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.

  • Summary: Sir Arthur is back, and controlling him is about as easy as steering a cruise ship through a China shop - but what else is new?

  • 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...

  • Excerpt: That being said, the game is actually a lot of fun. Well, fun if you’re tired of mundane games that you can just run through in one sitting.

  • Conclusion: In many ways this is probably the best game that the series has produced. Fans will be pleased beyond reason, despite the fact that Arthur still can't jump to save his life. Newcomers may be taken aback by the unabashed challenge and unrelenting sense that you suck every time you die. Because of that I foresee this title as being very polarizing on the market.

  • Conclusion: They did it. Capcom sucessfully updated the series without destroying what was good about the classics. I'll always bemoan the loss of the Maximo team, as they actually translated things into full 3D perfectly, but this is a nice in-between.

5 September 2006
  • Excerpt: The Ghosts and Goblins franchise has been upgraded and translated across multiple platforms from its NES release in 1986 to its loosely-based appearance in Maximo for the Playstation 2. As Capcom continues to revitalize its classics, it seems fitting for the Knight Arthur’s never-ending quest to continue on the Playstation Portable. While the side-scrolling monster marathon has never looked better, it still feels like deliberate platforming torture.

Portable Review

  • Excerpt: Capcom seems to be doing a lot of reminiscing of its glory days lately. From the re-releases of such games as Street Fighter Alpha 3 MAX and Darkstalkers Chronicle: The Chaos Tower, to the remakes of such games as Megaman: Powered Up and Megaman X: Maverick Hunter X, and even the various compilations of Capcom’s arcade classics. Now Capcom is digging into its rich long history to pull out another remake: Ultimate Ghosts ‘n Goblins.

Ultimate Ghosts ’N Goblins

Empire Online
5 June 2007
  • Summary: With their endless continues, gentle learning curves and free-roaming environments that allow you to tiptoe around trouble, veteran players will argue that modern games are much too easy. But for a reminder of how tough coin-op adventures used to be, UGNG is an exasperating but compelling experience.
