In Ultimate Ghosts n Goblins, Arthur's heroic battle with the underworld was finally over and the entrance to the realm was sealed. So he thought. Time passes and unknowing to mankind, the dark lord has awaken from his slumber and kidnaps the princess in an effort to conquer the human world. Arthur must set off for the evil forest, the gateway to the underworld, to save the princess from imminent doom and keep the devil as well as his minions at bay. The excitement and intensity of the forerunner continues as our armored hero takes on this new challenge for the sake of humanity.With the use of a 3D graphics engine, the Ultimate Ghosts n Goblins world comes alive as effects, cutscenes, backgrounds and animations are given more depth and richer detail. Retaining the classic design of the series, several new facets have been created including a broader range of motion and new control techniques. Now our hero has the capability to dash, double-jump, shoot up or down in a vertical fashion, grab onto ledges, etc. With a new leveling system, allows gamers to build up Arthur's skills for more powerful magic abilities and attacks. With the addition of extra lives, death doesn't mean starting from a check point but rematerializing where they left off.No longer just a linear experience, Ultimate Ghosts n Goblins has plenty of branching sub-missions that will encourage players to explore their surroundings for a more open-ended experience. Gamers can save their progress along the way and revisit cleared stages at anytime to expose unexplored paths, concealed items or weapons to help conquer the challenges that lie ahead.

Old-school 2D that only enhances Capcom's name.
This game is perfect for: hardcore gamers
Knight Arthur is back again in another 2D platformer, this time in a new adventure that has the same old-school feeling as its predecessors, Ghosts N' Goblins and Ghouls N' Ghosts and Super Ghouls N' Ghosts. The difficulty of the old games are back, but this time with a little relief. The games' standard mode is very much easier than the other games, letting you restart where you died and having armor take more than one hit. Ultimate mode (or Original Mode as I like to call it) is for only the hardcore since it takes after the old games, making restart from a pre-determined point when you die and losing armor with one hit no matter what kind you are wearing. The graphics are 2D-3D and the sound has that classic Capcom feel. I highly reccommend this game to all hardcore gamers who enjoy the Ghouls N' Ghosts series and to new gamers looking for a REAL challenge.
