A great game in it's own right, it's one of the few remake games that does more that do more than just update the graphics of the original. They make the sprites like the cartoon, get all the VAs from the show they can, polish up the music, and add to the levels to give more of a challenge, as well as a story.

A definite must-play if you were an 80's kid, or just like the original game. I want to d/l the series after playing this.

What do you want me to tell you? It's Ducktales Remastered.

Did you play the NES original? Did you love it? (The answer is yes)

This game *IS* the exact same game, but with better graphics, updated music and voice acting from the ACTUAL voice actors of the Ducktales cartoon, including the over 90 year old Alan Young reprising his role as Scrooge McDuck

Oh, and you don't like the updated music and want your Moon theme unaltered and nostaligically glorious? Well, guess what? They have an option to play all the original 8-bit sound tracks from the original game!

The only downside to this game is that some of the cutscenes can't be skipped. But because the setting, voices and character sprites are all recreated from the TV show, watching the cutscenes feels like you are watching the original cartoon! Is that downside? I suppose if you had no childhood, it is.

Bottom line. This game is just as great as it's predecessor. Have you ever played a game where it was obvious right from the start that the developers loved making it? That's what happened here. It's clear the devs really enjoyed both the original game and the source material and wanted to make their game faithful to their nostaliga. And if you loved either of those things yourself, you'll appreciate the efforts they took towards bringing the Ducktales video game back to life.

Game has crashed 4 times on the final boss rendering me unable to complete it. The game has been out about 20 months now and people still have this problem and it isn't acceptable really. I don't recommend this to anyone due to that.

While the game is very fun, I will have to give this game a negative score for it not having the freezing problem fixed yet. The last boss fight freezes unless I choose to skip cutscene which ruins one cutscene I could have seen and the game has also frozen at a random moment as well. Until this is fixed I am leaving a negative review. This does not freeze at all or even once on Xbox 360, there is no excuse why this can't run better on the PC without any freezing issues.
