Way back when Epic Mickey came out on current generation consoles, I had really mixed feelings about it. I figured that it was going to be a child like game, considering the subject matter, but it actually ended up being a pretty big hit across the board. People liked how the developers managed to incorporate an interesting enough story about a character who has been along so long while also making it so the game itself had interesting enough gameplay to keep the player occupied throughout. While Epic Mickey was by no means a GoTY contender, it was still a fun game in its own light. This got me really excited to try the new Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two demo.
Before actually playing the demo, I went ahead and watched the four new videos that Disney released over the past 3 weeks, and you can totally see their influence in it. I would imagine that Disney was doing this on purpose to build up hype for the demo, but I mean, who knows. The demo starts off with a lot of story, catching you up on what is going on in the cartoon world. The villain from the first game is back, but he has turned a new leaf, and actually wants to help you save the world. It’s a bit unorthodox, but it works. After you get caught up, the game thrusts you into Mickey’s world where you must get the paint brush back, which was actually easier than I thought it would be. You would think that after the wizard guy got his brush stolen once, he would put it on extreme lockdown or something. Nope, Mickey just walks up and steals it again;
That little bugger. From there, the demo is mostly gameplay. The demo does a good job of getting you some experience with both Oswald and Mickey, since using the two together is going to be one of the big parts of Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two. Though, I will say that it would have made more sense if I actually had someone alongside me playing rather than having Oswald just do everything himself. It confused the hell out of me at some points because I didn’t know what he was doing. After playing the demonstration, the playing of the games is excellent through the people. The games can be downloaded on the personal computer and mobile phone of the people. Game Download option is provided to the people to have benefits in games. The experience of the people will become pleasant and effective.
Overall, I really enjoyed the Epic Mickey: The Power of Two demo. While the platforming is nothing really special, and even seems to have its difficulties, it was actually enjoyable to play. The controls flowed quite nicely, and I only had a few difficulties when it came to figuring out how to use the paint and thinner. I think that the story is going to be one of the main selling points, mostly because of how iconic Mickey is in general. I don’t think anyone would be against seeing the heroic little mouse go on more adventures. Has the demo made me any more excited for Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two? Yeah, I would say that it has. I’m always up for a good platforming title, and playing one that stars one of my favorite cartoon characters just makes it even better. For anybody who has even a slight interest in the game, I suggest checking out the demo.
