Everybody makes mistakes
Junction Point's Disney Epic Mickey is finally out and racking up some favourable reviews, but one bugbear appears in the majority of reviews: the camera system, which has drawn the criticism of many.

With a figure, DVD and Remote faceplate

Inside the special packaging sits a 5" vinyl figure of Mickey wielding his...
In a world where one mouse can make a difference...
Are we tired of Disney Epic Mickey yet? No, we're not. Although Nintendo's latest release schedule didn't pin down the mouse for a solid release date, this first part of the game's introductory movie should take out the sting a little. Showing the mouse in full mischief mode, the video shows how...
How's the rodent romp shaping up?
Disney Epic Mickey was a big hit at E3 2010, atoning for its earlier disappointing screenshots with a more refined graphical style and a gameplay system described as "playstyle matters" by Warren Spector. We got the chance to give the rodent a run-out at a recent event, and came away with admittedly mixed feelings. Taking on one of the 3D action-adventure..

E3 2010 might be remembered for the big names associated with Nintendo but let's not forget another big player in the company-mascot game. Ever since its initial announcement, the return of Mickey Mouse has been the source of anticipation and intrigue thanks in part to the apparent darker direction that the game will be taking. Epic Mickey was..

Rumours suggest graphics could change
It's been a few months since we last heard anything about Epic Mickey, the Warren Spector-led reinvention of the little mouse, but apparently that's for good reason. According to the latest Internet rumours, we could be seeing a very different Mickey emerge at E3 this month. Whilst the original artwork showed off a dark, lean look, the first screenshots had a..
Also includes a dash of Okami and a pinch of Deus Ex

Warren Spector is a big Disney fan, but as..

It's a three-minute time-lapse video (shortened from a half-hour) and showcases a rather traditional-looking Mickey facing off against one of his new enemies - an evil robot..
Game Informer spills a few beans
It sure is a good time to be a Disney and Nintendo fan. Not only do DS gamers now have their hands on a new Kingdom Hearts game, Wii owners will be getting in on a new House of Mouse exclusive: Epic Mickey.
