Top Critic Average
MediEvil follows a recent string of 90s remakes. To date, they've been pretty successful, but MediEvil doesn't quite stack up to the likes of Crash and Spyro. For the most diehard PS1 fans, there's maybe something here, but for everyone else, you're best left with just the fond memories.
For some players, it's a blast from the past.
Some Broken Bones
Bugs turn up all over the place in this retro remake.
Better Left in the 90s
The gameplay suite just doesn't hold up anymore.

Critic Reviews for MediEvil
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.
