Please do not over look this game, it is truly a beautiful masterpiece. Not only is the story well written but the game looks gorgeous. To top it all off every thing works very well.

Majin Is A Breath Of Fresh Air, I Haven't Played A Game Like This Yet, Yes There's Some Similarities With Other Games Here And There, But Definitely Not A Clone!
It Has A Great Story, Great Characters, And I Enjoy Leveling Up! I Love The Fact That The Map Is Simple And Easy To Use, And Shows You How Many Items Are In That Area, Making You Backtrack Less (Which Is Actually Helpful, Because It Levels You Up While In The Process)(ADVICE: Try To Get All The Items, You Get A Better Ending)
Controls Are Easy And The Fighting System Is Great, As Are The Graphics, Music And Character Design Work.
Don't Skip Over This Game, It Deserves To Be Played! If You Like Adventure, Puzzle And Hours Of Fun, Check It Out!

Give The Majin A Chance

I don't get the lower ratings on this game. After playing for a couple hours I realized this game is one of the best adventure-puzzle-battle games I've ever played. The graphics are really nice, the game controls are excellent, the puzzles are detailed and challenging, and everything works smoothly.

It's a co-op game in the sense that you and the Majin character have to figure out how to work together and use various powers like wind and electricity to solve puzzles and fight enemies. You control the Majin using a very intelligently designed HUD system.

Because of the Majin's voice, people are mistaking this for a children's game, maybe. The puzzles are way too complicated for children. The Majin's voice is sort of dumb, and can get a little annoying after a while, but that's relatively easy to overlook because the game is so good otherwise. There's no blood or swearing or adult themes - it's just a solid PG adventure story.

This is easily one of the best games of this type. Sort of Lara Crofty puzzles but with a better control system.
