Ultimate Ghosts 'n Goblins

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: I think I'm getting too old for some games. I recently tried Ultimate Ghosts & Goblins for the PSP, and I'll tell you right now: despite the game's great graphics, fun weapons and and addictive 2D gameplay in a 3D environment, I hardly enjoyed the game at all. It's just too difficult, and I am betting that many gamers out there will agree with me if they actually get a chance to play this one. But let's back up for a bit.
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Ultimate Ghosts 'n Goblins is a game that will split the gaming public. The hardcore and/or older players will sing the praises and reminisce about a time when all games were this brutal. Those new to the experience, however, are likely to be put off by frustrating difficulty and a lack of real incentive to replay the game. Much as I hate to include such a cliché here, but: this is certainly one for fans of the series.
