This review is from: Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two - Nintendo Wii (Video Game)
In terms of what's there, this game is pretty good. I didn't find the camera or AI issues quite as troublesome as some, though getting individual quests or tasks to advance can be absurdly finicky at times. But, now that Junction Point is shuttered, ex-staffers are confirming that Epic Mickey 2 is unfinished: that they experienced a mad crunch as the deadline approached, and roughly half of the planned game was jettisoned while a crude, slapped-together ending was quickly substituted in its place. If anyone is wondering why they are still wandering around the game after the final boss fight, why there are so many weird unresolved plot threads, why there are weird false starts and mixed messages after the final credits roll, and why there is no closure at all, this is why. The original took around 10-12 hours of gameplay to finish, this one can be done in under three. It's not just a poor or unsatisfying game, its a game that is incomplete, missing a huge chunk of its gameplay.
