With the remake of 1998's MediEvil, Other Ocean has done great work bringing the PlayStation title in 2019. Visually, this game is a winner. The problem is the decision to keep the gameplay largely the same. MediEvil's combat is muddy and its level design lacks any sense of exploration. This needed to be a more extensive remake. As it stands, it's only for those with heavy nostalgia for the property.
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.
MediEvil is a nice change of pace from other serious Sony exclusives, but it felt like a budget title in which little effort had been put in its development. With a bad framerate, shallow combat, and an unforgivably bad camera, this is a game that brings back not only the good things about gaming from the PS1 era, but also all the shortcomings from that period.
