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]

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

Then i when i was able to play it, i relived some of the best times in my life..overall its a very enjoyable game with one hell of a soundtrack and excellent voice acting... but there is a few things that i didn't agree with...1 being the constant story interruptions within the main game...i felt like i had to press the skip cinematic options way to many times. Also this game...although fantastic on the PC and console systems should really be geared toward the handheld market like the PS Vita or the 3DS because the control over scrooge would feel more natural. Overall i give it a 9 because despite a few flaws its allot of fun!!! Buy it! Expand

The graphics look nice, and the game controls and works fine, as did Ducktales, although I do have two little more problems. Firstly, they could have added more worthwhile content, for example, the minecart sections are pretty cool at first, but they don't really add much, and the redone bosses actively detract from the game. My second little problem is that sometimes the hitboxes seem a teensy bit off. The game's pretty good though, if you're interested in it, it's probably worth buying it. Expand

Unsurprisingly, it is not a very complex game, and the controls are rather simple. The game incorporates a Metroidvania-style map and is split into five levels after the introductory one, with a boss at the end of each one. It is a cute little game with a lighthearted story.

    Unfortunately, factors that will weigh on your enjoyment of the game are the atrocious hitboxes, the difficult bosses, and the lack of checkpoints. The bosses aren't easy to deal with until you've learned their patterns, and you typically you won't manage that the first time through. If you lose all of your lives at any point of the level, you have to restart the entire level all over again. This frustrated me quite a lot, since I quickly got tired of having to repeat the same level over and over again.

    If you want to maximize enjoyment, play on easy. The gameplay isn't all that spectacular to warrant exploring anyway, and only the bosses at the end of the levels are meaningful. There are too many frustrations in the levels to make it worth torturing yourself through them, and they're not particularly short. Although I'm rating this a 7, it's more of an "in retrospect" rating that's been eased-up based on the game being released in 1990. Realistically, in modern times, it's more of a 6.

But there's too big reasons I wouldn't get this version. One there's a bug where it will freeze after the final & two that all purchases are permanent. Which means if you buy the 8-bit music for the sound test it will play the 8-bit music. which to me kinda grating compared to other NES soundtracks. Expand

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