Donald Duck Quack Attack ist ein unterhaltsames Jump&Run, das zwar schon nach wenigen Abenden durchgespielt ist, aber aufgrund der abwechslungsreich gestaltetes Level gefällt.
I didn’t know Naughty Dog was working on a Donald Duck game! This ode to Crash Bandicoot is identical to the orange goof’s PlayStation adventures. Thus, it’s not bad.
Having reviewed the PlayStation version last issue, I didn't think a second round of Goin' Quackers would take up too much of my time. Turns out I was wrong. The levels are the same as its PS-X brethren, but look much nicer and play much smoother on N64. Even some of the problems I had with the PS-X version have been taken care of here. Donald has more animations and shouts more incomprehensible things during play. With these improvements stacked onto the (eventually) challenging levels, Goin' Quackers turns out to be a fun game. The kind of fun game you should pay full price for if you're over ten years old? Not quite, but maybe you can con your little brother into buying it. For the first time ever, I won't mind playing a game for a third time on another system (in this case, PlayStation 2) in the near future.

Donald Duck: Goin' Quackers is undoubtedly a Crash Bandicoot clone but that doesn't stop it from being a great game. If it had more content it could easily have been among the best titles on the N64 but as it stands it's a solid, yet short-lived, platformer that can be enjoyed by all ages.

So bleibt Donald ein Spiel, der Hardcore Jumper nicht lange herausfordert. Allerdings ist Donald nicht nur aufgrund seines Helden ein typisches Spiel das auch Eltern mit ihren Kindern spielen können. Denn durch die schnellen Erfolge und der sehr angenehmen Spielbarkeit kommt hier kein Frust auf. Gepaart mit einer guten Steuerung steht einem Familienspiel Nachmittag nichts im Wege. Anspruchsvolle Jump'n Run Freunde warten lieber auf das umwerfende Banjo Tooie.

Schade drum - nach den genialen Disney-Titeln auf dem Mega Drive (Quackshot, Mickey) und der recht guten GameBoy-Fassung hatte ich mich schon richtig auf diesen Test gefreut. Doch gegen so starke Konkurrenten wie Rayman oder Rocket kann sich der Enterich nicht im Geringsten durchsetzen. Für den nächsten Disney-Jumper erwarte ich deutlich mehr Abwechslung oder - und das wäre ein wahr gewordener Traum - endlich wieder traumhafte, handgezeichnete und liebevoll animierte 2D-Grafik im Stile des ersten Rayman oder eines Aladdin (MD).

I'm a huge, huge, fan of 2D side-scrolling games ever since the glory days of the great NES classics. Even today I still spend half of my gaming hours on such old-school titles because back then, gameplay was all they had. Sadly, the principle of clever gameplay fundamentals doesn't come home with Donald Duck: Goin' Quackers on the N64. Instead we find a charming yet overly simple attempt to return to these classic gaming roots, and this isn't going to be enough to keep seasoned players glued to their controllers. At the very best, this game will keep younger players and newcomers smiling for a few days as they lazily breeze through the game. Even if you're a hardcore Disney and 2D action fan, you might consider renting this one and finishing it off quickly before going in for the purchase. If all else fails, just run out and hunt down some classic SNES Disney titles by Capcom to see how a true 2D side-scroller should really be done.

Children will enjoy the lively adventures of Donald Duck, and some of those who enjoyed the DuckTales animated series will want to check out Goin' Quackers. Those who want a deeper, more satisfying platform adventure should probably save this for a weekend rental.
There are moments when GQ wants to break out and shake its tail feathers but the severe easiness does not allow it to stand on its own webbed feet. At the narrow end of the pond, GQ provides a pleasant but short platforming experience for any age group. Be sure to have the SNES and Genesis on standby.
