About this Article

While Mickey Mouse has been the face of The Walt Disney Co. for more than 80 years, I don't think he's anyone's favorite toon. And yet, here he is in "Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two," his second high-profile video game in three years. It's the continuation of designer Warren Spector's effort to rehabilitate the rodent -- and given the drab, charmless result, it's a project I'm ready to give up on.
