Not as Epic as you think.

Alright, so I recently managed to get my hands on Epic Mickey. With high hopes I rushed to my wii console and put the sucker inside. A few hours later I came out only to release the game just isn't as epic as it sounds. Now, let's start off with the most important part, the gameplay. The controls feel a bit stiff, aiming where you want to use your paint to fix or destroy obstacles that get in your way can be annoying at times, because it doesn't respond to where you want to aim all that well. The button layout feels awkward, I would often get confused on how to center the camera thinking that the Z button would do it, only to waste paint and realize it was C. Shaking the wiimote also has this slight unresponsiveness from time to time. While, 95% of the time my attacks would be effective from shaking it, 5% of the time it would not realize that I shook it only to take a cheap hit. It isn't game breaking but it is rather annoying. While the gameplay isn't anything great, the art design is fantastic, they managed to put some great effort into the cut scenes, and they managed to show off some great animation. While that may be the case though, the in-game graphics look decent, but it doesn't push the boundaries graphic wise. Then again, it doesn't need to, the game is very charming and it does a good job at sucking you in.
