From the Manufacturer
| Disney Epic Mickey is an action-adventure platforming game for Wii™ console that sends Mickey Mouse on an epic journey of creativity and discovery. As Mickey, the player is propelled into Wasteland, an alternate world made up of Disney's forgotten creative efforts, and is given the power to wield paint and paint thinner to dynamically change the world while determining Mickey's path to becoming an epic hero. Through the use of this unique paint and paint thinner, the key components of animation and Mickey's tools for impacting his world, players will have the ability to shape how the story unfolds as they discover the concept of "Playstyle Matters" - an innovative style of gameplay created by Disney Interactive Studios' Junction Point, led by industry luminary Warren Spector, where players creatively tackle different challenges in the world to explore all the possibilities and storylines - but with consequences for their chosen actions. |

Oddly, my biggest complaint for this, a Disney brand video game, is just how dark it is. The game DOES have your typical Disney happy ending (well, unless you blow all side missions, in which case it's actually possible to get a lot of depressing endings for those side missions/characters), but my main issue is just aesthetically how dark it is. I understand the intent of creating a dark anti-Disneyworld, but it just gets unpleasant straining to see through all the dark vistas and black/purple colour schemes. Nothing really comes alive the way Disney should.
Secondly, it's quite repetitive. For some absurd reason (I think laziness) the designers didn't design more than a few types of items you have to collect on missions. So people are ALWAYS losing books. Everyone randomly has "Power Sparks" to hand over. And that's about it.
Thirdly, the lack of voice acting is inexcusable! The director (Warren Spector) has excused this elsewhere with a lame combination of "Silent cartoon stars" and "Mickey doesn't sound like a hero," but it's total balderdash. Mickey is obviously the heroic type, as evidenced not only by the game itself but by the myriad references to his past successes found within. And if they were concerned about Oswald the Lucky Silent Rabbit getting a voice, an imaginative game designer might have found a funny way to have him be the only silent character in the game.
Complaints aside, it IS fun to play as Mickey in a quite good platformer, and the Disney nods found all over the place are good for a chuckle. Too bad more effort wasn't put into the game though.
