Makai Kingdom

The Armchair Empire

  • Conclusion: The free range movement system from Phantom Brave is back, and while it's certainly less suffocating than the tile-based movement used by so many other SRPGs, it still has its quirks.

Makai Kingdom

Playstation Illustrated
15 April 2006
  • Excerpt: As a big time fan of Nippon Ichi’s (NIS) Strategy RPG offerings, Makai Kingdom presents a conundrum. As a fan, Makai Kingdom offers the deep, time-consuming strategy gameplay NIS is known for – making it a sure fire winner.

  • Excerpt: Nippon Ichi Software has made a name for itself in the short amount of time its games have been in the United States. Many elevated Disgaea: Hour of Darkness to the same level as Final Fantasy Tactics, while some panned it for being too silly.

  • Summary: Nippon Ichi Software seems to have some bizarre fixation on the underworld, demons, and all the things that usually come after a not so righteous life. All of their titles have something to do with this strangely interesting yet disturbing place.

  • Conclusion: Unfortunately the low-res graphics are starting to show their age despite some great art direction and design. NIS is really going to have to kick up the sprite count a notch if they want to push their games into the next generation.

Makai Kingdom: Chronicles of the Sacred Tome

Project COE
27 July 2005
  • Conclusion: While Makai Kingdom doesn’t really move the strategy RPG genre by leaps and bounds, it does enough to stand out on its own. It borrows from past Nippon Ichi games but adds enough of its own magic to shine.
