After hearing that Epic Mickey 2 was a great improvement from the first game, I decided to give it another try and purchased it when I bought my Wii U.
Sadly, I am once again disappointed. The storyline seems non existent, and I find myself running in circles trying to figure out what in the world I'm supposed to be doing. Boss battles are the same way at times. Much trial and error attempting to figure out how to defeat different bosses. I've been a gamer for several years and rarely as lost in a game as I find myself in Epic Mickey 2.
Lag is still present, especially in the worlds that are wide open.
I've also experienced game freezing several times, including game freezing when loading a save file that caused me to have to start over from the beginning.
I agree that there is poor integration with the Wii U's touch screen. Nothing but a useless map and some menus. The game would work perfectly fine without it.
When I realize what's going on, it can be fun. The worlds are creative and colorful - exactly what you would expect from Disney, but the game-play cripples that.
Over all, this game is a mess and I wish I would have gone with another option.
It's playable and, at times, can be fun, but not enough to make this game worth owning.
