About This Game

In Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two, gamers will play as Mickey Mouse and for the first time ever, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, Walt Disney’s first cartoon star, in an all-new adventure of creativity and discovery. Created by industry luminary Warren Spector and Disney Interactive’s Junction Point game development studio, Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two returns the franchise through PC. Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two returns Mickey Mouse and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit to Wasteland, an alternate world filled with 80 years of forgotten Disney characters and theme park attractions. But for the first time, Mickey and Oswald will join forces as true partners – Mickey with his magical paint brush that wields paint and thinner, and Oswald with his powerful remote control that allows him to command electricity. This new co-op play combined with enhanced in-game physics will further enhance the idea that “PlayStyle Matters” – a unique approach to gameplay pioneered by Warren Spector where players dynamically tackle different challenges in order to explore all possibilities and storylines, but with consequences for their chosen actions.

In my opinion this game could do better.
It is just like the other ports with One difference.
Two player support is not avalible.
There are areas you can not get to with out Oswald going solo.

Or ereas that need two people and the AI wont activate.

According to who I talked to at Disney, The Game was intentionally left out the second player mechanics for the pc version.

Doing that underminds the whole point of the game.

This is a good game because the graphics (For me at least), are beautiful. Now, I haven't played much of this yet, but I can already tell this game is going to be awesome. Now, I know it has crashed for people in other reviews and so on, but it hasn't crashed for me yet, it might be because you don't have the right computer or something, but hey, I'm not trying to point somebody out for their mistakes. Another good reason I like this game is because it references old Disney cartoons, which kind of makes them famous a bit again. To the creators of this game: Thank you for putting this beautiful game on Steam.

Avoid buying this game, it does not even run on modern hardware, crashes on the loading screen after less than a second, no joke, I tried everything I could think of to get this to run but nothing works.

i7 5930K, 32gb ddr4, 980ti in SLi.

*******THIS GAME SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM STEAM UNTIL IT'S FIXED*******

Not that bad of a game. It certainly looks better than it's predecessor. Heck it even has voice acting now which is neat.
I really didn't expect the paint reticule to work as well as it did since it was meant or mouse or wii-mote but it worked great with an xbox controller.
Some of my favorite scenes happened when the mad doctor showed up and turned whatever scene he was in into a musical because he refused to speak in anything other than song.

There is a whole lot of content in this game. So much so that I kept feeling like I was missing stuff as I progressed through each level, such as different paths I could have taken to see where they lead or quests I just couldn't complete because I may have screwed something up in another part of the area.

For the most part I tried to stick with the hero path but I inadertantly caused more damage in a lot of areas than I meant to because I thought I was doing the right thing or defending myself.

Anyhoo it was an enjoyable experience and perhaps I'll give it another go eventually to find all the secrets that I might have passed by.

Game is meant to be co-op, it even says "Player 1" in the menu. The point of the game is to be co-op, it's even part of the title. Bought this for my kids to play together, very disappointed to find out that the co-op feature was removed, but not the point of it. So the game is rather lacking and very disappointing for the kids who specifically wanted it to use as a co-op experience. Why Disney would cripple the game like this is beyond me, but their disdain for their paying audience is palpable.

I've been playing with the XBox 360 controller and this game feels like a really solid port. It performs well, has smooth controls, and I haven't encountered any bugs so far. The game itself is a fun platformer with collectibles and puzzle-solving. If you are playing by yourself, the AI for Oswald is good enough to get by no problem. Lots of charming Disney songs, animations, and artwork!

EDIT: I beat the game today and I was able to finish the game without encountering any bugs other than Winslow getting stuck sometimes. Overall a very fun platformer!

I don't see where people are coming from complaining about technical issues in this game. Multi-core, specific resolutions and such. And with less than an hour of runnng the game to say the least.
It runs just fine for me in 1080p on a 6-core processor.

For the simple platformer that it is, I enjoy it. Someone mentioned Spyro as a comparison, and though it's not nearly as focused a game, I tend to agree. It's got that classic Disney cartoon vibe to it which helps give it a warm feel.

