With three hits and three duds from Capcom/Disney years that you might remember with varying levels of fondness, the Disney Afternoon Collection is clearly aimed at children of the 90s. I have trouble seeing its appeal to anyone else. But if vintage duck-based platformers are your thing, grab a Capri Sun and a handful of Gushers and invite your friends over to play.

Six retro games to remind you that games from the good old days were difficult, but relentlessly charming.

The Disney Afternoon Collection makes it easy to re-live the part of the '90s that's worth re-living, i.e. the part that has doesn't involve neon shoelaces.

As an important piece of gaming preservation, I'd almost say that Disney Afternoon Collection is worth picking up just for the DuckTales and Chip 'n Dale sequels, but the truth is nearly every game deserves to be played at least once. For now I can only dream of Adventures in Magic Kingdom, Little Mermaid, and Mickey Mousecapade as DLC.

Despite commendable frills, the point of this collection is games, and the truth is that these games are just old. Some are fun, others are less-so, but ultimately what you're getting is average to good platforming across the entire package with a heady shot of nostalgia, if that applies to your age bracket. DuckTales will be the highlight for some, and given that DuckTales Remastered exists you'll also want to ask yourself if you might prefer that instead. That said, at $20 it's tough to go wrong with The Disney Afternoon, and like most things Disney, you're pretty much guaranteed to have fun. That's more than many games can say, regardless of which decade they hail from.

The Disney Afternoon Collection offers six of the best 8-bit games developed by Disney and Capcom to NES with a lot of new content. However, although for people who haven't played them in the past is a recommended option, for veterans it will not be good enough.

The Disney Afternoon Collection is a well compiled anthology of Capcom's classic Disney games. There's been a lot of care put into the collection and the extra modes have been implemented very well, but there are a couple of issues that could do with ironing out, such as the slowdown in certain sections. It'll be a blast of nostalgia for those who played the games when they were first released almost 30 years ago, as well as fun for a newer audience.

The Disney Afternoon Collection may not have the consistency of Capcom's previous work with the Eclipse Engine, thanks to its library varying in quality. But it is just as reverent and breezy, and the addition of the Rewind feature helps ease the journey into the past. If you were a fan of even a few of these games, you owe it to yourself to see them presented so respectfully for a modern audience.

Six classic fun games that come with interesting an nostalgic extras. Maybe they are not the best games in the NES catalog, but they are great games. We like the new modes, graphical improvements and the 'save options'.

Capcom's partnership with Disney back in the 8-bit era led to some really fantastic games, six of which have been brought back via The Disney Afternoon Collection. On top of making these often difficult games more accessible with a rewind feature, also having competitive game options like Time Attack and Boss Rush make The Disney Afternoon Collection a worthwhile trip back to the past.
