  • 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]

    Rating this game lower than a 10... is absolutely unacceptable.

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

    This game is fantastic and deserves all the praise in the world for being a good remake of a classic, enjoyable game. Disney-qualityThis game is fantastic and deserves all the praise in the world for being a good remake of a classic, enjoyable game. Disney-quality animation, improved soundtrack, deeper and more complex boss fights and the original voice actors from the show are all terribly awesome reasons to play this game again. The best part is that now, in addition to the addictive nature of collecting all that cash in-game, you can actually spend it on cool tributes and art from the show (even the original soundtrack!). There's even a story now, so it's like you're playing an episode from one of the greatest cartoon shows ever, and if you want to skip the cinematics, just hit two buttons and off you go. This helped to remind me why Capcom is one of the best. Expand

    Gameplay is faithful to the original. Graphics and audio are remastered from scratch, but maintain the same theme. If you are a zealous fan ofGameplay is faithful to the original. Graphics and audio are remastered from scratch, but maintain the same theme. If you are a zealous fan of the original games, the storytelling and dialogue will seem intrusive. Many of us who enjoyed the game and the TV series both will thoroughly enjoy the spirit the story brings. The additions like the new intro level (its stage music is FANTASTIC btw) and gallery are welcome to fans of the show and gives good incentive to collect as much cash ingame. However, the most awesome addition will fulfill the desires of ANY DuckTales fan:

    YOU CAN ACTUALLY DIVE INTO AND SWIM AROUND SCROOGE'S MONEY PIT. SOLD.

I loved every single minute of it , even the last boss fight , and I will keep on playing it in order to unlock all the extra content. If your childhood hero is Scrooge McDuck then you should definitely play this classic masterpiece! Expand

Twórcy ładnie polepszyli(a wręcz stworzyli od nowa) silnik graficzny. Stworzyli wciągająca fabułę(a fabuła dość rzadko występuje w tego typu grach). Sama rozgrywka jest dość przyjemna ale i wymagająca(zakładam że podobnie jak sam oryginał). Nie wiem jak dla fanów oryginału, dla mnie dość dobra produkcja. Moja ocena 7/10 Expand

    The game is quite good, but the crash on the final boss makes it unpalyeble. Thanks for wasting my time
