Learn the true ways of old-school gaming with this priceless gem!
DuckTales Remastered is a remake of Capcom's 1989 NES game. I remember playing it very well, and when I heard about a remake. It woke the inner child in me. Bought it, enjoy it, and I still do.
In the original game, there was not much a story plot, but in the Remastered edition, there is, and it has the classic elements from the DuckTales series. What I enjoyed also was the original voice cast lended their voice, with the exception of Fenton McQuack (Gizmoduck), who is voiced by Eric Bauza, and not Hamilton Camp, because he passed away in 2005.
Watching every cut-scene is like watching an episode of DuckTales. The elements, humor, and personalities are back, and they are fun to see, but you are forced to see the same scenes every time you select a stage for example. You can skip them, but you would have to press start, and select skip scene. It would have been nice if there was an option in the game where you can turn off the cut scenes.
The game mechanic are also here. Select a stage, collect diamonds, beat the boss, move to another stage. The control is responsive, and you can set up the difficulty of the game to eaither Easy, Normal, or Hard. When you beat the game in Hard, you unlock Extra Hard Mode. I also liked the extra twist they put on the bosses when you fight them.
One thing I also liked about the game is that in the original NES, if you loose all your lives, GAME OVER! Back to the title screen, and start all over again. Why do I like that? Because that is what made NES games challenging. In this case, you loose all your lives, back to the stage select screen. Remember that the object of the game is to make it old school, like back in them days. Frustrating, but a good challenge.
What made DuckTales famous was the music in the game. The Moon Stage, and Transylvania where my favorite music on the NES, and I like how they remastered each stage music, and they are perfect. I still like both music, but now I like the Himalayas stage music.Gret job on the music.
Unfortunately the re playability in the game is short. Yes, you can unlock cool feature in the game with the diamonds you collect, but I beleive you can do that in about two or three weeks if you put your time. Still, this is a great game.
I recommend this game for Old Schoolers, to relive those classic moments, and also to players that never played the original NES, and wants a good challenge.
