    Castle of Illusion feat Mickey Mouse HD. The new adaptation of Castle of Illusion is an extremely beautiful platformer, and nice to play, too, but Sega clearly tries to take advantage of Capcom's neo-DuckTales. Mickey Mouse isn't as memorable a main character as Scrooge McDuck, and this game is ultimately just reaching for the fruits of the neo-retro craze. [Oct 2013]

    SEGA succeeds in reviving one of the great classic platformers: Castle of Illusion features smooth controls, affectionate graphics and intriguing boss designs. Mickey’s new adventures are way too short, though, and lack ambitious level composition. The original was a challenge and a hard nut to crack, the reworks is a mere casual game.

    It's charming and well-polished, but players craving challenge might be disappointed. On the other hand, people wanting to relax with something that doesn't require a huge investment of time or effort should consider joining Mickey on his newest mousecapade.

    Castle of Illusion is badly made, and not a very good game in and of itself. This remake has no right to exist whatsoever and is better off forgotten.

    Рекомендую всем фанатам мультипликаций, особенно Disney. Очень приятная глазу графика. Игра для всей семьи.
    Минус игры в том, что она не особо реиграбельна, учитывая свой жанр и очень короткая.

    I grew up with this game. I remember when I was a kid how wonderfully playful was the game. As a kid the words Castle, Illusion, Micky Mouse,I grew up with this game. I remember when I was a kid how wonderfully playful was the game. As a kid the words Castle, Illusion, Micky Mouse, were three formidable words.
    I remember as really hard to play, I preferred the World Of Illusion, but I thought it was still the best Micky mouse game.
    I had to try the PC version. I had to. Just for nostalgia and see how technically it was. The overall mark is a 7.
    Graphic: 7. Good graphic, good scenarios.. but not so good fps and the 2D/3D swapping it is not always a good idea. Too much work? It is your job fella!
    Playbility: 6. Awfully annoying the camera, the buttons, the jumping on platform without even seeing where to go and how, just guessing. Really annoying, not easy, but OK.
    Atmosphere: 8. Maybe it is better this version than the old one. They did a great job.

    Its insultingly stupid, even the children its meant to entertain would be insulted by it. The levels are far too short with absolutely noIts insultingly stupid, even the children its meant to entertain would be insulted by it. The levels are far too short with absolutely no challenge throughout. The narrator makes me feel like I'm being read a bedtime story or playing King's Quest at the age of 30. Mickey's animation is ugly, his design poor, and their is no variation to the control scheme. Its essentially Klonoa, without the charm or quality and fantastic level design. Tomba is still more enjoyable than this game and that came out long before this (and long after the original Castle of Illusion). The original is better, even the sega master system version is better and in terms of actual fun? No this remake is not fun, its by the numbers, its generic and its sad to see that this is the way new players get to see what was once a fun series of games. Expand

    Not a bad game but it is incredibly short for today's standards.
    Feels more like a remaster of the SNES than anything else, which is fine but they had to make the game longer, this game has a 2 to 3 hour runtime on your first time. Not very challenging but still a bit of fun. Gameplay is like the platformers of old, 1 button jump the other throws an item and that's it.
    The graphics are great, it feels like a Disney thing.
    My biggest gripe is the voice, there is no reason for this game to have voice, there is a option to take the narration and voice from the characters away, but then the images stay on screen for way too long, meaning that the game was made with a narrator in mind in the first place and is more like a narrator for a very very small kid show when you see ball, he says ball, when you jump the fist time he says that you jumped, really annoying really fast.

    Plataformas 2.5D entretenido pero simple, con una estética muy bonita y un gameplay decente aunque muy básico.

    Duración muy corta, rejugable para conseguir coleccionables y una banda sonora bastante digna. Imprescindible un mando de consola para jugarlo.

    Recomendado, sobre todo para los más pequeños.
