Legend of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse (Sega Game Gear review)

Developer: Aspect, Sega CS
Publisher: Sega
Released: 1995

Legend of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse is an action-platformer that was later released on the Sega Master System in 1998.

+ Lots of interaction with the environment which immerses you into the world and breaks up the side-scrolling action.

+ Parallax scrolling in the Bridges of Destiny level is one of the most beautiful and technically advanced feats on the console.

+ Bosses are a joy to fight and there's some really interesting puzzle-like elements to their attack patterns.

+ Features many cut-scenes to help tie the story together and to keep you invested in the narrative of your adventure.

- Level design plays it safe and the stages are brief, so it doesn't live up the standards of the previous 8-bit Illusion games.

- Controls are slightly too sensitive and making ultra-precise corrections in mid-jump can push you wide of the intended mark.

- Music is decidedly average and the tunes fail to adequately reflect the mood of your surroundings.
