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.

A classic retro platforming at its finest.

This version remastered doesn't try to do anything new.
What it does, however, it does with a sense of style that doesn't spoil your childhood memories.

A must-have game for any fan of retro titles or the DuckTales franchise in general.
Plus, you can just leave it on the title screen and loop the theme song indefinitely. Woo-oo!

If you were a child of the 80s, and recall Ducktales cartoons and the original NES game, then this is a blast of nostalgic goodness. Looks fantastic, and the controls are crisp and responsive. Being a remake of an NES title, it can be a little short. The game can beaten in one sitting (but does not have to be, unless on the Extreme difficulty level), and can be 100% completed in under 10 hours. Gotten on sale though, it's well worth it.

This is a Remake of the classic hit, with the same name. I trully recommend anybody! Nice voice acting, beatiful arts, and the entire mood of the game is also the same just like the classic version. I would like to see other classics' modernized version just like this. The games trademark "pogo-jump" returned, and when I played, I never felt this game shame to the classic NES version.

Whether it’s from the TV cartoon series or Comic books, at one point many seen, played or read something, somewhere about Ducktales. In this remastered title you are able to travel back in time in your memories and experience a classic game from a timeless genre. As Scrooge McDuck, you are about to travel to mysterious places filled with dangerous enemies in order to acquire five Treasures to add to your insane pool of wealth. With the help of your three nephews you will face different scenarios like the forest, snow environments and dark underground mines (among other places). The gameplay mechanics are what many can expect from a platform standpoint and while it may not appear nothing demanding, simple things like jumping from point A to point B will highly depend on how used you are playing similar titles. I often failed a simple jump not because of bad timing but because my own perception of space between two platforms which meant I was being put to the test and patience. It may seem easy for most, but like everything, every player have different strengths or weaknesses depending on the genre.

Aside from maybe one Boss or another, the game is set with a standard difficulty. After around 6 hours I managed to finish the game and was watching the credits. If you are a fan of the DuckTales stories this game can be a great “snack” to play between those lengthy, high story based games. In the end, it is a little adventure with vibrant colors and happy environments that is great to play in short burst if you are taking a break from something.

DuckTales! Woo-oo!
The immortal classics have returned - with exactly the same gaming experience covered in perfectly remade visuals. Nothing less, nothing more. And if you feel like missing those good ol' times, this one would definitely do the trick.
