Epic Mickey 2 has that unique Disney charm to it, with wonderful musical notations and cheerful cut-scenes. It's light heartened and each and every character you meet is full to the brim with enthusiasm, even if they feel a little forgotten.
What lets Epic Mickey 2 down is the game bits in between. The camera angle is frustrating, leaving you helpless judging depths and distances in some areas. The added touch screen features don't work that well, and you'll quickly find yourself reverting back to old fashioned buttons. For me the visual prowess isn't anything to be shouting about. Oswald's AI is also extremely annoying. He often idles, so getting him to activate a contraption is a tedious task to say the least.
By no means is Epic Mickey 2 a bad game; it's cheerful and enjoyable at its core even given its flaws.
