As most people know I am a big Disney fan and I will usually make the effort and take the time to try out any Disney game.
So I thought I would give Disney – Magical world 2 a bash. I do take into consideration that some games have age preferences so I am always open minded to some of the elements that are meant to be helpful.
Thus, it is with a heavy heart that I have to admit that there is way too much dialog in this game, even my 10 year old niece said so and she is just as big a fan as I am.
Now with the negatives aside let’s get to the fun part.
Disney – Magical World 2 introduces you to all your favourite old school characters like Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Donald and Daisy Duck and even Goofy and Pluto. It’s so exciting to see them making a comeback into the animated scene and re-entering the lives of the millennials.
Now for the game play – you start off with a talking envelope as your guide, she will talk you through the tutorial of how things will work in your town and how you can get around. Always remember to take a photo when you can; it’s always selfie time. Once you get through the tutorial chat, you meet up with Mickey Mouse who will navigate you through the town time meet up with your new friends.
You move from level to level by collecting items and doing side missions to be able to gain access to the next level. Like most games where you have to earn stars to move to the next level, in this game you need to get stickers and the amount of stickers you have will be the level number you can unlock.
In some missions you gain items to be able to change your clothes or add accessories. You even get a home of your own to decorate. With some items you can create themes and if you wear, accessorise and furnish with all the same types of items you get bonus points. Some of your clothing items are called “Ace Ensembles” and when you walk around and greet other characters you get “nice” points, meaning that the other characters like what you are wearing.
As you go through game play you learn new greetings and new tricks. Some of the levels require you to do magic… yes… you are a magician and an awesome one at that; as you get higher in levels and experience you gain more spells and more power to execute your missions with flair.
Regardless of the downside of the game it was quite fun to play and quite educational too, oh and by the way if you love 3D games and you have the 3DS console you can play this game in 3D too.
