Epic Mickey 2 The Power of Two returns the gamer to the Wasteland which is an imaginary world
based on classic Magic Kingdom attractions like Frontierland and Adventureland. After the Wasteland is torn up by earthquakes, Mickey is summoned to help restore it — and find out what caused the disaster. Mickey has a magical paint brush at his disposal that can shoot paint or thinner.
In the second game, Mickey is joined by Oswald the rabbit as he battles to save the Wasteland. From what my boys tell me (and my observations) - a second player can control Oswald. If you choose to play alone, the computer will automatically control Oswald.
All six of my boys (ages 6 to 19) were enthralled with the game for hours.
And so was my biggest kid (AKA the hubster)!
While I am not a video game fan, I am definitely a Disney fan, and I really enjoyed watching the boys play. There is a storyline, Disney characters, references to the Amusment Parks, and great music. A lot like watching a Disney movie.
One thing that I really loved about the game as a mom is that it really fosters cooperation. Players have to work together to accomplish things in the game - and that is a skill that any siblings can definitely work on!
If this is not on your shopping list for your favorite gamers for Christmas, it definitely should be!
Epic Mickey 2 The Power of 2 is available on XBox 360, PS3, and Nintendo Wii to satisy any gamer preference.
