In Ultimate Ghosts 'n Goblins, Arthur's heroic battle with the underworld was finally over and the entrance to the realm was sealed. So he thought. Time passes and unknowing to mankind, the dark lord has awaken from his slumber and kidnaps the princess in an effort to conquer the human world. Arthur must set off for the evil forest, the gateway to the underworld, to save the princess from imminent doom and keep the devil as well as his minions at bay. The excitement and intensity of the forerunner continues as our armored hero takes on this new challenge for the sake of humanity.
With the use of a 3D graphics engine, the Ultimate Ghosts 'n Goblins world comes alive as effects, cutscenes, backgrounds and animations are given more depth and richer detail. Retaining the classic design of the series, several new facets have been created including a broader range of motion and control techniques. Now our hero has the capability to dash, double-jump, shoot up or down in a vertical fashion, grab onto ledges, etc. A new leveling system allows gamers to build up Arthur's skills for more powerful magic abilities and attacks. With the addition of extra lives, death doesn't mean starting from a check point but rematerializing where they left off. Also new to the series is the inclusion of three difficulty modes that will suit every experience level: Novice, Standard and Ultimate. With the introduction of these all-new settings, a wide range of players can now fully enjoy Arthur's daring and unique world.
No longer just a linear experience, Ultimate Ghosts 'n Goblins has plenty of branching sub-missions that will encourage players to explore their surroundings for a more open-ended experience. Gamers can save their progress along the way and revisit cleared stages at anytime to expose unexplored paths, concealed items or weapons to help conquer the challenges that lie ahead.
  • New 3-D characters and environments enrich the side-scrollingadventure!
  • New weapons, magic and armor help Arthur overcome difficult challenges
  • Double-jump in mid-air, grab onto ledges and much more
  • New save feature allows gamers to revisit cleared stages at anytime
  • New level-up system for more powerful abilities and attacks
  • New difficulty settings that provide their own unique challenges for every gamer
  • Extra lives mean starting where players left off and not at check points
  • Expansive environments - Five main stages, each with multiple sub-missions, hidden paths and bosses to conquer

 Ultimate Ghosts 'N Goblins - Arthur keeps on going

I am a great Fan of the Series, and this PSP version has been Well put together. If your into platform games then this is for you at a good price. Plenty of weapons to chose from and great armour power ups.

 Ultimate Ghosts and Goblins is so,so rubbish!

The gameplay is made unfairly difficult and extremely annoying for two reasons.You have no control over your characters distance when he jumps.Unlike sonic and mario where you have an influence on the distance and direction of the jump,a press of the X button sends Arthur into a jump with predetermined height and length.This makes the game frustrating if you want to do a small leap to avoid an enemy or trap(which you will want to do quite often)where instead Arthur does a large leap usually landing on a differant enemy or trap and loosing a life.This poor design of character movement is made even more annoying when you find that many of the longer traps to jump over have the ledge you are jumping to off the screen. It means that you have to press the X button and hope for the best.You have to rely on luck rather than skillfully manipulating your character.I wouldnt reccommend this game to anyone unless they enjoyed being very, very stressed!

 A fantastic 'old school' platformer

Don't listen to the below review. This game is all about skill. It's the latest incarnation of a very tough but extremely addictive arcade series that started back in the mid-80's and it's a superb game for the PSP. Great graphics, challenging levels and several difficulty settings (the lowest one cuts out some of the more tricky areas for those very clumsy players). Feels very rewarding when you master a level and is yet another great game from Capcom.

 As Difficult as the Original

If you have played the original you understand the difficulty of this game. Be prepared because this version is no simpler, it just throws in a few extra features along the way.
Purchase only if you have the determination needed for this game!
