We were sent Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two PS3 game to review just before Christmas and I’ve finally got around to posting my review of it… what with being poorly over Christmas blogging and reviewing has had to take a bit of a back seat! It does mean that Maisie has had a good few weeks to play Epic Mickey so we can give you our honest opinions of the game
Mickey Mouse returns partnering with Oswald The Lucky Rabbit as they embark on a new trip to the Wastelands, with two-player co-op coming to Disney Epic Mickey for the first time!
Filled with fun theme park attractions to explore and long-lost Disney characters to meet, Wasteland now offers a host of new puzzle and platform challenges based on classic Disney cartoons, and how you play the game will affect the way the story ends.
There’s also a musical element, where original songs advance the story, and the music will change as you play, creating a unique soundtrack for your Disney Epic Mickey 2 adventure!
Maisie was really excited about receiving this game as she loves all things Disney. However it is recommended for ages 7 and over and Maisie is 6 – she has spent a good few hours playing on it and really enjoyed it although she has found it hard and at first she was disappointed with the dark feeling to it and how it is set in wasteland! Maisie is very girlie so if it had been set in Cinderella’s princess castle then she would be in her element Nonetheless she is really enjoying working her way through it, it has got put to one side over Christmas with us all being poorly but she has picked it up again now and I think the more she plays the more she enjoys it as she ‘get’s it’ all the more!
I have really enjoyed being able to go and pick up the controller and join her on her Epic journey! I love that I can just drop in at any time and help her out if she needs it (not that I’m any good at video games – Not since Super Mario way back on the first Nintendo anyway lol)
Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two is available to buy on Wii, WiiU, 3DS, PS3 or Xbox 360 from Game - I think ages 8-12 year old will enjoy this the most.
