Such a shame but I had a feeling this would be a letdown in some ways. Good review, sounds like a hire.

Horace and Clarabelle used to give me nightmares. But then, I was scared of my local theme park because it had ONE skeleton.

Shame to hear that this one turned out to be disappointing, but I think I might get it nonetheless. It's $40 from ozgameshop.com, if that helps anyone.

Disappointing, but not unexpected. I still maintain that this game would be better on the HD systems; it could look really great with the extra detail. I wouldn't rule out a port either if the sales are disappointing.

Remember guys, 6/10 does not mean it is a bad game. There's still fun to be found, and its worth a look for Disney fans.

In terms of games, 6/10 is a terrible score by any scale!

Donkey Kong for this year. Next year...Zelda, who knows. Probably huge shift towards 3DS.

No it's not, it's just not great. A terrible score would be 1-3 or so.

Wasn't metroid other M a big disappointment to a lot of people?

When combat was reduced to spamming SenseMove and the music was completely forgettable, yeah Other M was pretty meh.

I still think we have been so influenced by how the games industry rates things numerically that it's quite difficult to draw the conclusion that a 5 (not in direct reference to this review) is simply average. Some fun to be had but probably nothing you'd go back to.

Still, I do enjoy the premise of it, and from the very dark concept art that I saw way back when, I'll still come around to buying it, if only to see how wonderfully each character animates in the world.

I was looking for a true successor to Mickey Mania. I supposed the search continues.

I simply can't spend money on gameplay that is a notch or two under a standard. Such a shame that this wasn't polished.

Damn, was looking forward to singing "Oh Mickey you're so fine, you're so fine you blow my mind." Because that's not lame or anything.

When Nintendo throw around words like "QUALITY AAA GAMEPLAY LIKE ZELDA" its no wonder we get excited. Luckily I always viewed this with a pinch of salt.

There is a "major consequence" isn't there? Something to do with Oswald?

Well, the platforming must be bloody terrible then.

The game got an 8.5 in another review, so while its clearly not as good as DKCR, it might still have some merit. Hey atleast its cheaper than DK!

It got an 86% from ONM too, I think it was. Some Dutch mag gave it a 6. Dont be surprised if this is one of the lower scores.

Wow @ Nic_231 and Robob.

Monster Hunter 3, Red Steel 2, Sin and Punishment 2, No More Heroes 2, MW Reflex are just a few examples of why you really shouldn't speak if you're not capable of having an informed opinion.
