Ghosts 'n Goblins Resurrection stands out as perhaps one of the most accessible games in the series yet. The various difficulty levels, accompanying adjustments, and the unlimited lives for all difficulty levels give series newcomers a sense of hope that they can see the game to its conclusion. At the same time, the title remains tough and uncompromising in enemy count and gameplay, giving longtime fans some comfort that the series hasn't lost its appeal. It is a solid game, and the only players who should stay away are those who hate facing an elevated level of difficulty from the get-go.

In the end, Capcom has made a faithful resurrection for Ghosts 'n Goblins, keeping true to the original game in so many areas that it causes it to also suffer from the same issues I have with the older games.

Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection is probably the most approachable Capcom's hardcore platformer franchise will ever get at this point. Yeah, it’s still rough around the edges by sheer design, but if you can stomach its trial and error nature there’s a gem to be had and conquered, or better put, slayed with this one.

With several improvements and options to make it more accessible — less difficult should be more suitable — or more challenging, Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection is the best version of a videogame classic. With a presentation that brings excellent art and music, in addition to elements that greatly enhance the gameplay, the high difficulty still makes the game be targeted to a more specific niche. Still recommended, but to be enjoyed in moderation.

Ghosts 'n Goblins Resurrection is more than a revamping of the Arcade title and presents a work of high technical quality, reimagining the proposal that was known for having an extreme challenge. The choice of the level of difficulty is the main highlight of the game as it provides challenges that range from the arduous to the impossible, making players experience different sensations at each new obstacle.

It is a kind of reboot where we will live the story of the original arcade. The challenge is present, being able to choose between different difficulties.

Ghosts 'n Goblins Resurrection is exactly what you'd expect a remake of Capcom's classic: It's painfully difficult to the point of parody, but it also features gorgeous visuals and imaginatively punishing design to create a beautiful knightmare.

‎Capcom lives up to the game's title in an installment that may well turn out to be a Resurrection for the saga. A constant nod to the players of yesteryear both in gameplay and in various other elements, for example the music, the scenarios and some enemies. It remains to be seen whether the new generations welcome Sir Arthur with open arms and this arcade game experience does not limit the audience of the production a little, for now, I felt at home.‎
