Don't listen to bias of 'professional' reviewers. Give it a chance.,

This review is from: Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two - Playstation 3 (Video Game)
First, I'm a Disney fan, live near DW and have an annual pass. Everything Disney puts out isn't good in my opinon though. Far from it. If this game sucked, I'd be angry that I paid for it and would post a bad review. I'd also like to consider myself a hard core gamer. I have every current system including handhelds. I play a lot of games. This one is a good game despite the bad rap it has gotten.
It's as good if not better than the 1st. Tons of stuff to find and explore. It has some qualities that are frustrating and certainly isn't GOTY material. so be it. The AI of your partner is bad at times. I can name off two very excellent games where it was the same business though they are older. Resident Evil 5 (she would waste precious ammo shooting at bosses that couldn't be harmed with reg. weapons) and Gears of War 1 ( Dom was bad. really bad.) This is just a couple examples of problems with great games. Very few games are flawless. How about Skyrim? One giant bug with a game wrapped inside. How about Borderlands 2? I have personally experienced bad issues with this game as many others have. I learn to look past things and enjoy the game.
I feel that Disney didn't pay people off OR most of the 'professional' game reviewers are peeved about Disney buying up their childhood and adolescence. With Marvel and Star Wars, they basically bought mine. Disneyland kinect also suffered bad pro reviews and it's an awesome game. Best for Kinect in my opinon. I recommend that anyone Disney fan or not, to pick it up. There's really no other game out there like the Epic Mickey games.
nice campaign, tons of extra stuff to do, works awesome with Move, very unique level and art design.
bad AI, camera issues, graphics not great.
UPDATE: I was only mentioning titles aimed at adults instead of kids. I forgot about the Lego games which I'm a huge fan of. How about that AI? EVERY single one I've ever played has glitches galore and every one (except LOTR which I just got) has caused my Xbox to freeze.
UPDATE: and of course Lego LOTR caused my Xbox to freeze the 2nd day i was playing it. It's also a brand new slim. How about the jumping in that game? a lot more frustrating than the jumping in epic mickey in my opinion....
