epic_mickey_2_shaking_hands

The LA Times is reporting the Warren Spector’s critically disappointing Epic Mickey 2 only managed to sell 270,000 units in the United States from its launch till the end of the year. The original Epic Mickey for Wii fared much better by selling 1.3 million copies. It’s not known whether Disney will work with Junction Point anymore. Disney unveiled today that it’s currently working on Disney Infinity with Avalanche Studios.

  1. To be fair, Warren Specter overhyped the first one and tricked a lot of people into buying it (myself included). I didn’t fall for his hype the second time and I’m glad I didn’t. My friends who bought the game say it’s really bad and not worth the price tag. I might get the game when I can find it really cheap for what it is worth.

    • ^ My thoughts exactly. When I played Epic Mickey I was like is this guy seriously supposed to be a good game developer? Don’t ever let him reach his dream of making a Zelda game. I think if Nintendo did that some assassinations would be in order.

      • The guy’s been a part of some amazing games, like Deus Ex, System Shock and Theif.
        It’s like he had kids and was just like, “maaah keeeedz” and started making games for dumb children. I play all genres of games, but Epic Mickey is just dumb.

  3. I hear the camera isn’t fixed, Oswald’s AI is retarded, and the level design iss horrible. I wonder what Spector is thinking now. Simple Q&A would have saved this game.

  4. mickey doesn’t have that appeal anymore with kids or a lot of adults so of course mickey games doesn’t generate enough sales. the kingdom hearts games makes money but its not cause of mickey. what disney needs to do is work on games with characters that gamers young and old will like.

  5. Not surprised, because the first game suck so much ass, to dark, to repetitive, and the camera, the camera was so horrible.

  6. I really doubt Disney will stop working with Junction Point (or shut it down, since Disney Interactive owns Junction Point) because of lousy sales for one game. I mean, they did manage to be successful with the prequel, so Disney can’t deem them poorly immediately for one fluke. Give Junction Point another chance, and maybe with a different game instead of another Epic Mickey. Test the waters in different areas.

  7. I haven’t had interest in Mickey (or Disney) games since The Magical Quest on the Super NES. Disney characters all feel so boring. Well, MOST of them. Especially the classic ones.
