Ultimate Ghosts ‘n’ Goblins PSP Review

Console Obsession
30 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Ghosts ‘n Goblin and Ghouls ‘n Ghosts are both remembered for not only being classic games, but also for demanding a lot from those who were brave enough to step into the boxer shorts and shiny armour of Arthur, the games pint-sized and bearded knight. They were difficult games without a doubt, but were compelling enough to keep the interest of many players around the globe.

  • Excerpt: Japanese-developed 8- and 16-bit games were paramount to the advancement of gaming. Without them there’s almost no chance we’d be where we are today. Among the scores of franchises born of that golden era, only a handful have been able to stand the test of time and mass consumerism, and of those, only a chosen few still strike a chord with fans so deep that each new game is a veritable event.

  • Excerpt: Ultimate Ghosts 'n Goblins is a flashback to the classic side-scroller games of yore. Oh the levels may look colorful, detailed, and 3D, but once you start playing you’ll see that this game is definitely from video gaming’s Middle Ages. We’re talking jumping, shooting, side-scrolling, rescue the princess gameplay here.

  • Excerpt: Poor little guy. My PSP is only just over a month old and until now his most strenuous exercise came when I momentarily lost my cool during a Syphon Filter shoot out. Sorry though buddy, I'm not done yet. I can't fight the final demon until I've collected all the gold rings and, until that day comes, the eternal torment of Ultimate Ghosts 'N Goblins continues.

Playstation Illustrated
24 April 2007
  • Excerpt: Toying with the gods of arcade hits past is a dangerous business. When in the past the hits of old were revamped and released again, they tended to fall into two categories. Both categories usually involved some major improvements in keeping with the newest technology. Developers just couldn't help themselves. The exceptions tend to come from side-scrolling shooters that just needed to be released with a buff and a shine on the visuals.

  • Summary: Ultimate Ghosts 'n Goblins is an excellent update of the classic that appeared in the arcades and on consoles during the 80's. It keeps everything that was good about the original and spruces up the look with great graphics and gives the music an upgrade. The game is extremely challenging and not for gamers the like their hand to be held throughout a game so if your an old-school gamer, a fan of the original or looking for a challenging and sometimes frustratingly-hard...

  • Summary: All of these changes make for a more robust experience that expands the original formula without losing the essence of its appeal. The same can be said for the game's visuals, which retain much of the original charm while adding new elements. The 2D backdrops have been enhanced with more detail and quasi 3D effects, though still retain the hand-drawn look that was the essence of the series appeal.
