5.0 out of 5 stars Great strategy / RPG combo with replayability August 20, 2005
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Makai Kingdom is brought to us by the same people who created Disgaea, La Pucelle, and Phantom Brave. You are cartoon style characters moving in grid combat on random boards.

The graphics are quite reasonable for this style of game. Makai Kingdom is about strategy and not about visual speed, so while the individual characters are cute, they are not overly detailed. This is OK if you're playing on a small screen TV, but once you move up to a larger screen and/or high definition TV, the characters begin to look a bit fuzzy and pixellated.

The sound falls into the same category. You get generic electronica-sounding background sounds, along with dialogue such as "Take This!" and effects like "BOoooom!" Since you tend to tune out all of those sounds while focussing on your strategy, it's fine.

Actual gameplay is very enjoyable. Each character has strengths and weaknesses, a variety of attributes to customize and weapons / armor to work with. Makai Kingdom can easily take you weeks, if not months, to finish, if you really put the time and effort into tweaking your characters to fit your playing style. The more effort you put into your characters, the more fun gameplay will be, and themore smoothly your battles will go.

Really, the game is a colorful, multi-dimensional, customizeable strategy game that really tests your planning and strategy skills. Given the number of characters and situations you have to keep track of at any point in time, it's an impressive way to keep your brain cells active and alert. For anyone who reads those studies that say "crossword puzzles help keep your mind alert", I suggest they give this game a try. Talk about a game sure to help your thinking processes become more acute!!

Highly recommended for any strategy / RPG fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another original RPG August 2, 2005
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Well, Nippon Ichi has done it again. For those people who loved Disgaea and/or Phantom Brave, here is another entry in twacked out RPG arena. As an aside, if you don't know about Disgaea or Phantom Brave, might I recommend those as well.

Back to Makai Kingdom. Lord Zetta, the demon Overlord Laharl would be proud to have grown up to be, arrogantly destroys his Netherworld, and it becomes your job, as his pawn, to help him recreate it. How, you ask? That's where the game gets interesting. You start off with one character, an unfortunate soul floating in the Netherworld cosmos, whom you confine into an object. This is remniscent of Phantom Brave. The system is pretty easy to pick up on, where each object has a set of stats that you use to determine which job a character created from it would best suit. Rocks have good defense and attack stats, so they make good warriors. Flowers have good magic and intelligence, so they make good wizards, and so on. Later on, you can sacrifice these created characters to call into existence buildings, which give different bonuses in battle. On top of this, there are also vehicles, which are essentially mechs, or mobile fortresses with weapons. Finding the proper mix of leveling your characters and sacrificing them for power is where the joy lays in this particular mechanic.

Of course, what game is complete without a large selection of skills, spells, weapons and items. Yes, the standard spells are there, but you can also use a ball and chain to spin the battle grid into the sun, as well as using flamethrowers, gatling guns, frying pans and pies as weapons. I have not completed this game yet, and I'll probably put a few hundred hours into this one just like I did Disgaea, but I felt the need to try to persuade other people to enjoy this game as well before I did. Purchase, and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Makai Kingdoms? Another Disgaea perhaps? August 23, 2005
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Makai Kingdoms is about an arrogant overlord of the netherworld that makes a horrible mistake dooming himself and his world to oblivion. This once great overlord must begin anew with a ragtag army and rely on the help of other overlords to regain his power, among other things. It is your task to lead this army and help him regain what he lost. That is the overall just of the storyline and plot. The story is pretty easy to follow and has an interesting twist or two in it with multiple endings. This game has both a serious side and a comical side to catch the interests of most players. If you don't have a sense of humor I'm not sure you will like the game though.

Makai Kingdoms is a strategy turn-based RPG game. Similar games include: Final Fantasy Tactics, Disgaea, La Pucelle, Phantom Brave, and the Vandal Hearts series. I suggest playing at least Disgaea, if not Phantom Brave as well, before playing this game because you will recognize some hidden characters later from these games if you do and better enjoy the humor in it.

As for game play, it works much like Disgaea, if you are familiar with it, with a little of Phantom Braves' confining added in for the formation of characters. Unlike Phantom Brave, you don't have to confine everyone to items for battle....THANK GOD! It works like Disgaea where you can summon them on screen within a certain distance of the base, or Zetta, in this case. It has added the use of mechanical vehicles and buildings to add a more interesting combat environment.

The graphics are similar to that of Disgaea....which gives it an anime type feel.

I am a fan of the entire franchise, or was I guess. I loved this game, still do. NIS doesn't seem to make them like this anymore.

5.0 out of 5 stars A NIS Classic
Makai Kingdom is a better Disgaea game than Disgaea. Full of references to Super Sentai and Mecha shows, this game is lovingly handcrafted for true otaku.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as its big brother.
Makai Kingdom is a semi-free roaming, as opposed to a FFT/Disgaea style grid, strategy RPG. It is probably the spiritual successor to Phantom Brave in nearly every way. Read more
