AAA. game...Quality...And it has an 72 on metacritic... They just made a Disney game for the audience who wants it. They just could made a Mickey Party game and it would also pass 1-2 million sales;.
I'm playing Devils advocat here, but I could easily see - had Epic Mickey Bombed - some people spinning the 'it wasn't good enough to succeed on Wii' type argument. But now it's a AAA quality game or something.
I haven't played it (Doubt I'll ever bother) but what I've heard / read was never overly positive, albeit some of the gaming press wrote it off without ever really giving it a chance in terms of reviews.
