Great remake! Worth getting
 
We played the crap out of this as a kid and I'm very pleased how this one turned out. The level layouts are pretty much intact with some 3D sections thrown in every now and then. There's also new collectibles to find and a very small HUB to explore. The controls are a bit stiff but you get used to them, like any platformer you need to figure out how the momentum of your jumps work, traction, etc. before you can get really good.

I liked the Genesis music better instead of the new tracks, that is probably just nostalgia talking, but the boss and storm level tracks were some of my all-time favorite on the Genesis. Luckily you can choose to use the old music if you like.

I think this is a very good example of how to do a remake. You give it a fresh coat of paint while keep true to what made it great to satisfy curmudgeons like us kids of the 80s and 90s. Hope this will sell very well to reward the team that did an excellent job on it and QuackShot will be next.

They did a great job with this remake. The only parts that were a little off were the 3D platforming sections but it wasn't a deal breaker. That boss fight with the red dragon was a little irritating. I probably died a dozen times botching the cookie jumps between waves fighting him. It's a great remake and a fun trip down memory lane but I think the fifteen dollar price of admission is just a little high unless you really loved this game back on Genesis, which I did. If you're a first timer, I would wait for the inevitable sale.

Just started the game about an hour ago. Wow, this game is really really good. For sure worth the 15 dollars to me, and it is my first time playing it.

Just downloaded it last night but haven't played it yet - can't wait to get home & dive into it tonight.:woop:

Great platforming action, great graphics, great music all in one amazing little game. This is how remakes/re-imagenings should be done. Reminded me of the old mario/banjo-kazooie games from back in the day.

I hope they bring out World of Illusion after this.

Disagree. I find the controls atrocious. You press the jump button and the mouse jumps a second later. Beyond frustrating.

awesome remake love it...

I remember playing this game for 100's of hours on sega. I never got enough of it. Saw the gameplay footage and couldn't believe how much better the graphics. I hope the gameplay is the same as in the sega days when I finally decide to get it or if they rerelease for one

I haven't played it yet on the Xbox 360. But I did brought it and downloaded. I'll try playing it tomorrow.

But I did played it a bit on the PS 3 because I preorder it due to the nice promo they gave to it a bit exclusive. Which was getting the original Sega Genesis/Megadrive version as a preorder bonus. And all I can say is, it was worth it for me. The fact that you can play using the old original songs from the original Genesis/Megadrive is a nice bonus. And the stages are pretty good designed. It still has that old feel to it a bit. :)

Then again I will say/admit that Mickey's Castle of Illusions was my 2nd Sega Genesis game. And so I played it a lot/loved it. As a young/child gamer back then. And it getting a HD special remake/re-imagine is a wonderful and retro feeling I got when it was announced. One of the best 15$ I spent on both consoles.:)

P.S. I am a big Disney fan a bit. Mainly a sucker for Mickey/Donald things mostly. :p.

It was fun, I found the lobby system a bit confusing because I played this over a long period of time and sometimes had trouble finding what room I needed to go in. It was also a little bit easy, it was fun though. I would say 6.5 out of 10. Ducktales is way better but way harder.

Good, but not $15 good
 
I was overjoyed when this game was announced and even more happy when I downloaded it. This brought back a lot of Genesis memories. Though the game was good, I felt it wasn't worth the $15 pricetag. I do recommend this game for a relatively easy 400 Gamerscore, but wait for a price drop.
