DuckTales: Remastered is a remastering of the original DuckTales game with the original cast and voice actors.

I played this game for 7 hours, and found it to be incredibly, incredibly difficult.

First, I'll briefly talk about the game itself. I played on a controller and the controls were tight and responsive, easy to use and very fun. The game was bright, colourful and looks beautiful, they've done a great job remastering the scenes and levels. The gameplay is very classic and enjoyable, and the story whimsical and fun.

Next, and just for a moment, I'll talk about the voice actors. One of the big draws of the game is that the original audio has been remastered by re-recording using the original cast of the original DuckTales game. This, at times, is pretty cool! But, after a while, I felt that the voice of Scrooge McDuck to just be a little "too old". Like, I know that sounds mean, but some of the lines seemed very strained and some incomprehensible without subtitles. While awesome to have the original voice actor back, I feel this drained a little of the vibrant colour from the game, for me.

And now, I'll discuss the difficulty of the game. My god this game is hard. Of the 7 hours I played, at least 3-4 were spent on the last level. The game uses a Lives system which, if you run out of, it's game over. Start again. Not the game, but the level.

The final level of the game takes about 20+ minutes to complete. If you run out of lives, on the final bossfight, you have to re-do the entire level again. I have never been so frustrated by something that I felt, while playing, should be so easy. Many controller slams were had. But, in a good way. In an I WILL COMPLETE THIS I SWEAR TO GOD way, which so many games wish they could achieve in this day and age. If you're up to a challenge, this is the game for you. Trust me.

Oh, did I mention I completed it on Normal mode? Yeah. There's a Hard Mode too. I couldn't even imagine completing Hard Mode.

Oh, and after Hard Mode, there's Extreme Mode.

Highly recommended for gamers who like a challenge.

While I must admit that I barely played the original NES game, DuckTales Remastered is an instant nostalgia bomb from the moment you press start. From the colorful sprites of all our favorite characters, to the original voices from the cartoon show, and the theme song, everything feels so perfect at the beginning. It really isn't just a "remake" of the original game, it's also a reunion for people who were fans of the show as well.

With colorful graphics, tight controls, fun gameplay, and great music, Remastered also attempts to make fans of the original game feel at home. However, with the inclusion of many pesky and intruding cutscenes, the wonderful flow of the game grinds to a complete halt. Some can be welcome -- introducing a new level or terrifying boss. But other cutscenes will activate whenever you complete trivial "objectives", which can be anything from finding a token or aiding Launchpad fix his plane. They interupt a bit too often, and while there is an option to skip these (by pausing the game during the cutscene, selecting "skip cutscene", then confirming), sometimes there's two or three back to back, making you have to awkwardly repeat the process. It doesn't help that if you Game Over and have to repeat a stage... well, get ready to skip all those cutscenes again! I understand they were just trying to add story to a game where there was none (except perhaps in the instruction manual of the original), however, it is still frustrating to repeatedly have to keep skipping cutscenes.

Despite that one flaw, DuckTales Remastered is an easy game to get into and a very rewarding one to complete. Scrooge and all his companions are back for a DuckTales encore that seemed long overdue. And I'm very happy to have been apart of it! DuckTales fans, pick this one up! Fans of the original game or just fans of old school side-scrollers in general, maybe wait til it's on sale.

Happy adventuring!!!

One of the most fun platform games I've played. After seeing the original and the big change this game did with HD character and enemy models and actual voices, it's definitely worth the buy. Also it's challenging so for anyone wanting a game that's hard to beat and not just some boring easy game, this will do the trick. Plus bonus pogo sticks on a cane who wouldn't love to do that.

Sem dúvidas este é o jogo que as empresas deveriam se inspirar para poder fazer os grandes remakes.

O jogo em si é o mesmo de anos atras. Tanto da versao de NES quanto Gameboy Classic. Porém, com os gráficos atuais.

Nível de dificuldade é o mesmo da época.

Perfeito ♥

Despite watching the cartoon daily as a kid, I never actually played Capcom's classic DuckTales on NES, so I wasn't really sure what I was getting into with this. I was really only interested because WayForward was involved, and because I'd heard stories that the NES game was actually pretty great.

Well, lo and behold, I actually loved DuckTales: Remastered. Virt did a fantastic job on remaking the music, and everyone involved did a great job at updating the levels, and, apparently, adding two new ones. The somewhat open-like gameplay that a few levels had gave me a bit of a Metroid vibe, something I was not expecting from a game based on talking ducks.

The only real negative I'd have with this game is the constant cutscenes. The writing is rather charming, like watching an old 80's Disney cartoon, but they start to get on your nerves when they play every five minutes. It's also a rather short game, as my first run of the game, on PS3, took about 4 hours. However, this is one of the few games that, immediately after I finished, I began again on a higher difficulty.

The bosses are fun to fight, the stages are fun to traverse, the music is great, and the controls work well enough. Another great game from WayForward.
