I bought Duck Tales: Remastered yesterday, and just completed it today. I have to say, it was a lot of fun. Having not played the original on the NES much I can't comment much on the differences, but I found the old one extremely difficult compared to Remastered. It was made easier by the fluid controls - I didn't have to battle once with it, and if I remember correctly, to perform the pogo on the NES you had to push down and B, whereas on Remastered, as long as you're in the air and press B, the pogo will work. I found this very pleasant. My Xbox 360 controller worked without even having to configure it. I knew I was going to love the game as soon as I was navigating the menus using it.
I've noticed a lot of negative reviews regarding the cut scenes, but I enjoyed them on my first play through. The animation and voice overs were amazing, and it followed the story from beginning to finish. It was literally like playing an interactive story of Duck Tales, not just a platformer. I heard after a recent update you can actually turn them off, but on your first run through I would recommend keeping them on just so you can see how beautiful this game really is.
Great sound, great graphics, dynamic bosses with more than a single move.. this title is a must have for platform lovers and Duck Tale fans alike. While the Capcom special is on it's currently half price - you really have no excuse.
