From the Manufacturer

A brand new chapter in the classic Ghosts ‘N Goblins series, re-created from the ground up! Play as Sir Arthur, the valiant knight in shining armor, to save the princess from the clutches of evil. Princess Prin Prin has been kidnapped by the Devil himself and taken to the underworld. The excitement, challenge, and intensity of the original all combine in a new design specifically for the PSP.

Ultimate Ghosts ‘n Goblins is an exclusive PSP edition of Capcom's legendary platforming game, directed by the original's creator Tokurou Fujiwara. The game makes use of a 3-D graphics engine, giving depth to the visuals, but plays in a side-scrolling perspective and similar art design to stay true to the original. Your goal is to work your way through side-scrolling stages, defeating enemies and using your best platforming skills. The game lets you build up your skills as you progress. You start off with just a basic jump, but eventually gain a double jump and even the ability to fly. You'll also earn lots of magic spells along the way. The game promises a greater number of spells and weapons than ever before. New for Goku Makaimura is non-linear gameplay. You're no longer on a fixed path from start to end. The levels include branching points and even warp points. By using a warp point, you can warp back to previous levels and collect items that you might have missed.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
no matter who you are or how good you are at video games, this is just straight hard. not hard as in, wow, i finally beat that level, but hard as in, wow it only took me 30 seconds to die 5 times... continue? of course ! the shear number of times i have died playing this game must be in the near thousands, as each level only takes a few minutes to finish, and there are only 6 levels. how ridiculously easy it is to die is what make people freak out over this game. miscalculate a jump and you die, touch anything and you die (or loose armor and then die next time, just a matter of time, really) get knocked off a platform and you die. finding all the rings is a quest, some are hidden so well you will just be shocked that the game's creators had the nerve to make you look there (uhm, storm castle under the bottom of the screen for 30 seconds) and as for the "secret" where you can get unlimited lives and the knights soul if you get 2,000,000 or 30,000,000 points, hahaha! how about just trying to get 500,000 points !!! it is tough !!

now as to why it is sooo great... this game unfolds as you play and just makes you want to play more and more and more just to see what happens next (even though i admit the plot is thin) it is more a matter of what you find and what you get to upgrade art to the point that he has at least a chance to put up a good fight.

i have cracked out on this title for weeks and still need about 3 more of the 33 rings, which i admit i may never find as i have gone through every level at least 20 times and can imagine where to look that i have not looked.

the music rocks, will include in my halloween mix CD for sure.

best game i have ever played, maybe not, but i love it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Jump Arthur, Jump. September 4, 2006
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
In the 1980s, when human minds are less sophisticated, many video game concepts were centred on the theme of "rescuing the princess, saving the world". Ultimate Ghosts `n Goblins utilizes the same concept, and it's hardly surprisingly - it's a modern take on the original Ghost `n Goblins from 1986. In this 21st century rendition of this classic game, Knight Arthur returns (with his armor and, ahem, underwear) to save Princess Prin from the undead, again. To make the adventure more up-to-date, however, Capcom have added several new features to it. These include the introduction of 3D graphics, and new in-game tools and techniques that allow Arthur to defeat the enemies that stand in his way.

Apart from his usual repertoire of skills, Arthur has a number of new moves up his sleeves. One of them is the ability to dash, executed when you double tap left or right quickly. This is helpful when you need to clear an area fast, but it usually ends up badly due to the large number of enemies that appear on screen. Arthur also has the aptitude to grab, which makes platforming a little easier, since he can now hang on the edge of a platform without falling to his death after a missed jump. Shields are also introduced into the gameplay, which allow Arthur to repel attacks by simply pressing the down button on the D-Pad.

Despite the new abilities, however, Ultimate Ghosts `n Goblins remains insanely challenging even when played on the easiest of its three difficulty levels. To put it simply, the game is hard. Enemies will attack you in quick succession. They will also re-spawn regularly, leaving you with hardly any room to breathe. Even the platforming is tricky, and it regularly requires you to take a leap of faith, which tends to result in a fall to death.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just like the old days - only updated December 19, 2006
By Drewboy
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is like an update of the gold old days. Ghosts 'N Goblins was one of the first Nintendo games I had ever played, and Ghouls 'N Ghosts was the first Genesis game I purchased, for around $70. I played those games to death and still play them on occasion. I was very happy to hear that they were updating it in 2D for the PSP. I like the 3D PS2 series, but I don't enjoy them as much. I will just say this - despite the increased appearance of "upgrades" to your character, this game is still hard as all heck. There are more enemies than before and they attack more viciously. I've only played the game for an hour so far, but I can already say its a worthy update to the series in 2D. If you're a fan, this purchase is a no-brainer!

5.0 out of 5 stars Old-school fun updated fantastically January 3, 2007
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is one of my favorite games to come along for a long time on any recent system. The fact that it was made specifically for the PSP is a huge bonus to anyone who owns one. The original creator of the series returned to produce/direct this sequel and you can tell. If you ever enjoyed playing a ghosts n goblins or ghouls n ghosts game, you will simply crap your pants at how much better this game is. It plays like the old games, but there are more magic, more weapons, more challenge, etc. Also, the game continually gets more difficult every time you warp backwards to a previous stage, so you will be playing this for a long time. Frickin fantastic. Pure Genius. I love ultimate ghosts n goblins. PEACE.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Game! August 10, 2007
By Gudder
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Outstanding graphics and animation! Outstanding sound! Difficulty is spot on. Its definitely pushing the PSP. Its an absolute gem in the PSP library. If you consider yourself a gamer this is a must have. If your into old games the SNES version "Super Ghouls and Ghosts" is a blast as well but much more difficult then this version. Hey Capcom how about a PS3 version of this game?