If you go into it not expecting it to break new ground genre wise or simply not to be complete trash (your mind already being set), you're sure to enjoy it.

A somewhat dated Mickey
Rating: Ok

Played the prologue and a large piece of the first stage (castle) and it is fun to play. The graphics feel a bit dated and the controls (X360) isn't the best but so far having fun running around as Mickey. Not really challenging so far though but the animations, sound and voices feel like a Disney experience. Which is great :-)

The game is really meant to play as co-op, and when playing alone Oswald will do the stuff he is suppose to do himself. Would have been nicer if you actually could switch positions.

Supports wide-screen natively

My recommendation may change, but for now I'm going to recommend people pass. I personally can't get it running on my system (freezes at startup). I've tried about every tweak/fix I can think of.

*Update2* Okay, Gorilla has a possible fix. It involves limiting the number of cores used in Windows. Hardly ideal since may hurt performance in other games/tasks, but at least it gets the game running for me.

There are also some other issues. Apparently the game:
a) has no local co-op
b) has a 30fps lock
c) may not have trading cards, despite what the store page says

If you are interested in the game I'd suggest putting it on your Wishlist and checking back in a week or so. See how things work out for people who bought it, whether it gets patched, and whether we come up with fixes for the framerate/coop issues. As it is stands, you're better off hanging onto your money until we see if this can get sorted out.

(edit: added forum links) (edit2: added trading card info) (edit3: cpu issue info) (edit4: cpu fix info)

I was really disappointed to find out after buying that this game doesn't have local co-op. Which was the reason I got it. Why the Wii U version can have two players but the PC version can't is beyond me. A great two player game but an awful single player game.

This game was at one time cancelled for the pc. Why? It did'nt do well on the other platforms I guess. Or maybe not on the right platforms. The game sais Disney all over it. From intro to the singing and to naration. The game is, how should I put it, Magical. Animation is fluid,and very cartoony which is it's intension. This is the type of game I've desired to play for a long time. Trine and Trine 2 also filled that need. Only gripe, it stuck at 30 fps. But to tell ya the truth, it's still smooth. If you like platform gaming, you can't go wrong.

I'll be honest, I haven't played this game since it's release nearly two years ago, after I plowed through the game within four days. So my memory of this game is rather fuzzy and full of holes.

However, I will recommend this game and it's Wii-Exclusive prequel solely on the fact that the premise behind these games and it's world is amazing. It's basically Disneyland if all the rides were made out of paint, and you happened to visit after a really bad rainstorm.

The game itself is not the best platformer, and doesn't hold up to it's predessesor, but it definitly has a sort of appeal to it, one that any Disney nerd of Animation or Parks can look at and say "Hey, I remember that!"

Bought it to play co-op with my girlfriend. Turns out there's NO co-op possibility at all.
Very weird and frankly misleading concidering the game was designed to be played that way.

As other reviews mention, game breaking bugs can cause frequent crashes, freezing, and even make progression impossible. You might be fortunate enough to be able to actually finish the game, but be sure to test it first. If you have any crashes in the first hour or two you should expect the rest of the game to play that way (and potentially reach a point where you can't progress); if not, you're probably in the clear, but it's not a guarantee.

The most common offender is cutscenes, particularly the transition from the Underground to Mean Street North. Some are never able to move past that point, others can reload the game and move on. I was able to get through it, but whenever I attempted to use the camera item I immediately crashed to the desktop (even just staring at the ground, so it's not a weird issue with draw distance or loading lots of art and textures), and have since given up further attempts to make the game work.

The community hub is filled with similar reports, and these issues have never been resolved by the developer. There is a thread reporting some success by limiting the number of cores in use just to make the game work correctly, to give you an idea of what a poor port this is. On top of these problems, the controls feel clunky and this version of the game removed co-op, leaving you to deal with the occasionally frustrating and clumsy AI controlling Gus.

If you're able to look past the bugs and serious functionality issues, and not run into any sections that block progression, the game itself is an average platformer with lots of collectibles, but nothing particularly special. If you really want to play it you should stick to the console versions.
