Conclusion: As one might expect, Daniel’s core weapons are a sword and shield. However, as the game progresses, the knight is able to receive additional weapons and items from the spirits of the soldiers who fought along side him 100 years earlier. These weapons can range from a crossbow, to axes, and longbows. Also, from the start of the game one of Daniel’s arms can be used as a makeshift club if need be.
Summary: This game will bring you to a world similar to ‘A Nightmare Before Christmas’. If you enjoy dark and gloomy, yet mildly amusing while still entertaining titles, then you’ll never feel regret over picking this title up at retail prices.
Pros: Incredible voice acting amuses, Graphics are incredibly high quality compared to what’s currently available, Mini-games are brilliant little time-wasters
Cons: Clumsy accuracy occasionally frustrates, Awkward camera angles
Excerpt: Date: 10/5/2005 MediEvil was originally a PlayStation game and so the subtitle “Resurrection” is après pro now that is now making its comeback via the PSP. It’s a new system, with new graphics and some new gameplay, but it suffers from some very old problems, notably the camera control. This is a shame because the game has its own quirky sense of humor and some great visuals and should really be a better game overall.
Excerpt: Seven years ago, PlayStation owners were introduced to an unlikely hero: An undead knight fighting to defeat the armies of darkness and their leader, a nefarious wizard. Packing a sharp sword and an even sharper wit, MediEvil and its sequel appeared to be doomed to obscurity, having been severely overlooked by consumers back then. Fortunately, gamers are getting another chance to enter the skewed world of Sir Daniel Fortesque, thanks to the PSP.
Excerpt: MediEvil: Resurrection looks nice and maintains a flowing fantasy world. Much of the game’s looks mirror those found in a Tim Burton film, so expect all kinds of macabre visuals as you travel through the game’s 19 levels. All of the characters are interesting to look at and are richly detailed. It’s a shame that the camera has so many issues, otherwise the game might look even better than it does. Sound is MediEvil ’s strongest aspect.
Excerpt: In 1998, an underdog action game called MediEvil hit the PlayStation. Although it didn't make much of a splash, its likable undead hero and reasonably solid play led into a sequel and something resembling minor cult status among those keeping an eye on the fringe. Fast-forward seven years and exchange the PlayStation for the PSP. MediEvil Resurrection may have a few tweaks and go a little easier on the eyes, but it's essentially the same game. The main difference?
Excerpt: Gone but certainly not forgotten, are the MediEvil games on the first PlayStation console. Originally developed by the Cambridge branch of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, the games were notable for the imaginative world in which they were set. A peaceful land was beset by the attack of an undead army, raised by the evil Lord Zarok, a necromancer thought dead for centuries.
