I've been meanign to download this and have a bash, but just haven't found the time. Myabe this weekend...

nnotdead5016d ago

i too enjoyed the demo, but didn't like the camera that much.

otacon685017d ago

I was looking forward to it, but the demo...meh, I will buy Time crisis instead.

Regal_Light5016d ago

Same here. I don't see what everyone likes in it. There are tons of better games out there. Judging by the demo, I'd give the game a 6/10.....And that's being nice.

Dipso5016d ago

The demo was very brief but has left me wanting more, ordering the Majin around is easy and despite the glaring technical shortcomings of the graphics the visuals are still very nice, the Majin's animations are great and I love the amount of detail gone into the mosaics etc. Plenty of style.

I'm personally not a fan of demos, they rarely showcase a game well, this demo is 14 minutes long and already a lot of people are writing off the next 20-30 hours of the game, shame.

Call it an ICO clone, a Last Guardian wannabe, etc. But you can't deny its one of the more unique titles this year, I wish Game Republic the best of luck with this one.

The bit that really had me thinking it was a blatant rip off was when I saw the geckos running around the walls. They were the secret collectible in SoTC and they are so obscure that I can't see the Maijin developers putting it in by accident.

Actually a very good game though I'd say gameplay-wise I felt it was closer to the Mark of Kri.

pr0digyZA5016d ago

Well the game is made by many of the people who worked on ICO and SoTC so I can see why it's similar, they just stuck with their own formula.

Jaces5016d ago

It reminded me of Ico and Last Guardian (though I haven't played it it still has that beast helping in various ways), and that's not a bad thing.

I enjoyed every minute of it and plan on buying this once released, it'll keep my Last Guardian cravings down for a bit. =P Hope this game does fairly well.

How the hell can this be Last Guardian rip off when it just went gold and LG is not even 70% done yet.

just freaking play the game as it is!

I can just say Uncharted is the biggest rip off title ever created that stole so much sh* from other games, so I won't buy it!

Reborn5016d ago

The demo left me wanting more too. I mean, it weren't that visually stunning. However, it felt fun. I may end up picking this up.

despair5016d ago

it might not have been really great graphics but I really liked the art style and the color scheme. The demo was fun, things like the interactions between the thief and Majin and the change of tone from lighthearted to serious on a couple of occasions make it seem like it might be quite enjoyable.

The combat was good too people seem to forget its not how good the thief is at fighting but how you help the Majin fight.

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

WET and Quantum Theory were both phenomenal

P_Bomb57d ago

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

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.

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.
