A Gothic Tale Straight from the Grave, Challange the Powers of Darkness and untold Magic....
One hundred years ago, in the land of Gallowmere, an evil wizard was defeated by the honest citizens of the land. You are a knight that died in the first unsuccessful charge against the wizard's army, but the king, in need of a way to inspire his embattled people, gave you both a hero's burial and the credit for victory. Now the wizard has returned from the dead with a mind for vengeance, and you've been brought back from the dead to stop him. Perhaps the world's least worthy hero, you set out to save the land once again--for the first time.
The animation and humor are reminiscent of Tim Burton'sThe Nightmare Before Christmas. If this alone isn't enough to thrill you, the difficulty level will. This is one of the few games that seems to keep itself near the perfect level--difficult enough to keep you interested, easy enough to keep you from getting frustrated.
The perspective perfectly complements the gameplay and animation style: the 3-D follow-cam allows you, in most places, to look around with ease. And you'll want to take time to see the sights, since the game looks as good as it plays. This game isn't just for the hard-core gamer. It's for everyone. --John Cocking

The game is divided into different stages. Most people say the game has some elements related to Tim Burton's "The Nightmare Before Xmas" movie. It has a dark atmosphere, but in a way, it is also kind of quirky. Sir Fortesque character is portrayed as a hesitant hero but eager to stop his old nemesis. Most all the other heroes doubt he has what it takes to save Gallowmere and make him out to be kind of a coward at heart. Fortesque pushes on none the less.
The game is authentic. For a game from 1998, it holds up in today's standards. The character development for Sir Fortesque and Zarok are dead on (no pun intended). There is a more recent game called "Midievil Resurrection" for the PSP, but it's a lot more quirky and has a few of the levels missing from it's original. Plus, they make Sir Fortesque seem like he is a complete coward and has to have a conscience, like Jiminy Cricket from Pinnochio, to get him to face the challenges before him. If you have the fortune of having a PS1, Midievil is worth while to have in your collection. One can play a PS1 game for the PS2, but you can't save off on a PS2. If you have the good fortune, nevertheless, of having a PS1 or 2, then play this game.
MediEvil is a hack and slash game involving the undead, but unlike popular games that involves zombies in some way like Resident Evil this one is less....realistic. The game has a cartoon feel and the back of the box even says that, I usually love cartoons and this one fits the bill in terms of both comedy and graphics. The story is that there is this story teller for a king who kind of went off the deep end by saying he slain an evil wizard named Zarok. Zarok, who overhears this, decideds to declare war and horrified by this and believing in Fortesques (the story teller) story he sends him out to battle but Daniel goes down at the first shot with a welhelm scream and everything. 100 years later Zarok returns but so does Fortesque but this time the cowardly knight is a skeletal one.
MediEvil's controls are a little awkward but once you get the hang of them it becomes quite nice, the atmosphere of this game is dark and gritty but not too much. As I said before the gameplay is a hack and slash type thing like God of War but less gory... much, much, much, much, MUCH less gory than that game and it does throw around puzzles. The game does beg for you to get every single chalice (collectables) by throwing in a lot of challenges that can make it easier to complete if you have a certain weapon such as enemies having an insane amount of health and would take literally forever to kill with your second to strongest sword. Because of this getting a 100% on this game is really easy and there is no bad ending for doing a No Chalice run if you so wish to do so.
The music is outstanding and some of it is memorable, one of my favorite tracks is the ending theme of this one, the music is compose of a synthesizer and other normal instruments.
So how would I rate this game, well I think this game is perfect and is and always on the number one spot of my top ten list of favorite games of all time. For that this game gets a 10/10 stars from me, music, gameplay, and graphics are always great and the controls are a bit awkward as I said but once you get used to it then this game is a blast. ALL HAIL SIR DANIEL FORTESQUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Not many people know about this game for some reason but now that you know. It's worth the time and money to play this classic 3rd person hack and slash classic game.
