Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom
Game Over Online
14 December 2015
Excerpt: Majin is a fantasy adventure game where you have to rely on an AI-controlled ally throughout the entire game . Now, I know I lost most of you with that but give the game a chance and it might just surprise you as much as it did me.
Conclusion: There is a piece of dlc for it, but as far as I know it doesn't add any levels just new weapons for Tepeu and new outfits for the Majin. I do recommend the game though, especially to the JRPG fans and the puzzle hounds out there.
Excerpt: I have weak tear ducts; it's one of my very few flaws in life. I cried the other week during Mrs Doubtfire, and bawled like a baby after being forced to watch Marley and Me. I don't even like dogs.

Fans of Team Ico’s games, the eponymous Ico and Shadow of the Colossus titles, should be happy with Game Republic’s take on the genre, where...
Conclusion: Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom will unfortunately be overlooked by many, which is a real shame. It's a game that deserves attention and recognition as a sweet-centred fairytale adventure with beautiful locations and great gameplay. All in all, Majin is good, wholesome fun and well worth seeking out.

Conclusion: The combination of the likable characters, good story, good puzzles and some of the issues like loose controls, easy combat and issues with stealth even out to make the game pretty average.
PS3/Xbox 360 Review: Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom
Video Games Reloaded
17 December 2010
Summary: Main and the Forsaken Kingdom is a pretty mixed game. The partnership between Tepeu and the Majin is great, but the combat and platforming lets it down. Despite that, there are some really enjoyable moments to be found, but you need to get through the rough sections to find it, but ultimately it’s...
