North America Retail Box ArtA modern version of Capcom's Ghosts 'n' Goblins series, Maximo: Ghosts to Glory is one of those rare games that offers a solid update of a classic arcade title. This 3-D platform game delivers all the charm of its 2-D side-scrolling ancestor with current gameplay mechanics. In his latest adventure, Maximo returns to his kingdom to find it in disarray; his formerly trusted advisor, Achille, has banished the four sorceresses that govern the land and forced Maximo's true love to marry him. To save the day Maximo must run, jump, and fight his way through five environments spanning more than 25 levels. Like his predecessors, Maximo must constantly worry about upgrading his armour and weapons. Play the game skilfully and you'll have a heavily armed fighting machine. Take too many hits and Maximo will be fighting villains in his heart-covered boxers. Graphics-wise the game is very strong. The animations are smooth, the textures are rich, and the environments are detailed. Sound is an absolute joy. The effects are humorous, while the music is fantastic: the developer has done an excellent job of taking the melodies from the original game and creating updated variations that are equally memorable. Although some will find the gameplay repetitive and many will find the boss fights too easy, Maximo: Ghosts to Glory is an excellent 15 to 20 hours of platform goodness. --Raymond M Padilla
