Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX (PC) Review | VGChartz

VGChartz's Craig Snow: "Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX is an accomplished remake built around a core that's admittedly creaking with age. It’s difficult to brainstorm anything extra that I wish the development team had added, beyond perhaps more new levels, although at that point the line between remake and sequel would surely begin to blur. Some of the quality-of-life changes will probably prove contentious, but the kid in me from 30 years ago just wishes they’d been there from the start. And that’s probably as good a sign as any that the developers handled this remake well."

I get the feeling these reviewers don't really like playing older style games these days, hence the average ish scores. Same happened with the Asha Wonderboy game, some gave the game good scores and some gave around average.

IMO if you still like the original games you will probably like this too, though i guess that might go without saying anyway

I found it difficult to settle on a score tbh. It's hard, especially with a remake of such an old game, to find a balance between rating it as it stands against modern competition (not too well) vs. rating it purely for the work done updating the game (much better). You sort of end up with a score somewhere in the middle.

If you still enjoy the original then you should definitely enjoy this - they handled the remake well and I definitely got a nostalgia hit from it. But it doesn't have the replability of the original, at least not for me.
