    Mixed impressions of the released Ghosts 'n Goblins


    Gamespot has released a video of the next level of Ghosts 'n Goblins, and I can't help but think this game looks incredible. The game's already out in Japan, so various sites have been able to review or preview the game for us. There's the glowing preview, from IGN:

    "Regardless of how much I suck at games in general, and how cheap it sometimes feels, I'm loving every moment of Ultimate Ghosts 'n Goblins. No matter how many times I die or have to restart the level, I can't stop going back for more!"
    And then there's the less optimistic, from 1UP:
    "It is a terrible, terrible game, and the fact that some people have convinced themselves it is a work of art speaks volumes about how powerful the forces of nostalgia and franchising can be. It is not the game everyone was hoping for, except that small demographic that savors physical and psychological trauma. In fact, it is the worst thing to be inflicted upon the Ghosts 'N' Goblins legend since the atrocious Game Boy Color port of the NES port of the original arcade game. It is not good in every sense of the phrase."
    So, who's right? Those of you out there that have the import, please inform us! The rest of us will have to wait until the US version hits September 5th. Until then, download the latest video of the game in motion for your PSP here:
