An amazing nostalgia trip for anyone who remembers the cartooncommanderhavoc | Dec. 2, 2013 | See all commanderhavoc's reviews »
When I was young, I had the chance to see the really REALLY awesome cartoon when it was on TV here in Sweden and I absolutely loved it, along with that addictive theme song, it will never leave! And this remake of the classic NES game does a really great job at capturing the spirit of the cartoon as it feels like an old and lost episode that was never aired, they even managed to get several of the original voice actors to join in and reprise their parts as in the cartoon. They even added in cutscenes for the game and while many complain about them, they still are great and some even provide explanations as to what is going on, like how Scrooge, Fenton and Gyro Gearloose are able to breath on the moon and such. And of course, the theme of the cartoon is included in the game in the credits and don't be surprised if you suddenly find yourself wanting to sing along to it as it is that catchy.

I was following the production of this game since the 1st announcement, and let me tell you that it was like a love story, beginning with wayforward people loving this game since his nes roots till the jump in the wagon of the original background artists at half the production, everything since the animations, the music and the animation fluidity is amazing, and also makes my heart warm with the original voice of Scrooge Mcduck, the gameplay is perfect and the music will bring your inner child to tears, bring some snaks and sit in the floor very close to the tv while playing, instant time travel to your childhood

Duck tales remastered is an ok game by today's standards. Thats it. Aside from cutscenes that drag on too long and remastered graphics, not a whole lot was put into the game to make it stand out from its classic roots. What it does do is play the nostalgia card on older gamers, reliving the thrill of playing this platformer/ puzzler as they were a kid, a testament to games that can withstand the test of time. If you have the extra money and want to go on a nostalgic journey, by all means go ahead, but for all others who aren't fans of the genre or in the title itself, I strongly recommend you don't buy.

While WayForward didn't exactly rewrite history with this re-release, it is indeed a great game and even better if you can remember the original. I played Ducktales to death on my old NES so I was super stoked when I heard of this update. It is a tad pricey considering the rather short length but I had a lot of fun playing it and it brought back a ton of memories. For me it was worth it just to hear the original voice of Scrooge McDuck again but if you are not a big platforming fan or never played the original you might want to wait for a good sale before picking this up.

Ducktales Remastered is a nostalgia trip from start to end. Gameplay is faithful to the original. Graphics and audio are remastered from scratch, but maintain the same theme.The story that is crafted around the insanity of the original game's structure hits all the right chords of a DuckTales cartoon with fantastic writing and voice acting, and every cut scene can be skipped with two button presses for those who aren't interested. In short anyone who is a fan of 2D action platformers should be checking out DuckTales.
