"Now this was the REAL classic Capcom-Disney team-up! This remake of the Capcom platformer was lovingly recreated, with a freaking ton of care to detail. Like, they were so meticulous with recreating the original, that they bring back the freaking 96 year old voice actor for Scrooge, Alan Young! Jeebus! That is dedication to your character! Even if Alan hadn't been at such a ripe old age, I'd half expect him to rise from the grave just to reprise his role! They even bought in the animators who had worked on the original game for even further detail! And the gameplay is just as solid as the original Capcom version! It's still really satisfying to lead Scrooge treasure hunting through these gorgeous, creative environments! And I love the satisfying way Scrooge still bounces from enemy to enemy with his pogo-stick cane! And the music is just geared towards that retro nostalgia! Many people's biggest complaint with Ducktales Remastered was that emphasis on dialogue and story... But this can be pretty obstrusive on the gameplay and jar the experience a bit. As great a job as the voice actors are doing in these cutscenes. But apart from that, there's very little to complain about in what is a very affectionately recreated rendition of the timeless Ducktales platformer!"

"Who doesn't remember this one? This was one of the first real gems in Disney Interactive Studios. It's surprising the movie cash-in actually turned out to be one of the most substansial platformers on the Genesis! You swordswipe and apple-throw your way with Aladdin... as you navigate through deserts, jungles and caves. Even Genie's lamp gets its own stage! It had memorable, catchy Genesis music, clear story-telling, smooth jump puzzles, and it could be brutally tough! So much so that I never actually finished it! But hey, I still enjoy trying."
