Starring a cast of beloved Disney characters, The Disney Afternoon Collection takes you back to a golden era of gaming and afternoons filled with adventure. Hunt for treasure around the globe as Scrooge McDuck, fight crime as the hero Darkwing Duck, take to the skies as ace pilot Baloo the bear, and enjoy co-op as Chip and Dale to take down Fat Cat.
The collection includes the following six games:
1. Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers
2. Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers 2
4. DuckTales 2
5. Darkwing Duck
All six classic games feature new and improved visuals and include filtering options that replicate a retro look and feel.
This collection also offers new ways to play with Boss Rush and Time Attack modes, each of which encourages time-based gameplay and features online leaderboards. Additionally, a new “Rewind” feature makes these challenging titles more accessible for newcomers, with the option to rewind time and enjoy a swift recovery from blunders. Best of all, the in-game Museum will provide history buffs with a wealth of extras to celebrate the era of the original releases, such as concept art, and music – all lovingly preserved.

Frankly speaking, this is not what I expected after two amazing Disney remasters released some time ago. The games are fun and all, they do bring wonderful memories but let's be honest. It's a quick attempt to cash in on your nostalgia. I'm willing to pay more but do make a better port. Make the graphics high resolution instead of releasing a licensed emulator with a bunch of classic roms.
The Disney Afternoon Collection collects six different Capcom developed Disney NES games, put together by the team that worked on the Mega Man Legacy collection. DuckTales has more recently been remade but I'd rather play the original version included here, along with its good sequel. The Chip 'n Dale games popularity comes more from the ability to play them with two players and while they can be fun they don't hold up as well as some other NES classics. It's likely older games would have missed both series sequels as they released further into the Super Nintendo's life. Darkwing Duck is another game that would be more enjoyable for its time, it plays like a Mega Man game with less interesting level design and without the weapon variety, making it a fairly mediocre side scrolling shooter when played now. TaleSpin is likely the one played the least, the screen scrolls as you fly around destroying enemies, you can flip the craft upside down allowing you to fire behind you, it's not that interesting of a shooter. There isn't that much in the way of extras, slightly updated visuals, a rewind feature to make the games easier, and some artwork to look at. If you used to really enjoy these games this can be worth a buy but with most of them just being ok and not much in the way of new content it is a high asking price.
