PlayStation Universe (Oct 23, 2019)
MediEvil finally makes the transition from PS1 to PS4 in a spectacular new remake that fans have been clamoring for. The Tim Burton-esque beauty and clever gameplay has held up incredibly well for a twenty-year-old game but some precarious camera angles and clumsy combat keep the game from perfection.
Spazio Games (Oct 23, 2019)
Un remake sia fedele che con “qualcosa in più”, meno lugubre dell’originale ma in cui la potenza immaginifica del dare concretezza a un mondo immaginario travalica qualunque limitazione. Ancora una volta sia la sua natura intrinseca di rifacimento (oltretutto di un solo titolo) che le già citate ristrettezze economiche gli impediscono di elevarsi oggettivamente a miglior remake della generazione. Per certi versi è anche seriamente dubbio che riuscirà ad attirare nuova utenza, essendo rimasto “rigido” su tante cose nonostante i piccoli aggiustamenti. Ma basta guardare oltre le cifre per capire come Other Ocean abbia voluto interiorizzare e diffondere quello che forse è il più grande messaggio di Sir Dan: la motivazione a riscattarsi (specialmente dopo una vita spregevole) a volte basta di per sé a vincere, ed è proprio lì che nascono gli eroi. Perché alla fine, siamo tutti Sir Daniel Fortesque.

Mit dem Remake des Action-Adventures von 1998 bleibt Other Ocean Interactive erfreulich nah am Original und behält nicht nur das Spielgefühl, sondern auch das Flair des Klassikers bei. Das ist gleichzeitig Fluch und Segen: Fans werden die Nähe zum Vorbild begrüßen, doch als Neueinsteiger dürfte man Komfortfunktionen wie Speicherpunkte oder das nicht vorhandene Treffer-Feedback vermissen. Trotz leichter Schwankungen bei der Bildrate und vereinzelter Kameraprobleme beeindruckt daher weniger die angestaubte Spielmechanik, sondern vor allem die technische Modernisierung - sei es der farbkräftige Anstrich der stilvollen Fantasy-Welt mit ihrem Tim-Burton-Touch oder der neu aufgenommene Soundtrack mit Anleihen bei Danny Elfman, der jetzt von einem echten Orchester und Chor dargeboten wird. Damit fügt sich die Neuauflage von MediEvil ordentlich in die Riege der Modernisierungen anderer Klassiker aus der ersten PlayStation-Ära der Neunziger ein.
Game Informer Magazine (Oct 24, 2019)
It may look like a fairly modern release, but it plays like a troubled game from the '90s.
Video Chums (Oct 23, 2019)
With so many retro remakes that feel like fresh experiences in this day and age, it's disappointing how dated MediEvil is. With that being said, it's definitely faithful so if you're a diehard fan then I'm sure you'll appreciate its swanky new visuals.
Way Too Many Games (Nov 24, 2019)
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. If you’re a fan of the series, or if you’re desperately craving a game that looks like a Tim Burton animated movie, then grab MediEvil. But just wait for a discount. A budget game deserves to be bought at a budget price.
