Capsule Review: DuckTales: Remastered

A 2D platformer that’s a remake of the NES original. It’s lovingly-rendered nostalgia that holds up pretty well, with gorgeous character animation, beautiful soundtrack, and tight gameplay as you explore levels looking for treasure. A single play-through is two to three hours or so. The intro and finale levels, which were added for the remake, aren’t as well-designed as the original levels, but those are all still there and quite fun. The difficulty settings are a bit odd and for most players I’d recommend playing on Easy.

I Stopped Playing When: I finished the game. Unlocking everything in the gallery would have required additional playthroughs; I felt no need to bother with this.

Docprof's Rating:

Three Stars: Good. I liked the game enough to finish it (or just play it a bunch, for games that don't end). I recommend it to most genre fans.
