    The Disney Afternoon Collection is yet another fantastic six-pack of 8-bit Capcom classics. Playing through these adventures is such great fun that I'm looking forward to seeing what retro gems Capcom puts together for their next compilation.

    The Disney Afternoon Collection takes us on an 8-bit journey through time, a pack of six of the great classics of platforms that in their golden age of Disney and Capcom. A glorious pack of sensations for the young adults, and new and challenging adventures for the younger generation.

    Though every game in The Disney Afternoon Collection is over twenty years old, they all hold up fairly well. The gameplay mechanics are simplistic and can feel a bit dated, but they are great versions of Disney classics. If you are looking for a game with exceptional and more modern gameplay, there are better retro-inspired games on the market. But if you are looking to play these for the nostalgia while taking advantage of their enhanced visual fidelity, this is the bundle to get, especially at its $20 price point.

    If you are an oldschool aficionado you’ll get a nice collection of six NES classics with slight enhancements like in-game-saving (once per game) and rewind function to tone down the extreme difficulty. Plus you get a heap of bonus material like artworks and the soundtracks.

    The Disney Afternoon Collection proposes us to revive six of the franchise’s great classics, which will delight the most nostalgic people. Retro platform games to prove our skills.

    In the end, I somewhat enjoyed Disney Afternoon Collection in spite of its shortcomings. Retro gaming isn’t just a fad, but rather a growing movement for gamers who miss the simple challenge of using just a pair of thumbs. For that population – and fans of the equally nostalgic cartoon series – this collection is a bargain. But, for a true throwback thrill, there are plenty of ways to get it without resorting to unresponsive controls and questionable game design. Like most collections, this is a well-intentioned labor of love for fans of the IPs and 8-bit completists, yet I’m guessing most newcomers won’t see much value in this journey down memory lane.

    Wow! There are some great gems from my childhood here! Back in the early to mid 90's before the age of the Disney channel you had what wasWow! There are some great gems from my childhood here! Back in the early to mid 90's before the age of the Disney channel you had what was known as Disney Afternoon, which was a set of 4 shows that debut on regular television. Anyone with a television could watch it with or without cable and the shows were very popular. So popular infact, that Capcom partnered with Disney in order to make several obligatory 8 bit nes tie in games. 6 of those are presented here. 5 of those 6 games are great. The other, decent. Gamepaly and graphics from the NES has been emulated perfectly here. Remixed soundtrack on the menus are perfect. The addition of a new rewind button makes beating most of these a cinch. You'll love this collection if you grew up with the games, enjoy retro gaming, have children that need something simple to play or just want some easy achievements. All others need not apply. The only reason. That this score is an 8 is because I loathe paying 20 bucks for 20 year old games. Wait for a sale. Expand
