    MediEvil is a colorful trip down memory lane filled with gorgeous, updated graphics, the same amazing OST and improved (yet still retro) gameplay mechanics. This will make you feel like a kid again.

    There’s something really special about MediEvil getting a well-deserved remake beyond the visual and audio glow-up. It provides the title with a chance to break out of the confines of relative obscurity to reach a wider audience. MediEvil deserves all of this and more with its fantastic tone, entertaining characters and story, excellent level design, and stellar pacing, even if a few issues hold it back. If you haven’t played it before you’d be doing yourself a disservice by not giving it a go, and if you have played it before, rejoice in Fortesque’s skeletal embrace.

    For better or worse, MediEvil is a PS4 game that plays like a PSX game.

    MediEvil successfully recreates the feel and the atmosphere of the original game, leaving intact all the problems it had in terms of gameplay, hitboxes and camera.

    The MediEvil remake stays true to the original and was modernised quite well despite some minor deficits. In terms of gameplay it is a tad too old-fashioned.

    For those entering in here for the memories of a beloved game, I don’t want to knock the experience for you. This is the game you love! But unlike aforementioned remakes, nostalgia seems like a necessity to enjoy MediEvil rather than just being a bonus. Let all brave knights beware.

    A remake that is loyal to a fault when it comes to honouring the original, with gameplay and design mechanics that were barely acceptable 21 years ago, let alone now.

    I love the original story. The remake feels faithful. There are the charm of Medievil game back in 90's. Awesome game for old school gamers and fans.

    The game is astonishing! The graphic improvement is amazing, the gameplay is the one that you remember.
    The only problems I found are easily
    The game is astonishing! The graphic improvement is amazing, the gameplay is the one that you remember.
    The only problems I found are easily resolvable with patches: some camera issues, some bad collisione and please add a checkpoint before bosses.. It's sometimes frustrating ti restart all the level back only because you failed a boss..

Control y jugabilidad prehistóricas. No divierten nada. Dificultad absurda en algunos puntos. Bugs como quedarte atrapado en algunos huecos. Sólo una cosa. P**** espantapájaros.
    Podían haber mejorado mecánicas , controles y jugabilidad pero siguen anclados en los 80-90. Sin evolución. La consola casi vuela al morir en el combate final del nivel de las dos demonios y ver que tenía que repetir el nivel entero con unos maldivos demonios que casi te matan. Por dios que estos desarrolladores dejen los juegos o se pongan las pilas.
