this seems like a very good summary of this game, there is just one question I have: what does the graphics of this game look like? Is it realistically showing Disneyland or is it more lika a comic style?

That's a good question – I've added a paragraph at the end of the 'Difference With Disneyland Reality' section about this. The Mickey Mouse and other characters you interact with look exactly how you expect them to and I could navigate my way round the game immediately by using my knowledge of EuroDisney's layout, so on the whole it is quite realistic – or at least as realistic as a game in which you interact with Mickey Mouse can be.

I like the mention of how the Kinect works for people sitting down smiley - ok I did wonder when I saw the adverts for the Kinect if it would be as accessible as the Wii, so that is good to know smiley - ok Also good to know the voice command is optional, so you can play it quietly if you want/need to smiley - ok

I like the mention of Sparrowmen and smiley - titwomen, too smiley - evilgrin

Is Black Barty from the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction rather than the film inspired by it?

Superb concluding paragraph smiley - ok

"Each character reacts to the different commands in a different way, with many having a range of responses for each request."

Reminds me of the Character Breakfast in Disney World, where you could meet Mickey, Minnie etc and get their autographs while eating breakfast - we met Chip (of Chip 'n' Dale) at the beginning of the session and got his autograph, and then he came back at the end and was desperate to give us his autograph again smiley - laugh

Thanks for reading this again, I'm glad you enjoyed it. I've updated it to say that Black Barty seems to be a character invented for this game; since 2006 the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' rides around the smiley - earth have matched the film series, so as this game was made in 2011 Barty must have been a deliberate choice not to use Jack Sparrow, presumably due to likeness rights etc in Johnny Depp's contract.

Ah! That is interesting how the ride inspired the film and the film inspired the ride smiley - laugh Yes, I can imagine it was a rights issue that required a new character to be invented for that...

One thing I just spotted is that underline still doesn't show up in the Pliny view of Entries smiley - blue Maybe italic would work instead?

Oh, that's disappointing news about Pliny, although at least we have tables…
I've changed it to italicised rather than underlined.

Yes, the tables were the most important thing - italics look fine instead of the underline smiley - ok
