World of Illusion: Starring Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck was the superior of the two genesis classics. They need to remake that one.

Yep, this is accurate and oddly ignored.

Not sure if I'm alone in this, but I'd be much more interested if this was World of Illusion.

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

Not alone at all, World was much better. One of the best coop games ever. I'd also love a Quackshot remake.

Also in regards to the boss, haven't played this myself, can't you just duck under that glove?

I haven't played this one, but in the original, I think you had to duck under the glove.

@crowson: it was painfully obvious that ducking under the glove was the way to go here too.

@sub_o: It is impossible to know whether that is the case or not, though. Same as with Rayman Legends. I don't know if just the act of trying to QL while playing makes it that much more difficult or these two are just not very good at platformers, but whatever the case, it seems pretty clear to me they take it out on the games. They miss one jump or have trouble with one section and suddenly the mechanic is unpleasant, the boss fight is unfair, or the jump is laggy. It's more annoying than that friend you had that always complained about the controller not working right cause these guys carry clout when they say this bullshit.

I want an HD version of Maui Mallard, that game was so much fun. If they keep remaking their old platformers maybe it'll happen...

The Magical Quest games should be remade. Those are truly the ones that give me the most nostalgia, so they are better. Plus they're genuinely good games despite nostalgia

You could hear it in the video. Brad hits jump and there's a huge delay. Go to 17:30, and turn up the volume.

It could be their equipment, but that delay Brad had to put up was HUUUUUUGGGEE.

Is it me, or does the narrator at the beginning sound a lot like the narrator from 500 Days of Summer?

Wow - can they redo this QL using the duck button, geez! The original had the same delayed jumping mechanic and it played just fine on the Sega Genesis.

It's just Brad being Brad at Video Games again.

But uh, that laggy jump doesn't look like a "mechanic," at least in this version.

2 minutes 40 seconds to Brad.

Original game had far superior animation. I know you can say since this is 3D and the animation is more fluid it's better, but no. Take a look at the original game. There was a lot of really well made stuff, like the basic jump animation, that gave the game a really nice responsive feel to play. This just looks... plain.

edit--- Yeah this looks like it was put together by people who don't understand why 2D platformers are still popular. Whole bunch of bells and whistles trying to make it look like something entirely different than what it is.

Playing this on PS3 and got the original as a preorder bonus two weeks ago. Even after all these years after playing this on Genesis I knew to duck. I know you guys play 360 because of your setup, and what not, but it plays great on PS3.

Duder, again, go to 17:30 and listen to that click delay. This has nothing to do with Brad. I know I couldn't play with that crap.

Holy crap, the jumping sounds terrible.

This was developed by Sega Studios Australia (also known as The Creative Assembly Australia), which SEGA announced they were closing down later this year. Guess there won't be a patch!

I've never played this game or the original, but i'm pretty sure that you have to duck at that boss.

Brad ducks a bunch of times during other levels and when jeff was making Mickey breakdance, he got mickey to duck a couple times, I was hoping for a euraka from Jeff or Brad upon seeing the duck animation, but it never occured :(

Yeah, after looking at the Steam Forums it does seem to be an excessive delay on the jumping. But - I still vividly remember the original game having very "floaty" controls back in the day. Should be an easy patch to tighten up the controls - dontcha think?

Not sure how I feel about that spring punch attack. It should be telegraphed because of the design of the jump, but how to dodge the attack is also inconsistent. Even when dodging the attack Mickey was still kinda clipping through the glove so it may be an animation which takes its hitbox with it? I'm not too sure.

Seems to be some issue with how the game runs in full screen (on pc), people saying running it in windowed mode gets rid of the awful lag, and saying it forces 24hz refresh at full screen. Maybe the same thing is true of the 360 version but there you have no ability to change that.

I'd be interested to see if the same thing is true for the ps3 version.

The best, only 2 min 30 seconds into it and Brad runs under the shadow of the jack-in-the-box and gets hit, 5 seconds later, he lost all 3 hearts and dies.
