Medieval Moves: Deadmund's Quest
2 September 2013
Summary: Let's get this out of the way immediately. Despite being a Sony-published PS3 exclusive, despite starring a skeleton with a sword, and despite the game's name, Medieval Moves: Deadmund's Quest has absolutely zero relation to the PlayStation classic MediEvil . Hopefully, that has set your expectations low, because expecting too much from Deadmund's Quest is fairly easy, especially given how promising it looks.
Excerpt: Medieval Moves Deadmund's Quest comes to us from the same team that brought us Sports Champions. This Playstation 3 (PS3) Move title has sword fighting, archery, and throwing stars. The first two work better than can be expected. The throwing stars take some practice to figure out. Medieval Moves Deadmund's Quest is on rails.
Excerpt: When making a game for kids, the prevailing wisdom is to keep it simple, stupid. But sometimes developers make their kiddie games so simple that they end up being stupid. Such is the case with Medieval Moves: Deadmund’s Quest, an arcadey, goofy, and cartoony third-person hack & slash fantasy game from the people who made Sports Champions.
Pros: Feels like a sword being swung, The co-op survival mode, Milk: It does a body good
Cons: Its lack of depth, Its redundant combat, That it’ll even bore Junior
Excerpt: Do you remember Sports Champions ? The PlayStation Move launch title let you play a number of different sports by using one, or ideally two, Move controllers - one for each hand. Duelling, archery and disc golf were among the best sports on offer, and it's these that have formed the base of gameplay in Medieval Moves. You play Edmund, a young boy who must recover a stolen amulet from the evil Morgrimm - a kind of Skeletor lookalike.
Summary: Parents need to know that Medieval Moves: Deadmund’s Quest is an action game that requires a PlayStation Move motion controller. Players slash with the move to swing a sword, flick their wrists to toss throwing stars, and point at targets to shoot them with arrows. The violence is mild -- players fight cartoonish skeletons that disappear in a puff of purple energy when defeated -- but frequent.
Excerpt: While a lot of motion control games tend to be mini-game collections, Medieval Moves: Deadmund’s Quest bucks the trend and promises a story driven, action packed adventure. You control Deadmund, a prince who was turned into a cursed skeleton, on a quest to reclaim his kingdom’s great treasure. If he can defeat the evil Morgrimm and return the kingdom’s magical treasure, then he and his kingdom will saved from the curse.
Excerpt: Medieval Moves: Deadmund’s Quest is the latest game from Zindagi Games, the studio who brought us Sports Champions, a launch title for the PlayStation Move. Deadmund’s Quest is a fun game that utilises the capabilities of the Move controller excellently, and will also make you work up a good sweat in the process!
Conclusion: The final compliment we can pay to the game is this: if George Lucas needs any tips on how to make a PlayStation Move Star Wars game…he need look no further than Medieval Moves for an ideal template.
Conclusion: Sony had all the marbles here. Zindagi Games knows the hardware, and yet the game they made falters in both longevity and marketing to make the real draw, online, something nobody will ever get to experience. For shame.
