Hey guys, first post here. I'm from a channel called Video Games: A Blog where we do weekly quickplays of classic games. Our newest video was on MediEvil, and as I didn't have much of an experience with it as a kid I know it has a die hard fanbase. Here's our video if you'd like to check it out!

I watched it and thought it might be fun, and it always is fun to see a new player take on Medievil A few of the assumptions and comments were totally incorrect though:
"There's too much reading at the beginning" Well if you listened to the introduction instead of talking over it, you would have heard the narrator speaking the words to you. The books were the tutorial which you can skip if you wish to, which also meant you didn't know most of the controls like the camera switching or the power up attack with the basic sword.
"I wish this was more of a hack and slash game (then later) more enemies on screen etc." That's because you played about 5% or less of the full game (and within that 5% you only saw about 70% or so of those early few levels) and never saw the Hall of Heroes and it's system for new weapons. This IS a hack and slash game for the most parts and the early levels do not have a lot of enemies on screen. The ultimate show of both would be a level called 'The Asylum', there are also puzzle type levels and secrets to find throughout so it's never a pure hack and slash though.
I really suggest going back to it and playing more of the levels and collecting chalices, the weapon selection is excellent and even a somewhat 'secret' level to play. Also I know you probably have a presenting style that works for you, but it meant you didn't really hear any of the music or seem to be concentrating on the game to be able to really enjoy it fully. Think of it like judging Final Fantasy 7 solely based on the first bombing mission (whilst missing most of it on the way), just because you didn't totally trash the game, it also sadly means you didn't really have a chance to properly enjoy it either for the reasons long term fans have enjoyed it.
If that seems like kind of harsh criticism then apologies, but as you said we are a rather odd diehard bunch p.s. minus points to any video ever that uses the words 'dank' (in a non-traditional sense) or 'meme', sorry.
