1.0 out of 5 stars This pretty much killed the franchise, 4 Dec 2012
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Medievil 2 (Video Game)
This one lacked the stunning visuals and environments of the original, the cool characters are all gone due to it being set in 19th century London instead (why call it MediEvil then?) instead we get some rather annoying characters with really bad stereotypical British accents, I swear every time I hear that ghost helper dudes voice I want to turn off the TV. The controls are not as fluent this is especially bad with fighting, it feels so stiff. The story is pretty average with a really lame ending.

It's not all bad however as some levels are quite good and what you would expect from a MediEvil sequel, if only the whole game was like that. The stand out levels include Whitechapel, Kensington, The Freak Show and Cathedral Spires. The music while not bad it doesn't have the awesome and atmospheric score that the first had. I don't like the map system for this one, the way it was before was fine so don't change it. I hate how you can't go back to previous levels to replenish your health because the life re-generators don't re-spawn when you replay a level only energy vials do WHY?!!!!

This would be fine if you start each level with full health but you don't which was a problem even in the 1st one but was easily solved by playing through an easy level and using health re-generators. Well i'm going on a bit so i'll just say the first MediEvil is a classic gothic horror game and everyone should play it, MediEvil 2 is a pretty good game but compared to the first it's pretty bad. Only for people who really liked the first I think.
