With so many retro remakes that feel like fresh experiences in this day and age, it's disappointing how dated MediEvil is. With that being said, it's definitely faithful so if you're a diehard fan then I'm sure you'll appreciate its swanky new visuals.
MediEvil is a resurrected game from the past millennium, and like Sir Daniel, some of the legends steeped in nostalgia may have depicted MediEvil as something greater than it is. It shows its age in some spots but for the most part it’s enjoyable. People with fond memories of it would probably enjoy this update over the original if for no other reason than the visual facelift. Its style has as much to do with its legacy as the gameplay but this is one of the more memorable titles to grace the original PlayStation.
MediEvil simply isn’t that good. I don’t blame Other Ocean for staying true to a game they clearly love, but MediEvil’s gameplay simply doesn’t hold up. It’s not a bad game, even today, but it isn’t a good one, either. I hope that someone takes a crack at remaking or remastering MediEvil 2 because this is a charming series that, like Sir Dan himself, deserves a second chance. But if they’re only going to resurrect this franchise to slap a new coat of paint on it, Sir Dan was probably better off dead.
