Video Game Review: DuckTales 2 (NES)

Sequel games should be improvements over their predecessors. DuckTales 2 is not.

Granted, it’s not a terrible game and it’s still kind of fun to play but it’s really just more of the same with worse level design and some new mechanics that sort of bog the gameplay down a bit.

I guess I expected more but maybe I shouldn’t have. I always hear people praise the DuckTales game but I never hear anyone actually talk about the sequel. I thought that might be due to the several years that passed before this one came out and because the original Nintendo was already dying due to next gen consoles.

This honestly just feels like a re-tread trying to cash in on a once hot game while the creators behind this installment didn’t have the talent, drive and creativity to make it worthwhile to the consumer.

If you absolutely love the first game, this may be worth checking out just to try some new levels but you’ll probably still find it to be a disappointment.

Rating: 6.5/10
Pairs well with: its predecessor, as well as the other Disney games for the original Nintendo.
