Man, i can't tell you how hyped i was when i heard that the remastered version is in development.
I can't tell you how much i loved the original (like THIS much). It was soooo good!
I'm a sucker for old NES/SNES games and games that try to capture that old essence (Oniken and others).
But, and this is a huge but, DuckTales: Remastered dissapointed me a little.
OK, so the gameplay is great! Just like in the original game...it's exactly the same! The artstyle and graphics are nice. The music is cool, (altho i prefer the original NES music but that might be the nostalgia talking), the story is neat but it's the story that also ruins this game.
You see there's a bunch of cutscenes. You get a cutscene after every 1-2 minutes of gameplay and that kills the game. It's constantly stopping the gameplay. Pulls you right out of it in the very moments when you're enjoying yourself.
The story is neat but cutscenes are spammed...like often...very often!
And just because of cutscenes i would like to give thumbs down to this game. It's really that bad, yes. You have to play it to understand it. It's just...ugghhh.
However, the gameplay is still supreme. The levels and music and added secrets are still all top-notch so i'm giving this a thumbs up. But only get it on a sale.
Because of the cutscene spamming, that makes it more of a cartoon rather than a game, i can't say that it's worth the full price.
Maybe get the game when it's like -50% or so. You're better off playing the original.
