Summary: This is ok but not great I played better but it's good.The character you play as moves like he is on ice which will get annoying.It is pretty hard I am on the last level it took me a while though.It is not that long you will beat it in a few days.There is not much of a story to it there is one you have to save maximo's girlfriend and you get sent to the under world where you meet the grim reaper.The controls are easy to learn.The sound is bad.The worst thing is how you...
Maximo is a great old school platformer for hardcore gamers!

Summary: Maximo is one of the hardest games for the PS2, in fact I found it harder then Devil May Cry 3 ( the original version ) to complete. Maximo has nice chunky 3D cartoon graphics and the sound goes well with the game. The Grim Reaper brings Maximo who is a Knight back to life to stop the evil Achille from raising the dead, taking away what is his. At the same time Maximo can safe his Kingdom and loved ones. The gamplay is very good but also very hard at the same time.
Excerpt: "Being a soldier sucks a fat one. You go to war, kick some ass for a few months, and then when it's over you traipse home battered and bruised, have a hot meal, see the missus then head out for more war. But imagine how Maximo must feel: he comes home from the war expecting to get his leg over, but finds that the evil King Achille has kidnapped his beloved bride-to-be. Add to the fact that the nasty old bloke has turned Maximo's homeland into a living ...
Pros: Great atmosphere, action and graphics, very rewarding
Cons: A little too difficult at times, not many stages
Excerpt: "I bought this in a bundle from Ebay - i had never heard of it but when i put it in my PS2 too make sure the disc was ok i got kinda addicted. I ended up playing this before the game i purchased the bundle for. The aim of the game is to rescue Maximo's girlfriend who has been kidnapped - to do this you have to fight your way through a number of levels, each of which have a big baddie at the end. Every level has four of five sub levels within it. ...
Excerpt: "The evil king Achille and his hordes of undead have conquered the realms, imprisoned the four sorceresses who defend it and is going to marry the Princess.The only thing standing in his way is the hero Maximo (co-incidently the Princess' boyfriend), so the game takes a decidely unusual turn when Maximo dies in the intro sequence. Fortunately for our hero, Death (understandably concerned with his employment prospects if people stop dying) makes Maximo ...
Solid 3D platforming with character, but a few flaws

Summary: The platforming genre is perhaps the one that had the hardest time making the transition to 3D with the advent of polygon-pushing hardware, the problem (of course) being the camera - falling to your death due to a bad camera angle feels unfair and results in irritation. Jak and Daxter got around this by removing "lives" altogether. Maximo, however, does not.
