★★★★ 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

★★★★ This fit­ness ti­tle doesn’t muck around, with two mo­tion sen­sors, a heart rate monitor and a re­sis­tance band. It can ac­cu­rately mea­sure play­ers’ move­ments and dis­play re­al­time heart rates, en­sur­ing an op­ti­mised work­out. Ac­tive 2 has about 70 new ex­er­cises and ac­tiv­i­ties. The nine-week over­all fit­ness pro­gram and three-week car­dio pro­gram pro­vide ex­cel­lent struc­ture. Also avail­able on Xbox 360, but re­quires Kinect.
