Disney Epic Mickey isn’t called anything else, gets reviews

Don’t call it Epic Mickey, for God’s sake. Walt’ll come out of cryogenesis and freeze your ass.

Disney Epic Mickey’s reviews have gone live. We were told yesterday that we’re supposed to call it Disney Epic Mickey and not Epic Mickey, because Lord only knows what would happen if we did that. It’s not as if everyone in games in the entire world ever’s been calling it Epic Mickey for years, or anything.

Epic Mickey, then. Developed by Junction Point, made for Wii, out this week. See what the web thinks below. If you have a score, pop it in the comments and we’ll add it at our leisure.

The platformer launches in Europe today, the UK tomorrow and North America on November 30.

    It’s that time of year when high profile games get lukewarm reviews with high scores.

    Disney’s need to putt it’s company name infront of everything little thing it does is incredibly stupid.

    Comming out on Disney Blu-Ray, Disney DVD, Disney Digital Downlaod, Disney Digital 3D.
    Are these things different then the industrie standard? Did Disney invent them?? No, they are just being retarted.

    /rant over, normal programing will now resume.

    At least you can call it Epic Mickey. In Germany they named it Mickey Epic!

    The reviews I’ve read seem in line with what I’ve been thinking about the game. Great story, design and wealth of concept but weak on the moment to moment gameplay like combat and platforming.

    Still high on my rental list, I would buy it if I had the money.

    Hmm. Going to have to read a few of these, I think.

    Actually, screw that – I’ll watch the GameTrailers video review. :-D

    Hmmm looks like the dust stays on the Wii for now.

    I’m still interested in getting this, mostly for my son, but it will have to wait a bit I guess…

    So, how long before Warren announces that he’s leaving or Disney announce that they’re getting rid of Junction Point? :-(

    I’m expecting my copy to arrive with the damn free shirt today or tomorrow :)
    Forgetting reviews, I’m sure those who remember playing Mickey Mania should enjoy this – though that’s Jaffe and this is Spector (both decent devs).

    I watched the GT review and it looks absolutely awesome, the only downers are the platforming and fighting, but even that looks pretty fine to me in the gameplay footage they show. The atmosphere looks great, the characters look great. The whole idea of the brush looks to be great. I hear the game is also quite long, nice!!!!

    I’ll add this one to my collection sometime soon.

    It was always going to be a 7.5-8 type game. Anyone who thought more is just some hype monkey.

    The Steamboat Willie level shown months ago just looked incredibly dull/easy platforming-wise.

    I agree, i didn’t find that one all that fun looking neither, and i wasn’t sure what kind of reviews to expect. But at the end of the day i only care for what i think about it. And what they shown during the GT review looked like heaps of fun to me. :)
