    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.

    This game is a classic. I can't remember the last time I've had this much fun. It's nice to have game that that executes platforming well. Easily a must buy.

    A decent modern day adaptation of ghouls & Ghosts. Yet it just does not live to its heritage. However, I did like the humor and all the obvious nods to the original game. Overall: A decent game, but nothing to spectacular.

  1. 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.
  2. It’s all about action and reaction, which is almost becoming a dying breed as games move toward stealth, tactics, and exploration.
  3. Featuring similar hack and slash gameplay, which has an uncanny knack of being addictive due to its frustrating nature, Maximo is a title that may appeal more to old-school gamers.
