5.0 out of 5 stars The greatest 3ds game ever!, December 14, 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion 3DS is an awesome platformer game. I just finished playing it and now my nephew is playing it every day. Jam packed with charm, wit, beautiful sprites and engaging game play.

Art:
It's simply a joy to look at. The art and sprites are faithful to Disney style and just beautifully done. Each Disney character (from Mickey to Cinderella, to Ariel to Aladdin to Scrooge) is fully realized and looks just like they should, if you know what mean!

Design/Game Mechanics:
What people don't realize is that the paint and thinner game mechanic is kinda optional. You don't have to paint and thin everything out, it's just part of the fun. Get over it people! Even if it slows you down occasionally, it allows you to appreciate the gorgeous artwork. It may be a little frustrating in the 3rd wing/world as it's rather challenging, but persevere with it as it's totally worth your time and play. The pacing is just right.

Music:
The music composition is world class - catchy, fitting, a modern take on some of the tunes from the original Castle of Illusion, orchestral sounding and very true to classic Disney soundtracks.

Length:
Forget what the reviews say, it takes a good 8 hours to finish the game and then you have the options to go and do side quests, shop, use level system too so the game length is hours longer. What's nice about this is, you're in total control of how you play the game. In addition, it has great replay value. I can't wait to go back to the Fortress and do more side quests.

Ending:
Completely awesome! I'm not sure people know this but there are over 20 different endings depending on the Disney characters you rescue, so basically each character you rescue has his/her own unique ending. So cool!

Overall:
Don't let the mixed reviews stop you from giving this game a go. Whether you're a fan of the original Castle of Illusion starring Mickey Mouse, or you're a fan of Disney, or just a young kid looking for a great game to sink your teeth into, you will not be disappointed. Power of Illusion 3DS is a unique, delightful, charming and fun game to play. A nice alternative to all the mindless shooting games on the market. Fast shipping on Amazon, so get it!
