For all its faults, you could hardly accuse Warren Spector’s Epic Mickey of playing it safe. Its dark, twisted vision dared to scratch away the colourful surface of Walt’s world to reveal the rotting black heart pulsing beneath. This startling treatment of a pop icon – and the novelty of its unusual setting, the Cartoon Wasteland – carried Epic Mickey a long way past the reasonable complaints about its errant camera, awkward exploration and simplistic quest design. How disappointing, then, that Junction Point should steer this sequel into gentler waters, all while making the same mistakes as last time.
