One hundred years have passed since the evil Sorcerer Zarok was defeated at the Battle of Gallowmere, heroically cut down by a mortally wounded Sir Daniel Fortesque. Or at least, that's what the people were told; in fact poor Sir Dan was a bit of a coward, falling in the very first wave of arrows. Now Zarok has returned, turning day into night, and raising an undead army to conquer the land. As a side effect Dan has also been resurrected... now, he has the chance to defeat Zarok and in death become the hero he never was in life.
After a successful couple of outings on the PSone, its been a bit of mystery as to whats happened to Sir Daniel Fortesque (deceased). In MediEvil: Resurrection, he returns from the grave yet again, for a welcome new PSP outing that breathes new life into his undead adventures.
The MediEvil games dont do anything especially original or taxing -- theyre simply very well designed action adventures with a nice line in comedy situations, particularly the craven coward that is Sir Dan himself. This PSP game is, however, completely new, with a much improved combat system and a lot more weapons to employ.
Naturally the graphics are greatly improved from the PSone games, and indeed this could be the best looking of all the PSP launch titles, with some beautifully subtle lighting and impressively complex levels and enemies. The gameplay itself is a bit shallow, but played in small doses as the portable format encourages youre unlikely to get tired of it before the end.
As an extra bonus, there are also eight wireless multiplayer mini-games, none of which are of any real consequence but perfectly entertaining with a few friends. Comedy rarely works in video games but the amusing ineptness of the "hero" marks a welcome return for one of gamings lost sons. -- Harrison Dent

I was not to be disappointed. From the opening cutscenes to the concluding credits this title, published by Sony's Cambridge development house, is laugh out loud material. The voice acting, led by Tom Baker from Doctor Who and Little Britain fame, is superb - the best I've heard since a Lucas Art's point and click adventure. The graphics are sharp and detailed and really bring the characters to life and the controls are tight. However, this game's most outstanding feature is its soundtrack. Fitting in somewhere between the score from Tim Burton's Batman films and his Nightmare before Christmas classic, the music in this game really draws you (and anybody else who is remotely close to you) into the game.
You play the role of Sir Daniel Fortesque, a solider who was killed defending the realm of Gallowmere in a heroic battle a century ago. After the battle Fortesque was heralded a hero, although as you're frequently reminded, this was not quite the case. Brought back to life by the Evil Sorcerer Zarok, who has also resurrected his evil Undead army, it falls to the feet of cowardly Fortesque to stop Zarok at any cost and earn the accolade "Hero of Gallowmere".
As Fortesque you will explore the large realm of Gallowmere (with a total of 18 different levels), including a Ghost Ship, some Haunted Ruins, an Enchanted Forest and an Asylum.Read more ›
If you have ever played the original versions of Medievil 1 and 2 for the Playstation 1 you will remember just how enjoyable this game is, nothing has changed with the new version for the PSP its jam packed full of the things that made the original such a hit.
Step by Step review
Gameplay- Perhaps the most important factor in a game is Gameplay, Medievil resurrection certainly doesn't disappoint. The range of gameplay in this game is very broad ranging from your odd skirmish with a few dead zombies or a run it with a mighty boss. In the game there are eight mini games playable via your PSP's Ad Hoc wireless mode but the game provides over 70 more mini-games that are solo play only, they are all fun to play and great on multiplayer. Medievil resurrection is a lengthy game consisting of 19 single player levels each one is unique and has its own twist. The game is a perfect Blend of comedy, action, puzzles and most importantly it's incredibly fun to play. Not many games can achieve such a perfect Balance but Medievil resurrection pulls it off.
Score 5.0 out of 5.0
Graphics- Naturally the fact that the game is on the PSP means that the graphics are going to be superior to that of the original Playstation 1. Although I have seen better on the PSP this game ranks within the top 5 PSP games for graphics.Read more ›
This is great fun to play and easily the best PSP platforming game out yet.
You play as Sir Daniel Forteque, a cowardly soldier raised from the dead by a wizard so he could fight once more.
The moment I saw this game being played by a friend I thought the graphics where much better than the PSone graphics yet the PSP has seen better.
There is much to do; Explore levels while slashing monsters with your sword, and other weapons that you collect later in the game.
There are also many entertaining mini-games, and Wifi multiplayer action which is the greatest improvement on the PSone version.
The main story mode is pretty difficult and will take alot of time aswell as luck and skill. The only real bad thing about this game is the camera, but after a while you slowly get used to this.
All in all this game isn't an essential, but still a very great game that is worth buying for both gameplay and comedy.
