DuckTales: Remastered - Review-Übersicht internationaler Test-Wertungen
GamesRadar - 4,5 von 5
Topping off the package are tons of unlockables--concept drawings, character sketches, artwork from the TV show, and more--that extend the game's lifespan beyond the couple of hours it'll take you to reach the ending. Whether you're a Disney devotee, a retro enthusiast, or just a fan of well-crafted platformers, there's plenty to enjoy. Though DuckTales Remastered might not live up to its esteemed precursor in every single regard, it surpasses it in others, and ends up incredibly fun on the whole. Woo-hoo indeed.
The Escapist - 4,5 von 5
This is a retro re-release at its finest. The game feels like its classic counterpart, but it has a number of improvements to make it more palatable to a modern gaming audience. DuckTales: Remastered is a must-have game for any fan of retro titles or the DuckTales franchise in general. Plus, you can just leave it on the title screen and loop the 8-bit theme song indefinitely. Woo-oo!

DuckTales: Remastered is, if you didn't already realise, one of the most respectful remasters that I've played in recent years. The vibe and the feel of the original game are still here, but the game has been modified and tweaked ever so slightly to bring it into the modern day with few growing pains. The unforgivable difficulty levels as well as the (relatively) short story length are what will ultimately bring it down form being a perfect remaster of an incredibly popular game. It's hard to say whether DuckTales: Remastered would be the game for you – but with so much work going into this remaster to the point where it feels and looks like a brand new game, the price tag doesn't seem that steep. If you're a DuckTales aficionado ad love everything about the series, or even just the game – this is an absolute must buy. If you're not, but enjoy challenging, aesthetically pleasing platformers that don't overstay their welcomes there's a good chance you'll still enjoy DuckTales: Remastered. Just make sure you visit Scrooge's vault at least once for instant nostalgia.
Videogamer - 6 von 10
Nostalgia does play a huge part in why this is somewhat successful - if you were part of that era, the memories that'll come flooding back make it almost worth the purchase alone. Even then, however, it's certainly not difficult in a pleasing way unless you're a sadist. Those who have never sampled its 'goods' should probably not bother. Throw in that the artstyle isn't as pleasing in motion as it is in stills - it's nice enough but a little drab, really - and Ducktales Remastered is a nice addition to digital libraries around the world, but definitely not an essential one.
Joystiq - 3 von 5
I sympathize with WayForward and the position they found themselves in here. The team obviously has a lot of love for the Duck family, and WayForward's work demonstrates a fierce commitment to doing justice to both the DuckTales cartoon and the NES game it inspired. If anything, I'll blame DuckTales Remastered's shortcomings on the current state of digital pricing. It's unfortunate that a short but near-perfect game had to be weighed down with so much extraneous material, seemingly for the sake of padding out its length to justify a premium-priced digital release.
Polygon - 5 von 10
If WayForward and Capcom's end goal was to recreate DuckTales while modernizing the presentation, they've accomplished just that. But other modern updates to classic NES titles have found more accessible, appealing ground, paying homage while improving the weaknesses of the source material. Instead, DuckTales: Remastered is full of miserably dull and frustrating mechanics behind its updated presentation — and no visual overhaul can hide that.
Edge - 5 von 10
That main theme is still as gloriously hummable as ever, of course, though to paraphrase the lyrics ingrained in the collective memory of a generation, it neither solves a mystery, nor rewrites history. We're still unsure quite why DuckTales was deemed worthy of a remaster in the first instance, and in the latter case, the developer would clearly have been better taking a few more liberties with the source material. It's easy to admire the developer's evident love for the NES game – it's clearly been handled with the kind of care only a genuine fan would provide – but after a few repetitive hours bouncing around DuckTales' pretty but unremarkable worlds you'll begin to realise that some treasures aren't worth the effort of unearthing.
Gamespot - 4 von 10
Wayforward Technologies focused on the wrong elements in their attempt to bring DuckTales to the modern era. Getting the cartoon voice actors to reprise their roles is kind of neat, but now there are way too many tedious story segments. Meanwhile, the action has been made worse because of the less responsive controls, and there haven't been any elements added to make the simple combat and jumping more interesting. DuckTales Remastered will make you doubt happy memories from your childhood, or leave you baffled as to why people were nostalgic for such dull platforming in the first place.
