4.0 out of 5 stars Return of the Laughing Dead, 10 May 2001
This review is from: Medievil 2 - Platinum (PS) (Video Game)
How refreshing, a game that doesn't take itself seriously and yet still manages to deliver hardcore platform, hack'n'slash action. Playing a dead character is a real treat and there are plenty of suprises that the game throws up at you. One minute you're hacking at hideous monsters in the London underground, the next you're boxing a giant robot. You can be launched back and forth in time, fighting historical figures such as the Whitechapel murderer Jack the Ripper, or viscous vampires. And even after all that, nothing will quite prepare you for the final boss. There's a large variety of weapons from the earth-shaking Hammer of Thor to the screen clearing Gatling gun. Often though, it's up close and personal as the order of the day since money for replacement ammo is sparse. No matter how many times you play this game, you always come back for just one more go. There is however one fatal flaw. The game has one of the most infuriating cameras ever. when surrounded by a horde of undead all baying for your blood... er sorry, bones, the last thing that you need to be doing is fiddling around with your camera. Whilst this could have been a cheap rehash of the original, just plonking Dan in a new background, it does so much more, expanding on the original, and creating wonderfully detailed, in-depth, intricate, huge but most importantly in this game, amusing situations in Victorian London. Utter Class, buy it forthwith if not sooner!!!
