    I haven’t played a video game in about 15 years, but this Epic Mickey stuff looks like a lot of fun. I’m not going to buy a game system just to play it though. Wish it was available for the computer.

      Epic Mickey 2 will be available for PC next month.

    100% agree with everything you said, both pros and cons. The strongest plus being the revival of Oswald.

    I wish Disney Interactive (or whatever it is called) was stronger in general. The most successful Disney video game to date is the Kingdom Hearts series, and that’s not even a product of the Disney Company.

    Speaking as a “gamer”, video games are a frontier that Disney needs to embrace. Not just with their established properties, but also creating new ones.

    Did anyone else finish this quicker than the first Epic Mickey? I was pretty disappointed. I waited months for this to come out an I finished in 3 days! I took me months to finish the first one and I enjoyed every moment but Im just very disappointed at the second one.

    I finish the game in 2 days! I was really disappointed …I wish that if it was a longer game…

    Hey, Ricky. I hope you’ve shared your feedback with Warren Spector on these fronts and that he’ll take such opinions to heart when working on Epic Mickey 3.

    A couple of things I was hoping you’d ask Mr. Spector when interviewing him:

    -when there would be more attraction-specific characters (like the Country Bears, Dreamfinder & Figment, etc.) in future Epic Mickey installments.

    -when more WDW-specific references and nods (such as long-gone MK and Epcot attractions) would find their into future games.

    -when TV show-specific characters (like the Wuzzles, Gummi Bears, Launchpad MacQuack, Gadget Hackwrench, Monterey Jack, Rebecca Cunningham, Darkwing Duck, Bonkers, etc.), since those characters are also mostly-forgotten and under-loved today anyway.

    -when they’ll add a level themed to Critter Country/Bear Country to Wasteland, since it is now the only Disneyland land without a Wasteland equivalent.

    Next time you get to interview Warren Spector, please ask him these kinds of questions. Thanks, Ricky.

      I would love to have brought up specifics like this with Warren, especially knowing he’s a huge fan of so many Disney properties. Unfortunately my actual interview time with him was quite short, limited to 10 minutes. So I went with broader topics about how Epic Mickey fits into the world of Disney. Now that I’ve played all three games, I’d definitely jump at the chance to find out more about why Epic Mickey 2 is so very, very similar to the first.
