MAXIMO PREVIEW!!

What's It About? The heroic, undead hero Maximo returns to battle an army of robotic soul-stealers. Grim (aka Death) needs the souls trapped in each robot to be freed, so it's up to you to send these poor, tortured folks to the great hereafter by using a whole new collection of weapons, magic, and moves.

,

Why's It Cool? Maximo is based on Capcom's old-school Ghosts 'n Goblins games, and you can definitely feel it. The action never lets up, and the all-new items and weapons you can use—not to mention the huge boss characters you fight—keep things fun and exciting throughout the game.

,

Should We Worry? The first Maximo is fun...but hard! While a new life-bar system (in which it takes more than one hit to knock off Maximo's armor) and the ability to transform into Grim for a brief period of time (in case you get surrounded) make the second game a bit more user-friendly, the version we played was still plenty challenging.

,

Bottom Line Balancing the difficulty is about the only thing we're worried about in Maximo's new adventure. The game controls great and looks gorgeous. A lot of folks really warmed up to the first game, despite its controller-smashin' difficulty, so we expect those same folks will find much to love in the new title.

Nope.
