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.
An interesting action game with good storyline and gameplay, but a steep learning curve.

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.
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.
Summary: I must admit I was already a fan of this franchise from the earlier Ghosts N' Goblins games, so I went into my purchase with high hopes for a nice update. Maximo: Ghosts to Glory is a much needed improvement to an already good game series. There was quite a lot of room for "less than" in developing this game, so I give Capcom a hand for pulling it off.
Summary: Very entertaining game. Graphics and sound are above average, and the gameplay is excellent. Challenging enough for experienced gamers, but not too detailed or complicated. Some will complaing about the "save game" method, but I didn't find that it bothered me much. Wish there were more games like it out there. For the price, this game is well worth it. Highly recommended.
Summary: You may not know it, but Maximo is a sort of sequel to Ghosts and Goblins and Super Ghouls and Ghosts. Obviously, gaming has changed much since the days of those titles, so the game has been updated significantly, and yet somehow it still feels like its predecessors, which is an accomplishment worthy of notation.
Summary: This is a solid 3D platformer, with crisp visuals, fluid gameplay and well designed levels. I'm not a real platform fan but I enjoyed the game, until the 3rd (ice) section when it became too difficult for me hence very frustrating. Hardcore platform fans will probably delight at the sinking platforms, ever tougher bad guys and sheer drops, but I got annoyed. Good game though, well worth a look.
Summary: "Maximo" is similar in style to the popular Crash Bandicoot and MediEvil games, in their style of platform action. As an older gamer, I found this to be a lot like the older games, such as Ghouls 'n' ghosts and Castlevania in it's overall feel. Obviously, the graphics and music have evolved since then. Here is the breakdown: The Pros: 1. Classic gameplay. This game is a lot like MediEvil, in that it feels like a halloween adventure.
