I'd say that's quite true. But this game is definitely an exception: for this game to be fully appreciated, it really does help to play through it twice, to get a better sense of how your playstyle truly does matter. I don't think it's exactly practical when it comes to timeliness, since most people want to read a review or two before they pick up a game, but I see what he's getting at.

@Kid_A: if i'm going to play a game through once i'd better enjoy it. i'm not going to play all the way through something I hate just because the second playthrough is supposed to be mindblowingly amazing, and I'd like for a review to tell me straight-up how it's going to be during that first playthrough instead of blowing apologist smoke up my rear and telling me it's so much better the second time through. No offense, I understand you enjoyed it very much, but other games do exist that are excellent from front to back, playthrough after playthrough; i'm not going to waste a whole lot of my time (and full retail price) on this if it's just going to be a giant chore to slog through. :3

Judging from the sounds of it, the reviewers on IGN, Gamespot, GameTrailers, and mayber even NL actually did play it at least twice. Just saying.

No I hear ya. I think I said that in a previous post, too--if the first play through just didn't do it for you, a second go-round isn't either. But if anyone is kind of conflicted in their opinions of the game after their first playthrough (which a lot of people are) I'd say give it another run through. Like I said, I don't think reviewers should be forced to because that's just not practical.

I got Epic Mickey earlier than expected. :)

Here are my impressions so far:

This is such a cool game!

Ok, I'll expand on that:

I think the level design is excellent. I like how bright and colorful the game is. I also like the whole Paint & Thinner aspect. Its so much fun painting in stuff and also getting rid of stuff. I like the decisions you have to make in the game. Oh and the game is NOT easy. Well, at least not for me. lol. Some of the jumping parts are tricky. Of course, yes, the camera is not great. I do agree with that part of the reviews so far. But the story, the paint/thinning, the platforming, the characters, etc are all really fun. And yes, I even like the fetch quests. What can I say? I'm a rpg fan! I live for the fetch quests. I like that you can go back to areas you've been before and complete quests. The role playing element is awesome imo. Epic Mickey is so much more than just a platformer. Its an Adventure game. I don't think most reviews understand that. Most of the reviews I've read see the game as a platformer. Its not. There is platforming, but there's also quests, talking to characters, investigating the landscape, etc. And I gotta say, I love that I'm already thinking, " Yes, next playthrough I'm going to do this." or " That." Lots of replay for this game!

So, ya, the game is not perfect, but I have to say that I'm having more fun with this game than I've had with any other game lately. Well, you know, LittleBigPlanet 2 is not out yet. sigh But Epic Mickey is a really good game imo. Its way too early for me to review it or anything, but I have a feeling that my "score" is going to be higher then the average review I've read of the game. :)

I can't wait to play more tomorrow! Oh man.

After putting more hours into it, the game gets definitely more interesting. Im getting used to the mechanics as well and the camera isnt bothering much now. If were talking about combinations, it reminds me of Banjo Kazooie, with little bit of Zelda and even Deus Ex! 2D levels are still little boring, but only the one's you have to go trough several times. Otherwise they're neat and reeking with references to the cartoon they're based on. Oh, and you can also unlock a Oswald cartoon!

Also, the little enemies in Tomorrow City are wearing Tron-suits. Thats an awesome reference in my book!

Stop the hate today and learn to love games!
