The demo for Namco Bandai's new game: Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom just hit XBox Live this morning. We played it and here's our impressions.

It is interesting and something different from the norm. I will give it a rent through Gamefly and play through it to check it out. The demo got me interested in a game that I had known very little about up until now. I guess it did its job.

Everything about this game seemed like it was specifically designed for the Ps3! If I hadn't been playing it on 360, I would have thought it was a Ps3 exclusive!

I enjoyed the demo, but ur right it looked like a 360 exclusive lol shame if it had been ps3 exclusive it might have had decent graphics as well.

kmr19775019d ago

Yes, Im looking forward to this one too.

played it this morning, nothing special though.

So-called gaming journalists these days really say stupid stuff.

"Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom...a title to hold us over until The Last Guardian?"

As if to say that if a game is multi-platform it's instantly a "hold me off" title until an exclusive comes along?

I'm glad when games like CoD, Borderlands, etc., out-sell the Halos and the KillZones just to prove that some games can retain a sense of originality and hold its own without being a console exclusive.

Cenobia5019d ago (Edited 5019d ago )

That just sounds like a knee jerk reaction.

The title used here isn't even used in the actual article.

Also, TLG has a lot more devoted into it's development and a dev team with a 100% awesome ratio. Sales has nothing to do with quality.

Bathyj5019d ago

Who said its because its multiplat?

TLG is highly anticipated and generally expected to be a masterpiece.

This game is relativly unknown with similar game mechanics. Face it, it looks like a knock off.

Would it irritate you much to learn I only bought Forza to hold me off til the next GT came out? Hell, same reason I got an X360 for that matter.

Dont hate me, people make do with things till something better (or at least more wanted to them) comes along all the time.

Vegeta90005019d ago

This game looks and plays nothing like The Last Guardian (based off what was said about TLG's gameplay). I don't see how this game can hold me over for a different game that I am actually anticipating (unlike this one). It's like saying that Rock Band 3 will hold me over until Killzone 3.

Thought I was the only one who remembered Trinity lol very underrated

WET and Quantum Theory were both phenomenal

P_Bomb58d ago

I remember Stranglehold! One of the first DLC packs of its time. A bit expensive, but cheap by today’s standards.

Chocoburger58d ago

Another PS3 hidden gems list, and yet again Time Crisis 4 and Time Crisis Razin' Storm get snubbed. Such fun games, that shouldn't be forgotten. If only we got a home port of Time Crisis 5: Mastermind Edition.

-Foxtrot58d ago

WET is something I wish they'd remake, they had so many great ideas but not all of them were executed properly

It had a lot of potential

Also Wanted Weapons of Fate is another game that had some new fun gameplay ideas.
