MediEvil, on the other hand, is last year’s remake of Sony’s fondly remembered 1998 comedy hack-and-slasher, in which now-skeletal knight Sir Daniel Fortesque attempts to prevent the plans of villainous sorcerer Zarok.

, which appears as excellent a place to start as any, follows the adversities of bandana-bedecked Deacon St. John, an outlaw-turned-drifter with a fondness for motorcycles on a quest to find his partner, two years after an international pandemic. What follows is a survival-hued open-world adventure throughout the beautifully rendered Oregon countryside, doggedly blighted by its abounding swells of cannibalistic monstrosities and, less pleasingly, a whiff of overfamiliarity.
