Tales of derring do, bad and good luck tales

Of all the classic games getting HD remasters over the past few years surely Capcom could do wrong with Ducktales, a classic from the NES that I never had the privilege to play since I was loyal to Sega. The blocky 8-bit sprites are now lovely hand-drawn animations and the backgrounds are now 3D, which I found a little incongruous to begin with but they work well with each other. The DuckTales cast return to voice the characters, which gives it even more of a cartoon feel. As a remaster it's fine.

The gameplay is a bit of a let-down. It's the standard platformer controls, and virtually identical to the NES, but the collision detection is far from perfect and the lenghty cut-scenes, inserted to give the overall story more coherence, are not skippable, which begins to grate after a first play-through.

There are 20 trophies in total, and not only is there no platinum, there isn't even any gold trophies. A few of them are ruthlessly hard and the game just doesn't have enough to offer to make fighting for them worth it.

You'll probably get about 1.5 play-throughs of this game before you get bored of it. It's not bad, but there certainly is room left for improvement.
