I gather most of you were at least as excited as I was about Epic Mickey. Something apparently went awry, however, which is a huge blow to my gaming esteem (but then again when it comes to Nintendo shit, what isn't these days). It's got a 73/100 right now on metacritic with some comments like
...polluted by a terrible camera and hollow fetch quests.
...a complete turd that wastes the idea of its central mechanic and couples this with platforming gameplay that would have been woefully underwhelming a decade ago.
It's my personal belief that the word "turd" should be reserved for truly boring, useless, steaming piles of excrement, for use on things like pandas or Buster Bluth's skill in soccer. So if Epic Micky truly is a turd, it's a sad day.
