  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.

    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]
  3. 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.
  4. Ultimately, if you approach this with an open mind, you'll discover a well-designed and deeply engaging piece of software.
  5. Maintains a retro feel with plenty of humorous touches as well.
  6. Players who have just jumped on the video game bandwagon with the PlayStation may become frustrated with Maximo's detail-oriented gameplay and repetitive nature.
  7. Not everyone’s cup of vino, but a true toga party for fans of the franchise.

    솔직히 요즘 이상해
    하루의 모든 시간에
    널 떠올리고 있어
    웃음 짓고 있어 왜 이래
    어떻게 생각해
    혼자보다 난 둘이 좋아
    두 눈을 마주 볼 때면
    커져만 가는 내 마음이
    널 향한 마음이
    째깍 멈출 수 없는 걸
    있잖아 내가 널 지금
    좋아한다고 나 지금
    말해버리면 넌 어떡할래
    자꾸만 궁금해지는

    찬바람이 불면
    또 발그레진 내 볼을 너의 손에 담고
    아무렇지 않게 넌 보고 싶다는 말도
    매일 날 참 헷갈리게 하는 걸
    언제까지 우린 (Oh)
    친구로 지낼 수 있을까
    날 부르는 네 목소리가
    나 꿈에서만 들려왔던
    너무 달콤했던
    바로 그 목소리였어
    있잖아 내가 널 지금
    좋아한다고 나 지금

    Wow! Talk about an addicting game. Where do I start? This is oldschool gameplay mixed with next gen graphics in a beautiful 3d world! This is Wow! Talk about an addicting game. Where do I start? This is oldschool gameplay mixed with next gen graphics in a beautiful 3d world! This is just the type of game the gameworld needed after the rampage of last fall into Christmas. The gameplay is great! It is oldschool vamped into 3d. You have your double jump, your sword can do several different things (including shooting at people if you get the right powerup), and you can even throw your shield! The story-line isn't anything earthshattering (ala FFX or MGS2), but it keeps you interested enough to care and laughing aloud at times. There are other quite humorous things in the game, too, like how maximo's boxer shorts keep changing as you move on in the game, or how he is turned into a crying baby at times. The guys at Capcom have scored big...it would be ashame if you passed this one up, but I have a feeling many will. Expand
