Ghosts' n Goblins Resurrection is the reimagining of the classics Ghosts' n Goblins and Ghouls' n Ghosts. It comes to us after 15 years without enjoying the adventures of Sir Arthur and it does so in the best possible way, with a classic adventure of devilish difficulty that includes enough news to satisfy both connoisseurs of the original titles and users that they approach him for the first time. So it is a pleasure that Capcom recovers its classic sagas.

A way to revive the Capcom classic but with new and improved graphics. Difficult to rage but very fun and with the possibility of two simultaneous players.

Arthur, the ghosts, and goblins are all back in a tough but satisfying adventure. Ghosts 'n Goblins Resurrection is an updated take that keeps the good and the bad without losing its identity.

While “Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection” doesn’t quite live up to the series’ peaks, it offers enough of a brutal, satisfying challenge to honor the “Ghosts ‘n Goblins” name.

Ghosts 'n Goblins Resurrection has a brutal difficulty curve but offers a wealth of options to tweak the difficulty of the game. For newcomers, the easy difficulty gives them a chance to be better at the game, while for veterans, they still have plenty of challenges to overcome.

There’s no mistaking it: Ghosts ‘N Goblins: Resurrection is challenging like many of the games in the Ghosts ‘N Goblins franchise. But the reasons for this level of difficulty become apparent when you consider the history of this franchise: like all classic arcade games it was a total grind, created to chew up tall piles of quarters. The creators have delivered on their promise of reimagining this game and have remained true to that aspect of it, so I can certainly appreciate and respect this game on those merits. I also don’t stress the difficulty level of this game to deter anyone from purchasing it, as the whole point could be to challenge yourself as a scroller-platform gamer! Despite my grumbling I must have a hidden masochistic side to me, as I thoroughly enjoyed every clammy-palmed minute of gameplay, in spite of the high degree of difficulty.

In the end, Ghosts' n Goblins Resurrection faithfully reproduces its original experience, with excellent graphics, diverse mechanics, familiar enemies and a lot of nostalgia. This could be the starting point for the franchise's definitive resurrection, or just a last breath of life. Even trying to make the title more accessible to new players, the difficulty is still high. Novice players may struggle to adapt to the challenges, while the nostalgic ones will find the same challenging experience as 36 years ago.

Even if Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection features some abhorrent gameplay issues, something about it still makes it an entertaining game. You will die over and over again, but you won’t rage quit as quickly as you would imagine with a game riddled with so many inconveniences.
