Review: MediEvil PS4 fails to modernise a cult favourite

It may look better than the original MediEvil, but the improvements stop there. This could have been the beginning of a new breath of life for a cult favourite, but instead it’s probably the final nail in the series’ coffin.

  • A decent enough visual upgrade...
  • ... to a game that has aged terribly
  • Combat feels archaic compared to modern action adventures
  • The camera feels inspired by The Blair Witch Project
2 / 5
