    Not content to simply remake these games, this collection offers a nearly complete (sorry SNES Aladdin fans) look into these games and what made them so special. If you weren’t a fan in the 90s, you won’t be persuaded now, but for older players looking to tap into some sweet nostalgia or a new generation discovering these for the first time, this collection hits all the right notes.

    I had just as much fun playing through Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King in my thirties as I did 25 years ago as my eight-year-old self. And yes, I finally completed The Lion King; albeit with some assistance from the rewind function! Hakuna Matata. It means “no worries.”

    Retro game compilations are rarely as fully featured as Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and the Lion King. Although it basically just contains 2 short but sweet games, the amount of extras and care put into this package make it something truly special.

    A nice retro collection with two Disney oldies still delivering while offering a steep challenge. But even with all the bonus content it has a hefty pricetag.

    Jump back in time to the 16-bit era with these Disney classic games originally found on the Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis. Not a collection for everyone, but for those gripped by this pure nostalgia. These titles haven’t necessarily aged well, but there are enough added features to mitigate some unfair difficulty with; save features, a rewind button, extra difficulty settings, and the ability to watch a game playthrough and jump in at any point. Also with a lot of bonus content with multiple versions of each game, interviews with the creators and a plethora of original art that grounds you in the context to help you appreciate the games more.

    Should this collection exist? I’m not sure. Am I glad it exists? Absolutely. Disney Classic Games did a great job of bringing two past greats to modern platforms. Although I wouldn’t recommend it to those with no nostalgia for the originals, I’m confident that those who remember them will appreciate this trip to the past. Now excuse me as I blast the volume to Be Prepared and start a fresh no-rewind playthrough of Lion King — I’m a masochist.

    8.5/10 But worth it, if you loved these games as a kid!!!! 10/10 for all these dumb 0-1 rating lol.

    If you loved theses games as a kid you'll love theses games as an adult. Wait for a sale if $30 is too much for you( I got it for $20). I always like the sega Aladdin better so I don't mind it's missing the S.N. version. Lion King is as hard/fun as you remember it ( save files help with the anger lol). I honestly love how these games! I feel like I'm playing on my Sega.... FLAWS AND ALL BABY!! No game is perfect but it's easy to be jaded with all the games out today. Enjoy my old school sega friends!!

    This game is pure trash not only did they not make it fit on the full screen they left it as a small little box surrounded by artwork, theyThis game is pure trash not only did they not make it fit on the full screen they left it as a small little box surrounded by artwork, they omitted the SNES versions which in my eyes were superior to the Genesis versions which is a friggin sin as they got every other version including hand held's all in all this game is not even worth 10 dollars let alone 40 do yourself a favor and skip this if you're a SNES fan as you will be as disappointed as I was....
