    I'm posting this here because I found it to be quite interesting. A lot of reviews of this seem to indicate the same general feeling of "meh" towards the game (however it's doing better than the console games) and to be honest look at footage I kinda feel the same.

    It's not the usual review, it's done in a comic strip style so head on over there and take a look.

    I've recently gone through the games this is inspired by and well they've not aged as well as other platformers from that era that is for sure! Another case of nostalgia over actual content. :(

    To be honest, I agree with them. I tried out the demo, and it really did feel bland. And the switching of top and bottom screen was just horrible.

    Yeah, should have been a cheaper eShop title.

    I vote all reviews be done in that fashion, absolutely everywhere.

    I admit that the drawing minigames are lame. But I think it's a passable game. It's no Henry Hatsworth, like the comic explains, nor is it Monster Tale calibre, but I do like it.

    My notoriety at GBATemp has no bearing on my opinion, btw. I don't know who you are either.

    Well then, I can't blame on others opinions.
    But at the same time I don't know what you damn like about this game ;)

    Couldn't agree more with this review.
    All of my friends are loving this game, and really,
    it pains me to see people blind by nostalgia.

    Sad to see that Epic Mickey is struggling to live up to its title.

    Aww, alright. I can't play (physically) at the moment, so I haven't even checked the eshop for a while.

    It pains me to see people blinded by their hatred of being blinded by nostalgia. :P
