A title no gamer should ever miss: Maximo

Gamer Limit writes: "I was spending the day out of town when I came across a gamestop that I have never been in before. Being a frugal shopper, I decided to take a gander into their bargain bin. Hovering over the countless array of Madden and Grand Theft Auto titles I carefully perused the selection until my eyes picked apart every spine and price tag. As I was getting up to leave I noticed a familiar name and lettering on one of the cases. Pulling the game out I realized my eyes were not fooling me, and I was holding a copy of Maximo: Ghosts to Glory for a mere $2.99." (Maximo: Ghosts to Glory, PS2)

It's a fun game...
Can be a bit hard, but this one and the sequel were two great games...

true that
it's a great game but it's hard! I didn't finish both. this game is like ghost & goblins in 3D! everybody knows how hard that game is in 2D!

This was a fantastic, and under rated game.

Sounds like a bargain... I must play this! Hope I find one for a similar price!

hmm i hated it when I played it.... but each to their own I guess!

Yeah, I remember this.
I never played this one, but the sequel (Army of Zin) was awesome. I'll try this one when I'm bored.

I'm really starting to wish they would release old PS2 games on PSP, that would be another good use of the system.

I have this game and it is tough.
but a great challenge for any true "hardcore" gamer. Only gripe is sometime the camera was sloppy costing you a life but its still good.

This game is thrilling when you're winning and frustrating when you're losing. Still, in the end, I'd say it's pretty fun.

i prefer the original Ghosts n Goblins, or Ghosts n Ghouls

I still have Maximo Ghosts to Glory for PS2, and played the heck out of the game, but don't have the sequel (Army of Zin) yet.... I remember playing a demo of the sequel, but never picked it up.

This is one franchise that I'd love to see take a jump to PS3/360.

Game was incredibly hard. So challenging its not even worth it.

Never played this one - I may have to give it a look.

Maximo and it's Army of Zin sequel are 2 of the best 3D hack n slash
platformers available anywhere, would really like to see Capcom continue the series, but it probably won't happen.

Don't understand the allure of this one...
... I played them both and was greatly disappointed. I guess it was all the hype surrounding it, like it was the 2nd coming or something. A bad game? No. A great game? No. If you've never played it before, don't go out of your way. It's a love it or hate it game. Buy it used. That way you have 7 days to figure out that it's not that good and get your money back. Chances are you'll figure it out in 2 though.
