  1. Not only has the famous slow-down been neatly trimmed back from the SNES, the GBA game features an arranged mode which boasts level selection and all-new levels, some based on the original and arcade games. [Aug 2002, p.75]

    This may be quite a challenge but it will keep you constantly coming back for more due to the fun factor as well as the extended replay value that’s present even with only 8 levels to progress through due to the strategy needed to be successful, be prepared to die quite frequently.
  3. A faithful reproduction with some welcome enhancements and improvements. [Nov 2002, p.150]
  4. Unlike most ultra-hard games, however, Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts is thoroughly addictive, despite the fact that it does get frustrating.
  5. While the fundamentals are all great, my caveat emptor is: If you're not willing to fight for every inch in this game, do yourself a favor and concede defeat before you head to the checkout line with the game.
  6. Doesn’t stray from the original. Here is classic 16-bit action at its best, but it’s nothing new to scream about.
  7. 58
    Feels a bit stale. [Nov 2002, p.68]
