So far, that's the one thing that's kept me from renting the original on PS3.
Fortunately, EVERYBODY's been complaining about it, so I'm guessing it was fixed. Hopefully I won't miss any crucial plot details jumping into the sequel, like with Kingdom Hearts II.
I wonder if Epic Mickey 2 will be any good? I'm assuming not since Epic Mickey was such a horrible godawful unplayable terrible clunky MESS that I couldn't even get through it. Horrible gameplay, horrible camera and horrible controls.
Seriously I can't overstate just how much I hated Epic Mickey.
The following is the full Comic Con panel from this year, moderated by former X-Play host Adam Sessler. On the panel is Marv Wolfman (co-writer on the game and is best known for creating Blade and Teen Titans Cyborg, Starfire, and Raven), Junction Point honcho Warren Spector, Becky Cline of Walt Disney Archives, and Peter David (who writes the Epic Mickey comics). Peter opens the panel is spectacular fashion.
Just a bump for having finally played the demo on PS3:
It's not bad--I can only imagine how bad the camera angles were on EM1, but here we've got a fairly nice free-camera 360 view. (Rather too fluid, in fact, when you have to play with regular controls.)
Any mix of gaming and Disney has Kingdom Hearts II as the bar to beat, but I got through the tutorial intro, and wouldn't mind getting through the rest...As soon as I get a PS Move upgrade, since as a former Wii game, it's geared for wand controllers, and a pain to play on normal joysticks.
(And I know those are Oswald hats on the panel, but why do they look like Blue Meanie hats?)
I didn't mean the score (having never played FF, I can't think of any memorable video game scores), I meant the songs (including the villain intro song you mentioned). The idea of a break-out-in-song musical video game piqued my interest, it could be interesting.
