  1. Ghosts to Glory is one of the most addicting, angering, exciting, and unforgiving-as-all-get-out (when jumping onto moving targets) games that I have ever played! There is never a dull moment.
  2. A true masterpiece...it holds you in its grasp from start to finish, and then you'll probably want to play it all over again. [Mar 2002, p.59]
  3. The reason why Maximo excels at what it does is because it simply aims to do one thing well – be a great action platformer.

    A magnificent game. It's a wonderful treat that will have you shouting at the TV in anger, cursing puny pigs wielding giant hammers of destruction, and jumping with excitement at having beaten a boss or a mere single level.
  5. It’s not only a sterling initial effort, but also one of the best overall examples of the genre we’ve ever played. [Feb 2002, p.32]
  6. Feels nearly perfect. Aside from the lazy camera, really, it’s as good as it gets.
  7. Its frustrating gameplay could have easily become tiring, but they’ve got the balance just right to ensure you carry on playing, knowing that you can get that little bit further with a little bit of practise.
  8. One of the most difficult games that I have ever played. I honestly hadn't screamed a game so much since "Donkey Kong Country." And I loved every minute of it.
  9. The entire gameplay package evokes nostalgia, yet has enough advancements embedded in its coding to give it the high-end kick in the butt it needs to compete with today’s greatest releases. [Mar 2002, p.76]
  10. 90
    This is exceptional fun, tests the mettle of even the most hardened platform junkie, remains completely true to its roots, and delivers spectacularly in the graphics, combat, design, music, and most importantly, gameplay departments.
  11. It has everything a classic game should - good, inoffensive graphics, sturdy controls, and replayability - and it leaves a satisfying cramp in your fingers when you're done.
  12. 90
    The challenging action platformer fans have been waiting for, but it's not too tough for newcomers. Excellent. [March 2002, p.94]
  13. Controlling Max is a cinch, with responsive movement and a well thought out button configuration.

    This hack and slash was so fun back in the day, and its high amount of difficulty and strategy required make you want to approach this game with caution. Full Review »
