  • Summary: DuckTales Remastered has seen the development team take the levels and layout from the original 1989 release as a foundation before expanding upon them to significantly enhance the gameplay experience but where this update truly impresses is its graphics and sound. All of the visuals fromDuckTales Remastered has seen the development team take the levels and layout from the original 1989 release as a foundation before expanding upon them to significantly enhance the gameplay experience but where this update truly impresses is its graphics and sound. All of the visuals from the 8-bit game have been beautifully re-created as hand-drawn and animated sprites, across a backdrop of luscious, re-envisioned level backgrounds. Furthermore, original Disney Character Voices talent, including some from the cartoon TV series, bring in-game characters to life with charm and wit, while the classic melodies of the original soundtrack are given a modern twist.

    Ducktales Remastered is a nostalgia trip from start to end, frustrating, life-taking warts and all.

    It comes packing a few twists, some better than others. Refreshed boss fights are a nice touch, but Remastered’s confounding emphasis on its story is disruptive and annoying, even if it comes packing some great voice acting.

    I can’t see many people who grew up only knowing what a virtual gun is accepting the shortness and difficulty curve of DuckTales Remastered.

    Duck Tales Remastered is a little gem churned out by Capcom and WayForward.

    More rehashed than remastered, your childhood might be better served holding onto old memories rather than making new ones.

    A pleasant trip down memory lane, but not the one you absolutely need to take. [CD-Action 10/2013, p.66]

Sometimes I play old goodie NES games on my computer using emulator. Nostalgia But this game with improved graphics and improved interface, while keeping almost the same difficulty is great! I hope for more such remakes in future! Expand

This game is way better than the classic and legendary NES version with a storyline to boot. The voice acting is spot on. The gameplay is fast and fluid. The graphics are beautiful and the game itself is a legendary series. Maybe this will encourage Capcom to make a Duck Tales 3 you know without any dlc lol!) BUY THIS GAME! 10/10!! Expand

The spritework is gorgeous, the 3D models works a lot with the sprites, the music is perfect, the difficulty is great (it can be quite hard, and you can do short work on the bosses once you know what you need to do, the voice acting and the cutscenes work just like the show. It's a great, great game, and it's almost a crime that so many critics gave it a low score because of the difficulty. Expand

The new longer levels are kind of a good thing, but I miss being able to speed run the game in under 12 minutes. Expand

It will bring a lot of people, who new how it was to play these type of games back in the days, a lot of joy. The only point that maybe needs to be changed is a neasier way of skipping the cinematics. They stayed with the orignal concept and haven't created a totally different game.
    If you get further in the game you can even open extra's where you can see the change they made to the original game.
    Overall a lot of joy if you know the games we used to play.

This one has partially broken controls pogo isn't as responsive as it used to be. I won't even start on cinematic they are good for the first time nice novelty but after a while they are really tiring. I hate making this game "go there, grab something go elsewhere" back on NES when I wanted to skip through the levels I just did now it is unnecessary monotonous item fetching. Expand
