Maybe a little late to the party but I've been playin this on PS3 via the free PS+ download and the jumping feels fine to me. It responds fine, it just seems like the actual jump itself is a little floaty.

I'm enjoying this. Never played the original.

/End completely irrelevant commentary on old video.

Totally just came back to this video to see if anyone had commented on the jumping after it went free on PS Plus. There is definitely a delay to the jump but I managed to get used to it. The final boss is insanely hard, though. I literally have every collectable but like 20 gems and went into the final boss with 20+ lives and finally gave up after losing all those lives and another dozen continues worth. Game is worth the price of free but I wouldn't pay more than $5 for it.

I like the sub-levels that get you the cards/peppers/statues and some of the hidden collectables are fun to find. And some of the levels are pretty great looking although they also tend to perform poorly. I would say this game was better than Jeff and Brad made it out to be but the jumping controls are pretty awful. But I did manage to get used to them so there is that.

@confideration: I did not think of that. Or we have our next game for Breaking Brad.

Just finished the game yesterday (on 360), and the latency really isn't that big of a deal. Especially since the game is so easy. If you are at all interested just give it a shot, it's a pretty good remake.

Oh, and yes, Magical Quest is definitely the best Mickey Mouse game.

Yikes, that sounds like almost a full second delay on the jump. For a platformer a delay like that is a gamebreaker no matter how nice its other elements are.

The jumping issue seems very disappointing. I loved the original game on the Mega Drive and everything about this game looks really good but I think I would get as frustrated as Brad seemed in this Quick Look if the button presses are not very responsive.

I think I will hold off from buying this for now. Hopefully they can release a patch to sort out the controller issue.

Despite everything and all the comments I think this game looks and sounds beautiful. Hopefully they can patch the one major issue. It shouldn't be too hard comparable to making this thing right?

@masonl87: That's how Mickey's ears are supposed to be. His ears must always be perfect circles.

Watched this after Unpro Friday and wow this game looks like garbage compared to the original. In other news, I'm now playing the original on my Genesis now.

I was surprised to hear about the hate for this game on UPF since I enjoyed it a lot for the PS3, so it explains a lot that they were playing the XBLA version that is busted.

Sad to hear that the jumping is laggy in this game.

Can't speak for the 360 version but on the PC/Steam version jump isn't as laggy as it appears to be in this video. In fact it's got no noticeable lag.

I actually never bought the original for my Mega Drive even though it was easily one of the highest rated games at the time. 90% across the board if I recall correctly. Instead I bought Duck Shot which I loved to bits. Always liked Donald more than the mouse.

Having said all that, this remake is good fun. Neat little platformer.

I loved Quackshot, that was the Disney game I played to death on Genesis. I rented Castle and World plenty though. I really hope they something similar for Donald.

I preordered the game on PS3 and hadn't played it before I saw this quicklook. Thank fuck there is no jump lag on the PS3 version, it plays perfectly.

I've finally had time to complete the game, and as I mention in the quote above there is no control lag at all, jumps, turns etc are spot on. When I died, it was my fault, and yes for a while on the Jack in the Box I forgot to duck too. The PS3 version plays very well, there is some slow down but it's minimal. Lag though as mentioned is nonexistent.

I have a fondness for the original 16 bit title and this game does it justice (on the PS3 at least). I'm very happy with my purchase.

I really hope they patch the 360 version.

I love how Jeff released his inner Vinny there at the end.

I played the demo and the jumping didn't seem laggy at all.

Also I haven't seen the quick look yet, I'm just responding to what I see in the comments. But I guess this is one of those cases where Brad doesn't initially like the game and therefore gets overly picky and suddenly everything sucks about the game. "The jumping feels terrible, I mean LOOK at that. I pushed the jump button and he totally DIDN'T jump!"

No, Brad, you didn't push the jump button. :/

Also all of this is pure speculation, since I still haven't seen the QL.

Yeah well just wait 20 minutes before commenting, why on earth would you ever just speculate that when the video is in front of your face?

Yeah, he should have ducked, but you can hear when Jeff is playing that the jump is really delayed. I recommend you don't watch Brad QL's anymore.

I stopped watching halfway through. This game is blasphemy. I played the shit out of Castle of Illusion on Genesis. This is not Castle of Illusion.

Just to add my two cents, this game plays great on ps3. There isn't jump lag like Brad and Jeff mention.

On a different topic, the new Mickey Mouse cartoons are actually quite cool. Kind of a throwback to the ones from the 30's but with a modern edge.

I really hope they do update those controls and just tight it up a bit. The game looks like it could have been great.

THANK YOU. Hands-down most accurate comment from the lot of them. It's just depressing that it took until the third page for somebody to finally make this correction.

I played the fuck out of World of Illusion with my brother and sister as a kid.

My favorite Mickey game was Mickey Mania for the Genesis, though (again, the superior Mickey-game version). Probably an unpopular opinion, but something about that game just struck a cord with me.

Maybe unpopular but I 100% agree with you. Basing levels off classic Mickey Mouse cartoons was sheer genius. That Steamboat Willie opening? Thinking about that in HD gives me chills.

Just a shame the levels were so fucking short. Because it's conceptually brilliant.

Yep. I actually played it again recently and, nostalgia or not, I think it holds up. The Steamboat Willie opening is objectively great, because of all the stuff they jammed into that small little level. And who wouldn't love that black & white-to-color transition when the game was released?

I agree. I noticed no lag when I played through on PS3. Maybe it's just a 360 problem or something. Either way, it sucks for people that run into it, because without it the game is pretty cool. I had a lot of fun playing it.

Weird that this game has the same narrator as (500) Days of Summer. Also Sully from Uncharted.

@eternalgamer2: While I tend to agree you could hear Jeff press the button at the end and see how Mickey Didn't jump for like nearly a second afterwards. I played the demo and it didn't feel great. I didn't think it felt as bad as they were saying but it definitely wasn't great.

Oh my god the nostalgia is overwhelming.. I played this so much on my Master System. One of the best games for that platform in my opinion.

Sooo, ducking under the glove wasn't your first choice it seems. Or your second.. or third.. or 5th.
It's ok though, you did show how terrible the jumping actually is as well

Yup. Now that can't be unseen.

It has always been like that, and it was a design choice. One I will never understand.

How can you play a platformer with controls like that? It is the worst.
