Before I get started, I want to say that this was my first time playing any of the Epic Mickey
games and the first time I played any side-scrolling Mickey Mouse game. I started this demo with a clean slate, so to speak. I didnít have any previous attachment to the series, so I was going to pass up on this one. However, when I heard Nintendo put up a demo on the eShop yesterday, I decided to give it a shot, mostly because it is a platformer, but also because of the positive buzz it has received from various places. So how did it fair? WellÖ
As soon as I start the demo, I am disengaged from the game. It tosses you into an introductory cutscene. Well, no biggie. A lot of games have those, right? The problem is that the cutscene lasts about five minutes. Five minutes
. While the art style in the cutscene was lovely, Iím here mostly to test how the game plays. A demo shouldnít need a cutscene you canít skip, it should put you right into the gameÖespecially when that cutscene moves at a snailís pace and doesnít even allow you the option of speeding it up (which wouldnít affect it, seeing as it has no spoken dialogue). To recap, Iím not even playing the game yet, and it has managed to leave a bad taste in my mouth. Oy vey.
