It's been a while since Mickey Mouse had a huge, starring role in a video game or was featured in something the older, more jaded set (like us) could appreciate. The Nintendo Wii exclusive "Disney Epic Mickey" aims to change all that, plus boost the popular mouse's standing in the gaming arena. But can he stand oversized-shoe-to-oversized-shoe with the likes of Mario and Sonic?

To answer that important, deep question we went to the crack staff at Joystiq, who guided Mickey through the remnants of a world ruined by his own hand in a quest to set things right (and screw with gremlins). Find out what they think of Mickey's new adventure, and then decide for yourself if it's a day-one purchase or Christmas-list fodder. (Via Joystiq)
