8.4 / 10Combined Score
I'm no fan of the horror genre, let alone when it becomes semi-goofy, and just plain scary. this game gives me a very lonely sense (sort of like Ico, but not as a bad) and at the same time I feel like I'm at a twisted haunted house, or some horrible evil circus of death...well, maybe it's just me...The fighting isn't terribly hard if you're good at these RPG/Hack 'n Slash games, but for the casual gamer it might get hard in the boss fights. the story, IMO was too weird, and random, sort of like Beetlejuice too.
Bottom line, it's just too creepy, and not as much fun as you'd hope. Despite some good parts to it, the genre, and attitude simply doesn't do it for me. Maybe if you like...
Control of Dan is sometimes a bit 'sticky' causing near-death experiences!
I never get bored of this game as I find it very enjoyable to play. The levels can be manageable then suddenly very tricky (Enchanted Forest & Asylum Grounds). The background graphics are detailed enough to give atmosphere, as is the sound. It's good how there are lots of things to find before you can progress anywhere as it extends gameplay time - it isn't all over in the blink of an eye like some games can be!
Sir Daniel Fortesque is the next great hero of playstation. I say they make at least 2-3 more MediEvil games to really enhance and set the story in stone. I am a die-hard MediEvil fan. I play it ritualistically even though I beat at least 10 times, never get tired of it.
