DuckTales: Remastered reviews score round-up

By Dave Cook, Monday, 12 August 2013 08:15 GMT

DuckTales: Remastered’s reviews are dropping like dead ducks shot out of the sky by some moustache twirling poacher. We’ve got all the scores here.

We don’t do reviews here on VG247, but I’ve been playing the Steam version for a while. It’s a visually superb touch-up of the original that perfectly captures the globe-trotting vibe of the show, however, I found the narrative chit-chat broke the flow of the platforming.

That niggle aside, the remixed soundtrack is ace and seeing previous elements of the old game creep back into the new one is brilliantly nostalgic. The fan service-o-meter is off the chart as well. If you loved the show dearly then you need to try the game.

All that said, I’d probably concede that the NES original is still the better game due to its old-timey charm, tough challenge and Mega Man-esque veneer, but that’s probably the retro sentimentality creeping through.

Here are the reviews. Judge for yourself:

Polygon – 5/10
GamesRadar – 4.5/5
Edge – 5/10
Joystiq – 3/5
Meristation – 8.8/10
The Escapist – 4.5/5
Ready-Up – 8/10
Videogamer – 6/10
GodisaGeek – 9/10
ShopTo – No Score
GamerGen – 16/20
Press-Start – 4.5/5
Gamespot – 4/10
Viciojuegos – 88/100
Vandal – 8/10
Vooks – 4/5
Stevivor – 8.5/10
