THE GOOD: Stays true to the original in many ways, updated graphics look superb, updated sound engineering and music exceed the charm of the original game, control scheme kept nearly completely intact.
THE BAD: Frame rate drops to 45-50fps when in open-air areas, and they added that lame genie from the lesser played PSX sequel to sound off on your missions and goals.
SUMMARY: Medieval: Resurrection does an excellent job of staying true to the original PS1 game. The game uses some elements from the second, lesser played PS1 sequel, such as the annoying watchdog of a genie, which becomes Daniel Fortesque's narrator and campaign guide. Everything else works so well, but the genie cracks up the original <and much better, compared to its sequel* game's formula with his overly comical and cartoony line delivery. It's not necessary, but it's still a survivable flaw.
That aside, whoever said the game controls "...don't translate well to the psp" is a dolt (gamespot). The PSP has a limited control...
