Summary: The first time i look at this game I found the graphics incredible and interesting gameplay. When I started I realize that the game didnt give you any training and send you to a BIG CHALLENGE without you be prepared, facing a series of boss battles, which no tips. Ok, the game has manual, the NPC can tell you one thing or another, but what will really teachs you how to play, is watching any youtube guideline, so you can get an idea of how to fight.
Summary: An interesting idea, but not fun to play. "Malicious" is an incredibly short downloadable game in which you fight six boss battles, 5 of which you can fight in any order. That's it, that's really all you do. It's got some interesting hooks like gorgeous anime style graphics that reminded me of 2008's Prince of Persia reboot, and a structure similar to Mega Man in which beating each boss grants you new abilities.
Summary: The only real bad thing you can say about malicious is that it is short. The best way to describe this game is that it is a mixture of megaman, asura's wrath, and koei's warrior games. You have to defeat 5 tough bosses and they are surrounded by thousands of their minions. After defeating each boss you gain their abilities. There is a final 6 boss after you beat the other 5 and then the game is over, but well worth it.
Summary: Malicious is a game that, to put it simply, fails to deliver a fun, entertaining experience. Noticeable flaws permeate the entire game, such as a really, really bad and wonky camera, repetitive gameplay, dated graphics and subpar sound effects. It seems the designers were going for a really interesting and original concept by bringing back some characteristics from old school platformers such as Megaman, but the game falls short and it's really disappointing.
Summary: Well, it's not a terrible game but isn't great either. As a boss arena type game with only a handful of bosses, you're not getting much content. Some of the bosses just take a lot of time to kill because of a very high amount of health. They aren't particularly difficult, but it's mediocre fun to learn how to defeat a boss the first time. It's not anywhere near as good as Shadow of the Colossus but I can see how it was probably lightly inspired by it.
Summary: Although this game has its shortcomings, I consider it a good buy for the price. Malicious is what I would call a hidden diamond in the rough, as it is a fairly good game which had the potential to be something greater, by an widely unknown developer and will probably not gain much attention. If I had to compare it to other games, I would say it is like Mega Man, Dynasty Warriors and Shadow of the Colossus combined.
Summary: Malicious is a game where there is a cliche story yet great graphics and gameplay, Not many people know of this game, the only problem's in the game are the cliche story and camera. The camera may get frustrating at times, the camera is what really holds the game back, sound wise is great, a really good soundtrack. For only $9.99 id say its worth getting, it also has a high difficulty level so you might get mad. The battle can also take time up to 30 minutes.
Summary: Malicious is one of those rare games that seem to appear with little fanfare or publicity. And in this case the game turns out too be surprisingly good. It is an arena based boss battles game of which i cannot offhand think of another title like this although the boss fights are as challenging as those in dark souls and its predecessor demon souls.
