I grabbed this when it was on sale over the holidays. The reduced price made it worth picking up. Even though I had heard some pretty negative things about the game, it seemed to be exactly the kind of game I tend to like. A true adventure with a fantastic world and a great quest.

It turns out the bad things I had heard were spot on. The acting in this game is so bad, I can only assume it was done by complete armatures. And unfortunately, the story of the Majin and the hero need to be told through this really bad acting. But the world and the main characters do have some charm and you just may find the world a fun place to spend some time.

The combat also suffers from its share of issues and tends to lend itself to button mashing. Animations can take to long and allow for what feels like very cheap hits. The camera can betray you and leave you wondering which way is up. And the Majin can end up getting in your way instead of helping out.

But, despite these flaws, the game is still fun to play for the most part. Its a classic fantasy adventure and is nothing new but they gameplay does have you and the Majin working together to solve light puzzles as well as combat. This is where the game stands out. It does a pretty good job of making you feel connected to the Majin and you want to work towards leveling up his abilities as much as your own. The level design did seem kind of odd at times and the progress of getting new powers suffers from some pacing issues. A few times I was wondering if I had missed something or if I needed to progress and backtrack. This can lead to a bit of frustration. At least there is the much needed map because without that, I probably would have quit.

Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom will have you jumping into the role of a thief who oddly enough can understand animals. He is on a mission to steal something that could save the kingdom. What he doesn't fully realize is that the thing that he finds is a monster to the gods named Majin. It is with Majin that the thief is able to fight back against the evil entities that have overrun the kingdom. You'll have to face mighty foes to set the world free, are you man enough to do it?

Graphically this game looks stunning, the different areas of the game all have their own take on things without making it feel too disjointed. I do appreciate the fact that when you are changing outfits that you truly see what you changed into instead of getting a generic advanced look. The character design was also something I appreciated.

The music in the game seemed like your regular action RPG music, it didn't stand out, but it didn't distract from the game. I will say that the voice of Majin repeating certain phrases over and over again did get to me after a while, but the fact that not only you but your lumbering giant had lines was a nice touch.

I didn't have too many issues with the controls that were provided for the game, I really wish that there was a blocking mechanism to the game, but the actual control scheme didn't seem to really hinder me in anyway.

This game had so much potential. I would have been happy to have a few enemies stand in my way from time to time to distract me from trying to solve the many puzzles in the game to help me advance through the game, but there was just way too many enemies constantly being there. The reason why this, in my mind, took away from the game is because the battle mechanisms weren't good.

My first impression of this game was quite simple. What a neat idea! But that was the last good impression I had for quite some time.

The play control in this game is really aweful. I mean, it's terrible. Plus, it's not very intuitive, so the learning curve is extremely high. I had put several hours in before I even started to feel like I was making steady progress. Plus, there are numerous parts in the game that require precise jumps, but it is extremely difficult when the controller won't let me jump at the precise moment I want to. Nor is it easy to land right where I want to. And that made several instances where I had to tediously run all the way around a massive arena just to attempt the same inane jump again and again.

The other aspect of the game that drove me nuts was having to wait for dark to collect memory shards. I don't even know if that's a crucial aspect of the game or not. In fact, the story is seriously lacking. So you have a world crumbling into darkness. That's about all they give you to start out with.

My final annoyance is that the monster dude doesn't like to use verbs.

The one good thing I have to say about the game is that there are many challenges (I don't like to call them puzzles) where, once they are accomplished, really feels like something was accomplished. But all we really get for a reward is to see a new part of the map.

A friend recommended I try this game because I enjoyed the Prince of Persia titles. I was definitely skeptical after seeing the cover. It looks like a kid's cartoon and there are elements to the game that are very cartoonish, like the talking animals and the big dumb Majin who is constantly falling and yelling "Ouch". If you can get past the silliness, there is a good game underneath it all. It is similar to the Prince of Persia games in that you have to go thru several different levels, find items that will increase your strength and at the end of each level, fight a big bad boss. Each level includes obstacles that require some problem solving and a few of them were pretty ingenious. The graphics are well done and involve some really beautifully done scenery. The violence is all in the form of sword fighting and there's no bloodshed shown (the bad guys are made of "the darkness" and resemble black tar and when the hero is injured, he begins to turn dark like them). It's not a difficult game to beat but it does take time to work through all the levels. In order to get the Majin to full strength, there is also some backtracking thru previous levels that has to be done which I didn't really enjoy or understand - it just seemed like a waste of time to me. I think this game would most appeal to younger gamers from ages 10-15. If, like me, you've usually played games rated Mature, there is still some value here if you give it a chance.
