IGN: I don't know what it is about games in this series in particular, but every time I play them I somehow feel much more willing to deal with the incredible frustration of their excessive difficulty. Maybe it's because that's what Ghosts 'N Goblins is -- challenge incarnate. Maybe it's a nostalgia thing. Maybe it's because there really is something clinically wrong with me, and I really am overdue for a visit with a licensed professional.
Whatever the case, my madness may not be entirely my own. If you share in it and in an appreciation for this franchise's unique ability to make you want to punch a hole in a wall, download quickly.
