DuckTales Remastered may be a redo, but with modern additions and some fun twists, it's easy to get sucked back into the world of Scrooge McDuck. Detailed scene settings and familiar voices bring the plot to life, and the storytelling builds momentum from start to finish. A variety of levels and challenging boss battles will test younger players but aren't so hard they shouldn't give it a try. There are plenty of hidden gems, hearts, and desserts to help you build Scrooge's fortune and continue through each level with enough health to defeat the boss at the end. Plus there are no worries about having to restart a whole level or lose all your loot when Scrooge loses all his lives because the game lets you restart with all your earnings in the same section without having to restart.

Unfortunately, although the story is engaging, it's told very slowly, which can make it a challenge to sit through at times. Controlling Scrooge also can become repetitive since the same maneuvers are used to defeat enemies time after time. Plus, unless you crank up the difficulty to its maximum setting, the easier settings can allow gamers to race through the adventure very quickly. Overall, if you want to take a ride down memory lane or are new to the DuckTales franchise, this is a good way to get acquainted with the characters from Duckburg; just don't be surprised when its repetitive play and short stages means you finish it in a few short hours.
