"Lost in Translation"

REVIEW |

Author: Rando Evans  

If you can remember the 90s in video gaming, Disney was adept at handing out their licenses to some pretty good platforming titles (Ducktails, Chip n’ Dale Rescue Rangers, Alladin, the list goes on). Not only did these games capture superb graphics and animation, but they offered some really unique platforming challenges. Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse was another one of those solid platforming titles that was initially released in 1991 and has been remade into a 2D / 3D title.

The remake of Castle of Illusion is brilliant in its look and design. SEGA Australia (in which this will be their last title) has kept the Disney tradition of creating a very vibrant, fluid, and great looking game. Add in the talented voice of Richard McGonagle as the narrator and you have something that’s had a lot of care and heart put into it.

Gameplay in Castle of Illusion is generally the same as it was in 1991. Mickey will jump, bounce on his foes and collect items and he progresses through the game. It’s all fairly basic, but this is to be expected considering it’s quite an old game at this point. Long time fans will find though, that many puzzles and level designs have changed up a bit to keep things fresh.

However, in its update, Castle of Illusion has lost a bit of what made it a great platformer: controls. The 2.5 platforming can cause some visual impairment while jumping, and overall Mickey feels a bit delayed and juttery in his movements. This is a weak link for a genre based on tight gameplay, and sad to see this important element take a backseat to updated graphics.

All in all though, Castle of Illusion offers a good addition for the genre(albeit a short one) and is worth a playthrough, especially for old fans that want to see the changes.

GameDynamo's Score for Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse (PS3)
Graphics
A high mark, and the best part of the game.
Sound
Great music and top-notch voice work.
Gameplay
Tight controls take a backseat to the graphics.
Play Value
Exceedingly short with very little else to do.
 
Final Score  66  
While the graphics are excellent, the once great platforming has been lost somewhere in the mix.
