Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion

This is the first time I’m going to be writing about a demo of a game that I downloaded in the 3DS eShop for the VERY FIRST TIME, so please bear with me.

So I was looking through the eShop when I noticed that Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion was out. So after a few moments, I started downloading it. When it finished, I was so excited to try it out!

Wow, once I opened that demo, I sure didn’t like it.

Don’t get me wrong, the sprites in this game is SUPERB but it’s just so slooooooow. The gameplay is so slow, I was actually thinking of turning off my 3DS and going back to my boring routine life. It’s a good game, if you are a big fan of the Mickey franchise.

Let’s start first with the story.

It all starts with Oswald calling Mickey, telling that Minnie has been kidnapped by the witch Mizrabel. God, the text panning was so so SLOW. Blah blah, you rush off to save Minnie. Then suddenly, Minnie appears in Mickey’s house looking for him. Hmmm… What is happening here?

So then you go forth to the castle of Illusion, saving random Disney characters inside the castle.

What I like about this game is the sprite art. It’s so detailed and even though they’re sprites, its all good. What I hate is how slow Mickey runs, the part where you have to draw out blocks for you to get to places, and just WHY THIS GAME IS SO SLOW.

I know, its just a demo, but I’m really SORRY. I don’t like it. I am so glad they have demos, because if they didn’t, I would probably be in the evil clutches of the 3DS market, finding out that I could’ve made a mistake in buying this game.

If you are a fan of slow paced games, go ahead. If you aren’t, don’t get this game.
