Malicious Review | Explosion.com

"Malicious is from that unique genre of games that rarely leaves Japan: like Shadow of the Colossus, it focuses on boss battles rather than exploration, and provides a very focused action experience. The plot is very simple, requiring you to retrieve some abilities which have corrupted the world and absorb them as your own. Despite its RPG-like appearance, it feels like a typical action game you would find in an arcade (albeit with better graphics and more mechanics). In between the button mashing, dodging, floating around, and painful resets, it actually manages to be a fun game to play and well worth the $10 PSN charges." | Explosion.com (Malicious, PS Vita, PS3) 5.2/10

Guess that's why there's no demo for a title that's been on the JP PSN for years. Pity.

It's an action game, the fighting system is top of the class and one of it's own.
This reviewer just don't get how to play the game thus it becomes a brainless button mash and you can never pass a level and get a good score playing like that.
The reviewer probably couldn't even pass one level thus the low score.

You have to strategically try to link your kills with a group of enemies before you can take on the boss. It's like a puzzle action game because you have to figure out how to fight to get a good score.

People who suck at games shouldn't be in the position to review them. Wish there's a site to rate and weed out these retard reviewers.

Would give it higher than 5.2
The game can be extremely frustrating at times though.
