    It's a good game for smaller children. I don't think kids older then 12 will find a challenge in this game.
    Allthough it has ( very little ) replay value. It's a bit easy to get through every thing.

    I played around 7~8 hours and finished it with a bit off a challenge. Only so my kids could see mickey jump and save the day....If it was me, I'd buy it if she has the galaxy allready. Otherwise go mario!

    What were they thinking, not simply allowing the camera to be controlled by pointing around? I mean you can do it with the Dpad so why not just have the camera swivel when u hit the edge of the screen with the cursor? would be infinitely better. And for a semi-high-profile game with a mickey mouse license, the cutscenes sure are shithouse. I can see what they were going for, but...yeah not so much. It feels like there was the original artstyle they came up with, the one the menus are done in all wet dripping paint n stuff (as were the original awesome-looking concept drawings), then they dropped most of that look for the in-game environments and mickey, then the cutscenes are this other style again, oldschool cartoony...kindof...but not really. Well except for the opening cutscene, which is 3d animation...pick a god-damn style. That opening intro is pretty cool overall; just makes the first cutscene u get to a bit later seem that much more lame.

    But I'm dissing it pretty hard I guess, I dunno it just feels like it's been in development for a fair while with lots of hype, it has a good pedigree, yet it's just missing all this polish it needs, and consistency..

    the game itself seems cool if pretty dated/derivative, I like the premise/main concept though of the paint and thinner (not that it's strikingly original or anything), but it's fun painting things in and out of existence...level design has certainly not wowed me yet but I'm not far in at all...hope the later puzzles get good and they aren't just difficult because it's so difficult/painful to look around and/or because the design is obtuse..we'll see

    didn't really mean to be quite that harsh, I'll prolly play a bit more of it

    Be prepared to be frustrated... ( camera not moving, pencil not shooting where the cursor is, meaningless repeative cutscenes, etc, etc...) I agree on the concept thing. First they make you impressed by showing off the intro story movie, then they swap to a ( ugly) cheap flash drawnig style kind of story telling. TOTAL CRAP! It's a little misleading. The game entertains but, the predictable gameplay and level design makes this game lose points...
    It's a little of everything but not very original. But what would we have to expect? Since when does Disney make good games? Well, this is no conception.

    The main reason this game has high expectations compared to most games published by Disney is because it was Designed/developed by Warren Spector and his studio.

    Great game for kids, my biggest gripe besides the level of difficulty and camera controls, is the fact that most of the dialogue in-game is written and not spoken, which I guess is good for encouraging kids to read, but it just feels cheap in this day and age. There was 500mb+ left available on the disc, should have been enough space to fully voice the entire game.

    Was looking forward to it more than any game this year but after playing for about 2 hours I'm not sure I'll ever even play it again. Biggest disappointment of the year for me. 3.5/10 to 4/10 would be my score so far. Atleast Epic Yarn and GoldenEye are good and I'm sure DKCR will be great

    EDIT: I think I get the game now and I also understand why people are hating it so much. The game seems to be a very linear platformer with each area having a ton of stuff to do without telling you what there is to do. Once you finish an area you can't go back to it and the game considers everything you did in the previous area and decides what it'll let you do in the next area based off it. The game will follow this scheme from the very start to finish and at the end it'll consider everything that you did and decide the ending based on it. I havn't played the game again since I got this idea in my head but it seems to be how it's working and if it is how the game works I expect I'll end up enjoying it a fair a bit.

    nah, as soon as you arrive in the fuirst real hub (waste land) its not like this anymore. But even with this, its not better than 5-6 of 10.

    Damn... All I can say is damn. I'm gunna start a new save today I think and try to play it more openminded and see if I end up liking it

    EDIT: Played it some more but decided not to start a new save and to just keep going with it. I LOVE the 2D cutscenes and they are packed with so much emotion that I'm getting quite engaged in the story. The gameplay is quite flawed but for the excellent art direction and storytelling I'd bump my score up to atleast a 6/10

    I agree with a lot of the earlier posts. I was hoping this game could be the next Mario Galaxy but it definitely isn't. It is a solid platformer but is not amazing.

    Over 5 hours in a loving it now. I thought the game was god awful for the begining but if you play the game really open mindedly you can actually be quite moved by the story. It's very average as a game but as a work of art it's incredible. Amazing art direction, a great score, and storytelling better than almost any other game this year.
