DISNEY EPIC MICKEY (PG) EA SPORTS ACTIVE 2 (G)
★★★★ Mickey Mouse makes a strong return to the world of video games. Set in the Wasteland, the home of all the forgotten characters from Disney’s history, Epic Mickey gives players choices about how they interact with the world. Do they want to help or hinder, create or destroy? While these decisions aren’t exactly earthshattering, it’s still fun using Mickey’s brush, which can be used to bring objects into existence or to erase them.
PS3, Wii, $149.95
