    Thanks, Chris. I've had a Wii for about a year now and this is the first game I'm buying for it. It won't just be a $200 Netflix machine anymore!

    This is the most positive (and I have to say the best) review of Epic Mickey I have read. I think you were a little forgiving with the camera and platforming. I'm sorry, but Epic Mickey is NOT the best platformer of the year. SMG 2 is the best platformer of the year, and perhaps the best 3-D platformer ever made. Epic Mickey's controls simply aren't tight enough. That said, this game is truly one of the best wii games of the year. Great review.

    Dear Mr. Antista, I am also an animation nerd and Disney fanboy who also loves 3D platformers, and I can honestly say, this game is a godsend. Sincerely, Superdude22.

    Sorry Chris, that camera is more then a little irritating. Warren can defend it all he likes, but it doesn't change the fact that it isn't just a little clunky, its broken. Minor mechanics should of been fixed. For example, I'm on one of the planes in the Grimlin Village in Its A Small World. I'm just standing, and slightly amused that mickey stays still as the ride rotates, when I slip off the plane, due to lack of Mickey rotating, and when I try to climb up, I fall off because the camera wouldn't move behind me. I shouldn't have to fight the camera, its slow movement, and the puzzles at the same time. Love the 2D Platforming, hate the camera in the 3D enough to make me quite in frustration. I really love the concept, but this bun needed some more time in the oven. (And I don't care how much you like performers, using a Rare game as an example doesn't work. Their cameras where just as bad.)

    Thank you Chris, for giving this game such an honest review. I am absolutely in agreement with you! I think people's frustrations about the game itself may come from their differing game subject preferences, a fact that definitely affects a game's mechanics and story progression structure. As a Disney Nerd myself (I still want to be an animator), I was really gratified about how you can float around this fantasy world and get as involved as your imagination wants to, like the first time you went to Disneyland and took a look around you. I think the first time I went there I was so dissapointed that it wasn't an actual real living, breathing place, I cried! This game goes straight to the heart of this desire and gives you all of that, plus a great cartoon past background that makes you imagine that that world never actually ends. The only thing I would have added was making the 2-D reel in-between worlds shake in the same way that those ones did so often, but I suppose that might have made the difficulty level a little too frustrating. Great review, Kudos for liking a NON-blood and gore game so much, and, might we get a Epic Mickey 2 or 3?
