hate to tell you, but...
... this shit doesnt work.
it's a great rendition of the ghosts n goblins/ghouls n ghosts series, but honestly, the play control is REALLLLLLLLYYYYYYY BAAADDD.
this entry has all the great elements needed to make a long-lasting, entertaining game.
however, the random stopping for no reason, character not running when commanded to, and/or running for long lengths without being commanded to really affected gameplay a lot.
i found myself gliding through areas with fingers crossed that the controls wont drop me off a cliff right when i just did awesome moves to get through a hoard of enemies.
i really think this game deserves a 5/10, but for now it's got a 4/8.
gameplay tip: USE THE AXE. it's the best freakin' weapon.
