Okay, so both Aladdin and The Lion King - in 1990s platfomer, err, form - are stone cold classics. Wonderful animation that leveraged some of the best of Disney. Memorable characters and great music, with solid gameplay. So, with that you'd think this would be a no brainier for fans.

Except that this collection misses out on being the definite combo it could have easily been.
Which brings us to this package’s biggest omission as a historical compilation. 1994. The year that saw Disney’s Aladdin get ported over to the PC and Amiga, where it not only got improved visuals (the Mega Drive could only display 61-colours at a time) but, and this is a big one, a vastly improved MIDI soundtrack.

Here’s Prince Ali as heard on the Mega Drive. And here’s how it sounded on the PC.

Yeah, the difference is huge. And if, like me, you played both Aladdin and The Lion King on PC in ‘90s then this release not including these versions of the game make it feel incomplete. And a bit of a slog to get through. The GameBoy versions are here, so what gives? Also, without any remastering or touching up done on the visuals, not including the best looking and best sounding versions of these games is baffling.
