  1. Really easy to pick up and play. The controls are very easy and responsive. The mini puzzles that are presented to the gamers are easy enough to understand yet still provide a nice challenge.
  2. Offers a quality presentation of a sometimes-awkward game, but for the most part you can overcome the quirky camera and really get into the melee and ranged combat. And the collection of mini-games rivals a handheld version of "Mario Party."
  3. Play Magazine
    MediEvil is ultra-polished, filled with wonder and brilliant level design and set to a soundrack I'd put up against any cosole game on the market. [Sept 2005, p.61]
  4. A solid title whose best features include the humor, story, and amount of modes the game offers.
  5. Minor technical issues aside, this is one of the more polished games on the PSP in terms of presentation.
  6. Official U.S. Playstation Magazine
    A quirky, lighthearted third-person action-adventure that's a fun and engaging diversion - ideal for the PSP. [Oct 2005, p.109]
  7. It's a great looking game with top-shelf cutscenes, voiceacting and writing. The gameplay itself is just slightly above average but it's plenty challenging enough for gamers of all levels.

    Unfortunately, both the action/adventure sequences and the platforming/puzzle solving sequences are fairly basic and, therefore, rather easy.
  9. Game Informer
    MediEvil Resurrection is largely based on old hack n' slash design tropes (like collecting runes to open doors and rudimentary arena-based boss battles) that seems a bit dated in this day and age. [Oct 2005, p.154]
  10. While the flawed camera system and occasionally awkward attack mechanics can make the gameplay a little troublesome at times, on the whole MediEvil is a thoroughly fun title.
  11. The camera issues and combat problems complicate this version of Sir Dan’s adventures, making this one less than perfect, but more than adequate as a basic platformer.
