Summary

Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX is the same game we all played as a kid, with a new coat of paint and it works for the most part. Though the game might prove to be too difficult for today’s gamers.

Pros

  • Retro mode is an awesome nostalgia trip
  • A great challenge for any gamer

Cons

  • The only thing remastered is the graphics
  • The rest of the games in the series should have been added
Overall
4.5
