"The air of compromise" indeed. A shame all that potential went to waste. I thought they were going to go for a truly dark Disney story, something worthy of The Black Hole. But no. Had to play it safe.

Cowards.

As for the review, I didn't keep track of the child molestation jokes, but there had to be at least half a dozen in there.

Funny stuff, as always ZP delivers "epic stuff". I kill me, just like Mickey tried to do.

Strange I thought that Yahtzee would praise the story (but he didn't talk much about it either). Oh well maybe we will get more info on Extra Punctuation


and I still dont see how this game isn't dark and edgy

Wow, he tore this a new asshole. (Like most other reviewers.)
Actually, drop the "wow," I knew he would.

Yahtzee, your fear of amusement park mascots mirrors my own.

Pretty much this is how I feel about it, I loved those dark and twisted art designs they had for it all but no.... they had to play it safe. Though I will say he actually tried to review it, I thought that when he heard Mickey he would just smash it with all the grace of a sledgehammer against a glass wall.

Wow. You know, given what's already been said about epic mickey...

This Zero Punctuation actually also feels a bit flat and a waste of potential.

I dunno. Somehow this review felt particularly forced and flat. But, what can you really say anyway about a game that's such an obvious disappointment.

Such a shame; if only Disney had been willing to try something creative and different. Alas, you can't have everything.

I'm still going to try this one out, but it sounds more like he was disappointed, rather than making fun of it for just being bad

wow. I learned so much here.


Who knew that mickey mouse handles serious social issues with such sensitivity.
I feel like this should be a game.

Saw the gameplay, it's bland and uninteresting. I see the rest of the game is just as well.

Losing a lot of respect for Warren Spector right now.
