GOG release: “Disney Classic Games Collection”

Digital Eclipse and Nighthawk Interactive bring back some retro gaming memories with Disney Classic Games Collection on GOG.

Disney Classic Games Collection includes the three action-platformers Aladdin, The Jungle Book, and The Lion King, all of which I already reviewed (see the individual links for the articles). So the question is if it’s worth to buy them again. It seems that it depends on how much one loves these often tough games, as now all 16-bit console versions are included, which might already be reason enough to dip in again.

A considerable plus by many players is that one can instantly rewind the games in order to retry particularly difficult passages (of which there are many). There’s even the option to watch the games play themselves or skip parts and start playing anywhere one wants to. Of course this goes against the idea of beating all the challenges, but it certainly helps to make fans of the classic movies experience these titles in a more accessible way.

In addition, the graphics have been enhanced, one can choose various filters and aspect ratios, and there are plenty of interviews and galleries to go through as well as all the music to listen to in a separate player. So yes, it’s probably a pretty good collection with the new content.

Disney Classic Games Collection was originally released in November 2021 and is now available DRM-free on GOG with 33% off its price if one already owns Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King or The Jungle Book. These can’t be purchased separately anymore, and while it’s a questionable decision to sell these older games for quite a lot of money, the collection certainly offers the best experience to play the console versions on PC.
