    Medieval Moves: Deadmund's Quest is one of the smash hits of the holiday season, not just for Move but for family gaming in general. If you haven't added a PS Move to your PS3 then this might be the game to push you over the edge. Whether you buy the game as part of the hardware bundle or just pick-up the title by itself, you definitely want to add this game to your collection. I haven't had this much fun with my PS Move in a long time.
  2. This is the kind of game that you play for only short periods of time. Partly because of the repetitive nature of the gameplay, but also because of the physical pain it can cause you. Play this for a few hours on end and you will definitely suffer the morning after. [December 2011, p.84]

    The final compliment we can pay to the game is this: if George Lucas needs any tips on how to make a PlayStation Move Star Wars game…he need look no further than Medieval Moves for an ideal template.

    I'm surprised by how much I enjoyed Medieval Moves: Deadmund's Quest.

    With a lot of gameplay mechanics taken from Sports Champions, which give a good feeling of playing a hero perfectly mimicking or own moves, this PS Move only game works perfectly well. The playability and accessibility, both excellent, allow the player to quickly dive in this quest, even though it's a little repetitive (the genre tends to be). Visually nice, and funny, Prince Edmund's quest is a good PS Move game.

    Don't let yourself be distracted by the looks of Medieval Moves: Despite its cute and simple charm, the game is a worthy successor and progress from Sports Champions' gladiator and archery mode.

    All in all Medieval Moves is not the most original game but as an on-rails shooter type game for kid, it hits the spot.

    Medieval Moves: Deadmund's Quest is a surprisingly good title, especially for those who don't mind a little on-rails action in their games. The combat is good, though limited because of some missing moves and the general uselessness of the throwing stars. Multiplayer, while not exactly deep, is fun enough, and the addition of online helps give the game some legs.

    Really enjoyed a motion-controlled game that finally worked 1-to-1 the way it's supposed to. It's even more fun with 2 Moves as well.

    Sadly underrated by a lot of self-declared "hardcore" critics who appear unable or unwilling to appreciate casual motion games for what theySadly underrated by a lot of self-declared "hardcore" critics who appear unable or unwilling to appreciate casual motion games for what they are. The motion controls in this game are sharp, almost lag free and intuitive; the on-the-fly weapon selection works great. The overall gameplay indeed is repetitive and won't hold your interest for several hours of continuous play - but it's fresh and challenging enough to keep you coming back for smaller, yet positively addictive stints of fun (which is exactly what any casual game should do). The story - though obviously nothing to write home about - provides a charming and reasonably interesting backdrop that can't be blamed to be any more simplistic or bland than any of those threadbare Mario games that a lot of critics seem to love so much. Multiplayer is where Medieval Moves really shines, though. The option to play locally as well as online in head-to-head as well as co-op multiplayer matches renders it a very interesting take on the usual party game formula. Bottom line: Medieval Moves is certainly not a full-priced, AAA gaming experience - but ultimately, that's not what it actually strives to be. In spirit, it basically is to the Move what Angry Birds is to the touch screen: A very simplistic and almost naively casual, yet very intuitive and surprisingly fun use of the interface. Judged for what it is, it's the almost perfect casual Move game - and arguably one of the best uses of that interface yet. Full Review »
