Overall, this collection is accurate to a fault, packed with some additional goodies and reminds us how absolutely insane we all must have been when we played these games the first time around. Bravo to Digital Eclipse and Capcom for taking a chance on some classics.

This is an excellent representation of what made these games so beloved and enjoyed, not to mention frustrating for gamers.

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.

This collection reminded me how much I loved the games as a child, and getting the theme songs out of my head is going to take a great amount of time.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The Disney Afteroon Collection is an act of faith, but also a dip in the nostalgia of the '80s and' 90s. Only one half of the products present in the collection, however, deserves to be gnawed to the bottom, but the inclusion of rewind and time trial allow you to have rewarding and pleasant solutions of gameplay.

It's a good package of entertaining games, and is presented beautifully, but it's also not essential.

It's pure nostalgia, but if you loved these games as a kid, there's just enough new features to bring you back to it again—and they hold up well enough if you have someone you'd like to introduce these games to for the first time

One more time Digital Eclipse did an excelent job adapting classic games to modern platforms. The Disney Afternoon Collection has very good emulation and extras that retro game fans should try.

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.

The Disney Afternoon Collection is a fine assortment of NES Disney Classics. None of these games reach the pinnacle of 8-bit greatness, but they're all enjoyable.

The Disney Afternoon Collection is an object lesson for how game compilations should be developed, providing rock-solid adaptation to a new platform, respecting the material's historic context, and exercising restraint. It's one hell of a collection with great visuals, rich extras and challenging time attack modes.

Objectively The Disney Afternoon Collection is quite the value. Priced at £15.99/$19.99, Capcom has given gamers quite the appetising package, whether you're familiar with Capcom's retro Disney games or not. Once again, the production values and accuracy of these emulations are second-to-none, but it's the added features – like the rewind option and abundance of original artwork – that makes this selection essential.

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.

Yes, nostalgia plays a big part in my enjoyment of these games, but I don't have blind love for The Disney Afternoon Collection. These side-scrollers have just as much charm now as they did in the late '80s and early '90s, and I'm thankful I can finally own DuckTales 2 and Chip n' Dale Rescue Rangers 2 without spending hundreds of dollars at a retro gaming store. This is a loving and handsome collection. If you had any affinity for these games growing up, I guarantee that they'll still make you smile.
