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: 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: 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!
Summary: Deadmund, nee Edmund before he was turned into a skeleton, is a precocious boy with a thirst for milk and violence, though not necessarily in that order. When confronted by a bone-white gang of the living dead, he dispatches them with dynamite or skewers them pointy weapons, growing stronger from every being he vanquishes.
Medieval Moves Review | You've Got To Move It, Move It

Conclusion: The Short Version: A basic narrative and some cutesy presentation can't disguise the fact that Medieval Moves is little more than a Move tech demo. The developers have mastered the Move, that much is evident, but fourteen months on there should be more to say than that and, although fun initially, the level of repetition and paucity of gameplay features results in a game that won't hold anyone's interest for long, even those of a younger age.
Pros: Shurikens are an excellent touch, Solid Move mechanics, Good in small doses
Cons: Not enough here to sustain long term interest, Hugely repetitive, Needs two Move wands ideally

Excerpt: Remember the part of the PlayStation Move tech demo that actually looked kind of interesting? Where the skeletons were fought off with a sword, shield, bow and arrow? Looks like somebody at Sony was rather impressed too; it seems that the idea was made a touch more family friendly, and eventually grew into Medieval Moves.
Summary: Kinect erfreut sich wachsender Beliebtheit. Die Spieleflut, eine große Werbekampagne und der Einsatz als alternatives Eingabegerät für Multimedia-Inhalte haben den Sensor für Zocker aller Alters- und Güteklassen zu einem interessanten Stück Hardware gemacht. Aber halt mal! Gab es da nicht noch ein Konkurrenzprodukt aus dem Hause Sony? Seit der Veröffentlichung ist es verdächtig ruhig um Move geworden und es erscheinen nur wenige ambitionierte Games.
Pros: Gelungene Steuerung, 3D-Modus, Für wenig Geld zu haben
Cons: Oberflächlich, Endlose Wiederholungen, Held wird oft "ferngesteuert"
