MediEvil Review Summary

FairCritic Consensus

Nostalgic

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.

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.

Critic Reviews for MediEvil

MediEvil successfully brings Daniel Fortesque's tale back from the dead yet again, but not nearly enough was done to modernize the mechanics of this remake.

Daniel Fortesque's tale is retold with style, but the fundamentals frustrate.

A remake that is loyal to a fault when it comes to honouring the original, with gameplay and design mechanics that were barely acceptable 21 years ago, let alone now.

This remake of MediEvil isn't all that fun to play in 2019, but it's still too much of a Halloween treat to dislike.

The story and writing are still clever, but Dan's adventure hasn't aged well, and ends up being a chore

This nostalgic puzzle-platforming action game, newly transported into the modern day, looks great but feels old.

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.
