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.
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: 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!
Sony's New Move Adventure Is An Epic Test Of Your Patience
18 November 2011
Conclusion: Concept: Create an adventure for PlayStation Move based on functionality from early tech demos
Graphics: The crisp, cartoony visuals work well, but the motion comic cutscenes are pathetic
Sound: The quality music and voice acting are among the most polished features
Playability: The motion controls outperform other Move titles, but that doesn't make the game fun
Entertainment: The most entertaining part of the game was when I accidentally hit Ben Reeves in the crotch...
Excerpt: Launched alongside PlayStation Move to showcase the tech, Sports Champions remains at the very least a must-have for owners of Sony’s motion controllers, but also make a pretty strong case for buying them in the first place. So it’s with some excitement that we sat down, or rather stood up, to review Medieval Moves . The premise of the game is to take the key elements of Sports Champions and put them into a story-based experience.
Medieval Moves Review | You've Got To Move It, Move It
2 March 2012
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.
