Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom is an action-adventure platforming title that almost slipped under my radar and I'm glad it didn't. This is a great game with a story that tugs at your heartstrings. It tells the tale of a boy with no name (at first) who is living in a world taken over by darkness. There is a legend that the "Majin" were used long ago to rid the world of said evil due to their magical powers of being able to crystallize and convert dark energy into power. The boy who must save the kingdom is later named Tepeu after freeing the Majin Teotl from his bonds.
You spend the majority of the game regaining Teotl's powers and utilizing them as they come to you. You can also level up, find new outfits/gear, and collect memory shards since the Majin has a hard time remembering what his past was since his last recollections are from 100 years ago when he was imprisoned by the dark lords. You battle bosses and explore the VAST environment along the way.
There is a great deal of back tracking and this may be annoying for some but I thought it was nice to re-visit parts of the game from the beginning as well. The battle scheme was GREAT and never got old for me. You can hack and slash at your enemies but also control Teotl as your tag team partner. Finishing moves were also cool. My one main gripe is that the voice acting is very poor, they really could have done a much better job. Regardless, I had a great time playing this and I loved the story of the unbreakable bond between a man and his pet, so to speak. I definitely recommend picking this game up.
