    jp's Duck Tales: Remastered (PS3)

    [February 18, 2015 11:36:51 PM]
    When is an effort "good enough"? I think I hit that threshold for this game though perhaps a little on the lazy side? So, I played all of the different areas and was able to reach the bosses for each level but I wasn't able to clear any of them. I think I could do it if I had the time to practice some more and get better, but having to start all over from scratch feels too onerous for me at this time. Was it fun? Yes. Frustrating at times as well, but perhaps too long? I guess I'm still sore about getting to the boss, failing and having to start all over. It's a tough line to manage for remakes because, I'm pretty sure the original was a unforgiving - probably even more. So, do you change the design of the game to accommodate current/modern sensibilities? Do you leave it the same for authenticity?

    I'm not sure I know the answer because it depends on who the audience of the remastered game is. If you're going for a new (young) crowd who never played the original it would make sense to adapt, but if your audience is the old-timers? But if your audience is old timers, wouldn't you try to leave everything the same? (i.e. don't update the graphics, etc.)

    Anyways, worth playing even as I admit it was a bit much for me. :-)

    I should be embarrassed to admit that I've made zero progress in this game. I played the Transylvania world and almost, almost, made it to the final boss. That doesn't bode well since I was able to make it to the boss with a full set of lives in the Amazon world and still didn't clear it.

    I remember thinking the original (gameboy version) was the best thing ever - in concept. I mean, I never played it much, so I liked the idea of the game (and liked what I had seen of the show). I never got really far in the GB version either, so I guess nothing's changed here. I guess I really wish there was an easier mode for me, or a cheat code to get a ton of lives, or a more forgiving re-start system? Once you're out of lives you basically have to start over. To be fair, I could practice a lot more and I think I'd eventually get there but nowadays I simply don't have the time.

    I plan on continuing to play this - but mostly to see what the other worlds are like. I suspect they're much harder though we'll have to wait and see.

    Oh, another thing - the game has voices which is REALLY weird to me. I saw all the original cartoons in spanish so Scrooge having a Scottish accent is just strange. I know it's "correct" (or at least I assume so, I have no idea if the voice talent in the game is the same as the show, or at least trying to be as close as possible), but it just sounds strange...

    jp's opinion and rating for this game

    Fun, but too hard out of the box for me. I also didn't feel compelled enough to want to practice in order to get better.
